Jan 19 15
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.
