Baltimore’s grocery store merry-go-round continues.
Two Fresh & Green’s grocery stores that opened in former Superfresh locations last year after that market closed are being converted to Giant Food stores, the Landover-based grocery announced Friday.
Giant last week signed an agreement with Mrs. Green’s Management Corp. to acquire the company’s supermarket locations in Hampden, at 1020 W. 41st St., and in Parkville, at 7709 Harford Road.
The 125 total employees from both stores will be offered jobs with Giant Food, the company announced.
The Hampden location will replace the Giant Food store located in the Rotunda, Giant officials said.
Both stores will be closed while renovations are made.
“Giant Food is excited about the opportunity to remodel and open two convenient locations for Baltimore-area customers,” said Anthony Hucker, president of Giant’s Landover division. “We look forward to making significant improvements to the stores and to offering our unique combination of quality, value and service, which customers have come to expect from Giant for more than seven decades.”
Giant Food has 11 locations in the city and Baltimore County metropolitan area.
Matt Williams, CEO of Fresh & Green’s in Maryland, said the chain will continue to operate its other locations.
“All of our remaining stores in Maryland have — and will continue to operate — with a renewed emphasis on improving the overall shopping experience,” Williams said in a statement. “As we look ahead, we will continue to grow our presence, create jobs and invest further in the region to serve more Maryland families.”
