Giant Food Stores will hold the grand openings of its three newest Central Pennsylvania stores this November. Its new Lebanon store, located at 1750 Quentin Road, will open on Friday, Nov. 1 at 8 a.m. and its stores at 3985 Columbia Avenue in Columbia and 35 Friendly Drive in Quarryville will open one week later on Friday, Nov. 8 at 8 a.m. Giant entered into an agreement to acquire the three locations from Musser’s Markets in August.
“We look forward to opening the doors to our three newest stores, which will be updated with plenty of Giant’s fresh ideas and amenities, while also keeping customer favorites like Musser’s bakery cookies, assorted pork sausages and signature chicken salad,” said Nicholas Bertram, president, Giant Food Stores. “We know how important these stores are to their local communities and it’s our privilege to be able to serve our new neighbors. We can’t wait to get to know our new customers across Lancaster and Lebanon County and we look forward to welcoming them to Giant.”
Each store will offer expanded hours of operation from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., seven days a week. Giant will employ more than 300 full- and part-time employees across the three stores, including approximately 220 from Musser’s Markets. The stores will feature Giant’s signature fresh departments, coupled with expanded product variety and new offerings.
Kim O’Hara, a 16-year grocery veteran, has been appointed store manager of the new Lebanon Giant and Erin Arnold, a 15-year grocery veteran, is store manager of the new Columbia Giant. In addition, Nicole McMillan, with 20 years in the grocery industry, will be the Quarryville Giant store manager.
