Customer-friendly technology will allow customers greater speed, convenience, and efficiency while shopping. In the area of health and wellness, the store will feature a health "food store within a store" and Giant's private label organic and natural products, Nature's Promise, including the recently rolled out Nature's Promise meats. Additionally, the store will feature a "Your Neighborhood Drug Store at Giant", Bucks County Coffee, a Wi-Fi Cafe, an International Cheese Island, and the Tree House, an on-site supervised children's play area.
The Huntingdon store, scheduled to open Oct. 25, was built on 26 acres adjacent to a 39,000-square-foot Giant store. Upon the opening of the new store, Giant will close the older store.
