Waitrose sell Bromley store to Lidl
Waitrose have tonight announced the closure of seven stores and loss of 700 jobs. According to The Guardian, one of the stores is Bromley which they are selling to Lidl.
Initially I thought of the branch located beside Bromley South station. That seemed odd given Lidl have only just opened a new store on Bromley High Street. The Waitrose is also far larger than every Lidl store.
I’ve since found the Press Release which confirms it is the Burnt Ash Lane branch south of Grove Park.
Waitrose have recently been struggling and closed five stores last year. Lidl has seen huge sales growth.
