All Ahold USA news



Giant Landover is a leading supermarket brand in the mid-Atlantic United States.

The first Giant Landover store was opened in 1936 in Washington, D.C. when founders N.M. Cohen and Samuel Lehrman introduced a new concept in food retailing – the supermarket – to the Washington area. They believed that a large store selling a high volume of goods and operating on a self-services basis could afford to offer customers a wide variety of quality food at the lowest possible prices. The first Giant Food store was an instant hit and since that time the company has been an integral part of the local community, growing to serve the entire Baltimore / Washington and Delaware market areas.

From its inception, Giant Landover has been an innovator in the retail food industry. The company’s first stores played a significant role in bringing food prices down in the area and helped lead many developments in the supermarket industry. Among other milestones, in 1958 the company opened the first of its Super Giant stores, featuring 35 different departments including clothing, jewelry, hardware, and appliances.

Giant customers were also the first in the United States to see nutritional labeling as part of the shelf price label, long before this information was required on packaging. In 1970, Giant hired the industry's first consumer advocate, who worked with government and industry experts to develop and test consumer programs, including unit pricing and nutrition labeling – a role still important in the company today.

Along with the other divisions in Ahold USA, Giant Landover continues to focus on strengthening its own-brand offerings. Giant Landover is placing a strong focus on its fresh assortment and successful customer loyalty programs, including Gas Rewards. The division is using smartphone and internet technology to make shopping more convenient for customers and introducing pick-points that enable customers to order groceries online and pick them up at the store without leaving their cars.

Giant Landover is strongly committed to supporting local charities and fundraising initiatives.

At the end of 2014, Giant Landover operated 170 supermarkets.
