Lidl opens its doors in Kaunas FEZ
The retail chain Lidl continues its rapid development in the Kaunas region. On 23 September, Lidl opened its doors at Raudondvario pl., Ežero g. 3, and a week later, on 30 September, a new Lidl store will be opened in the Kaunas Free Economic Zone (FEZ).
Continuing its expansion, Lidl will open another store in the Kaunas FEZ on 30 September. The new store’s working hours will be 8:00–22:00. Lidl will be the first store operating in the Kaunas FEZ, and it will complement the internal service network for employees working here as well as also being a convenient place to shop for residents of Ramučiai or surrounding settlements and for those traveling in the direction of Jonava.
Vytautas Petružis, CEO of the Kaunas FEZ, was pleased that the expansion of Lidl will bring additional added value to all employees of the Kaunas FEZ territory.
“Lidl’s investment in the Kaunas FEZ is important for the whole territory’s community ecosystem. This is yet another German capital project and, at the same time, the expansion of the supply of services in the internal area. As the Kaunas FEZ community grows rapidly and non-stop, the implementation of the Lidl project here creates additional added value for all existing and future employees of the territory,” said Mr Petružis.
The staff of the new store in Ramučiai will consist of about 30 employees. Lidl, which pays one of the highest average salaries in the retail market, has an average salary of all employees (according to Rekvizitai.lt as of July 2021) amounting to €1,630.92 before tax. The area of the new store’s shopping hall will be about 1,300 m2. The whole store will have 11 cash registers – five of them will be of the standard kind and six self-service cash registers will also be installed for the convenience of buyers.
The opening of the new store in the Kaunas FEZ will take place on 30 September at 8:00.
