New store alert! Retail expansions are our jam here at Deli Market News, and The GIANT Company’s latest announcement was music to our ears. The ever-expanding grocer is bringing a new store to the Benner Township area of Pennsylvania.
“At The GIANT Company, we are a neighborhood grocery store, but we are also members of the communities we serve,” said John Ruane, Interim President, The GIANT Company. “The opening of our Benner Township GIANT builds on our legacy of serving the State College community for more than 30 years, offering families convenience, meal solutions, and savings to meet their lifestyles. Opening just in time for holiday celebrations, our new store reinforces our commitment to fulfilling our purpose of connecting families to a better future.”
Set to open on December 16, the new 50,000-square-foot store will offer GIANT’s signature fresh departments, such as fresh meat and seafood and bakery. According to a press release, the new Benner Township store also features a hot foods bar with smoked meats and sushi made in-store.
The new store will be managed by 43-year grocery veteran Thomas “Woody” Woodring.
“We are excited to open our doors to the greater Bellefonte community and, just in time for the holiday season,” said Woodring. “Our new store will feature the very best of GIANT’s For Today’s Table® brand, but especially our customer promises—simplify shopping, inspire fresh ideas, and create healthier communities. Our team is here to help, and we will strive to create meaningful shopping experiences that help families gather around the table.”
Customers of the new store will have access to GIANT’s Choice Rewards program as well as GIANT Direct, which gives busy families the opportunity to order their groceries online for easy pick-up.
“We know price is top of mind for our customers, and it is for us too,” said Woodring. “GIANT Choice Rewards is a great way for customers to shop and save. It helps families stretch their dollars by offering hundreds of dollars in savings each week. Customers choose rewards that matter the most to them, delivering an easy and personalized shopping experience that saves time and money.”
