Lidl operates about 10,000 stores in 27 countries throughout Europe and recently has begun entering U.S. markets. The grocer plans a League City store.

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.

I would prefer that a Trader Joe's would open in League City! That would truly be a popular destination shop!!!
