Lidl plans £70m distribution centre in Doncaster with 500 jobs

PLANS by the German budget supermarket Lidl for a major distribution centre in Doncaster are expected to create 500 jobs in the district.

Lidl has confirmed that it plans to open a new distribution centre at the iPort in Rossington, a £500 million logistics development.

The confirmation comes six months after the Yorkshire Post revealed that proposals for a Lidl base had been discussed.
