Giant Food is pleased to be one of the largest private employers in Maryland, where our company is headquartered.
Most recently, Giant Food opened a new flagship store in Olney, Maryland, bringing on 135 associates and still hiring. At the grand opening, associate Liz Bryan was honored for 48 years of service, having attended the original Olney Giant Food store opening in 1972. We have also just opened a new store in Owings Mills, Maryland, which will bring approximately 75 new jobs.
Giant Food is creating even more new full- and part-time jobs through Giant Pickup, launched this summer to enable online grocery service throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. After customers place their order, they select a pickup time window, including next-day or same-day fulfillment, which can be as soon as four hours after the order is placed. Giant Food associates pick and pack the orders and, upon customers’ arrival at the store, bring out their groceries and load them into their car.
Giant Food recently introduced a Young Professionals (YoPro) resource group to better understand and meet the needs of new associates. YoPro is designed to create a sense of community among new associates, draw on their insights and experiences, and give them a voice throughout the company.
