First look around new Derby Lidl open at old Buzz Bingo site

Derby’s newest Lidl store opened its doors for the first time today, Thursday, February 17, and we’ve been down to check it out.

The good news is that it is offing exclusive deals for the next few days for its first customers but you will have to be quick.

The store on Sinfin Lane, Foresters Park, has been built on the site of an old Buzz Bingo store, is the latest but not the last Lidl to pop up in the city, and is thought to create up to 40 new jobs for the local community.

You can see what’s in store, so to speak, at the bottom of this article where we’ve published dozens of photographs of the supermarket, part of Lidl’s £1.3 billion expansion and regeneration project across the UK for 2021 and 2022.

It opened a new store in Alvaston last year and is set to open a store on Uttoxeter New Road in the spring, currently under construction.

Introductory offers at the newest Lidl site include:

  • Playtive Wooden Play House (£74.99) on Thursday 17 February
  • Parkside Wooden Raised Planter (£19.99) on Friday 18 February
  • Phillips Shaver and Groomer (£24.99) on Saturday 19 February

The site has a shop floor of 1,336 square metres which is about the size of five tennis courts. It includes an onsite bakery, customer toilets and parking for both cars and cyclists.

Surplus produce from the store and customer donations will be given to several local charities including Doorways Derby, Springwater Community Group and King’s Kitchen to local families and individuals in need.

Lidl told Derbyshire Live: “It is fantastic that we are able to open our doors and welcome everyone into our new store in Derby. We have received overwhelming support from local residents, and we would like to thank everyone who has played a part in delivering this new store. We now look forward to serving our multi-award winning products to the community.”

The store opening times will be between 8am – 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am – 4pm on Sunday.
