As part of its continued growth within greater Philadelphia, The Giant Company has announced opening dates for three more stores this December.
The City of Philadelphia’s newest Giant at 1403 South Christopher Columbus Blvd., opens at 8 a.m. Friday, Dec. 3. A new Doylestown Giant at 4377 Swamp Road opens at 8 a.m. Friday, Dec. 10, and the new Giant Heirloom Market in the Fashion District at 801 Market St. opens at 8 a.m. Dec. 16.
“The City of Philadelphia and the surrounding community continues to play a central role in our growth strategy, bringing customers fresh meal solutions both in-store and online,” said Manuel Haro, divisional vice president of greater Philadelphia, The Giant Company.
“We are excited to debut three new stores for our customers just in time for the holiday shopping season and look forward to providing time-saving conveniences to help families spend more time together around the table.”
A new, ground-up 72,500-square-foot Giant is replacing the current Doylestown Giant located at 4357 West Swamp Road, which will close to customers at 5 p.m. Dec. 9. The new Doylestown store will operate from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week, and employ approximately 225 full- and part-time team members.

Doylestown customers will find a larger space with an expanded product assortment. In addition to Giant’s signature fresh departments, the new store will feature both an in-store Starbucks and superfoods café Frutta Bowl, increased health and beauty care offerings, a new specialty cheese shop, and Beer & Wine Eatery.
Alan Carcifi, a grocery veteran with nearly 30 years of experience, will continue to serve as store manager of the new Doylestown store.
All three stores will offer Giant Direct. Designed to serve customers when and how they want to shop, Giant Direct gives busy families the opportunity to order their groceries online for easy pick-up or delivery.
These upcoming grand openings mark a year of significant growth in greater Philadelphia for The Giant Company.
