How the new Lidl store will look when it opens in Kirkcaldy this summer.

A spokesman for Lidl didn’t give an exact opening date at this stage, but said: “We can confirm that the new Kirkcaldy store is due to open this Summer.”

Lidl opened its current Esplanade site in 2002, but says it has outgrown the premises. It originally planned to move in 2017, but the development was hit by a number of delays.

The plans for the site are a welcome relief to many as it has lain empty for many years. Locals are looking forward to shopping in the new store when it opens its doors.
