Help Lidl find new sites in Fife and earn £20k
Lidl say they will pay a finder’s fee to anyone who identifies a suitable site for a new store, including locations in Fife.
The retailer has announced that it is calling on the Scottish public for support in identifying sites for new stores across Scotland.
In Fife it is looking to build stores in Dunfermline North and South, Kirkcaldy North-East, Leven and St Andrews. The fee is either 1.5% of the total freehold purchase price or 10% of first year’s rent for leaseholds, which would equate to £22,500 for a completed £1.5m site purchase.
The company is investing £1.3 billion in its expansion across 2021 and 2022, has revealed that it is offering a finder’s fee to members of the public who successfully identify suitable sites for new Lidl stores. Since the beginning of 2022, Lidl has already opened 23 new stores across the UK.
Richard Taylor, Chief Development Officer said at Lidl GB said: “We know that the majority of Scottish shoppers still love doing their shopping in person and we are as committed as ever to opening new stores and enhancing our existing ones. “We’re opening an average of one new store a week, which is incredible, and our teams have done a phenomenal job of keeping that pace going over the last couple of years.
“But there are still communities up and down the country that are telling us how much they want – and need – a Lidl store. We work with some of the best people in the industry to identify new sites, but we also know how engaged our future and existing customers are and we want to build on this.
“Our finder’s fees are, therefore, available to absolutely anyone that can identify a viable option for a new store that we’re not already aware of, and we welcome any suitable suggestions that will help up us to meet our ambitious target of 1,100 stores by the end of 2025.”
