Giant supermarket to remodel 24 stores, add 500 regional jobs

LANDOVER, Md. (WBFF) - Giant Food plans to add 500 jobs and spend $175 million into remodeling 24 stores across DC, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.

The supermarket chain just opened a $21 million store in Montgomery County's Olney, just opened two stores in northern Virginia and is set to open another one there, according to a press release.

The 500 new jobs will be for full-time and part-time associates across the region, "as a result of the new projects," according to the release.

The remodeled supermarkets will feature amenities like enhanced food offerings, full-service florists, expanded natural/organic departments, hot Asian food bars, fresh-squeezed juice bars, enhanced checkout zones and full-service pharmacies.

“As the region’s leading grocer, this announcement is part of our long-term commitment to deliver a consistently exceptional experience for our shoppers,” said Gordon Reid, President of Giant Food, in a statement. “We look forward to updating and enhancing our existing stores and constructing both new and replacement locations to give our shoppers a fresh and imaginative selection, unique in-store experiences and superior customer service.”

Giant Food is headquartered in Landover, Prince George's County, and has 164 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.
