Giant Food Stores says it will launch a new e-commerce hub in Lancaster and bring about 150 new jobs to the city.
The hub at Giant’s former North Reservoir Street store will offer curbside pickup orders where online orders are delivered right to customers’ cars in the parking area.
It will be the fifth e-commerce hub Giant has opened in Pennsylvania with Peapod, its online grocery partner.
“We’re seeing double-digit growth in online ordering and grocery delivery,” Giant president Nicholas Bertram said in a statement. “We are rededicating ourselves to the Lancaster market, and we want this cutting-edge facility to be unique – something the Northeast neighborhood will be proud of while we meet this demand.”
Giant recently remodeled its Lititz store and three in Lancaster; on Lititz Pike, Columbia Avenue, and Centerville Road.
The food retailer also broke ground on a fuel station near the Lititz store. The station is set to open in August.
