Giant Food will celebrate a new seating area, soup and salad bar and bakery, among other upgrades in its Georgetown Square store at 10400 Old Georgetown Rd.
The Grand Reopening ribbon cutting (the store never actually closed during the renovation) is set for the morning of Friday, April 12. Throughout that weekend, Giant will provide a “tasting passport” to all customers from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on April 12 and from noon to 5 p.m. on April 13 and April 14 for a chance to win free groceries for a month.
Other improvements include six new self-checkout lanes and nine additional regular checkout lanes, expanded frozen food, international food and natural food sections and a redesigned produce department with 20 percent more produce.
The deli has also been redesigned with a new gourmet cheese case and olive bar.
Giant will make a donation to KEEN Greater DC, a nonprofit that organizes recreational activities for kids with developmental and physical disabilities, at the ceremony. County Executive Isiah Leggett and Councilmember Roger Berliner are scheduled to attend.
