Giant Food Stores Marks Opening of 100th Fuel Station
Giant Food Stores LLC’s 100th fuel station will open for business on Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m., in Bethlehem, Pa.
“Opening our 100th fuel station is an important milestone in our growth strategy as we continue to expand our offerings and give our customers more ways to connect with the Giant brand,” said Kurt Hoeflein, the Bethlehem store manager. “For our Bethlehem-area customers, this new fuel station provides added convenience and another place to save at the pump with our popular Gas Extra Rewards program.”
Under the program, for every $100 spent on grocery and pharmacy out-of-pocket expenses at any Giant Food Store using a BonusCard, customers get 10 cents off per gallon of gas when they fill up. Rewards earned in one month must be redeemed by the end of the following month.
To celebrate the opening, Giant is donating $1,000 to Friends of Johnston, an all-volunteer charitable nonprofit dedicated to the preservation, restoration and sustainable adaptive reuse of the Estate of the first Mayor of Bethlehem. The grocer’s associates have also taken part in an outdoor service project with the organization, which included the planting of 200 trees.
The new fuel station has a total of eight pumps, each with a Pay-at-the-Pump feature, and diesel fuel is also available. Giant gift cards can be redeemed at the grocer's fuel sites as well.
Plus, every time a customer fills up at a Giant fuel location, a portion of the money spent goes to the grocer’s reduced-emissions program in partnership with Atlanta-based GreenPrint. The initiative gives back proportionally to local communities through environmental projects such as planting trees while investing in carbon reductions projects like reforestation and solar power.
Carlisle, Pa.-based Giant Food Stores operates nearly 180 stores, 132 pharmacies, 99 fuel stations, and online grocery ordering and delivery services across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, employing more than 30,000 associates.
