EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – The Lidl Store on Fire Road has scheduled its grand opening for Wednesday, April 14. The event has been modified to ensure the safety of customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A ribbon cutting will be held shortly before the store opens at 8 a.m.  The first 100 customers will receive gift cards ranging from $5-100. Customers can also register to win a $500 gift card. Music will be provided by a local DJ.

The opening is part of Lidl’s plan to open 50 new stores on the East Coast by the end of 2021, bringing the total number of stores in the U.S. to more than 150. The company has made a $500 million investment in its new stores, which will create 2,000 new jobs.
