Lidl is launching a huge sale at stores right across the UK this week and customers have the chance to get their hands on a range of discounted items at up to 50% off.
The popular supermarket retailer has announced that its ‘Big Sale’ event is returning this Thursday.
Lidl is set to be slashing the price of toys, TVs and much more just in time for the school summer holidays, and while the offers are likely to vary slightly from store to store, shoppers can expect a number of items from leading brands like Sharp and Kenwood to be included in the unmissable offer.
To make it a little easier to pinpoint where certain bargains will be located at, shoppers can use the online store finder to track down what deals their local store will have in stock.
Some of the top picks from this summer’s Big Sale event include a 55-Inch Ultra HD TV by Sharp, which is down from by a £100 to £299.99.
It comes with a two-year warranty and also allows users to connect to apps like Netflix and YouTube.
If you need a new vaccum, the Candy Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is also on sale for just £49.99 (was £79.99). The lightweight machine has a run time of 20 minutes, meaning it’s ideal for when your home needs a quick clean.
There’s also a Frozen-inspired play castle that’s down from £34.99 to £24.99, which is perfect for keeping little ones entertained when they’re indoors over the holidays, the Smoby 2-in-1 Frozen Dressing Table is on sale for only £9.99, and the Playtive Junior Ice Princess Doll’s House is down from £34.99 to £24.99.
Other sale items include drones and electric toothbrushes.
You’ll need to act fast though if you see something you like, as the deals will only be available for a limited time and as the famous saying goes – “when it’s gone, it’s gone”.
Lidl’s Big Sale event is hitting stores right across the UK on Thursday 13th August.
You can browse all of the Middle of Lidl deals via the Lidl website here.
If you are planning on heading to your local Lidl branch to grab a bargain or two this week, then it’s advised that you always check the opening times before making any trips and you can do so via the store locator here.
The COVID-19 pandemic may have taken its toll on industries of all shapes and sizes over these past few months, but supporting local/independent business has never been more important than it is right now.
You can also see the railway lines snaking through the city centre, cars nipping around the ring road, and the comparatively small apartment blocks around Castlefield.

Question Time audience stunned as first-time buyer says mortgage quote DOUBLED
Thursday night’s Question Time audience could be heard audibly gasping after a fellow crowd member revealed that her mortgage quote had doubled followed the recent mini-budget.
Taping in Manchester on 29 September, the current events and politics programme was discussing property when would-be first-time buyer Rabia revealed that her mortgage offer had jumped from an initial amount of 4.5% interest to a shocking 10.5% in just a matter of days.
As you can see in the incredible clip, both the audience and the panel are taken aback at the revelation.
The Greater Manchester resident said she is desperate to know what the government’s plan for mortgages is as following the latest revision, she says she simply cannot afford to put the money down on her first home.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer weighed in on the social media reaction, quote tweeting the clip from his party’s own account and stating that “the Tories must get back to Parliament and reverse their kamikaze budget” as the current economic mess is being “paid for by working people”.
To make matters worse, Rabia was given no clarification from her lenders, only that they were pulling her offers. Conservative MP and Minister for Local Government, Faith and Communities, Paul Scully had little information to offer her either, simply stating it is a short-term effect and that the market will stabilise.
Scully was subject to an entirely different reaction from the audience as well after his blind attempts to defend Prime Minister Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng were met with laughter. Conversely, Richard Bacon was met with applause after he labelled the mini-budget “absurd”.
As if the anti-Tory sentiment wasn’t already at a high, the chancellor’s mini-budget – which saw the corporations, bankers and the generally wealthy benefit ahead of the working class – has seen fresh calls for a general election to be held as soon as possible.
Beyond declaring a so-called £2,500 limit on energy bills (which many have warned isn’t a guaranteed cap), there was seemingly very little in the way of policy that
For those still unclear as to what was announced in the divisive mini-budget, here is a quick summary:
Speaking in a speech at the Labour conference in Liverpool on Tuesday, Starmer said that the government “haven’t just failed to fix the roof, they’ve ripped out the foundations, smashed the windows and now they’ve blown the doors off for good measure.
