You can now buy your Express & Star at all local Lidl outlets

Express & Star readers can now pick up Britain’s number one local newspaper in Lidl stores across the region.


The Express & Star and sister title the Shropshire Star is on sale in 21 branches of Lidl.

The move is part of a new relationship between publisher Midland News Association and the supermarket group, which is one of the fastest growing retailers in its sector.

An MNA spokesman said: “The Express & Star and Shropshire Star are two leading local brands, so it is great that customers of another popular business can buy our titles in-store.”
