Supermarket chain Lidl has confirmed the opening of its new Hornchurch store has been delayed by more than a month.

The new store, on the site of the former Towers building in Hornchurch High Street, was meant to open on Thursday (February 8), having already been delayed by more than a month and a half when an electricity cable was discovered under the site.

But a spokesman for Lidl has confirmed this week’s opening was postponed after it was revealed that BT services based at the entrance to the new store’s car park would need to be moved.

The new store will now open on Thursday, March 15, the spokesman confirmed.
