Giant Food unveils store expansion, improvement plans

By Marianne Wilson - 12/05/2018
Giant Food is upgrading its store experience.

The supermarket retailer announced a $175 million capital investment into expansion and improvement over the next two years. The investment includes one new store and 24 remodels. These efforts are in addition to the recently announced $21 million investment into a new location in Olney, Md., set to to open in spring 2019.

“We look forward to updating and enhancing our existing stores and constructing both new and replacement locations to give our shoppers a fresh and imaginative selection, unique in-store experiences and superior customer service,” said Gordon Reid, president, Giant Food, Landover, Md., which operates 164 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.

The new store will be located in Fairfax Circle, Va. Giant opened two new stores in Virginia — in the towns of Herndon and Alexandria — earlier this month.

Giant’s upgrade efforts will include remodeling 24 store locations to feature new amenities such as enhanced perishable, produce, beer, wine and spirits offerings, full-service florists, expanded natural and organic departments, hot Asian food bars, fresh squeezed juice bars, enhanced check-out zones, full-service pharmacies and more.
