Regional grocery chain Giant Food recently launched a store development initiative. The $175 million capital investment will feature store expansion and improvement over the next two years.
The investment will include one new store and 24 store remodels. These efforts are in addition to a recent $21 million investment into a new Giant store in Olney, MD, set to open in spring 2019. The brand-new store will be located in Fairfax Circle, VA. Giant opened two new stores in Herndon, VA and Alexandria, VA earlier this year, which allowed additional space for updated amenities and product selection.
In addition, Giant will also be 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.
“This announcement is part of our long-term commitment to deliver a consistently exceptional experience for our shoppers,” said Gordon Reid, president, Giant Food. “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.”
