GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT/WNCN) – Lidl’s first North Carolina stores will open on June 15 in Kinston.
Its first eastern North Carolina stores will open June 15 in Kinston, Greenville, and Rocky Mount. The grocer is also opening two more stores in Sanford and Winston-Salem. Ribbon cuttings are set for 7:40 a.m. and will kick off a four-day grand opening.
The five North Carolina stores are among nine total Lidl U.S. will open the same day.
A location in Wake Forest is scheduled to open sometime this summer, but not on June 15, according to Business Insider. That location is at 1120 South Main Street.
“We are extremely excited to open our first five stores in North Carolina on June 15,” said Brendan Proctor, President and CEO of Lidl US. “Lidl is grocery shopping retooled and refreshed, and we are looking forward to opening our doors in communities across the state in a few short weeks.”
Earlier this year, Lidl announced that it was hiring for many jobs in North Carolina. The pay for store associate positions will start at $12 per hour, plus benefits, which can include health, dental and vision plans, and a 401(k) retirement plan with a company match, according to a Lidl news release.
As part of the grand opening celebrations, customers at each store will be able to take advantage of special, limited-time grand opening deals and offers. In fact, the first 100 customers to arrive at each NC store will receive a wooden coin for a chance to win up to $100 in Lidl gift cards.
Shoppers will also be able to sample an array of Lidl’s products and get a complimentary Lidl reusable bag, but only while supplies last. The fun continues throughout Grand Opening weekend with games, activities, prizes and more.
