Poland: Lidl is planning record investments for 2021
In 2021, discount retail chain Lidl Poland (owned by the German Schwarz Gruppe) wants to spend PLN 1.5 billion (US$400Mn) on the development of the store network. This is 50% more than in the previous year, according to the information from "Rzeczpospolita".
Discounter Lidl will start building a new distribution center in spring. Aleksandra Robaszkiewicz, spokeswoman for Lidl Polska, told Rzeczpospolita that the first deliveries from the new warehouse to stores will start in the first half of 2022. Ultimately, over 200 people will find work.
Andrzej Porębski, a member of the management board of Lidl Polska, said that Lidl's 12th distribution center in Dobroszyce will supply stores located mainly in the Dolnośląskie Voivodeship.
Lidl in Poland currently has almost 760 stores. In 2020, the chain was enlarged by 38 discounters.
