RUGBY star Rory Best officially opened Lidl's new concept Lurgan store in Pinehurst retail park.

The store, which was relocated from a previous site on Castle Street, has led to the the creation of 10 additional jobs, bringing the total number employed there to 30.

The new store boasts a new architectural design and spacious interior layout, meaning Lidl can offer customers a greater shopping experience with the same great value.

Lidl first opened its store in Lurgan in December 1999, its fifth in Northern Ireland at the time.

Since then the retailer - which works with more than 50 suppliers in the north - has expanded significantly with a total of 38 stores and now employs over 900 people in Northern Ireland.
