Lidl invests €110M in logistics centre
Lidl launched on Tuesday the symbolic ‘foundation stone’ of its new warehouse depot in Loures.
The depot represents an investment of €110 million euros and will create 200 jobs. The ceremony was witnessed by the Minister of the Economy, António Costa Silva.
The new logistics depot which is slated to open in the second quarter of 2024, will be the fifth in the country after Santo Tirso, Torres Novas, Palmela and Sintra which supplies 272 stores that the German supermarket company has in Portugal. The company employs 9,000 staff in Portugal.
The new depot will have the largest area of construction in terms of gross construction area, with 54,000 square metres.
“Today is a very happy day for Lidl, for the borough of Loures and for the metropolitan region of Lisbon”, said Milton Rego, Lidl’s manager for expansion and infrastructure.
