At 50,700 sq. ft., the new North Broad Street Giant at the corner of Spring Garden Street will operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. The store employs approximately 150 full- and part-time team members.
Customers will find variety within Giant's signature fresh departments, such as farm fresh garden produce, fresh meat and seafood, and bakery. Other convenient offerings include Starbucks, sushi made in-store, a hot foods section with smoked meats and a Beer and Wine Eatery with slushie options. Customers also will be able to take advantage of an underground parking garage while shopping at the store.
At 49,800 sq. ft., the new Richboro store will operate from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week and employ 170 full- and part-time team members.
Richboro customers will find Giant's signature fresh departments, including farm fresh garden produce, fresh meat and seafood, and bakery, along with the addition of a new Beer and Wine Eatery offering slushie options, a specialty cheese section and an artisan bread case with self-serve loaf slicing. For today’s busy families, the Richboro store features a hot foods bar with smoked meats and sushi made in-store.
Both stores will offer Giant Direct. Designed to serve customers when and how they want to shop, Giant Direct gives busy families the opportunity to order groceries online for easy pickup or delivery, the company said.
These two new stores add to The Giant Co.'s significant growth in the greater Philadelphia area over the past year. In 2021, it opened four new stores in the city, including its urban flagship store Giant at Riverwalk and Giant stores on Cottman Avenue, South Christopher Columbus Boulevard and in Doylestown, as well as a Giant Heirloom Market in the Fashion District. To meet the growing demand for online grocery shopping across the city and in southern New Jersey, the company also opened a state-of-the-art Giant Direct E-Commerce Fulfillment Center on Island Avenue in Philadelphia.
