Lidl Ireland is to host its first ever singles’ shopping night, #LoveAtLidl on Sunday February 12th in the newly reopened flagship store here in Tallaght.
If Sunday is your night for shopping you could be in luck as Lidl want to play cupid and help you meet a potential match for Valentine’s Day.
The invite only singles shopping night will run from 7pm until 8.30pm and the lucky attendees will be offered a €20 voucher to do their shopping and wear a discrete badge to let other participants know who they are looking to interact with on the night.
Round up your single friends and email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the Lidl Ireland Facebook page.
Entrants will be asked to answer 3 simple questions and a selection will be chosen to attend the event.
Those lucky enough to hit it off can go on an instant ‘mini date’ in the designated love zone, with romantic treats such as chocolate, prosecco and other nibbles.
Supermarkets may be an unsuspecting venue for couples to meet but shopping in Lidl has successfully matched couples over the years, including Catherine Collins and Michael O’Mahoney who met in Lidl Skibbereen five years ago.
‘It was love at first sight’, said Catherine, who met now fiancé Michael while doing her weekly shop. ‘We did our shopping on the same day, and I spied Catherine through a gap in the shelves. I chatted with her one day…and the rest is history’, explains Michael, who proposed one year later. ‘I said yes! You can definitely find love at Lidl!’
