Discount supermarket Lidl has confirmed it intends to build a brand-new store in Llanelli

The announcement comes as Lidl is working with developer Arbenigol Limited who has exchanged contracts with Carmarthenshire County Council, securing the site on Trostre Retail Park.

The new store would consist of a 1,410m² sales an in-store bakery, customer toilets, baby changing and 130 car parking spaces. 

Lidl say the multi-million-pound investment will result in the creation of around 40 new jobs for the local economy.

It’s part of the supermarket chain’s ambitious £1.3bn store investment across Great Britain in 2021 and 2022.

Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Paul Hebblethwaite, commented: “We are delighted to confirm plans to open our second store for Llanelli and serve even more of the local community our fresh, quality, great value products.

“We are firmly committed to continuing to develop the local area through investment and job creation. The team are very much looking forward to confirming a date for our public consultation when we will outline our plans and get input from those who will directly benefit from the new store.”

This would be Lidl’s second store in Llanelli, with another outlet just a mile and a half away along the Machynys link road in Morfa.

It comes as fellow discount supermarket ALDI is also in the process of building a second store in the town, also at Trostre.
