Farm-fresh garden produce at the new store will include an assortment of Asian vegetables and a wide selection of greens. Giant Direct pickup and delivery also will be offered.

Noting strong consumer interest in heat-and-eat and other convenience-oriented meal options, The Giant Co. touted a hot-foods bar featuring smoked meats and sushi made fresh in store at its new Richboro location. “As a company, we are committed to helping connect families over a meal by offering convenient, time-saving and fresh meal solutions, whether in-store or online,” said Manuel Haro, divisional VP of greater Philadelphia for The Giant Co.
As part of its commitment to connecting with local communities, The Giant Co. said its Richboro store celebrated its grand opening by making donations to Churchville Nature Center, The Free Library of Northampton Township, Northampton Township Volunteer Fire Company - Station 3 and Warminster Food Bank.
Grand Opening Day
The Giant Co. held its ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 1, in time for holiday weekend shoppers. The grocer said the new store will operate from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and will employ approximately 170 full- and part-time team members.
