GIANT Heirloom Market Opens in Graduate Hospital
“We’ve had the privilege of getting to know our Graduate Hospital neighbors and they are the true inspiration for our new store,” said Cordero. “I am thrilled to open the doors to GIANT Heirloom Market soon officially, and I’m sure our neighbors will be just as excited to experience a store that connects them to real food, where every trip will inspire them to eat better – and for less.”
The market will combine modern innovation along with an emphasis on the surrounding neighborhood, all while providing the quality expected by GIANT. The 9,500 square foot store in Graduate Hospital will offer a selection of top quality, fresh, regional, and seasonal items.
GIANT’S community vendor relationships are going to be center stage at GIANT Heirloom Market in which passionate Philadelphia-area food purveyors such as High Street on Market, Isgro Pastries, One Village Coffee, and Sarcone’s Bakery will certainly attract local consumers.
The market will have an on-site Produce Chef to inspire customers as well as cut fresh vegetables and fruit on demand. Customers will experience a wide array of plant-based foods, local artisanal bread, kombucha on tap, and may also develop their very own olive oil and vinegar blends, infused alongside the flavors of their choice, at the do-it-yourself station. GIANT Heirloom Market will also showcase a large variety of craft and domestic beers as well as wines.
“We’re proud to serve our Graduate Hospital neighbors during their culinary quests by offering fresh produce, meat and seafood alongside the Philly products they know and love all in a store designed for them,” continued Cordero. “We’re confident that by providing an authentic shopping experience, our passion for locally sourced products and our customers will shine brightly at GIANT Heirloom Market.”
Founded on an “Endless Aisles” approach that emphasizes ease and individualized options, in-store, associates can help guide customers to one of the in-store iPads where items not found in the store can be ordered, to be delivered by the next day.
