The GIANT Company Expands Presence With Two New Stores in the Philadelphia Area; Manuel Haro Details
CARLISLE, PA - The GIANT Company is moving full-steam ahead toward expansion, as the retailer will be opening multiple new locations in the coming weeks. GIANT is expanding its footprint in Pennsylvania with two new stores: one in Philadelphia, to open on June 24, and one in Richboro, to open on 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 Vice President of Greater Philadelphia. “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.”
The Philadelphia store will stand at 50,700 square feet and employs approximately 150 full- and part-time team members. At 49,800 square feet, the new Richboro store will employ 170 full- and part-time team members, a press release stated.
Both stores will feature GIANT’S signature fresh departments such as farm fresh garden produce and other convenient offerings like a hot foods section. The stores will also offer GIANT Direct, which provides the opportunity to order groceries online for easy pick-up or delivery.
The new stores build on GIANT’s already impressive growth in the greater Philadelphia area. In 2021, the company opened four new stores in the city including its urban flagship store GIANT at Riverwalk. GIANT also opened a state-of-the-art GIANT Direct E-Commerce Fulfillment Center in Philadelphia.
