AN EXHIBITION of a discount supermarket’s plans attracted hundreds of people.

Lidl’s plans for Castle Trading Estate were on show in Portchester on Thursday and saw 1,055 residents sign a petition in favour of the store.

Jason Gratton, Lidl’s property director, said only two objection forms were received.

He also stressed that food offered at the open day was ‘to showcase the quality of the Lidl products as many residents do not currently have access to a discount foodstore.’
