The 54,500-square-foot site has been vacant since late 2017. Lidl, which has over 10,000 stores worldwide, tapped the United States market in the middle of 2017 and has since opened one location in Vineland.
“Bergenfield, Teaneck and the surrounding area offer a viable market and wide-customer base for a grocer like Lidl; this pluralistic community is an extraordinarily strong consumer demographic,” Nina Kampler, founder of Kampler Advisory Group said in a prepared statement. “Ownership is pleased with the outcome of the transaction; it was a pleasure to work closely with Florian and the RIPCO team to find a creative solution for this property in today’s often-challenged retail real estate landscape”.
The grocer has yet to announce when the Bergenfield location will open.
