A new Lidl supermarket opened its doors in Lincoln on April 24 on the former Boultham dairy site on Dixon Street.

The Lidl store in St Mark’s closed earlier this week ahead of the opening of the new store.

The new Lidl opened to customers at 8am, with an official ribbon cutting opening ceremony by the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Patrick Vaughan.

The bigger, lighter store offers a doubled shopping area and a bigger in-store bakery.

The new store has also created between 15 and 20 new jobs in the city.

Lidl UK are now in the process of seeking an operator for the former St Mark’s site.
