Lidl shoppers could soon be snapping up bargains amid the heady aroma of freshly baked bread.

The German discounter is poised to begin rolling out in-store bakeries across all of its 580 UK stores after successful trials in Newcastle. A spokeswoman said the in-store bakery “had gone really well” but could not reveal exactly when the rollout would begin.

However, a store manager on Lidl’s new Facebook page said “all stores will have bakeries very soon” in response to a customer asking why Lidl stores in Ireland had the bakeries but UK stores didn’t.
