Iain Ross, head of property at Lidl GB said: "We are thrilled to have opened our doors for the first time today and deliver our much-loved produce to the local area.

"The new store is a fantastic addition to the local community and it has been a great first day.

"We look forward to welcoming even more people through our doors over the coming weeks."

Other recent outlets to open at Merry Hill include German bratwurst fast-food brand Extrawurst, which was officially opened this week having opened to customers in December.
