Lidl to close its Atherton store
9:10am Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
THE Lidl supermarket in Tyldesley Road, Hindsford will close on Saturday.
A company spokesperson said: "Lidl UK have other new or modernised stores in the locality which can offer a better shopping experience than the Atherton store, and the decision to close was taken following an offer by Iceland to lease the store. All of our staff have been offered positions in other Lidl stores."
Nine members of staff were offered relocation but Lidl declined to reveal how many employees had accepted this option.
Food retailers Iceland told the Journal: “We are planning to open a store there by the end of the year,” but declined to comment further on the move to the building that opened six years ago under the Lidl banner on the site of the former Carders Arms pub.
