Giant Food expanding in home state

Giant Food Stores is making a $70 million capital investment over the next two years in Pennsylvania.

Giant Food Stores said it will construct six new stores, remodel two locations, and open five new fuel stations in the Keystone State. As part of its growth strategy, the company plans to enter the East Stroudsburg and Walnutport communities for the first time.

"This year Giant is celebrating our founding in Pennsylvania 95 years ago, so we're especially proud to make these new investments in our home state,” said Nicholas Bertram, president, Giant, which has more than 170 neighborhood stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.

The East Stroudsburg store and the Walnutport store are both anticipated to open in 2019. Both locations will include new fuel stations. The other new stores will be located in Feasterville-Trevose, opening summer 2018; State College opening late 2018/early 2019; Warrington, opening early 2019; and Broomall, opening late 2019.

In addition to the construction of new stores, three new fuel stations will be built to serve customers in the existing Pennsylvania locations of Lititz, Horsham, and Bethlehem.

The latest investment announcement follows the February completion of a new Peapod wareroom opened in partnership with Giant in North Coventry, Pennsylvania. The wareroom opening was in response to fast-growing delivery and pickup demand, and it will enable Peapod and Giant to serve up to 25% more shoppers in the greater Philadelphia area.
