Giant Food expands in Virginia
Giant Food continues to roll out its new and improved store format.
The Landover, Md.-based supermarket operator is opening a store on August at Fairfax Circle, Fairfax, Va. The 53,000-sq.-ft. store was designed to address the way consumers are shopping by expanding popular departments, providing more amenities and offering an overall convenient experience.
Giant its new and improved store décor and layout format includes upgrades such as expanded prepared food, meat and seafood service counters, a larger natural and organic department and selection and a fresh cut fruit station and juice bar. The location will also be home to a full-service Starbucks with café seating, a beer/wine shop, a full-service floral shop, and a PNC bank.
The new Fairfax Circle location was constructed to be energy efficient with LED lighting throughout the store. Additional doors and refrigerators throughout deli, dairy and produce sections keep items fresh and cold while also conserving energy.
The new Fairfax location will support Giant's pick-up service. Shoppers can place their grocery orders through Giant's newly integrated e-commerce shopping experience on GiantFood.com or the Giant Food mobile app and in-store employees will hand-select, pack and deliver orders directly to shoppers' cars. Customers can also choose to use Giant Delivers and schedule the delivery right to their homes.

Shoppers at the new store also have access to Giant's team of licensed in-store nutritionists for free online and phone consultations as well as online nutrition classes and webinars.
