Lidl to open new unit in 11th District

Lidl will open its long-planned unit in Albertfalva in Budapest’s 11th District within weeks, following a lengthy permit process, Napi concluded after visiting the construction site.

The retailer purchased the land that hosted a former paint factory long ago, but obtaining all permits took years.

Lidl was ordered to replace the soil, which it did in 2008, but the water authority required further drilling for checking and additional work to improve the soil quality on the site.

Lidl will announce the opening date only when it has all the necessary permits and everything is in place, spokeswoman Judit Tőzsér underlined.
