Closures of 11 stores, including King of Prussia, took place on Sunday.
Lidl, the German-owned grocery store, has recently closed 11 of its stores in the eastern part of the United States.
This news has come as a surprise to many, especially for the residents of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, where one of the closed stores was located.
This store had been serving the community for about 18 months, and its sudden closure has left many customers wondering about the reasons behind this decision.
The Official Statement
According to a Lidl spokesperson,
"After a thorough review of the performance of our store network, we made the difficult decision to close a small number of stores on July 16. These were underperforming locations, and we made the strategic decision to close these stores so we can focus on the locations that are closer and more convenient to more of our customers and where we are seeing significant growth."
What's Next for Lidl?
Despite the recent closures, Lidl continues to operate more than 170 locations across Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and New York.
The company is also planning to open a new store in Lorton, Virginia, on July 26.
