Lidl (it rhymes with “needle”) just opened a new supermarket on Briarcliff Road in Brookhaven last month, and has plans to open another in south DeKalb.

The Dunwoody store will be its 10th market in Georgia. The store will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. At the grand opening on Aug. 26, the first 100 customers will get a gift card ranging from $5 to $100 each.

Lidl is known for offering a wide range of groceries and produce at discounted prices. The Dunwoody store will include a bakery, a floral section, European specialty items and produce.
