Giant held a grand opening earlier this week for its 38,000 square foot Giant Direct hub, built on the site of a closed Giant supermarket in Lancaster, PA. The facility serves as a curbside pickup site and grocery delivery center. It’s the fifth site of its kind for Giant.
According to the company, customers can drive up and have their orders – which are made through the Peapod online service and app, or the Giant website – brought to their cars. There is also a walk-up vestibule with lockers for placing and picking up online grocery orders. Items are taken from rows of bar coded shelves, and refrigerated and frozen cases in the warehouse.
