    Lidl 1/2 June 23rd May 19 at 7:38 AM
    E&W

    Only two food offers - but at least it is not cheese , and one is something totally new ( though 20p off seems a bit stingy ) .
    Always worth stocking up on cheap bacon

    This is disappointing for me, but I guess makes happy reading for fans of bacon.

    Also look out for their cheap imperfect veg boxes which they say they are now doing in all stores

    Crap again I’m afraid,I’ve seen the wonky veg boxes but they put them after the tills at one end of the shop,if you’re not on a till near that end you don’t know they are there and would still have to rejoin the queue even if you did.

    i bought my first wonky box today. Excellent value with large oranges, tomatoes, peppers, nectarines, apricots, radish,Jersey Royals and a packet of spinich. None of it looked on it's last legs, rather packets that had come open. The oranges alone would have cost £1.50 from the fruit counter.

    Don't go to Lidl
    I won't even go into Lidl now after their security guard accosted me and treated me publicly like a thief.
    He went on to snatch my bag off me and take it into the store. Even once he had established that I was not at fault, there was not even an apology for the outrageous behaviour.
    I complained to the duty manager, who told me this was Lidl's company policy!

    My local Lidl seem to have offers dotted around the store, e.g. fresh Gluten free bread at 20p and rocket 20p also plus other items in the chill section. The usual weekly stuff like veg and of course cheese and wine are always in the same place.
    Still my favourite supermarket for basic food.

    These will be short-dated items.... products are reduced to either 20p, 70p, 90p or £2 depending on their original price if they are going out of date ..most will have been previously reduced by 30% a day or so before then reduced further nearer the use-by date
    Best headline ever on local paper??

    I didn't think this week's offers were very good initially but ended up buying the bacon and foil. Both are excellent quality.

    The foil is thicker than normal.

    The bacon is very lean.

    Sent my husband this morning. I even sent him a picture of the bacon.
    He bought 3 packets of the wrong one! I'm sure he does this on purpose as he hates shopping.
    He did get 6 foils which is great quality.
