German grocer Lidl to open first Tarrant County store in Colleyville

Friday, September 22 2017 10:13 AM

German grocer Lidl is bringing one of its first stores in Texas and its first location in Tarrant County to Colleyville.

City Council approved a rezoning request for the store at Colleyville’s southern gateway on State Highway 26 at its Sept. 19 meeting. This location came to fruition through collaboration between the City and Lidl.

By working together, Lidl proposed a store that meets many of the city’s requirements and makes quite an entrance to Colleyville at 4007 Colleyville Blvd. The changes include rotating the store to face SH26, adding expanded landscaped islands in the parking lot, saving and planting numerous trees, and moving the dumpster and loading dock to the back of the property.

“This is a great example of the process where the applicant was able to resolve the issues that were identified by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council,” Mayor Richard Newton said. “To me it’s very significant to get the store turned so that the façade faces State Highway 26.”

Lidl, the fourth largest retailer in the world, carries fresh produce and groceries and it also sells a rotating inventory of products from home essentials, kitchen gadgets, apparel, toys, and more. The company recently announced an exclusive clothing line with international supermodel Heidi Klum. Lidl representatives told the City Council it plans to open summer 2019.

City staff estimates the total tax benefit to Colleyville to be $1.5 million in property taxes to the Tax Increment Financing Fund and $75,000 annually in sales tax collections. The store, located in Colleyville’s southern gateway, will serve as a catalyst to that area for future redevelopment. The City is in the process of enhancing its entryways, including near Lidl’s site at SH26 and Cheek-Sparger Road.
