European grocer gears up for U.S. expansion


German discount supermarket chain Lidl has revealed where it will drop its anchor in the United States.

The retailer revealed on its website that it is seeking locations between New Jersey and Georgia. It said it is looking to build stand-alone, 36,000-sq.-ft. stores on sites that are at least 3.5 acres with a minimum of 150 parking spaces.

Lidl operates some 10,000 stores across Europe. In June, the company announced that it was establishing a U.S. headquarters and distribution center in Arlington, Virginia.
