Showing itself «committed to Portugal», the brand reopened 4 supermarkets in Porto, Chaves, Castelo Branco and Santiago do Cacém. On February 25th it opened its 261st store in Rio Tinto, Gondomar, totalling more than 80 stores in the country’s Northern region.
The new Rio Tinto supermarket was built from scratch. The project included the construction of a roundabout to improve traffic and accesses to the store, besides paving the streets on the surrounding areas and installing new recycling bins in cooperation with the municipality.
Quoted by Idealista, the brand mentioned that «seeking to foster a healthy lifestyle over Rio Tinto’s population and supporting sports, Lidl also built, at rua Mestre Joaquim Pereira Ramos, a Sports Centre and in its surrounding areas, a square with public parking, lighting and gardens».
