To our valued Lidl customers - COVID-19 Response

All of our 163 stores across Ireland are open.

We’ve understandably been experiencing very high demand in the last number of days, so we want to reassure you that we’re on it. We’re confident that we will maintain supply as normal and that all deliveries will go ahead as planned.

We’d also like to thank all of our suppliers and staff for their hard work at such a demanding time. We really appreciate the extra effort.

Keep up to date with the latest store information on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Your Safety is our number one priority

The safety of our team and customers is our number one priority, that is why we have introduced some of these measures in stores recently: 

  • Plexiglass screens at the till area
  • New signage showing how to social distance from fellow shoppers
  • Mobile hand sanitisers for customer use
  • Increased security presence

We are all in this together. Please show respect for our team and for other customers by maintaining the appropriate social distance in our stores.

Our Store Opening Hours are Changing

As millions of shoppers across Ireland have seen, our colleagues across Lidl have been working hard to keep the country fed. To help support them further, all stores will now close at 9pm.

This will allow our store teams more time to replenish stock, and importantly more time at home. Thanks for your patience and and support.

Priority shopping hours for elderly customers

From 9-11am, we are implementing priority shopping hours for the elderly across all 163 Lidl stores in Ireland. This will include prioritised queuing and additional assistance for our older customers.

We ask that the public respect this time period to allow more vulnerable customers to pick up the food and supplies they need.

Product quantity limitations

We've put product quantity limitations in place on a select few product lines to ensure availability for as many customers as possible, and we would ask that customers respect these measures.

Preventing the spread of COVID-19

In all stores over the coming days you will see a company in spraying all trolleys and baskets with a special bio-misting formula. This will work to remove, kill and create a barrier to prevent the spread of viruses such as COVID-19. They will spray a line of trolleys at a time, followed by batches of baskets, and all items are available to use again immediately after.

The system used is completely safe and there is no impact on the food you choose to put in your trolley or basket. Customer and staff safety is always at the forefront of our minds and we hope you can appreciate we are doing what we can!

How to help make a difference
