We have a brand new Lidls in Wallington, Surrey. After trying the one in Morden I was a bit sceptical as the Morden store always seems dirty but packed! However, the Wallington store is always empty and because it it new, all the refusrbishments are clean! I understand they keep their prices low because they stack the food in cardboard boxes rather than on shelves. This makes the store seem a bit scruffy, but who cares if the prices are low.
The weekly offers on non-food items are excellent. I always visit to pick up a brochure even if I am not buying anything. They do some great kids' toys, from a non-branded version of Jenga (£3 something) to chunky chalks for £1.99.
Although I wouldn't buy some of their tinned food, the cheeses and cold meats are fantastic - tasty and cheap. I do not, however, buy their toiletries and they always seem so perfumed and have rather 'grannified' packaging!
I have visited Lidls today to stock up for the kids' 6 week summer holidays - £50.00 and 10 bags later, my fridge and freezer are full!!
