Giant’s Hampden Location Now Open For Business

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The wait is over. Giant’s new Hampden location is now open for business.

Monique Griego has more on what’s new since its move from the Rotunda.

New life in an old location.

“This is absolutely out of this world, over the top,” said customer Betty Pennington.

Customers couldn’t believe their eyes as they took in the sights of the new Giant grocery store on 41st Street in Hampden.

“I think it’s great. You have more room and everything is just laid out beautiful,” said customer Mary Chinquina.

The store opened this week for the first time, moving from its previous location just down the road at the Rotunda.

“The building was getting a little tired but it was nice to have a newer building,” said customer Neil McCabe.

“We were working at such a small space. We’ve expanded our space down here,” said General Manager Nick Hyson.

Hyson says some of the biggest changes include a new organic and gluten-free section, a high-end meat and butcher’s area and a sushi bar where you can get things made to order. This new Giant is also going high-tech, introducing Scan It. Scan It allows you to scan your items as you shop, so you know exactly how much you’re spending.

After that, you’re only a couple of beeps away from being on your way home. For customers, Scan It is really just icing on the cake to all this upgraded convenience.

“For some reason, everything looks better. It’s bright and it’s nice and some of the things they have, they didn’t have in the other store,” Pennington said.

Giant replaced the old Fresh and Green at that location. The new store also added around 100 jobs.

    Many people facing rising food costs are considering coupons as a way to save money on their grocery bills including myself who uses smart source or Printapons websites to get daily alerts.
