Governor Terry McAuliffe announced today that Lidl, one of the fastest growing retailers in Europe, will invest $202 million to establish operations in Virginia. The investment will include $77 million for its U.S. corporate headquarters in Arlington County, creating 500 new jobs, as well as $125 million in a regional headquarters and distribution center facility in Spotsylvania County, creating an additional 200 jobs. The Governor made the announcement after meeting with leaders of the company at Lidl’s international headquarters in Neckarsulm, Germany.
