Lidl to open second Wilmington store near mall next week

WILMINGTON — The grocery chain Lidl will open its second Wilmington location at Independence Mall next week. It will be the chain’s 23rd location in North Carolina.

The first location off Eastwood Road opened November 2019. Opening Nov. 18 at 8 a.m., Lidl will give the first 100 customers gift cards ranging from $5 to $100.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Lidl to our mix of tenants,” said Helen Lewis, general manager of Independence Mall. “We’ve found that shoppers are looking for more than just retail options from their malls, they’re looking for a one-stop-shop for all of their errands. We’re eager to see the reaction of our community and are proud to play host to Lidl’s second location in the Wilmington area.”

The new Lidl is located at 3500 Oleander Dr Suite R70.
