The regional distribution centre at J11A of the M1 near Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, will be more than double the size of any other Lidl UK warehouse and will create up to 1,000 new jobs.
The one million square foot warehouse on the 58-acre (23-hectare) site will be its 16th in Britain.
Lidl UK said it was part of its plan to invest £1.45bn in Britain in 2017-18.
