Landover, Maryland-based Giant Food is opening a new store in Owings Mills, Maryland. The 66,730-s.f. store at 10210 Mill Run Circle is slated to open Friday, Aug. 23, at 6 a.m. It replaces two existing stores in Owings Mill located at 9934 Reisterstown Road and 9730 Groffs Mill Drive.
According to Giant, this is the first store to be built from the ground up with its new in-store format and design. Upgraded and enhanced features include expanded hot and prepared food selections; fresh sushi; an extensive organic section; and a full-service pharmacy. The store will also house a PNC Bank branch and Starbucks as well as a full-service floral section and expanded cheese, deli, meat and seafood departments.
The Owings Mill store also will feature Giant’s Pickup service that launched earlier this summer. Shoppers place their grocery orders online at GiantFood.com and in-store associates will hand-select, pack and deliver orders to shoppers’ cars.
“We are extremely excited to be opening our new store in Owings Mills, a community we have been embedded in since 1980,” said Ira Kress, interim president of Giant Food. “The new location will be packed with improved features, including the brand-new Giant Pickup service, a full-service pharmacy and a large organic and healthy food section.”
Shoppers at the Reisterstown Road and Groffs Mill Drive stores will not experience an interruption in service, as the new store will open the morning after the nearby locations close. The new store will create more than 50 new jobs.
