Giant Food Stores expands reach with 6 store openings

04/05/2019
Giant Food Stores has a lot to celebrate.

The Carlisle, Pa.-based company is opening six new stores in four states, which brings its total count of stores to 178.

Five of the brand-new locations are former Shop ‘n Save locations the retailer acquired previously, which are branded Martin’s Food Markets in the communities of Smithsburg, Md., Greencastle, Pa., Berryville, Va., Hedgesville, W. Va., and Martinsburg, W. Va.

In addition, the retailer constructed a brand-new store in Warrington, Pa., to replace a store previously located in Jamison, Pa., the company said.

“These multiple store openings align with our aggressive long-term growth strategy - entering new markets where it makes sense and expanding our offerings for our current customers,” Nicholas Bertram, the president of Giant Food Stores, said. “Along with the recent introduction of our GIANT Heirloom Market in Philadelphia and our Giant Direct e-commerce hub in Lancaster, our team has demonstrated a relentless focus on innovation that allows customers to connect with our brand whenever and however they want.”

Giant also extended its commitment to each community through its Living Here, Giving Here platform, by donating $25,000 to local food pantries, schools, police and other emergency responders. The company also is to ensure each store is assigned a feeding agency partner to receive weekly food donations through the company's food rescue program, including its acclaimed “Meat the Needs” initiative, the company said.
