On Thursday, 2 June, the Lidl supermarket chain will open its first 15 stores in Lithuania. There will be 5 stores in Vilnius, two in Kaunas, and one each in Klaipėda, Šiauliai, Alytus, Marijampolė, Kėdainiai, Kretinga, Telšiai and Mažeikiai.
Lidl, which is due to open a raft of stores across Lithuania in the coming months, has signed up a number of major Lithuanian food companies to supply its outlets, indicating it may open as early as the beginning of June.
Everyone has heard that the German retail chain Lidl is to open stores in Lithuania but that is pretty much everything anyone knows about it. Is this absence of fanfare an oversight or a brilliant PR move?
