Giant Food Stores is the official grocer of the Philadelphia Phillies for the 2019 season and is celebrating with store promotions.

“Like all baseball fans, Giant has been waiting for opening day since the end of last season. It’s finally here and to mark the occasion, we’re offering our customers many ways to celebrate their beloved Phillies, show their team spirit and save at Giant, all season long,” stated Matt Simon, VP of marketing, Giant Food Stores. “We’re excited to be growing our Giant Heirloom Market brand in the city of Philadelphia this year and look forward to a great second season as the official grocer of the Philadelphia Phillies.”

The following are ways the company will celebrate its sponsorship:

  • Nature’s Promise products from the company’s private-label line will be located at concession stands throughout the ballpark, marking the first time the line is available outside the walls of Giant Food Stores.
  • Starting on March 31, for every Sunday home game, customers who wear Phillies gear while grocery shopping will receive a 5 percent discount on qualifying purchases that total $20 or more.
  • During Sunday home games, whenever the Phillies score a home run in the seventh inning, customers can text a code for an exclusive limited-time offer.
  • Officially licensed MLB Phillies merchandise will be available at Giant stores. The assortment will vary by store and will include shirts, hats, water bottles, travel tumblers, lanyards and more.

Giant will be offering even more ways for customers to save throughout the season. From March 29 through April 11, shoppers who spend $20 on participating products will receive a voucher for a free Phillies ticket.

Giant also returns as the sponsor of the Phanatic MVP Club. Fans 14 and under are invited to join the legions of young fans who enjoy access to great prizes, exclusive events, ticket discounts and other benefits as members of the Phanatic MVP Club, including a discount coupon for a custom cake at Giant in their birthday card from the Phanatic.

As the sponsor of Pride Night at the ballpark on June 26, Giant will join the Phillies in inviting fans to celebrate Philadelphia’s rich LGBTQ culture.

On April 2, Giant and the Phillies will donate 250 hams to the organizations’ mutual community partner, Philabundance, the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief agency. Store associates and Phillies alum Mickey Morandini will help deliver the hams in advance of the Easter holiday. Giant and the Phillies will team up again in support of Phans Feeding Families Day on June 8, which also benefits Philabundance.

“This partnership is a Giant win for Philabundance and those we serve,” said Glenn Bergman, executive director, Philabundance. “The generous ham donation will provide food for some of the 90,000 people we serve each week who may not be able to afford a holiday meal. And as a new supporter of Phans Feeding Families, Giant joins a great group of supporters, including Citizens Bank, the Phillies and the phans, who help us to feed kids in need.”

“Giant loves being part of the Philadelphia community and finding ways to give back to our neighbors, because together, we can make a difference,” said Simon. “And like the rest of the city, we can’t wait to watch the Phillies take the field—with the Giant logo behind them in the outfield.”

Founded in 1923 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Giant Food Stores, an Ahold Delhaize USA company, operates in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia with more than 170 stores and employs more than 30,000 associates.
