WFMY News 2 first reported the grocery store is coming to Greensboro and since then it has sparked a fiery conversation on our Facebook page.
Shoppers in Eden said they were promised a Lidl store. However, construction that was once underway has stopped.
Here’s what we’ve found out. Lidl did start working on the Eden location in 2017. However, construction has stopped and the project is currently on hold. WFMY News 2 talked with city leaders who said they don’t expect that to change anytime soon. They also didn’t give a reason for the halt in construction. WFMY News 2 is still waiting for a response from Lidl.
Lidl has opened 18 stores in North Carolina since June 2017.
