Susan Statham, 54, told Lincolnshire Reporter: “I can’t wait!”

“I do love the Lidl bakery and me and my family go there quite a lot.

“The bread is fantastic and the meat is lovely.”

“We wanted a bigger Lidl as we have a Morrisons, but it’s only a small one and the Tesco sells a lot of their finest products, but there’s a lot of people on a low income in Gainsborough so it doesn’t really work.”

Shannon Maunders, 22, said: “I will be doing my Christmas shopping there.

“The building looks quite big and hopefully it’ll be really good.”
