Discount retailer Lidl GB has announced that its new store on Hayes Way in Patchway is to open on Thursday 5th December.

Plans for a new supermarket at the Charlton Hayes site were first aired in October 2017, ahead of a round of informal public consultation. A planning application was made in November of the same year and planning permission was finally granted by South Gloucestershire Council in February 2019.

Customers are invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8am and will be offered the chance to sample some of Lidl’s award winning products throughout the day, along with exclusive deals and offers on selected products for the first week of opening.

The new supermarket forms part of the company’s ongoing expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain and has created up to 40 new jobs for the local community. The store has a 1,325sqm sales area and features facilities such as an in-store bakery, a customer toilet, baby changing facilities and 158 car parking spaces including 2 electric vehicle rapid charging points. The store construction also incorporates 600 solar panels reducing the store’s predicted energy consumption by 44 percent.

Lidl GB’s regional head of property, Glen Stidever, commented:

“We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Patchway. We have received excellent support from many local residents who currently have to travel out of Patchway, or Charlton Hayes, to complete their weekly food shop. We have also worked closely with South Gloucestershire Council to design a store befitting to its surroundings, including taking design inspiration from a neighbouring heritage aircraft hangar, and constructing artwork designed by Bruce Williams depicting a Concorde in flight at the pedestrian entrance to the site.”

“It is great for us to be able to create more jobs and investment opportunities in the area, and we can’t wait to start serving our multi-award winning products to the local community.”

The opening of the Lidl store in Patchway comes just 20 months after the German supermarket group opened an outlet in the former B&Q building in Fox Den Road, Stoke Gifford.

Lidl UK has announced that it will be holding a public consultation event to outline its proposals for a new store on Hayes Way, Patchway.

The proposed site (see map below) is a triangular plot of undeveloped land south of Hayes Way, between the Travelodge on Gloucester Road and the entrance to the new Aerospace Bristol museum. This site has existing planning permission for employment use, granted as part of the outline planning application for the wider Charlton Hayes (Northfield) development.

The public are invited to attend the event, which will take place from 2pm to 7pm on Wednesday 25th October at Patchway Community Centre, Rodway Road, Patchway BS34 5PF. Here, Lidl’s dedicated property team will be on hand to outline the supermarket group’s plans for a new store and answer any questions from the local community.

Subject to planning consent being granted by South Gloucestershire Council, the multi-million pound investment will see Lidl commit to building a new store with 1,325m² sales area on a 14,187m² site, with plans to create up to 40 new jobs.

Lidl UK’s regional head of property, Glen Stidever, commented:

“We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a Lidl in Patchway and serving our fresh, quality and incredibly good value produce which shoppers across the country have come to love. We look forward to welcoming anyone along to the public consultation event and showcasing our plans whilst answering any questions.”

The planned development in Patchway will add to Lidl’s existing portfolio of 680 stores, and will form part of the company’s growth plans which hope to see this increase to 1,500 stores in the future.

The company says it hopes to submit a planning application in November.
