GIANT Food Stores recently announced the unveiling of its flagship store in Philadelphia last week. Now, the major grocer has announced the acquisition of Musser's Markets, taking over the three locations in Quarryville, Columbia, and Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
“We were honored when the Musser family contacted us about purchasing their wonderful locations,” said Nicholas Bertram, President of GIANT Food Stores. “The Musser family founded their grocery store in 1925, and we recognize the deep roots and strong reputation they have in Lancaster and Lebanon counties. We look forward to continuing their legacy of caring for families and the community.”
GIANT Food Stores continues dominating the Pennsylvania market, already acquiring Ferguson & Hassler in May and Shop 'n Save in April. According to the press release, GIANT is expected to complete the transaction by the end of October of this year. After the acquisition, GIANT plans to close the stores temporarily to do a complete remodel, which is expected to take about a week to finish. At the time of publication, GIANT hasn’t disclosed any further information about the conversion, but all Musser’s Markets associates are able to apply and interview for new opportunities with GIANT.
