Grocery Store Moving Into Former Kmart In Frederick


Lidl is expected to open next year.



Frederick, Md (KM) A new tenant will occupy the former Kmart on West Patrick Street. DLC Management, which owns the Frederick County Square shopping center, has announced that it’s signed a lease with Lidl, a grocery chain which operates more than 11,000 stores around the world.

The company will occupy a portion of 27,799 square feet of space  at the former Kmart, along with Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. Lidl is expected to open next year.

The grocery chain established its first US headquarters in Arlington County, Virginia in 2015, and operates more than 100 stores in nine east coast states.

Kmart closed earlier this year.

In a statement,  DLC Management cites   Food and Wine Magazine which says Lidl offers customers high quality fresh produce, meat, bakery items and a wide range of household products at the lowest possible prices.

The new Lidl will be located along the Golden Mile on property which is a short distance from Route 15. DLC Management  says it’s a desirable location with area traffic counts  averaging more than 47.000 vehicles.
