Croydon's Lidl branches could stay open late for the Olympics
BARGAIN supermarket chain Lidl is planning to keep its doors open later this summer.
The chain has applied to Croydon Council for permission to trade for longer hours between July 5 and September 9 to cater for the Olympics.
Three of the town stores – in New Addington; Parkway; and Hermitage Lane in Norbury – have all asked for longer opening hours to take advantage of the chance to sell to sports fans.
A store spokeswoman confirmed that the chain has put in applications for its stores in Parkway and Norbury and is planning on placing one for its New Addington-based store in the very near future.

She said: "We will endeavour to open Lidl stores which are situated in an area of Olympic activity between the hours of 10am and 8pm from mid July until the end of August. We aim to include the selling of alcohol.
"Due to the increased number of people visiting and residing in these areas during the Olympics we anticipate that our stores will become busier as a result.
"By extending our opening hours this will offer our current customers more time to do their shopping as well as more flexibility when it comes to choosing when they visit our stores.
"These hours will also ensure the best possible access to our stores for those travelling to and from the Olympic venues."
