GIANT is committed to living and giving to the associates, customers, and communities for more than ninety years.
Since its founding more than nine decades ago in Carlisle, GIANT has been committed to being a great place to work, a great place to shop and a great neighbor.
It has grown into one of the leading supermarket operations in the United States, with 200 grocery stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
Better Place to Work:
GIANT views their associates as the company’s greatest strength. In recent years, GIANT has grown to be one of the largest private sector employers in many of the communities it serves with approximately 31,000 full-and part-time associates. The company aims to remain an employer of choice by offering competitive wages and benefits, a work environment based upon respect, and ample opportunities for career advancement.
Better Place to Shop:
GIANT founder David Javitch built his business on the simple premise of “the best product at the fairest price” and the company has stayed true to its heritage by offering low prices and savings to customers every day.
GIANT also understands that healthy eating choices begin at the supermarket. To assist shoppers with making healthy choices, GIANT has a team of nutritionist at select stores ready to assist customers with questions on healthy eating while they shop and provide one-on-one nutrition consultations.
“Living Here, Giving Here” defines the company’s commitment to local communities. In 2014, more than $27 million was donated in support of hunger relief efforts, improving the lives of children and building healthier communities.
