UK: Scotland's biggest Lidl opens in Edinburg

Discount Retail Chain Lidl (owned by German Schwarz Gruppe) has opened its biggest ever store in Scotland today as shoppers flocked to get cut-price deals. The mega-store, on Edinburgh's Granton Road, has undergone an enormous extension after originally opening in 1995 in a bid to meet growing shopper demand.

During the first week of opening, shoppers will be treated to exclusive deals and offers on everything from bargain TVs to hoovers. The Daily Record has been given an exclusive first look inside the brand new discount supermarket ahead of its opening today.

Dozens of eager shoppers queued around the store as it opened at 8am today in order to bag the best offers. Staff made the finishing touches to the giant store, which is a whopping 1,438m² - making it the largest Lidl in Scotland.

The supermarket will include all Lidl customer favourites such as the in-store bakery and middle aisle.

Shoppers can also get their hands on exclusive first deals during the first week of opening.
