Lidl re-opened in Yate this morning with huge deals across the store.

The store was formally opened by longest serving staff member, Christine Milsom, who cut the ribbon at 7am.

New store deals have prices slashed with offers including trampolines for just £49.99.

The store closed for the refurbishment on January 1, and reopened today following extensive renovations.

Store manager Kelly Farrer said:

"We are so pleased with the way the store looks now.

"We have lost some floor space but have maximised the areas to give the best range of products to our customers.

"The product range has increased and the 'middle of Lidl' has doubled. We have so many more products in our fresh and frozen sections also.

"Myself and the team here are looking forward to greeting our customers. We would also like to extend our thanks to Christine for her 25 years of service to Lidl, commemorated with her cutting our re-opening ribbon this morning."

Lidl has introduced a range of social distancing measures, the include managing the volume of customers in store and offering dedicated cleaning stations for baskets and trolleys. Hand sanitiser will be available and floor markings are in place.

Additionally, the supermarket has installed protective screens at checkouts along with the introduction of protective visors and masks for colleagues to wear if they wish, and is continuing to encourage customers to pay by contactless payment methods where possible.

The new store has taken on additional staff members and more are to be recruited. If you are interested in a career with Lidl go to www.
