Lidl USA

LIDL
Greater Manchester store
Lidl have finally arrived in the US, but only in the mid-Atlantic right now.  I posted on them five years ago, but decided to start from scratch instead of just updating an old article.  They will now have to compete with Aldi here in America as they do Europe (neither are in Canada yet, but similar chains exist there).  As usual, CNY will be the main focus as that's what I know best, but I know I can try elsewhere too:



Jordan - 9 Mechanic St (former Tops and Big M)
Canandaigua - vacancy on US 20/NY 5 and 332
Fulton - former Fays/Eckerd or kmart on NY 481 (arch-rival yet to be built up or down the street)
Cortland - former P&C on NY 41 and US 11
Oswego - former Price Chopper near Fort Ontario and Port of Oswego or Rite Aid/Eckerd/Fays on NY 104 & 481
Chittenango - former Kinney Drugs on NY 5 and 13
Syracuse - former Nojaim Bros on Gifford and S West Sts.
Bridgeport - former Kinney or Victory on NY 31 and/or 298
Cicero - former Burlington Coat Factory near Drivers Village
New Hartford - former Price Chopper on NY 5A
Rochester - former CVS on NY 15
Irondequoit - Skyview on the Ridge (ex-Medley Ctr)
Liverpool - former kmart or Price Chopper on CR 57
deWitt - former Dicks on NY 5
East Syracuse - former CountryMax/Agway on NY 290
Henrietta - former Tops or other vacancy on NY 252
Auburn - former P&C
Geneva - former Tops on NY 5 and US 20
Baldwinsville - former Rite Aid
Oneida - former Herb Phillipsons downtown on NY 46
Rome - former car dealer on NY 49 and 365
Watervliet  - former Price Chopper on NY 32
Menands - former Save-a-Lot on NY 32
Palatine Bridge - former Ames on NY 5
Poughkeepsie - former ShopRite on NY 55 and US 44
