Giant Food of Landover, Md. today announced that it will renovate its Eagle Village Shopping Center store beginning this fall. The store, which will remain open during renovations, is located at 1245 Jefferson Davis Highway in Fredericksburg, Va. This major renovation will provide shoppers with a more contemporary shopping experience through upgraded store amenities and expanded food departments.
“Giant opened the Eagle Village store in 1963 and we are proud to have been a part of the Fredericksburg community ever since,” said Gordon Reid, president, Giant Food of Landover, Md. “We want to provide our customers with the best shopping experience possible and we are confident that everyone will love this new, updated store once completed.”
The renovated Eagle Village Giant will offer a newly designed market-style produce section featuring the freshest fruits and vegetables, including an expanded selection of organic produce. Shoppers will also find a new natural food department with offerings of natural and organic foods, including Giant’s own Nature’s Promise products, in addition to a new frozen natural food section. The domestic and international wine selections will be expanded to accommodate all tastes and budgets, as well as a wide assortment of craft, domestic and imported beer. Throughout the entire store, shoppers will find new interior decor and shelving. The updated store will also include a new Check It! Zone with six self-checkouts along with six mainline registers to make customers’ shopping experience time-saving and convenient. In addition, the renovated store will include a new full-service solution center to provide shoppers with even greater customer service.
“We take great pride in our partnership with Giant Food and Ahold USA, and look forward to offering the public a new and refreshed shopping experience at Eagle Village for generations to come,” said Jeff Rountree, chief executive officer for the UMW Foundation and president of Eagle Property Holdings, LLC.
Rountree said that working with Giant Food on a complete renovation of the store has been a goal since the Foundation purchased the old Park & Shop in 2007.
“We always knew that Giant would play a major role in the revitalization of what is now Eagle Village and for the broader urban renewal we all seek along the U.S. 1 corridor,” said Rountree.
