A Sandiacre supermarket is to undergo a major multi-million pound revamp.

Lidl, on Station Road, is set to get a makeover after planning permission was granted by Erewash Borough Council.

The multi-million pound investment will see Lidl replace the existing building on the site with a larger, more sustainable store.

The ‘Lidl of the Future’ supermarket will boast state-of-the-art facilities including glass-fronted design, wide aisles, long tills and 113 parking spaces.

The new store, which is set to open in early 2017, is aimed at reducing CO2 emissions by over 20 per cent.

Lidl UK’s Regional Head of Property, Nick Harvey, said: “We could not be more delighted to have received planning permission, and look forward to getting started on construction.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the local community for their continued support.

“We very much look forward to opening our doors and offering our fresh, quality, great value products in the not too distant future.”

Lidl was crowned Grocer of the Year at the 2015 Grocer Gold Awards.
