GIANT OPENS BRAND NEW WARRINGTON STORE


Carlisle, PA (April 5, 2019) – This morning GIANT Food Stores celebrated the grand opening of its new Warrington, Pa. store located at 1661 Easton Road. Jessica Fischer, Warrington store manager, joined with her team and community leaders to officially cut the ribbon on the brand-new store, which replaces the GIANT store located at 2395 York Road in Jamison.

The new 56,000 square foot GIANT operates 6 a.m. to midnight seven days a week and employs 180 full and part time associates.

“We’re thrilled to offer our customers a bigger and better GIANT designed for the way families live now,” said Fischer. “I am proud of our associates who have been working hard to bring this new store to the Warrington community – we are so excited to bring fresh ideas to the family table just in time for Easter and Passover holiday shopping.”

The new Warrington store features GIANT’S signature fresh departments with expanded product variety and offerings throughout, including:

  • Farm fresh produce – More than 350 fresh produce items including a variety of organic selections, in-store cut fruit and a full salad bar

  • Full-service deli – Fresh assortment of deli meats and cheeses along with an expanded selection of prepared foods, grab and go meals, and an in-house sushi chef

  • Full-service meat & seafood – Offering USDA Prime, Nature’s Promise meats, fresh fish, and a variety of local offerings

  • Full-service floral – Add a celebratory touch to special occasions with a variety of fresh-cut flowers and stunning arrangements

  • Beer & Wine Eatery – Stocked with an immense selection of more than 300 varieties of both national and local brand beer and wine in addition to fresh-made fare including meal combos, sandwiches, wraps, subs, and salads

In addition, every time Warrington customers shop using their BonusCard through April 21, they can earn extra rewards points toward a free ham. The ham certificate can be redeemed from April 12 through April 21 at any GIANT location. A current tally of a customer’s extra rewards points can be found at the bottom of their receipt when they shop using a BonusCard. Customers also have the opportunity to help their neighbor by donating their free ham certificate to their local food bank or pantry at any GIANT store.
