I see where a Lidl is opening next week in WS. Last year there was talk of one being built in GSO near the Harris Teeter in Adams Farm. Does anyone have an update?

I haven't heard anything about that since the rumors that floated around early last year. That doesn't mean anything, though, as Lidl has several other sites under construction in the area that they haven't announced. I am pretty sure it's a Lidl that's coming up at Silas Creek and Fairlawn, but the company apparently won't comment on it. There's hiring underway for stores across NC, but the company is apparently consistent in their policy of not commenting until the store is staffed and set to open.

According to the TBJ, there are 8 Lidl's under construction in the Triad, though the specific locations aren't named. http://www.bizjournals.com/triad/new...ton-salem.html And the News and Record says there'll be stores in W-S, Greensboro, Burlington, Rockingham, and Eden, at least.

By the look of both stores in Lexington and Thomasville, I think the Thomasville store will open first (I don't know what phase the Winston-Salem store is in.
Personally far as location, I think while the Tville and Lexington store are in prime locations getting in and out of them both will be challenging as the traffic is already heavy. The Lexington store the road splits into two roads at it location and basically will be right only leaving and turning left in either store will be cross your finger and hit the gas moments.
While I might change my opinion later but for now the parking spaces look tight as I feel they designed without the thought about America SUV and trucks.
I saw fir the first time a Lidl commercial.
It wasn't this one

I have noticed Aldi, Food Lion and Walmart has given a facelift. Even the Walmart has added a conveyor belt to the self-check out for the large buys.

Im definitely will check Lidl as I know what my weekly grocery bill is and I generally shop for the same essentials

The first Winston store is open. The second is coming along, but is still under construction.

I can't see the population in the area being sufficient to support all of the choices - Food Lion, Publix, Walmart, Aldi, Lidl, Harris Teeter, Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc., along with online competition, mainly from Amazon. But I'll enjoy the prices that all this competition brings, for as long as all of the stores manage to stay open.

Some'll probably die off, sure. I can't speak for everyone, but we regularly shop at several of the stores you name, and our go-to is one you didn't! (Lowes Foods.) So it's not an either-or, brand loyalty thing for us. We spread our dollars around to an extent.

I meant to mention Lowe's too...I've wondered if they'll hang on. I know they've remodeled a number of their stores, though I hardly ever go to Lowe's Foods. Mainly because they're not on my way home. With so many choices, I don't go out of my way for groceries.

It depends where they locate and their popularity. As you see Teeter and WF don't seem to get in each other's way at Friendly. Lowes tends to be where the competition isn't so saturated. FL seems to be more concentrated in the southern/eastern parts of the city whereas HT is central/north/west. Aldi has a small footprint and if TJs and Publix ever build here I opine their footprints will be smaller as well.
But, yes, lets hope the competition benefits us.
