Budget supermarket chain Lidl wants to keep its Preston Road store in Lytham open for even longer, documents lodged with Fylde Council have revealed.

The firm has applied to extend its opening hours from 8am until 9pm from Monday to Saturday to 8am until 10pm.

Due to the continued and ever-growing popularity of the Lidl store, it is necessary to modestly extend the store’s opening hours in order to meet customer demand

It does not want to change its current Sunday hours, which would remain 10am until 5pm, paperwork showed.

“Due to the continued and ever-growing popularity of the Lidl store, it is necessary to modestly extend the store’s opening hours in order to meet customer demand,” Chris Smith from Plan A, which is working on behalf of the chain, said.

Permission to open until 9pm had only recently been granted, he added.
