Stop by 9318 Monroe Road and you'll find the latest grocery store to arrive in the neighborhood. Lidl has added a new location in Sardis Woods. The chain has outposts in the Hampton Roads, New York and Raleigh-Durham metro areas.

Look for fresh produce, baked goods, meat, poultry and more at this grocery store. 

With three stars from three reviews on Yelp, the newcomer is off to a mixed start, but it's still early days. 

Yelper Murray M. wrote, "The store isn't the biggest, but it does offer a large selection of products. Most will be Lidl's own brands. There are some name brands, but just not many at this location."   

Kabab N More


Finally, Kabab N More is a Mediterranean and halal spot located at 3130 Driwood Court, Suite A.

Check out a wide variety of platters here including chicken and beef kebabs, hummus plates, lamb gyros and pita sandwiches. Add lentil soup, a chickpea salad or vegetable quinoa to your meal. Take a peek at the full menu here.

With five stars out of four reviews on Yelp, the fresh arrival is on its way to developing a local fan base.
