Giant Food Stores has entered into an agreement with C&S Wholesale Grocers to acquire the Nell’s Shurfine Market at 951 Walnut Bottom Road in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The acquisition, expected to be completed by the beginning of March, will mark the second Giant location in Carlisle.

The 51,800-s.f. store plans to close temporarily Feb. 28 for conversion and reopen as a Giant Food Store in late March. The pharmacy will remain open during the conversion. Nell’s associates will have the opportunity to apply for positions at the new Giant.

“Giant has been proud to call the Carlisle community home for more than 90 years,” said Tom Lenkevich, president. “We are always looking for ways to grow our business and provide convenient locations to help our customers save money, save time and eat well.”

While plans are still being finalized, the converted store will feature Giant’s newest marketplace-style produce section, the latest bakery department and offering, updated and expanded prepared foods and deli department, as well as an expanded natural and organic department.

Founded in 1923, Giant Food Stores began as a meat market in downtown Carlisle and today has grown to 196 stores in four states.
