LANDOVER, MD - Giant Food, one of the greater Washington D.C.-area’s preeminent retailers, has announced a $175 million capital investment into expansion and the improvement of its stores over the next two years. The investment will include a new store location opening in Fairfax Circle, VA, as well as 24 store remodels.
“As the region's leading grocer, this announcement is part of our long-term commitment to deliver a consistently exceptional experience for our shoppers,” noted President Gordon Reid, in a press release. “We look forward to updating and enhancing our existing stores and constructing both new and replacement locations to give our shoppers a fresh and imaginative selection, unique in-store experiences, and superior customer service.”
New and remodeled stores will reportedly feature new amenities such as enhanced perishable, produce, beer, wine, and spirits offerings; full-service florists; expanded natural and organic departments; hot Asian food bars; fresh squeezed juice bars; enhanced check-out zones; full-service pharmacies; and more.
Giant Food's latest investment investment comes in addition to a $21 million investment in a new Olney, MD, location—slated to open in spring of 2019—and new locations in Herndon and Alexandria, VA, that opened last month.
