Lidl opens in Arrecife

Last month Lidl finally opened in Arrecife.

The German supermarket chain is opening 11 stores in the Canary Islands, and apparently there were long queues to enter the store when it opened on 11th March.

Comments online have talked generally about the opening being good for tourists and locals alike, who will benefit from lower prices compared to those found in the smaller supermarkets in the resorts.

Of course, those tourists who stay in self-catering apartments but do not have the use of a hire car will not be able to benefit directly, so it is vital for them that the other supermarkets do not suffer.

Lidl is located on the Eastern side of Arrecife in Calle Océano Atlántico.

What do you think?  Have you been to Lidl in Arrecife yet?

    Try which has at least the prices of the latest offers on it.  You need to put in a postcode, so put one from Lanzarote in so it gives you details from the Canary islands as the mainland offers can differ.
