Shoppers queued round the building to get into the new Lidl supermarket in Wycombe at 7am this morning.

The new budget supermarket opened its doors on the London Road, at the old Homebase site, for the first time on October 15, after months of construction works.

Plans to turn the former DIY store into a Lidl were first mentioned in September 2018, so fans of the supermarket have had to wait more than two years to see them come to fruition.

There have been works going on at the site to make it ready, including new windows, a new turn lane from London Road and works to improve the car park.

The building was also given a lick of paint, taking it from Homebase's signature green colour to a cool grey.

After opening day, the new supermarket will be open between 8am and 10pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

Lidl is also planning to do its bit for those in need by donating any surplus food and customer donations to the Disraeli Coronavirus Community Support Group, who deliver to food banks and help feed those in need.
