Lidl (pronounced leedle) first entered the U.S. market in June when it announced its plans to open a total of 20 stores in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina by the end of this summer, and at least 100 stores across the East Coast by summer 2018. Though it's often compared to Aldi in the UK, Business Insider reports that Lidl's U.S. stores will more closely resemble Trader Joe's or Harris Teeter, and promise to sell high-end brands and locally-sourced foods for low prices.
