Lidl has confirmed that its supermarket at Newmills Road, Dalkeith, which first opened in 2000 and has been serving the Midlothian communities for the last two decades, will re-open on 28 October 2021 at 8am.

The store, which will hold the title of being the retailer’s largest store in Scotland, has undergone an extension and programme of modernisation as part of the company’s £1.3bn investment in its estate across Great Britain in 2020 & 2021. Once opened, the larger 1670m2 sales area will also see additional jobs created for the local economy.

The multi-million pound investment will also see the addition of upgraded facilities including customer toilets and baby changing, rapid electric vehicle charging spaces as well as refurbishment of the store to improve the overall shopping experience. Lidl’s Dalkeith site will also have money-back recycling stations installed, in preparation for the Scottish Government’s Deposit Return Scheme rollout in July 2022.

Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Gordon Rafferty, commented:

“We would like to thank all those who have played a part in making our Dalkeith store Lidl’s biggest and best yet. It’s fantastic to be able to offer people a superb shopping experience, while also creating more jobs. We look forward to serving our multi-award winning products to the local community.”

The retailer’s ever-growing estate of over 100 stores spans Scotland from Kirkwall in the north, to Stranraer in the south, offering value products from over 60 Scottish suppliers.

The store opening times will be between 8am – 10pm Monday to Sunday.
