Beer and wine tastings set for March 9

Carlisle, PAGIANT Food Stores today opened its 58th Beer & Wine Eatery at its Manchester store located at 205 Glen Drive. The Manchester store is celebrating the grand opening with beer and wine tastings on Friday, March 9 from 5 – 7 p.m.

Manchester GIANT associates have been working over the last two months to transform the store to bring the Beer & Wine Eatery to life.

“We’re excited to open our new Beer & Wine Eatery on behalf of our customers who have been looking for a great wine and beer selection,” said Gary Cottingham, store manager. “In addition to preparing the Beer & Wine Eatery for opening, our associates have completed training programs to better assist our customers in choosing the right wine or craft brew.”

Manchester customers will find an immense selection of domestic, imported and craft beers coupled with varieties of wine in the Beer & Wine 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 sandwiches, wraps, subs, salads, and sushi - prepared by a sushi chef on site.

The new eatery seats 30 and is open Monday – Saturday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. GIANT enforces a 100% proof-of-age policy for both beer and wine sales. To protect the community, associates will ask for proper identification – a valid driver’s license, passport or military identification card – from any customer seeking to purchase alcohol, regardless of age.

With this grand opening, a total of 58 GIANT Food Stores and MARTIN’S Food Markets sell both beer and wine in Pennsylvania.
