Lidl Opening Times: Rathbeale Road Swords
Mon-Sat 08:00 - 22:00,
Sun 09:30 - 19:00
For those already not familar with shopping in a Lidl store, well you'll be a bit surprised as it's not
quiet like a standard supermarket we are used to in Ireland. The first think you'll notice is that most food is pre-packed
including the meat. There is no butchers counter at Lidl. There is no tobacco sold. There are no newspapers or sweet shop.
The shopping isles have a mixture of food on one side and general hardware on the other site, so for example you may
see bread on the same isle as a power drill or petrol generators. You will not hear any backround piped music being played.The
whole emphasis is on choice, giving the customer what they want at a price that suits their pocket. You will find branded
goods alongside own brand goods. There are no shopping baskets at Lidl, only trollies. Comment - The
car park at the Swords store is way too small for the amount of customers using the shop.
Opening Date Thursday 17 May - Times 8am-9pm Mon. to Sat - 8am to 7pm Sundays
Lidl is to open one of it's shops in Swords. The site of the new store is Esso filling station on the Rathbeale Road
close to J.Cs supermarket.. Planning permission has been granted to Lidi with certain conditions attached such as opening
hours, unloading of deliveries. Objections to Lidl came from the residents of nearby housing estates whose main objection
were the loss of the filling station and the increase of traffic in the area when the store opens. Another objection came
from J.C Savage's supermarket. The local Socialist party councillor Clare Daly has said the decision to grant Lidl planning
permission will not be tolerated and plans are afoot to lodge an objection on behalf of the residents with An Board Pleanala.
Update March 2011
- Rumor has it that Lidl may open a branch in Rivervalley.
The Centra shop in the Valley is big enough with ample car parking spaces. Sources say that talks have taken place with the
Other Lidl Shops In The Area.
