Giant Food Stores announced last month that it opened six new stores in four states. Five of the stores were Shop n’ Save stores that Giant converted to Martin’s Food Markets, and one was a newly constructed Giant to replace a closed store nearby.
Giant acquired the Shop n’ Save locations from Supervalu last November and received approval to close the deal from the FTC in February. The stores are in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia (2). The Giant location is in Warrington, PA.
Giant, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ahold Delhaize USA, now operates 178 supermarkets in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
The company recently opened its first Giant Heirloom Market in Philadelphia, and has plans to open three more of the urban-format grocery stores in Philadelphia this year.
