Lidl Ramps Up for New Location in D.C.

Popular Germany-based retailer, Lidl, continues to expand its footprint in D.C. with plans to open its third location in the nation’s capital. The new store will be located at 4000 Wisconsin Avenue NW, in Washington D.C. within a new mixed-use development, Upton Place, that will showcase 689 new residential units and 100,000 square feet of retail. Set to open at the end of 2023, this location continues the sequence of new Lidl stores opening in D.C. following the Skyland Town Center location that first broke ground in January as well as the new Columbia Heights development – both expected to open in late 2022. Founded in 1973, the global grocer operates over 11,000 stores across Europe and the United States. First arriving to the U.S. in 2017, there are more than 150 stores across the East Coast today. Lidl continues to focus on offering premium products at a non-premium price by sourcing high quality suppliers and eliminating any unnecessary costs – such as restocking shelves in the boxes product arrives in and implementing a “bring your own bag” policy.
