Giant is set to open a new store and fuel station in Salisbury Township, in Allentown, Pa.
The new location, which is set to be approximately 68,000 sq. ft., is a redevelopment of a vacated section within the South Mall Shopping Center. Upon completion, the company’s current store and fuel facility located at 3015 West Emmaus Ave. in Allentown will close.
“After 35 years at our current location on West Emmaus Ave., it’s time to grow our store footprint and move a little further up the road,” said John Ruane, president of Giant. “A larger and updated store will allow us to offer our Allentown area families the latest amenities while underscoring our commitment to providing our customers with great value, the best quality and friendly service they’ve come to expect from Giant.”
Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2025 subject to obtaining all of the necessary permits and approvals. Specific store amenities and employment opportunities, as well as opening dates, will be shared at a later date.
Currently, Giant operates seven stores and employs more than 1,400 team members in Lehigh County.
