A budget supermarket chain has said it is "actively looking" into opening a store in a Suffolk market town.

Bosses at Lidl have expressed interest in opening a new store in Sudbury. 

Although they have not found a site for the new shop, the German retailer is keen to open in the town

A spokeswoman for Lidl said: "Our teams are actively looking for sites in Sudbury, but we don't have any firm plans in place currently". 

There has been some speculation the supermarket chain could open a new store in the car park at the former Delphi site in Newton Road. 

Mayor of Sudbury Jan Osbourne said she had heard of the rumours that the budget supermarket could open in Sudbury. 

Speaking about a potential opening, she said: "It's always good to have a new store."

Lidl first announced interest in opening a new store in the town back in April 2023 after bosses spoke about plans to create 13 new supermarkets across the county.
