Giant Food Stores is developing three new stores in the Philadelphia area as part of a $70 million investment in its properties across Pennsylvania.
The new stores will replace existing ones that are nearby and give the supermarket an opportunity to have an updated, fresh look within the vicinity of an existing location so not to disrupt shoppers routines too much. At a store in West Chester, it plans to undertake a renovation. Grocery stores frequently remodel their stores to keep up with trends as well as to give shoppers new experiences that they can’t get from ordering online. They also do it to stay competitive when new chains enter a market.
Giant, which is based in Carlisle, and part of Ahold Delhaize, plans to:
- Open a 66,000-square-foot store this summer at 176 W. Street Road in Feasterville that will replace a store at 1055 Bustleton Ave.;
- Open a 56,400-square-foot store early next year at 1661 Easton Road in Warrington that will replace its location at 2396 York Road in Jamison; and
- Open a 74,105-square-foot store late next year at West Chester Pike and the Blue Route in Broomall that will replace its 2910 Springfield Road location.
