Lidl is Opening its First Three Atlanta-Area Stores Soon

It should be noted that Lidl already has a presence in the Augusta area. I wonder if and when it’ll expand into Alabama and Florida.

I live fairly close to the Snellville, GA store.  I will definitely try them out when they open.

Lidl have had stores over here for many years. Their arch rival is Aldi who also have a huge and growing number of stores. I can only think this will be good thing as Aldi in the US will now have direct German competition and should benefit customers in terms of prices. It could however squeeze the likes of Family Dollar and Dollar General out of the market if they're not careful.

When these foreign discount store chains first came to the UK they were very low end in terms of store layout and quality of the produce. Not now though, they are just as good as buying premium branded foods but without the premium price. We do most of our shopping at Aldi now as there are two stores within walking distance. The local Lidl closed a few years ago. Out of the two chains I think Lidl has the slight edge on quality.

I see there's a Lidl just outside Philadelphia which is close to where I'll be passing on my trip in March. I might give it a try and see how it compares to the European Lidl's.

This was the case in the US as well.
