Grocery delivery has become a staple for many shoppers these days. As work-life balance continues to become a focal point in the everyday, consumers are striving for more convenient options from grocery stores. Giant Food has heard its customers loud and clear, and it’s providing an exclusive delivery service, Giant Delivers, with a new e-commerce fulfillment center in Manassas, Virginia.
“Giant is a leader in home delivery, and over the years we’ve continued to expand our services and footprint throughout the region,” said Joe Urban, Vice President, Supply Chain Operations. “We’re proud to continue growing as a local employer focused on making positive impacts for both our customers and the entire Giant family, and with the opening of our Manassas e-commerce fulfillment center, we’re thrilled to be creating 200 new jobs for the community.”
Standing at 82,000 square feet, the facility will make delivery possible for thousands of new customers in over 140 zip codes.
The new facility will house an extensive local assortment and also feature the company’s latest batch-picking software and an extensive conveyor system that will enable faster, more frequent delivery options.
This is the second e-commerce fulfillment center for the company, according to a press release. Its existing Hanover, Maryland, facility will continue servicing Giant Delivers customers across its local markets.
“We are continually looking for ways to better serve our communities and our customers. This investment in our newest facility helps us reach even more people with even more convenience,” said Gregg Dorazio, Director of E-Commerce. “By shopping and delivering your orders for no fee between Tuesday-Thursday, and for just $3.95 on weekends, we’re truly living up to our promise to be a one-stop shop, giving customers affordable options to shop so they can get back to the moments that matter the most.”
Giant Delivers requires no subscription. Customers can place a Giant Delivers order online or while on the go through the Giant Food mobile app.
