Lidl hit €1bn in Ireland

Endaba Group

Lidl MD, John Paul Scally, has claimed that Lidl’s sales in Ireland are “significantly more” than €1bn. However, the grocer has never made its revenues transparent, doesn’t file accounts and has declined to outline the chain’s profitability. Lidl has around 8.5% share of the Irish grocery market and Scally claims they passed the €1bn sales mark a while back. The store currently have 147 stores, and Scally predicts the grocer will open around 40 or 50 additional stores in Ireland over the next few years.
