May 15, 2018 – Giant Food Stores is teaming up with the Philadelphia Phillies. The two iconic Pennsylvania brands announced that Giant is the new official grocer of the Phillies, one of America's first professional baseball franchises.
Under the multi-year agreement, Giant will have a visible presence at Citizens Bank Ballpark with its logo on the outfield wall, in a section known as Ashburn Alley, and high up on the stadium’s video screens. Giant also plans several new promotions for the avid Phillies fan base – and all greater Philadelphia consumers – to enjoy.
Better still, the partnership extends beyond the ballpark into local communities, with Giant and the Phillies set to work together to fight hunger and support childhood fitness and nutrition.
”As we celebrate our 95th year in Pennsylvania, we are thrilled to join with our hometown team both inside and outside of the ballpark,” said Matt Simon, Giant Vice President of Marketing. “We feel we can ‘hit for the fences’ in our communities alongside the Phillies as we fight hunger and help keep kids healthy.”
