Lidl will open a new store on December 12, this time in Iasi, Eastern Romania. The discounter’s local network will reach 129 stores.
All of the 107 local Plus Discount supermarkets have been rebranded into Lidl stores this June and new built stores have been opened since.
Discount supermarket chain Lidl bought the local low-cost chain Plus from German owner Tengelmann in February 2010. Part of the German Lidl & Schwartz Group, which already runs Kaufland stores in Romania, Lidl took over the entire Plus business in Romania and Bulgaria, including all employees. Plus entered the Romanian market in 2005.
