As part of the celebration festivities, the first 200 customers in line will receive a GIANT reusable shopping bag, a six pack of GIANT English muffins and other grand opening savings.
“It’s a real honor and privilege to have the opportunity to bring the GIANT brand to Quarryville,” said Hodzic. “We understand the important role this store plays within the community, and we are excited to have many of the same smiling faces on our team ready to welcome customers back to their new store on June 28. We especially want to thank Chip and the entire Hassler family for their support as they helped make the transition process so smooth.”
The Hassler family will continue its deep connection to the Quarryville community by functioning as the shopping center landlord. “GIANT has really lived up to their reputation of caring for the community and being a trustworthy partner,” said Chip Hassler. “My family wishes GIANT all the best.”
