Giant Food Helps Customers Save Money This Thanksgiving

Grocer Offers Competitor Price Matching on Turkeys and In-Store Promotions

LANDOVER, Md. (November 20, 2014)–Giant Food of Landover, Md. is guaranteeing customers the best price on turkeys this holiday season by matching any competitor’s advertised price. Giant is also offering low prices on store-brand turkeys at $0.99 per pound for fresh turkeys and $0.59 for frozen turkeys. This, combined with Giant’s new price reductions on thousands of top items, means the best value for customers preparing Thanksgiving meals.

“Giant is committed to helping customers save money all year, including during the holiday season,” said Dean Wilkinson, vice president of sales and merchandising at Giant Food. “We are pleased to offer competitor price-matching and low prices on turkeys to deliver the maximum value for shoppers as they prepare their Thanksgiving celebrations.”

All Giant Food locations will be open on Thanksgiving Day until 6 p.m., with in-store pharmacies open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. For a limited time, customers can also earn 4X gas rewards points on gift card purchases made with their Giant cards between November 21 and November 27.

In addition to helping customers save money, Giant is providing Thanksgiving meals for community members in need by donating 1,000 turkeys each to five Feeding America food banks across the Mid-Atlantic region: the Food Bank of Delaware, the Maryland Food Bank, the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, and the Capital Area Food Bank. The 5,000 turkeys will help feed thousands in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.
