I have been plenty of times to Lidl in Puerto del Carmen for my grocery shopping since my arrival in Puerto Calero. While the Lild Plus App did to work in Netherlands, France, Portugal and Spain mainland, it is fully functional here in the Canary Islands (CI) without creating a new account. It is either an improved version or simply a matter of functionality depending on the country you are in. I am not sure, yet.
Besides other local grocery shops, which I also explore now and then for some selective products, there are 31 Lidl markets across the Canary Islands. I have also seen some EuroSpar markets here on Lanzarote but my favourite remains Lidl with its regional-local selection of products. Obviously the Spanish chains like HiperDino, Mercadona, etc. are also omnipresent.
While Aldi’s expansion plans into the Canary Islands are on its way with 21 stores over the next few years, it will take a while to catch up on the already established brands.
Same as last year while still in Germany, I enjoy again daily opening an electronic door of the Lidl Advent calendar. 😉
Today it was 20% on fresh milk – leche fresca!
