business news in context, analysis with attitude

Value retailer Lidl announced that it is expanding its home delivery option in Northern Virginia, making it available to more than 360,000 households in communities surrounding its Ashburn, Fredericksburg, Manassas, and Woodbridge, Virginia, stores.

Powered by Shipt, the deliveries can be made in as little as an hour; new Shipt members who sign up will receive an annual membership for $49 (normally $99).
KC's View:
One doesn’t ordinarily think of a value operator as offering delivery. But maybe that’s changing … and it’ll be interesting to see how/if this affects the value proposition at places like Dollar General and Aldi.
