Grocery store Lidl will open its sixth New Jersey location in Bergenfield on Dec. 18.
The grand opening for the store, which will be open Mon. through Sun. from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., will take place at 7:40 a.m.
A study from the University of North Carolina found that prices at other grocery stores dropped by as much as 55 percent when Lidl moved into the same market.
“As a New Jersey native, I am excited to have the opportunity to provide a grocery store that offers high quality and low prices, and to bring something fresh and exciting to the neighborhood,” said Bergenfield Store Manager Roanne Esdaile in a statement. “The team and I look forward to getting to know the community in December.”
Recently, Lidl announced it would expand health care coverage to all workers beginning in January 2020, regardless of the number of hours works.
On Dec. 18, the first 100 customers to visit the Bergenfield store will receive a gift card between $5 and $100. Games, activities, and prizes will occur throughout grand opening weekend. The new store is located at 80 New Bridge Road.
