LIDL is on the lookout for new store sites across Glasgow and is offering a finder’s fee to anyone that identifies one.

The supermarket chain said it will offer 1.5% of the total freehold purchase price or 10% of the first year’s rent for leaseholds, which would equate to £22,500 for a completed £1.5m site purchase.

The firm said it is looking for spots in Baillieston, Cathcart, Crookston, Drumchapel, Ibrox, Merchant City, Springburn and Summerston.

It is also on the lookout for sites in Aberdeenshire, Ayrshire, Dundee, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Fife and North Lanarkshire.

The move is part of plans to reach 1100 stores by the end of 2025.

Richard Taylor, chief development officer at Lidl GB, said: “We know that the majority of Scottish shoppers still love doing their shopping in person and we are as committed as ever to opening new stores and enhancing our existing ones.

“We’re opening an average of one new store a week, which is incredible, and our teams have done a phenomenal job of keeping that pace going over the last couple of years. But there are still communities up and down the country that are telling us how much they want – and need - a Lidl store.

“We work with some of the best people in the industry to identify new sites, but we also know how engaged our future and existing customers are and we want to build on this.

“Our finder’s fees are, therefore, available to absolutely anyone that can identify a viable option for a new store that we’re not already aware of, and we welcome any suitable suggestions that will help up us to meet our ambitious target of 1100 stores by the end of 2025.”
