Giant Food Stores, LLC is an American supermarket chain that operates stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. The chain operates under the Giant and Martin's banners. Giant is a subsidiary of Netherlands-based Ahold Delhaize, which also owns similarly-named Giant Food of Landover, Maryland, often known as Giant-Landover; to distinguish from that chain, whose stores also operate under the Giant banner (albeit with a different logo), Giant Food Stores are often referred to as Giant-Carlisle or Giant/Martin's. A significant difference between the two chains is that Giant-Landover is unionized while Giant-Carlisle is non-union, with the exception of stores in Lewistown and Burnham, Pennsylvania.
Since 1930, Publix has grown from a single store into the largest employee-owned grocery chain in the United States. We are thankful for our customers and associates and continue remaining deeply dedicated to customer service and community involvement, and being a great place to work and shop. Currently, we are not able to service customers outside of the United States, and our site is not fully available internationally. (Our apologies!) But, the next time you travel to Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, or Virginia—make sure you visit the store “where shopping is a pleasure” during your stay. Upon your arrival, you may plan your grocery trips, find weekly savings, and even order select products online at www.publix.com.
In 1958, Joe Coulombe took over a small chain of convenience stores around the LA area. These were called Pronto Markets. The whole idea was fast. Pronto – quick, right? And they were convenience stores, before we really even know what convenience stores were. The kind of place where you could get anything from, say, a pack of gum to some pantyhose.
