USA: Lidl plans new Pennsylvania warehouse

Discount Retail Chain Lidl USA (owned by the German Schwarz Group) is planning to expand its supply chain capacity in Pennsylvania. Lidl has purchased nearly 70 acres in Bucks County, Pa. for a future warehouse at the site of the Keystone Trade Center, located along the Delaware River across from Trenton, N.J.

Lidl Spokesperson Jessica Shangle didn’t give specifics about the sale, pegged to be close to US$145 million, but did note that a project is in the works. “We are still in the early planning phase for the site and will have more to share over the coming months,” she said. Lidl acquired the property from NorthPoint Development, which owns the 1,800-acre campus on which the warehouse will sit. According to local media, the campus will eventually include more than 20 buildings.

Lidl currently operates several stores in Pennsylvania, including locations in Philadelphia, Lancaster and Reading. The construction of a warehouse comes as Lidl is set to build out a store in the town of Warminster in Bucks County. In January, Lidl held a grand opening for its newest 36,000-square-foot store in Long Island, N.Y.

The grocer runs about 170 stores in nine East Coast states, and has seen recent success as consumers continue to flock to private brands.
