Setbacks in the construction of a purpose-built Lidl supermarket have pushed its opening back a fortnight.

A spokesman for the store confirmed the opening date was due to be March 19 but has been postponed until April 2.

The brand new Lidl is being built in Union Street with access created in Watergate, following the demolition of the previous building on the same site.

With the building of the store is the creation of 15 additional jobs.

The spokesman said: “We are extremely proud to be investing back into the community by rebuilding the Lidl store in Grantham, and we look forward to welcome our new and existing customers back on opening day. We would like to take the opportunity to thank residents and locals for their support and patience throughout the duration of the works.”
