Giant scheduled to open three stores — two in Philadelphia — in December

A new 32,000-square-foot Heirloom Market at 801 Market St. in Philadelphia is one of three stores Giant Co. is scheduled to open in the region in December. 

It will join a new store at 1403 S. Christopher Columbus Blvd. in Philadelphia, and a new location in Doylestown, and combined, the three will employ nearly 500 people. Last week, Giant held a grand opening for a store on Cottman Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia where the company said it employs 150 people. 

These new stores are part of an effort by Giant, an Ahold Delhaize USA brand, to gain market share in the region and bolster sales. Part of the strategy is to increase online sales and, to that end, Giant opened earlier this month a 124,000-square-foot automated fulfillment center on Island Avenue in Philadelphia to fill online orders. 

Giant has five stores in Philadelphia between its Giant and Heirloom brands. It has announced two more stores that will eventually open in the city — a 50,000-square-foot store on North Broad Street at the corner of Spring Garden Street, and a 40,000-square-foot store at Tower Investment’s project at South Broad Street at the corner of Washington Avenue. It remains committed to opening at Abbotts Square.
