Being an adult has its highs and lows…..but how exciting we have a new Lidl store opening near us!!!! Lidl Whiteley opened on 31st January 2019 and I was super happy!
Having a Lidl opening up that is only an 8-minute drive away was great for us, and as Lidl Whiteley is just off the motorway, it’s super easy to get to and find.
I think the car park is a good size, but we visited on a Monday afternoon. I do wonder if it would be pretty full up on a weekend though. There are some fantastic Parent and Child Bays right near the entrance which are great as they are near the trolley park too.
Don’t forget a trolley coin for the trolleys! There was plenty of differently sized trolleys, with different ones for different needs like baby car seats and wheelchair ones.
Inside is light and airy, I do love the new Lidl stores as they don’t feel squeezed in and small. The day we visited there was a lot of empty boxes in the fresh food area, but the next time we visited this was much better and much tidier.
Lidl at Whiteley has a bakery too which is so tempting as you first walk through the door! Also, top tip try their flowers, I have often purchased some from Lidl and they are always so fresh. Even the ones for outdoors in the garden have flourished well.
If you haven’t visited Lidl before it is well worth trying it out. There are so many items that are their own brand which are so tasty. There aren’t many items that I’m not keen on, or can even tell the difference in taste! But you soon learn what items you love and don’t love.
We’re a family of five and I reckon we save about £20 a week shopping at Lidl, so I am so pleased we now have Lidl Whiteley to visit each week easily. That’s a big saving and one we would be quite happy with!
People often joke about the tills at Lidl and I have always found that they have really short runoffs after they’ve scanned the items. Not Lidl at Whiteley, they have rollers so the items roll down the till towards you. This is much easier to get packed quickly and keep up with their scanning!
