The GIANT Company has officially opened its fourth GIANT Heirloom Market at 801 Market Street at the Fashion District Philadelphia in Center City.
This store is the largest GIANT Heirloom Market to date with 32,000 square feet of shopping space. Located in the historic 1928 building that housed Philadelphia’s iconic Strawbridge & Clothier department store, The GIANT Company has restored and maintained many interior design elements, including decorative trim, chandelier lighting, signage, and the famous “Il Porcellino,” the former Strawbridge’s wild boar statue.
The store, located at 801 Market Street, is accessible from inside the mall as well as Market Street and features local produce, large plant-based and gluten-free sections, a self-serve tap wall with more than 30 selections, a Starbucks, and a Hissho sushi bar. The market will be open from 7 AM to 10 PM daily.
A grand opening ribbon-cutting was held with remarks by The GIANT Company president Nicholas Bertram, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, and Councilman Mark Squilla.
A $9,500 donation was made to local Fashion District community organizations.
