Our background

Lidl Cyprus opened its first store in 2010. Just under 8 years later, it now has 16 stores and one distribution centre stretching across Cyprus, employing over 500 individuals.

We are proud to offer our customers products of the highest quality standards at the lowest prices, and we work closely with our suppliers to achieve this. We aim to use local products, wherever this is possible, and we do this by collaborating with local producers and suppliers.

The Lidl brand was created in Germany and has grown into one of today's largest grocery chains in Europe. Have a look at our timeline and learn more about our background.
