I am a regular Lidl shopper and tend to visit my local Basingstoke store after work at around 5pm. Upon arrival to the store, i always look at the selection on the bakery. I tend to always leave the store disappointed. On a typical evening whatever day of the week it is, there is always the bare minimum available. No cookies or doughnuts, no pastries, usually one or two battered french sticks left and nothing being freshly prepared. I feel that if the store is closing at 6pm everyday this is acceptable.
