Work on the new Lidl store in Mere Green appears to be gathering pace after slow progress since work got under way back in November. The store is expected to be completed some time this year.
The site has been pretty much cleared of rubble from the previous demolition while diggers and now preparing the groundwork for the building of the new store and the car park to go with it.
Work on the former industrial site in Mere Green Road, which lay derelict for years, is expected to finish by summer.
The new store will provide competition for Sainsbury’s across the road the M&S food store on Mulberry Walk. The Waitrose supermarket in Bellwell Lane closed down last year.
