As part of its growth within the greater Philadelphia area, The Giant Company has announced the opening dates for two stores this summer. The city of Philadelphia’s newest store at 501 N. Broad St. will open June 24 and the Richboro store at 1025 Second St. Pike will open July 1.
“As a company, we are committed to helping connect families over a meal by offering convenient, time-saving and fresh meal solutions, whether in-store or online,” said Manuel Haro, divisional VP of greater Philadelphia for The Giant Co. “Our new North Broad and Richboro stores reinforce that commitment to our customers while also continuing our growth strategy within the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding communities.”

At 50,700 square feet, the N. Broad Street Giant at the corner of Spring Garden Street will employ 150 full-and part-time team members. Customers will find variety within Giant’s departments, such as farm fresh garden produce, meat and seafood and bakery.
Other convenient offerings include Starbucks, sushi made in-store, a hot foods section with smoked meats and a Beer & Wine Eatery with slushie options. Customers will also be able to take advantage of an underground parking garage while shopping at the store.
At 49,800 square feet, the new Richboro store will employ 170 full- and part-time team members. In addition to those already listed, the Richboro location will also offer customers a specialty cheese section and an artisan bread case with self-serve loaf slicing. The store will also feature a hot foods bar with smoked meats and sushi made in-store.
These two stores add to The Giant Co.’s growth in the greater Philadelphia area over the past year. In 2021, the company opened four stores in the city, including its urban flagship store Giant at Riverwalk, as well as Giant stores on Cottman Avenue and S. Christopher Columbus Blvd., and a Giant Heirloom Market in the Fashion District.
The company also opened a store in Doylestown and to meet the growing demand for online grocery shopping across the city and in southern New Jersey, the company also opened a Giant Direct e-commerce fulfillment center on Island Avenue in Philadelphia.
