Report: Lidl delays plan for 2nd grocery store in New Jersey

Construction of Lidl Stiftung & Co. KG's second store in New Jersey has been put on hold as the German discount grocer stalled work at several proposed sites, news website NJ.com reported Dec. 8, citing Lidl spokesman Will Harwood, Mantua Township officials and media reports.

Lidl told officials in Mantua, where construction work was due to start "soon," that it had put the project on hold due to "budgetary constraints," the township's economic development coordinator was quoted as saying by NJ.com.

The company opened its first New Jersey site in Vineland in November, according to the report. In June, Lidl outlined its plan to launch 100 stores in the U.S. in 12 months, with its eyes set on Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. The report said Lidl so far had opened 47 of those stores.

Citing reports from local news outlets, NJ.com noted that Lidl also had scrapped plans to open stores in Staunton, Va.; East Lampeter Township, Pa.; and Austintown Township, Ohio.
