Checkout lane: Another grocery store chain has put League City on its shopping list and this one’s new to the Texas market. Germany-based Lidl last week submitted plans to the city for a 35,000-square-foot grocery store at state Highway 96 and Tuscan Lakes Boulevard.
Lidl — pronounced leedle — operates about 10,000 stores in 27 countries throughout Europe and bills itself as a low-cost grocer. Business Insider called Lidl a cross between a Wal-Mart and Trader Joe’s. The chain offers deep discounts on groceries, household appliances, clothes and more.
