Back in the past, to do our daily shopping we needed to visit a number of small shops, one for dairy products, one for fresh fruit and vegetables, one for cleaning supplies... even more, if we couldn’t find what we were looking for. Nowadays, we have it easy – one big store with everything we would need in one place. Wide choice, low prices – what more could you want? Hmm... what if instead of wandering between isles, we could check available products from home? And what if we could check all the promotions beforehand? To plan our shopping list accordingly? Wouldn’t it be nice? Actually, it is. With Lidl.
Lidl is a German international discount supermarket chain with over 600 stores in the UK and about 200 in Ireland. The company was founded in 1930 and has spread in over 20 countries all over Europe. The unusual name comes from a surname of one of the business partners of the founder. Lidl is known for generally low prices kept thanks to a no-frills approach to retail, which in this case is displaying most of the products in their original delivery cartoons for the customers to take the products straight from those cartoons. This significantly reduces costs and is one of the strategies used by Lidl to maintain attractive prices with no loss in the quality of offered products.
You don’t need to go to on of many Lidl stores to find out what’s in stock. A dedicated, fully-functional website was created to help you find what you’re looking for, to inform you about all the latest deals and to keep you in touch with the whole Lidl community. Visit Lidl.uk website to find out what new products you can buy from the following categories: Fresh Meat, Fresh Fish, Fruit & Veg, Bakery, Chilled & Frozen, Beer, Wines & Spirits, Food Cupboard and Household. Every main section is further divided into smaller subcategories so that you can easily find what you’re looking for. You won’t see just dry lists of products – you are given information about their origins, tips for storing, recipes with the use of given products and customer reviews.

Surprise! Lidl Surprise!
#LidlSurprises is an innovatory marketing campaign that addresses people who raised scepticism or doubts about Lidl products’ quality. Being careful as we are, we could suspect some catch behind such low prices as Lidl offers. That’s why Lidl invites sceptic people to spend a day at one of Lidl farms so that all people can see for themselves how fresh food products are prepared to be sold in Lidl stores. If you want to find more also about other Lidl products, including honest opinions of other buyers (or “Lidlers” as they’re called), go to My Lidl to read product reviews, chat with people and share various tips and tricks with them.
Reading online leaflets is not the only way to find out about the newest Lidl sales and discounts. Check out “Sensational Deals” category to find what is on sale at the moment.
