Lidl is opening a new Commack store this month
Discount grocery chain Lidl will open its new store in Commack at the end of the month.
Lidl will hold a grand opening celebration at the 30,000 square foot Mayfair Mall supermarket at 210 East Jericho Turnpike on Wednesday August 31.
Lidl has invested more than $7 million to transform the Commack site formerly occupied by Stein Mart, which closed in 2020 as part of the clothing retailer’s bankruptcy. The new store will employ more than 50 people, according to a company statement.
The first 100 customers in line before the ribbon cutting at 7:40 a.m. on August 31 will receive gift cards ranging from $5 to $100 each. Shoppers can also enter to win a $500 Lidl gift card, sample Lidl’s award-winning assortment and enjoy special giveaways.
Additionally, from Wednesday, August 31 through Sunday, September 4, Lidl will donate $1 to Long Island Cares for every new myLidl member who signs up and sets Lidl Commack as their home store.
“On behalf of the City of Smithtown, I am thrilled to officially welcome our newest neighbor, Lidl, to Commack on Jericho Turnpike,” Smithtown City Supervisor Ed Wehrheim said in the statement. “Throughout the pandemic, Lidl has opened more than 15 stores on Long Island to serve residents, offering quality, affordable food at low, competitive prices. This latest store is a much needed and promising addition to the community, and I am grateful that Lidl has chosen Smithtown as its home.
