Lidl is coming to Ashburn and we’ve got your first glimpse of what local residents can expect when they walk inside.
The Burn first reported about Lidl (rhymes with “needle”) last October — how the German-based grocer was making a major push into the United States and had chosen a spot in Ashburn at the northwest corner of Claiborne Parkway and Broadlands Boulevard.
While construction is underway at the Ashburn location aiming for a presumed 2018 opening, the Lidl brand celebrated a major milestone this past week as they opened their first 10 stores in the United States. Six Lidls opened in North Carolina, two in South Carolina and two in Virginia (Virginia Beach and Hampton).
Billed as a cross between Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter, Lidl is known for its bakery, its wines and, perhaps most importantly, it’s lower prices. Take a look at the images below from the new Lidl stores that just opened — you can bet the Ashburn Lidl will look very similar.
