Lidl is calling upon contractors to sign up for a series of events as it looks to expand its network with hundreds of new store openings.

Aimed at both creating new relationships and bolstering existing partners, the discounter will host events giving contractors the chance to learn about opportunities to work with Lidl.

The events will be attended by the supermarket’s property and construction teams, and are set to take place from July in Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and Southampton.

It follows the grocery retailer earlier this year publishing a list of potential areas it wished to expand into, which also included Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, and London.

Lidl chief development officer Richard Taylor said: “As we celebrate our 30th year, our commitment to ensuring that all households across the country have access to high-quality produce at affordable prices is stronger than ever.

“We’re planning to open hundreds of new Lidl stores and the contractors that we work with are essential in supporting this ambition. That is exactly why we’re hosting these events in Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and Southampton.

“It not only gives us a chance to meet new contacts and engage with existing partners, but also presents them with the opportunity to speak firsthand with the relevant teams here at Lidl. We would therefore encourage anyone interested in attending to sign up.”
