Haverford Giant Awakens Today With Mummers in Attendance

It’s giant, all right: The new Giant Food Store in the Quarry Center at 116 W. Township Line Road is 76,000 square feet, has a Beer Garden and Eatery, a Starbucks, and a six-bay gas station outside. The store also has Shopping Solutions kiosks, so customers can price items as they go–or even get recipes.

Christopher Brand, Giant’s manager of community and public relations, told the Delco Daily Times, “This store represents the future of supermarket retailing.” But a better quote came from Kathy Callaghan of Upper Darby, who was looking at the freezers: “Oooo! Oooo! It’s like ‘Ice Cream World.’”

Opening day features Mummers because that is what “opening day” means.
