Giant, a supermarket chain headquartered in Carlisle, announced today it has entered into an agreement to purchase 16 Genuardi’s stores in the Greater Philadelphia region.
The Genuardi’s in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center is slated to be included in this $106 million transaction. Other stores include Genuardi’s in Langhorne, Jamison, Chalfont and West Chester.
Giant said it expects the deal to close within the first half of this year.

We look forward to providing customers with the quality, selection, and savings that they have come to expect from Giant.”
