Customers can now shop at Giant’s flagship urban supermarket in Philadelphia.
The store opened its doors Friday, making it one of the largest supermarkets in Center City. Mayor Jim Kenney, the Philly Phanatic and city officials attended the ribbon cutting ceremony, according to Supermarket News.The 65,000-square-foot store takes up the first two floors of the Riverwalk apartment building on the corner of 23rd and Arch Streets.
This marks the latest addition to the Riverwalk project, a mixed-use development along the Schuylkill River. It is the fifth Giant location in the Philadelphia area. “This is a very big day for our company, but it’s also a very big day for Philadelphia — a city that we love, and a city where we’ve made a commitment to bring a positive impact in the way that we do business, the way that we employ and the way that we give back.
We’re trying to make a difference here because we believe in the future and the potential of this great city,” Giant President Nicholas Bertram said in a press conference at the store’s grand opening on Friday.
