The Giant Co. has released plans for its first store in Benner Township, Pennsylvania. It will be built in a new shopping center located on the northwest corner of Paradise Road and Benner Pike.
“The Giant Co. has been a proud member of the State College community for more than 30 years, and we are excited to now extend our offerings to Benner Township,” said Nicholas Bertram, president of The Giant Co. “We remain committed to investing in our stores, our people and our communities through both new and refreshed stores, meal solutions, enhanced online and delivery options and more for families to have the time to connect with one another. We look forward to serving the grocery needs of Benner Township and the greater Bellefonte community.”
Construction on the new Giant is scheduled to begin in 2022, pending township approvals, and the new store is anticipated to open in 2023. It will bring more than 100 jobs to the local community.
The new store will feature Giant’s signature fresh departments, in addition to a Beer & Wine Eatery and Giant Direct grocery pickup. Additional details about the store will be shared at a later date.
The Giant Co. currently operates two stores in Centre County, employing more than 370 team members.
The Giant Co. is guided by its brand platform, For Today’s Table. The omni-channel retailer serves millions of neighbors across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. Founded in 1923 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, The Giant Co. family of brands includes Giant, Martin’s, Giant Heirloom Market, Giant Direct and Martin’s Direct.
