Popular German grocer Lidl is again considering opening its first location in Bucks County, writes Dino Ciliberti for the Patch.

The discount supermarket retailer previously considered opening a 29,136-square-foot grocery store in Warminster, in the old Pathmark property on York Road where a Tesla store is expected to open soon.

Lidl also intended to develop a store in Bristol Township on a subdivided lot purchased from Verizon, but the company has not yet made its plans clear.

Now, Lidl is weighing another option to build a store in Warminster, at a parcel located at the corner of Street and Norristown roads, according to Township Engineer Craig Kennard.

“Lidl has been a part of what I believe is a sketch plan submittal,” said Township Manager Tom Scott.

The owner of the property that is being considered for development is Christ Home, said Kennard, and a significant part of that land cannot be developed.

“I say it’s 50-50 if they will develop that corner,” he added.

Lidl has over 12,000 stores in 32 countries, including in nearby Lansdale, Philadelphia, and Easton.
