The Germans are invading Perryville.
German grocery chain Lidl is moving along with the large distribution center at 81 Belvidere Road, Perryville.
That distribution center, for German grocery chain Lidl, will be located along Principio Parkway. If all goes as planned, Lidl is also building a store on Route 40 in Elkton.
The distribution facility is 754,195 square feet. It has rooms designed for preserving a variety of food. There will be a minus 10 degrees room, a 35 degree room, a 39 degree room, and an area just for storing chocolate. There is also a giant dry goods area and a room for a palletizer machine.
The Lidl store concept plan, to be built in the area of the old Rose's Diner, at 622 East Pulaski Highway, Elkton, will bring a 36,170 square foot grocery store to the area. That store is still in the works and is under review by State Highway Administration.
