Shop­pers queued up last week to be first through the doors of the new Lidl store in Seamer Road. The store on the for­mer McCain Sta­dium site was opened at 8am on Thurs­day by the Mayor of Scar­bor­ough Cllr Si­mon Green.

David Sut­ton and An­drew Bur­nett were the first to get into the store.

Mr Sut­ton said: “It’s my daugh­ter’s birth­day to­day so I wanted to get a birth­day cake. To be hon­est, I thought it opened at 7am so that’s why I was first here.”

Mr Bur­nett added: “I want to get one of the deals for a mi­crowave oven.

“I think it will be good for peo­ple liv­ing in the area to have the store open fi­nally.”

Lidl is of­fer­ing cus­tomers the chance to sam­ple some of its award-win­ning prod­ucts through­out the day.

For the first week of trad­ing cus­tomers were able to en­joy 30% off se­lected fruit, veg­eta­bles, meat, poul­try and white goods.

Store manager An­drew Pattinson said: “It’s been a bit of a race to the fin­ish line but it looks great and we’re happy peo­ple can now come in and en­joy the store.”
