Giant Food says it will open a new store in Fairfax Circle, where a major redevelopment project is currently taking shape. The new store is in addition to remodeling at 24 other stores in the Washington area. 

Giant opened two new stores in Herndon and Alexandria earlier this year. It recently closed a longtime store on Main Street in Fairfax.

In addition to the new Fairfax Circle location, Giant will also be remodeling 24 store locations to feature new amenities such as enhanced perishable, produce, beer, wine and spirits offerings, full-service florists, expanded natural and organic departments, hot Asian food bars, fresh squeezed juice bars, enhanced check-out zones, full-service pharmacies and more.

As a result of the new projects, Giant anticipates the creation of approximately 500 new jobs in the communities it serves through the hiring of full and part-time associates.

Also part of Giant’s commitment to the communities it serves, the grocer regularly supports local and national charitable organizations and local families through various annual in-store programs such as the A+ School Rewards Program, the Pediatric Cancer Research Program‘Get Out and Play’ health and fitness clinics and the Giant National Capital BBQ Battle.
