Giant Food Stores will open its third Giant Heirloom Market store in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia on Friday, Nov. 15 at 8 a.m. The two-level 13,000-square-foot urban-focused location, at 1002 North Second Street, will feature an underground taproom and gaming area – a first for the grocer.

“Much like Philadelphia’s story continues to unfold, so does the story of Giant Heirloom Market, and our new store in Northern Liberties is the next exciting chapter,” noted Giant Food Stores President Nicholas Bertram. “We continue to learn, and our new location will bring new innovations while featuring what customers love most about Giant Heirloom Market – fresh produce, locally made products and our Nature’s Promise brand.”

Grocery veteran Tommy McClain, who played a key role in the opening of the first two Giant Heirloom Market locations in the Graduate Hospital and University City communities, has been named manager of the Northern Liberties stores.

“Northern Liberties is always buzzing with activity, and that’s especially true at the corner of North Second and Wildey Streets as we get ready to open the doors to our newest Giant Heirloom Market next month, just in time for the holiday season,” said McClain, who joined the company in 2016. “We’re looking forward to getting to know our new neighbors, introducing them to all that Giant Heirloom Market has to offer and serving families in Northern Liberties.”
