Giant Food to Debut New Prototype

Landover, Md. Giant Food will open a new store prototype in the Southeast area of Washington, D.C., this Friday.

Dubbed "Super Giant," the 63,000-sq.-ft. full-service food store and pharmacy is located at a former National Guard facility known as Camp Simms. According to the company, the store will be the first district supermarket to open east of the Anacostia River since 1997.

Giant said this new prototype moves away from its conventional layout, and will feature new decor, signage, and larger food and pharmacy departments in a state-of-the-art energy-efficient building.
