According to a report by idealista/news this new store has a total sales area of 1,300 m2, has a car park with around 110 spaces and also a charging system for electric vehicles.
“This store is the mirror of the continuous investment of our company in the country, with an increased concern for the community, which characterises us so much”, comments João Duarte, general director of Lidl for the South, adding that “for us, serving the population is more than providing an offer of quality products at the best price, but also being able to respond in the best way to the needs of local citizens.”
The new Lild store in the Algarve created 30 jobs and will also “benefit the surrounding area with the construction of the Urban Park of Quinta dos Arcos, providing an improvement in the quality of life of the community”. With this opening, Lidl now owns two stores in Silves and employs a total of 54 people in this Algarve municipality.
For the municipality, this is “another important investment in the municipality of Silves, involving job creation”, said Rosa Palma, mayor of Silves. “The municipality values the attraction of private investment that is beneficial for the development of the county”.
