Lidl Plans Regional Headquarters-Distribution Hub In Cartersville, Georgia

Germany-based Lidl, one of the world’s largest retailers, will invest $100 million over the next five years to locate its new regional headquarters and distribution center in Cartersville, Georgia. The company plans to create 250 jobs.

“We thank Governor Nathan Deal and leaders in Bartow County for their support of our operations in Georgia,” said Brendan Proctor, President & CEO of Lidl US. “We are excited to be part of the community in Cartersville, which has a vibrant workforce and offers a central location for our distribution network. This facility will be an important part of Lidl’s efficient infrastructure that will allow us to deliver outstanding quality goods to our customers at the lowest possible prices,” he added.

Lidl operates more than 10,000 stores in 28 countries, offering customers the highest quality fresh produce, meat, bakery items and a wide array of household products.

The company opened its first 10 stores in the U.S. on June 15. By next summer, Lidl plans to open up to 100 stores along the East Coast and create 5,000 total jobs. The Cartersville facility will be the company’s fourth regional headquarters and distribution center. The other centers are in Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland.

“Lidl’s commitment to locate in Georgia speaks to our business-friendly climate and robust workforce,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “Georgia is a gateway to the Southeastern market and beyond, providing innovative retail leaders such as Lidl the logistics infrastructure needed to support a growing customer base. We value Lidl’s investment and share in the company’s vision for future growth.”

“We are excited that Lidl has chosen Georgia to expand their U.S. operations,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “This forward-thinking company is an excellent addition to Georgia’s booming business infrastructure. Lidl will have access to our strong logistics network and skilled workforce that will help them stay ahead of the global competition and meet the needs of their customers.”
