“They are fully of surprises.”

published 27/06/2015

ProGood value for money.

ConsCheckout policy makes you feel unwelcome.

My Nearest Store. Well for a number of years if I wanted to go to my nearest Lidl I would have had to travel a good bit out of the town to a nearby city but thankfully now they have expanded into the town which is great, the store nearest to me has been here for a few years now and it has had a...

“Pride or Prejudice?”

ProThey're the best kept secret in town!

ConsCan't use my beloved credit card.

"Did you say Lidl -I wouldn’t be seen dead in the place!" I've found that's a typical reaction whenever the "L" word is mentioned in the company of the non-cognoscenti. I counter that this Company (and a couple of their Continent inspired cousins) is a retail phenomena that even the most...

I had never been into a Lidl store before, up until a few weeks ago. I pass one every day on my way to work and just recently we have been receiving leaflets full of vouchers and offers currently on in the store. These make great reading whilst eating breakfast! I decided to go and see what all...

“I want a Lidl of that !!”

ProCheap

Conspay for bag's, untidy stores

I bet for many of you on here, when you hear the name ‘Lidl’ think cheap food, bad quality, for poor people, and until recently I would have fully agreed with you. My opinion of the German supermarket lidl has never been very high and as an influential teenager I would have never been...

I felt that to give a better review of Lidl, I would divide the whole experience up into segments in order to make it easy to read. My first encounter with Leedl was in Carlisle. I was sceptical at first, imagining that the store would be full of low grade inferior products. What a surprise I was...

“Every Lidl penny all adds up”

ProGreat prices, most food is good

Conslimited range, shabby store

We all hate spending our hard earned cash on boring things like groceries so we are all trying to save money by buying bargains and trying budget stores. Leading the way in this revolution are the German owned chains such as Aldi, Netto and Lidl. I am used to this style of supermarket as my...

LIDL SUPERMARKET. Lidl, a 'low price' supermarket has two branches in my area, a town centre shop and an out of town superstore. The company began in the UK back in the mid 1990's and now has several hundred stores across the country. The Lidl concept is a 'stack 'em high, sell 'em low' one. The...

Back in 1994 there were rumours of a new phenomenon flying around the country. Tales of a new supermarket originally from Germany that offered extremely low prices and was rumoured to have the like of Asda and Tescos quaking in their cut price boots. They were a novelty, you could wander in and...

“You get a lot for a Lidl”

published 21/08/2007

ProVery functional, great value, lovely chocolate

ConsLimited range of items

Our Germanic friends have invaded these shores with various no-frills, budget-tastic supermarkets. One of these, Lidl, sprouted a brand new branch near me so I decided to investigate it after getting fatigued with the usual fare from Tesco. This was a good move as after visiting Lidl a few times...

published 16/11/2008

Progreat prices and no frills

Conssome unknown brands

In this current climate of feeling the pinch we are told that people are abandoning their preferences for brands and going for cheaper options. No retailer embodies this trend more than Lidl. If you have time, and we seldom do, as we all work 60+ hours a week and tend to try to get the shopping...

About six or seven years ago, I heard about Lidl, people were saying how it was a stack them high sell them cheap, totally different from the supermarkets I had been used to. Well I ventured in to have a look. I remember the prices were cheap, tinned food at 5p, 6p. That impressed me, I bought a...

published 06/01/2005

ProCheap and surprisingly cheerful!

ConsNo baskets

I used to live in London and we were surrounded by supermarkets and food shops: Tesco, Sainsbury, Safeway, Waitrose, M&S - you name them; we had them. Our nearest supermarket was Lidl. I only ever went there on about two or three occasions. It was awful! It was a fairly new store but seemed so...

I have known the supermarket chain ever since they first arrived to England, when the built one of the first stores 5 minutes away from my house when i was barely a teenager. At a young age, i didn't really take much notice, after all why would a young girl living at home really care. Although i...

Lidl was founded in Germany in the 1930s as a grocery wholesaler, opening their first store in 1973. During the 1990s Lidl began opening stores throughout Europe and now have more than 380 stores. I have two near me, both within a 5 minute drive in opposite directions. I only really venture into...

“A 'lidl' about Lidl”

published 28/11/2009

ProGood for some things

ConsNot so good for other things

Until a couple of years ago, I didn't even know Lidl existed. This was partly due to living pretty much inside my head most of the time, and even when I did spot my closest Lidl branch whilst a bus I was on one day passed by the shop, I for some peculiar reason got the impression that it was a...
