German retail giant Lidl arrived in Wymondham on Thursday, June 28 on Farrier Close, just off of the A11.

The new store has created up to 40 full and part time jobs, includes toilets and a baby-changing facility, and has been received on social media with enthusiasm.

Iain Trice, from Wymondham, said on Facebook: 'Just been to the opening of the new Lidl store in Wymondham. Lots of free goodies like chocolates flowers and free bags for life.'

Colin Rimmer, Lidl UK's regional head of property, said: 'We would like to thank all those who have played a part in bringing this new Lidl store to Wymondham.
