In time for opening day of the NBA’S 2019-20 season, the Philadelphia 76ers and Giant Food Stores formed a new multi-year partnership with an emphasis on community engagement. Through the partnership, Giant will be named an official partner of the 76ers, have a presence at the center and develop new and exciting promotions for 76ers fans across greater Philadelphia to enjoy.

Giant 76ers“Giant is a tremendous partner for our organization because they match our commitment to community that we so greatly value and embrace,” Philadelphia 76ers President Chris Heck said. “We look forward to working together with Giant to positively impact the lives of thousands of youth and area residents in the Greater Philadelphia area during this exciting season of 76ers basketball.”
