We are now just days away from the new Lidl supermarket in Egg Harbor Township opening its doors.

Officials say South Jersey's newest supermarket will open on Wednesday morning, April 14th.

According to a post on their website, the ribbon cutting ceremony will begin just before 8AM. The first 100 customers will be presented with a special gift card ranging from $5 to $100. You will also be able to enter for a chance to win a $500 gift card.

The building, which housed Genaurdi's from 2001 to 2012 and then JR's Fresh Market from 2015 to 2018, went through a complete overhaul over the past few months.

The new store in EHT is just one of fifty that the chain will be opening this year across the Mid-Atlantic region as the battle for food dollars continues to intensify.

Other Lidi stores opening this year in the Garden State include locations in Glassboro, Brick, Gloucester Township, and others across the northern part of the state.

If you are unfamiliar with shopping at Lidl, I covered the grand opening of their Vineland store back in 2017 and I described it this way:

...it's roughly positioned between Aldi, which is very bare bones, and ShopRite or Acme, which has all of the bells and whistles one expects from a full service supermarket chain. Much like ShopRite and Acme, and unlike Aldi, Lidl has a really nice fresh bakery department, which was mobbed. Lidl seemed to have a slightly larger selection of national brand names (including their own line of products), compared to Aldi which usually focuses on their own lines. If you're expecting a dozen different brands of the same type of product, Lidl isn't for you.
