Giant Announces Genuardi’s Conversion Schedule

The Genuardi's in King of Prussia will close July 5 and reopen as a Giant on July 15.

 

Giant Food Stores, based in Carlisle, Pa., recently announced its schedule for converting 15 Philadelphia-area Genuardi’s locations to Giant supermarkets. Our area has already experienced a similar conversion .

The Giant conversion will take place in three phases, the first of which will begin June 28. Five stores will close for ten days during each phase.

Please read "Food Trade News" June 2012 issue. Strong speculation that Acme Markets owner need to divest the very troubled division, by closing or selling all Acmes at "fire sale prices".

Giant is owned by foreign-owned Ahold, which is spending billions to US to dominate retail food on East Coast. Please patronize American family-owned ShopRite. Thanks

ShopRite is cheap and pays higher wages and sells better items and cares about town where its stores are located. to hell with Giant!!!
