Giant Food, LLC Key Developments

Giant Food to Close Store in Old Town; to Open ninth Store at Potomac Yards in Alexandria

After 64 years, Giant Food is closing its grocery store on First Street in Old Town Alexandria. The decision to close the 18,000-square-foot location was based largely on the store's age and space limitations. The company's newer stores tend to be between 50,000 and 60,000 square feet. The Old Town Giant will close at 6 p.m. on Feb. 12. All employees have been offered jobs at other Giant locations. There are eight other Giant stores within a six-mile radius of the Old Town location. A ninth, at Potomac Yards in Alexandria, is scheduled to open this fall.

Lovin' Scoopful Adds 400 Stores to East Coast Distribution

Lovin' Scoopful to benefit Special Olympics and other nonprofits that help empower the human spirit, has increased its distribution of Lovin' Scoopful Gourmet Light Ice Cream to more than 400 stores throughout the eastern United States to include all Ahold USA stores, including Stop & Shop, Giant Food, Martin's Food Market, Giant Food Stores and Peapod Stores. New flavors to the east coast include: What the Fudge, Lovin's exotically rich Out of This World Chocolate smothered with thick fudge; and Moose Tracks, a combination of peanut butter cups and fudge slathered in vanilla ice cream. In addition, Lovin' Scoopful changed its packaging to a 'sqround' tub, allowing it to fit into additional store shelving models. The new sqround packaging will roll out nationwide in 2015. Made with an all-natural base, Lovin' Scoopful Gourmet Light Ice Cream contains half the fat of premium ice cream brands, providing a healthier alternative while maintaining a super-premium taste. Lovin' Scoopful Gourmet Light Ice Cream retails for $3.75 to $4.99 and is available at select grocery stores around the country.
