EMJ’s Chattanooga team recently celebrated the grand opening of its fourth Lidl grocery construction project, located in Florence, S.C.
On May 24, the EMJ team, Lidl representatives, local officials, and eager residents attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony before the store opened its doors for the first time.
The international grocery retailer built and opened 47 stores last year, with lofty goals for additional stores in 2018 and beyond. EMJ Construction is currently building two additional stores in Georgia.
Lidl’s key selling points are its “easy-to-shop” layout, wine selection, freshly-baked goods, healthy, sustainable choices, and top-quality products. According to an announcement, about 90 percent of the grocery brands at Lidl will be exclusive to the chain.
“Our team has gotten into a groove with Lidl,” said Gary Gibson, Director of Construction. “They truly understand the client’s goals and have used lessons learned from prior projects to deliver a truly-customized product.”
Congratulations to the team:
