Giant Food announced earlier this week that it would close the Upper Gwynedd, PA location it purchased from Safeway (Genuardi's) in 2012. The associated pharmacy, located less than a mile away in North Wales, will close as well. Both closings are planned for January 24.
Giant purchased 16 area stores from Safeway in 2012. At 33,000 square feet, the Upper Gwynedd store is one of the smallest in the Giant chain. According to the company, all employees will be offered positions at nearby stores.
