We can reveal that Blantyre LIDL store is to be demolished!
However, before existing shoppers panic, the store is to be replaced by a brand new, larger, state of the art LIDL store. The proposal has now been submitted to SLC planning and if passed, will see a new superstore built on the same plot of land. The new shop will be larger with a better layout and have many eco friendly features, such as arrays of solar panels on the roof. Attention too is being given to bottle bank deposit scheme which will become legislated in Scotland in April 2022.
The new store will have a larger shop entrance facing out to Glasgow Road, although entry will still be by the same, existing access road off the roundabout. The existing car park of 113 spaces, whilst not currently fully utilised would be reduced to 91 spaces to make room for the larger shop footprint.
A planning decision has still to be made.
