Giant Food Stores to build a new online fulfilment hub

Date : 13 January 2020

Ahold Delhaize’s subsidiary, Giant Food Stores, has announced plans to build a new online fulfilment hub and pickup facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Second e-commerce hub in the state

The new hub spans across 124,000 square feet, and is due to be the largest Giant Food Stores’ facility in the state of Pennsylvania.

The retailer is also planning to build a couple of new locations: a 52,000 square foot location in Harrisburg and a 66,000 square location in Pocono Summit, Pennsylvania. In addition, 35 stores will be remodeled across its network. The stores’ refresh will bring a streamlined grocery pickup, an optimised assortment and a modernised decor.

The move forms part of Ahold Delhaize’s plan to transform and expand its supply chain operations on the U.S East coast, which was announced last month.
