New High Wycombe Lidl creates 20 jobs
TWENTY new jobs are being created as a supermarket chain comes to High Wycombe.
Lidl will open on West Richardson Street at the bottom of Desborough Avenue on April 26.
The company, which started as Lidl & Schwarz Grocery Wholesale in 1930s Germany, began trading in the UK in 1994.
The official ribbon cutting of the new store will be done by Wycombe District Council Deputy Leader Cllr Arif Hussain.
The Conservative politician, who is heading the council's fight to tackle unemployment, hailed the supermarket's introduction as good news for the district's economy.
“I’m particularly pleased to see the development of this new supermarket come to fruition as it is marks another step in the continued growth of High Wycombe,” he said.
"I welcome Lidl’s investment in our local economy and the benefit of new jobs and increased consumer choice that it brings.
“The regeneration and redevelopment projects across the area demonstrate the dedication and passion that already exists amongst investors. “We are determined to make real progress to revitalise the district and deliver a better future for the people who live here."
Georgina Hall of Lidl said: “The new High Wycombe store not only offers a value for money shopping experience to local residents but it has also created 20 new jobs, which is positive news in the current economic climate.”
