Giant Food Stores will celebrate the grand opening of a new store located at 1661 Easton Road, Warrington, Pennsylvania, on Friday, April 5, at 8 a.m. The new store replaces Giant’s current store located at 2395 York Road, Jamison, which will close for business on April 4 at 6 p.m.
Approximately 50 additional full-and part-time jobs have been created, bringing the total number of Warrington Giant associates to 180. The new 56,000-s.f. store will operate from 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week.
Store Manager Jessica Fischer, a 20-year grocery veteran, will bring her team and community leaders together in a 7:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 5. As part of the celebration festivities, the first 200 customers in line will receive a Giant reusable shopping bag, a six pack of Giant English muffins and other grand opening savings.
“We are excited to debut our new look and plenty of fresh ideas to our Warrington area customers,” said Fischer. “This new store is larger than our original location, giving us the opportunity to offer more farm-fresh produce and quality products along with the introduction of new offerings like fresh-squeezed juice and an expanded assortment of plant-based products, creating a unique, one-stop shopping experience.”
The Warrington store will feature a farm-fresh produce department with more than 350 fresh produce items, including a variety of organic selections; a full-service deli; a full-service meat and seafood department; a full-service bakery; full-service floral department and a full-service pharmacy, with pharmacists available seven days a week.
The new store also will include a beer and wine eatery stocked with more than 300 varieties of both local and national brand beer and wine. The eatery will seat 30 and will be open Monday—Saturday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. where customers can enjoy meal combos, sandwiches, wraps, subs, salads, sushi and a hot bar.
The new Warrington store is part of a $70 million investment Giant announced last year to grow the store network across Pennsylvania.
