LANCASTER, Pa. — Giant Food Stores said it plans to open its second Giant To Go convenience store here Thursday. The 4,000-square-foot store offers meal solutions targeting busy customers, including an expanded variety of perishable items from the first Giant to Go, which opened nearby in 2009.
The new store has been designed with three distinct shopping areas: Meals to Go, Groceries to Go, and Snacks to Go. The store includes rotisserie chicken and fried chicken, a full salad bar, and new subs — complete with a toppings bar which allows customers to customize their own sub. The coffee station will include a self-service espresso and real cappuccino machine. Other unique offerings include fresh sushi made daily, breakfast sandwiches, hot oatmeal and hot soup.
“We gained valuable customer insight from our first Giant To Go location, and this new Giant To Go will deliver an expanded fresh variety of food coupled with all the traditional convenience store offerings,” Sean Michael, store manager, said in a statement. “Time-starved customers will find fresh and healthy meal alternatives prepared especially for them.”
