Grocery stores are the stuff of cults and obsessions — just ask anyone who has ever stepped foot inside of a Trader Joe’s. Our readers have shared their love for many a grocery store, including the big-hitters like Costco, Whole Foods, and Aldi, but there’s a new store coming to the United States that might just be the new favorite in town.
If you’ve ever been abroad, you might be familiar with Lidl, which describes itself as “a cross between Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter.” This basically means low prices and great brands.
According to Yahoo, German brand Lidl will roll out 600 grocery stores along the East Coast by mid-2018. The earliest stores to open will be this summer in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The grocery chain has 10,000 stores in 27 countries currently, but it’s just getting started.
