A new Lidl store has opened in Charlton today.
The Charlton branch is located at Millennium Retail Park in a former unit occupied by River Island.
There are frequent complaints of long queues leaving the adjacent car park. How it copes with additional traffic remains to be seen. Lidl will see far higher footfall compared to River Island.
Wilko will be moving into a nearby unit later this year and closing their Woolwich branch. That in turn will become a new leisure centre in years to come.
