Fife singer KT Tunstall’s fruit and veg aisle gig marks opening of new Cowdenbeath Lidl

Fife’s own singer songwriter KT Tunstall has marked the official opening of supermarket chain Lidl’s 100th Scottish store with an impromptu gig in the fruit and veg aisle.

The award-winning performer has hit the road with Lidl for a week of music, food and fun north of the border, so it was only fitting that she was back in Fife to help celebrate the newest store at Cowdenbeath’s North End Park.

The new supermarket forms part of Lidl’s ongoing expansion and regeneration plans in Scotland and has created up to 40 new jobs for the community.

Last year, the retailer announced plans to open a further 12 new stores across the country by 2022, creating 500 new jobs.

Customers were invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8am on Saturday, with pop rocker KT doing the honours in front of a sizeable crowd interested in seeing what all the fuss was about.

Ross Millar, regional director, said: “We would like to thank all those who have played a part in our growth over the last 25 years.

“Having been part of Lidl’s journey in Scotland since our first store opened in 1994, it brings me great pride to announce the opening of our 100th store in Cowdenbeath.

“Since opening that first store, we have built a network of 60 Scottish suppliers, and as our estate grows across Scotland, we will continue to support local producers and proudly serve communities from Kirkwall to Stranraer.”

The store features facilities such as an in-store bakery, longer-style tills with dual packing, customer toilet, baby changing and ample parking for both cars and bicycles.

As part of the retailer’s commitment to the local community, the new store features a bespoke commissioned piece of artwork created by local artist, Kerry Wilson.

KT Tunstall will wrap up the Lidl tour with a final performance to thousands of fans as part of the Burns and Beyond Festival in Edinburgh on Saturday night.
