Waldorf, MD- Lidl has just purchased and broken ground on a 9 acre parcel for their new grocery store in Waldorf. The Property is located at the corner of Smallwood Drive and St. Patrick’s Drive across the street from the County Library. The project is in its planning stage so there is no opening date.
As part of its ongoing expansion along the East Coast, Lidl US announced today plans to open 25 new stores in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia by spring of 2020. By the end of next year, Lidl expects to sell its award-winning products in more than 100 stores and create more than 1,000 new jobs across nine states.
“We are committed to long-term growth in the United States and always strive to locate in the most convenient locations for our shoppers,” said Johannes Fieber, CEO of Lidl US. “These new stores are part of the next steps in our U.S. expansion. Over the next year, we are excited to introduce more customers to Lidl’s award-winning quality, reliably low prices, and convenient shopping experience.”
As part of this move to operate in the most convenient locations, Lidl will also close two stores in Rockingham and Kinston, North Carolina this summer. All employees there will be given the opportunity to relocate and work at other stores within Lidl’s growing markets.
Earlier this week, Lidl also announced it will hold a hiring event to fill around 100 new positions at its regional headquarters and distribution center in Alamance County, North Carolina.
LiDL will be opening other stores in Maryland at the following locations: Catonsville, College Park, District Heights, Hagerstown, and LAnham
Lidl is a German discount supermarket based in Neckarsulm, Germany.
It operates over 10,000 stores across Europe and approximately 52 so far in the United States. It is very similar to an Aldi Market and it’s their biggest competitor.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
