Great news for Clayton shoppers: Lidl received approval on Monday, June 26 from the Clayton Planning Board to build a new 36,000 square foot store on U.S. 70 in Clayton!

According to the Town of Clayton website, the store will be built at 12856 U.S. 70 Business which is across from the Clayton Walmart. The 3.8 acre site was once a Camptown RV dealership.

At this time there are no details available about when this store will open.

The store in Wake Forest will be opening on July 13.

Additional information about Lidl from their recent press release:

Newly-Built, Beautiful Stores and Easy-to-Shop Layouts: All Lidl stores opening this summer will be newly constructed facilities, featuring an easy-to-shop layout of 20,000 square feet with only six aisles.

Award Winning Wines: Lidl’s exclusive wine range, which is curated by Lidl’s in-house Master of Wine, Adam Lapierre, has won more than 200 medals this year. The company was the top performing retailer at both the 2017 LA International Wine Competition and the 2017 INDY International Wine Competition, where Lidl also became the best performing exhibitor in the 25-year history of the competition with 104 medals, including Sparkling Wine of the Year.

Fresh Baked Goods: Customers will be greeted each day with the smell of Lidl’s top-quality breads and pastries, which are baked fresh throughout the day. A bakery will be located at the entrance of each store.
Healthy, Sustainable Choices: Lidl is committed to offering a wide range of healthy and sustainable options. All fresh and frozen seafood in Lidl’s everyday assortment will be certified sustainable by either the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP), or the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). Lidl’s high quality private label products will not have certified synthetic colors, added MSG or partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) containing trans fats.

Organic and Gluten-Free Options: Lidl will carry a variety of organic and gluten-free items including organic fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, and packaged food items, which will all be available at the lowest possible prices.

Lidl’s Top Quality Products: About 90 percent of the high quality groceries available at Lidl will be exclusive brand products. Each product on Lidl shelves will be rigorously tested to ensure that it meets our high quality standards. Several items have already won acclaim in the United States, including award-winning cheeses recognized in the 2017 Los Angeles International Dairy Competition, and a range of baby products that have earned the Parent-Tested, Parent-Approved seal of approval.

Lidl Surprises: Lidl offers an ever-changing selection of non-food products each week that will be in stores for a limited time. The selection will include fitness gear, small kitchen appliances, toys, and outdoor furniture, among other non-food items.

Lidl operates more than 10,000 stores in 27 countries throughout Europe, offering customers the highest quality fresh produce, meat, bakery items and a wide array of household products at the lowest possible prices. Lidl first established its U.S. headquarters in Arlington County, Virginia in June 2015. Since then, it has announced regional headquarters and distribution centers in Spotsylvania County, Virginia; Alamance County, North Carolina and Cecil County, Maryland.

    claytonsaver - I bet you will. Every employee with whom I spoke at the Wilson store was polite and friendly and the prices were excellent on many every day products. I think you should at least check them out and not let their silly commercials keep you from saving money.

    Will I like them even though I dislike their ads (where they bleep out/fake out use of swear words)?
