A NEW Lidl store is set to open in Radcliffe.

The supermarket, in Dale Street, will open its doors for the first time on Thursday February 22.

Customers are invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony at 8am, where they will be able to sample some of the German discount chain's award winning products.

A range of exclusive deals, including on an air compressor, and children's car seat, and an electric oven and grill, will also be available at the store during its first week.

The store boasts an in-store bakery, longer-style tills with dual packing, customer toilets and baby changing, and parking for cars and bicycles.

Forty jobs in the Radcliffe area have also been created.

Lidl UK’s Regional Head of Property, Nick Harvey, said: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Radcliffe.

"It is great for us to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area, and we can’t wait to start serving our multi-award winning products to the local community.”
