What's the future of grocer Lidl in the Lehigh Valley?
German grocer Lidl expected to open up to 100 stores along the East Coast by next summer. To date, Lidl has opened 53 stores in six states. But the grocer has yet to open a store in the Lehigh Valley. Lidl, however, is constructing its first store here in Wilson, which could be its first Pa. location. The grocer originally expected to open stores in Bethlehem and Whitehall townships, too, but those have been scrapped.
