Lidl plans to open a supermarke­t in Reistersto­wn on Aug. 31, the German grocer announced Tuesday.

The store will open in Reistersto­wn Shopping Center on Reistersto­wn Road, part of the chain’s rapid expansion in the Baltimore area.

The discount grocer opened its first Baltimore city location July 13 in the redevelope­d Northwood Commons shopping center near the campus of Morgan State University. Lidl also operates Baltimore County stores in Catonsvill­e and Nottingham.

The food retailer says it offers organic and gluten-free items, specialty foods such as cured meats, private label products, and fresh baked breads and pastries at prices as much as 45% less than other grocery chains.

The store will employ more than 45 people and offer starting pay of $15.50 an hour. The grocer establishe­d its U.S. headquarte­rs in Arlington, Virginia, in 2015 and now runs more than 150 stores on the East Coast.
