BEER GARDEN AND EATERIES OPEN AT EASTON AREA GIANT FOOD STORES

Carlisle, PA. (December 13, 2016) - GIANT Food Stores has opened two new Beer Garden and Eateries in its Easton, PA area stores located at 801 S. 25th St. and 301 Town Center Blvd. Both Beer Garden and Eateries seat 32 and are open Monday – Saturday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

"With the holiday season in full swing, we're excited to provide our Easton area customers the added convenience of saving time when shopping for all of their entertaining needs," said Erik Keptner, senior vice president of sales, merchandising & marketing, GIANT. "In addition, we look forward to introducing wine offerings at both of our Easton stores in the coming weeks."

Easton customers will find a vast selection of domestic, imported and craft beers in the Beer Garden and Eatery. Customers currently have a "mix-a-six" option where they can create their own six packs from a variety of craft beers. Customers can also choose from eat-in and take-out selections offered, including a hot buffet, salad bar, sandwiches, wraps and subs, sushi, piping hot soups, Chinese food, baked foods and desserts, and a wide selection of other beverages.

GIANT enforces a 100% proof-of-age policy at the new Beer Garden and Eateries. Cashiers will ask for proper identification – a valid driver's license, passport or military identification card – from any customer wanting to purchase alcohol, regardless of age.

With these grand openings, a total of 25 GIANT and MARTIN'S Food Markets stores sell beer in Pennsylvania.
