The Strand Welcomes Lidl to Virginia Beach

35,000-SF grocery to anchor new retail center

The Strand, which means beach in German, will be the future home for German grocer Lidl, Hardees and Christian Brothers Automotive. Lidl will occupy 35,000 square feet and will serve as the anchor tenant in the new retail center under development by Beach Development Group.

The Strand is a 10.6-acre, mixed-use retail center to be located at the intersection of Holland Road and Warwick Drive near Lynnhaven Parkway. Founded in 1940 in Germany, Lidl has grown to be a successful chain of grocery stores, expanding throughout Europe, America and beyond. Currently it has 10,000 stores in 27 countries, and plans for the U.S. could be as many as 150 new stores, the first to open by 2018. The company has announced additional retail locations throughout the state, as well as its U.S. headquarters.
