Three new Giant supermarkets are heading to the City of Brotherly Love. In fact, the new venues will be based in Montgomery County and Bucks County. The expansion is part of a $70 million capital investment, which is slated to bring several new locations to Pennsylvania. In addition to traditional supermarket stores, the locations will also feature convenient gas stations for residents and tourists.
Giant Food — a popular grocery chain — was founded in Pennsylvania 95 years ago. The establishment announced Wednesday that it would be adding four new stores and five fueling stations across the state. They will also remodel their existing locations, including the West Chester supermarket on Downingtown Pike.
The new Giant store will replace the existing venue at 1055 Bustleton Pike later this summer. The new venue will be located at 176 W. Street Road in Feasterville- Trevose. Similarly, the expansion markets are not far from Philadelphia — making them the perfect stores for area residents and travelers alike.
There will also be a new location at 1661 Easton Road. This Giant Food store will replace the existing venue at 2395 York Road by the summer of 2019. Broomall will also get a new store on West Chester Pike and I-476 by the end of 2019. This venue will replace the current location at 2910 Springfield Road.
Giant Food will even add a self-serve gas station at their location in Horsham. The company is committed to increasing its presence in the Greater Stroudsburg and Walnutport area. Similarly, they remain committed to excellence in serving the families within these communities. Giant Food president Nicholas Bertram also stated that they want to position the company for long-term growth. This means adding new locations, along with remodeling and renovating existing ones to reflect the current trends and developments.
Giant Food’s expansion will usher in over 300 new jobs to the Philly suburbs. This is one of the main reasons the company is adding new stores across the state. In fact, they want to increase customer patronage by giving them the finest foods at the best prices. However, the grocery chain also wants to remain competitively viable — especially with the resurgence of smaller grocery stores and marts in the area.
