It will be ‘out with the old and in the new’ for the GIANT Food Store in Feasterville. The W. Street Road location will have the same employee team as the Bustleton Pike store plus 65 new employees!
On Friday, Aug. 10 there will be plenty to celebrate. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 7:45 a.m. The Philadelphia Mummers String Band will fill the parking lot with music, and the Phillie Phanatic will be there for a fun photo-opt.
“There will be a lot of excitement inside the store and outside the store too,” Chris Brand, GIANT Spokesperson said. “There will be quite an array of fresh products (with) lots of sampling going on.”
The first 200 customers to step in line will receive a free Phillies reusable shopping bag with a six pack of GIANT English muffins inside.
“GIANT is the official grocer of the Philadelphia Phillies,” Brand noted. “Or should I say the first place Phillies.”
The brand new GIANT will have all your usual favorites, plus local products from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. And a full-service pharmacy open seven days a week.
The 66,000 sq.-ft building is nearly 25 percent larger than the former store and will come with expanded options like a Beer & Wine Eatery. The store will feature nearly 400 different wine and beer options. Including domestic and imported beers as well as some from local breweries. Brand said there will be seating for 30 available.
“(Customers) can grab a sandwich, a meal combo, a salad, something off the hot bar and enjoy it right there inside the Beer & Wine Eatery.”
There will also be a Mix-a-Six case option so customers can try a variety of different brews and find their favorite.
Before GIANT cuts the ribbon at the new location, there will be a donation presentation ceremony where the Lower Southampton Twp. Police Department, Lower Southampton Twp. Fire Marshal’s Office, Neshaminy School District, St. Stephan’s Lutheran Church Food Pantry, and Liberty USO will each receive $1,000.
“GIANT is really big in giving back to its communities. We believe strongly that it’s important to have a strong community and strong non-profit organizations to help support the community.”
