Capital idea: Giant Food to invest in expansion, store enhancement

December 11, 2018 – Giant Foodour brand based in Landover, Maryland, recently announced a $175 million (154 million) capital investment for expansion and improvements over the next two years in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The investment will include one new store and 24 remodels.  

"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 Brand President Gordon Reid. "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." 

The new store will be located in Fairfax Circle, Virginia. Last month, Giant opened two other stores in Virginia that both have more space for updated amenities and better product selection. 

The 24 store remodels in the region will feature new amenities such as enhanced perishable, produce, beer, wine and spirits offerings, full-service florists, expanded natural and organic departments, Asian food bars and fresh-squeezed juice bars, as well as enhanced checkout zones and full-service pharmacies.  

These efforts are in addition to the brand’s $21 million investment in a new Giant store in Olney, Maryland, that is set to open in the spring of 2019.
