The long awaited opening of the Lidl store on Putney High Street looks likely to take place this month.

A number of local sources have suggested that the grand opening will take place on Thursday, 25 February. We asked the retailer's HQ to confirm this but they could only say that an announcement will be made in due course.

The store started construction work at the site last February just as the pandemic hit and were originally hoping to open last autumn.

The new store is at the former Halfords and Superdrug premises at number 66 will have a 574m² sales area and will also feature facilities including an in-store bakery and parking for cars.

The opening hours given on the Premises Licence document (number: 2019/303953) are for the store to be open seven days a week from 7am to 11pm. It is not known if these will be the operating hours of the store when it commences trading.

The new supermarket forms part of the company’s £1.45bn investment in its expansion across Great Britain in 2019 and 2020.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month . If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute .

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT . All payments are made through a secure web site.
