NEW YORK — Ahold Delhaize’s Stop & Shop and GIANT Co. units are each making investments to strengthen their positions in key markets.
Stop & Shop held a grand opening ceremony earlier this month at its newly remodeled Bay Plaza store in the Bronx, part of a $140 million capital infusion that over the next two years will upgrade all 25 of the grocer’s New York City locations.
“We’re proud to make such a significant investment in New York City, and we’re excited to show customers that we can be the one-stop shop for everything they need and that we’re delivering great value, particularly in this current economic environment,” Stop & Shop president Gordon Reid said.
Meanwhile, GIANT recently announced opening dates for two new Philadelphia-area stores that are set to debut in the coming weeks.
The newest GIANT outlet within the city is set to open on North Broad Street on June 24. And a GIANT store about 25 miles to the northeast is set to open in Richboro, Pa., on July 1.
“As a company, we are committed to helping connect families over a meal by offering convenient, time-saving and fresh meal solutions, whether in-store or online,” said Manuel Haro, GIANT’s divisional vice president for greater Philadelphia. “Our new North Broad and Richboro stores reinforce that commitment while also continuing our growth strategy.”
