CARLISLE, Pa. – The GIANT Co. will expand its footprint in Philadelphia, adding a new store in the northeastern part of the city.

“With its diverse neighborhoods, people, and undeniable passion for food, there’s no place quite like Philadelphia, and that’s exactly why The GIANT Company continues to invest in new stores across the city,” company president Nicholas Bertram said. “Featuring a new look and the very best of the GIANT brand, once completed, our new Cottman Avenue store will serve as a bold sign of our commitment to the city, bringing along hundreds of new jobs all while increasing access to great-tasting and affordable food, inspiring meal solutions and time-saving grocery conveniences to the families counting on us.”

With the help of its customers and supplier partners, and through strategic partnerships with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Philabundance, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Urban League of Philadelphia, and Please Touch Museum, the company has contributed more than $35 million in support of its purpose of connecting families for a better future, the retailer said.
