GIANT Food Stores unveils $114 million strategic growth plan

GIANT Food Stores plans to invest $114 million over the next 18 months – building on last year’s success of its two new brands GIANT Heirloom Market and GIANT DIRECT.

Investments include an innovative GIANT DIRECT ecommerce fulfillment center, two new stores and remodeling for 35 existing stores. The omni-channel fulfillment center will be GIANT’s largest and support its ecommerce brand GIANT DIRECT, which has experienced double-digit growth since its launch last year.

The center will provide more capacity, better distribution and room to grow home delivery and in-store pick-up for online orders. GIANT will partner with Peapod Digital Labs to drive the innovation development for the facility.
