The regional grocer unveiled an updated design at its new store in Olney, Md. With 40,270 sq. ft. of selling space, the supermarket features a new layout and décor designed to make navigating the space clear and simple.
The new Giant boasts a larger health and beauty department, enhanced hot food offerings, full gourmet cheese shop, expanded produce and natural food offerings, sushi bar, full-service meat, seafood, bakery, and floral departments, and both dairy as well as frozen kosher food sections.
Additional features include a full-service pharmacy, Starbucks Café, free WiFi, and a PNC Bank branch. The supermarket also offers self-checkout and self-scan options for shoppers.
"We have expanded our offerings across aisles and departments, creating a convenient, one-stop-shop for the community,” said Gordon Reid, president of Giant, which is based in Landover, Md., and operates 164 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.
Giant Food is investing $175 million capital in expansion and improvement of its store base during the next two years. The investment will cover 24 remodels across the chain’s market area. In addition to the Olney location, it includes a new store in Fairfax Circle, Va.
