Allentown, Pennsylvania, is the GIANT Company’s latest geographical target for a newly redeveloped store. The retailer announced that it will begin planning for a 68,000-square-foot location within the South Mall Shopping Center in Salisbury Township.
“After 35 years at our current location on West Emmaus Ave., it’s time to grow our store footprint and move a little further up the road,” said John Ruane, President. “A larger and updated store will allow us to offer our Allentown area families the latest amenities while underscoring our commitment to providing our customers with great value, the best quality, and friendly service they’ve come to expect from GIANT.”
Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2025 subject to obtaining all of the necessary permits and approvals, according to a press release. Specific store amenities and employment opportunities, as well as opening date, will be shared at a later date.
Upon completion of the new Salisbury Township store, the company’s current store located in Allentown will close. Currently, The GIANT Company operates seven stores and employs more than 1,400 team members in Lehigh County.
