Giant Food Stores has announced plans to bring new and revamped stores to Pennsylvania over the course of the next two years and will invest $70 million in capital expenditures across the state. Specifically, six new stores will be built throughout 2018 and 2019, including stores in the East Stroudsburg and Walnutport communities—a first for the Ahold Delhaize-owned banner.

Nicholas Bertram, President, Giant Food Stores“We are positioning the company for long-term growth, and we are excited to grow our presence within East Stroudsburg and Walnutport to better serve the families in those communities,” said Nicholas Bertram, President. “This year Giant is celebrating our founding in Pennsylvania 95 years ago, so we’re especially proud to make these new investments in our home state.”

In its press release, the retailer announced the following new store locations:

  • 300 Lincoln Ave., East Stroudsburg
  • 300 S. Best Ave., Walnutport
  • 176 W. Street Road, Feasterville-Trevose, which replaces the store at 1055 Bustleton Pike; anticipated opening summer 2018
  • 2121 South Atherton St., State College will replace the store at 2222 East College Ave.; anticipated opening late 2018/early 2019

Additionally, the company announced two major store remodels at the following locations:

  • 14635 Mt. Airy Road, Shrewsbury, a 4,000 square-foot expansion
  • 698 Downingtown Pike, West Chester

Giant promised that the newly-remodeled stores would offer a broader variety of products and an assortment tailored to customers in each community, including more local products, a deeper assortment of natural and organic selections, and healthier snack options. The retailer also promised improvements to these stores’ layouts that allow for easier navigation.

In its press release, the company also noted that these capital investments follow the completion of a new Peapod wareroom, opened in partnership with Giant in North Coventry, Pennsylvania, this February. And added that these investments are in addition to the ongoing investments in Giant Beer & Wine Eateries—of which there are currently 59 in the state—that began in 2011.

Giant also announced three new fuel stations to be added to existing store locations in the cities of Lititz, Horsham, and Bethlehem. In total, the retailer anticipates bringing approximately 300 full- and part-time jobs to communities throughout the Quaker State.
