Bargain retail chain Lidl will be constructing new headquarters in Bratislava after the company decided to split up its Czech and Slovak operations. The company opted for the move because of the positive expansion experienced in Slovakia.
Once the process is complete, the operation in the Slovak Republic will be run independently and should generate about 100 jobs. Lidl entered the Czech market back in 2003, adding Slovakia to its territories just one year later. Both markets have been supervised to date by the company’s Prague office.
Lidl is now launching the construction of its four-floor headquarters, which will also house a retail outlet. It will then oversee the 110 Lidl shops throughout the country.
