Skopje, January 24 — The construction of the logistics and distribution center of the German international discount chain Lidl, which operates over 12,000 stores, began today in the Recica industrial zone in Kumanovo.
The investment amounts to 80 million euros and will create more than 150 jobs. The logistics center will be on an area of 63,000 square meters and include a complex with a main building, administrative offices and advanced infrastructure.
