Giant Food will hold a grand opening of a new location Aug. 5 at 12028 Cherry Hill Road in Silver Spring, Maryland. The opening will bring 100 new jobs to the community and follows a series of grand reopenings at three Giant Food stores across Maryland and Virginia.
With about 65,000-square-feet of shopping space, the Silver Spring community will enjoy amenities such as a meat and seafood service, an expanded gourmet cheese selection and prepared food offerings such as freshly made sushi and pizza. The new store will also be equipped with full-service deli and floral departments and a Starbucks café.
“Giant Food has been serving the Silver Spring community since 1958 and we are pleased to bring this new store that will provide a fresh space for everyone to enjoy,” said Ira Kress, president of Giant Food. “The new store is designed to bring the best products and value to the community while continuing to offer top-notch service to new and existing customers.”
The store also includes a full-service Giant Pharmacy, offering a variety of services such as vaccine administrations by certified pharmacists, including COVID-19 vaccines and booster doses, as well as free consultations including recommendations and assistance with selecting appropriate over-the-counter and prescription products.
In addition to shopping in store, customers also have the option to place Giant Pickup or Giant Delivers orders or the Giant Food mobile app and can choose to pick up their groceries at the store or have them delivered directly to their doorsteps. Available through Giant Delivers, Giant is offering Local Produce Boxes containing locally grown, in-season fruit and vegetables sourced straight from local area farms.
Local customers also have access to Giant’s Healthy Living Team of licensed nutritionists for free online and phone consultations, as well as ongoing online nutrition classes and webinars.
The store replaces the Giant store located at 11701 Beltsville Drive in Beltsville. Customers should not experience an interruption in service as the new store will open the following morning after the nearby location closes.
