business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that German discounter Lidl, which opened its first US stores this summer, now plans to open stores in Ohio. The first is slated to be opened in Broadview Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, in 2020, and the story says that Lidl “has also submitted applications in Howland, a township near Warren, and Austintown, south of Columbus. More applications in Ohio are planned.”

More applications in Ohio … and in a lot of other places, too.
