Ahold to Upgrade 100 Giant-Landover Stores

AMSTERDAM -- Ahold said yesterday it would roll out a major three-year store-remodeling program to remodel or replace about 100 Giant Food supermarkets in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. The initiative, dubbed "Project Refresh," will be the retail conglomerate's largest investment in the banner since acquiring it in 1998.

"The remodeling program underscores our commitment to continuing to be the supermarket of choice in these markets," noted Stop & Shop/Giant-Landover president and c.e.o. Jos* Alvarez in a statement.

"Project Refresh" will enhance Giant's perishable food sections and modernize locations to boost shopper convenience. The banner expects to keep its existing stores open throughout the revamps.

Landover, Md.-based Giant Food, LLC operates 185 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and Washington D.C., and employs about 21,000 associates.
