Edinburgh Judo players help open Lidl’s 14th Edinburgh store

Local Judo players ‘pinned down’ the ribbon on Lidl’s newest Scottish store this morning in Meadowbank Retail Park.

As the ‘groundwork’ was completed for the Lidl at Meadowbank, the youngsters from nearby Edinburgh Judo took a break from their mid-term club to ‘throw down’ some Middle of Lidl deals and open the doors of the new store along with coach, double Commonwealth champ and Toyko 2020 Olympian, Sarah Adlington.

Creating 40 local jobs, Meadowbank further cements Lidl’s footprint in the capital. Situated on Meadowbank Retail Park at 8 Moray Park Terrace, Edinburgh, the new store will be open from 8am-10pm from Monday to Sunday. The new store will have a 1,280m2 sales area and include an in-store bakery and customer toilets with baby changing.

To mark the opening, and as part of Lidl’s stated commitment to support healthy lifestyles through exercise, the new Meadowbank store made donations of fruit and healthy snacks to Edinburgh Judo and nearby Meadowbank Sports Centre.

Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Ross Jackson, commented: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped make Lidl’s 14th store in Edinburgh a reality. The new store will continue to bring great products and fantastic offers to the local community, along with high quality, fresh Scottish produce throughout the year.” 

From Kirkwall in the north and Stranraer in the south, the retailer’s ever-growing estate of over 100 stores spans Scotland, with products from over 80 Scottish suppliers.
