The Giant Co. Reveals Plans For New Store In Philadelphia

Philadelphia

The Giant Co. has revealed plans for another investment in the city of Philadelphia as it prepares to begin construction on a new store, located at 2201 Cottman Ave.

“With its diverse neighborhoods, people and undeniable passion for food, there’s no place quite like Philadelphia, and that’s exactly why The Giant Co. continues to invest in new stores across the city,” said Nicholas Bertram, president. “Featuring a new look and the very best of the Giant brand, once completed our new Cottman Avenue store will serve as a bold sign of our commitment to the city, bringing along hundreds of new jobs all while increasing access to great-tasting and affordable food, inspiring meal solutions and time-saving grocery conveniences to the families counting on us.”

Construction on the new 67,000-square-foot Giant is scheduled to begin in late March with an anticipated opening date later this year. The new store will feature Giant’s signature fresh departments, in addition to a beer and wine eatery, expanded plant-based offerings, made-to-order meal solutions and Giant Direct grocery pickup. More details about the store will be shared at a later date.

As the second largest employer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, The Giant Co. employs more than 35,000 team members, including nearly 400 in Philadelphia. The company anticipates hiring approximately 200 team members for the new Cottman Avenue store.

Including Giant and Giant Heirloom Market, the company currently operates four stores in the city of Philadelphia. These locations, along with the Cottman Avenue project and the company’s previously announced Riverwalk store and Island Avenue e-commerce fulfillment center, bring its total capex investment in the city to more than $106 million. With the help of its customers and supplier partners, and through strategic partnerships with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Philabundance, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Urban League of Philadelphia and Please Touch Museum, the company has contributed more than $35 million in support of its purpose of connecting families for a better future.

The Giant Co. recently released plans to build a new, bigger store in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, to replace the current store located at 4357 West Swamp Road. See story, here.
