Giant Food is opening a new 82,000-square-foot e-commerce fulfillment center in Manassas, Virginia.
The new Giant Delivers facility will make home and business delivery possible for thousands of new customers in over 140 zip codes across northern Virginia, the grocer said in a press release.
Enhancing service to existing customers throughout the area, the new facility will also offer expanded convenience, including same-day delivery in as little as three hours and free midweek delivery.
“We are continually looking for ways to better serve our communities and customers. This investment in our newest facility helps us reach even more people with even more convenience,” said Gregg Dorazio, Director of E-Commerce at Giant Food.

“By shopping and delivering your orders for no fee between Tuesday-Thursday, and for just $3.95 on weekends, we’re truly living up to our promise to be a one-stop shop, giving customers affordable options to shop so they can get back to the moments that matter the most,” Dorazio added.
The Manassas facility will feature the company’s latest batch-picking software and an extensive conveyor system that will increase the speed of the shop to enable faster, more frequent delivery options.
This is the second e-commerce fulfillment center for Giant Food. Its existing Hanover, Md. facility will continue servicing Giant Delivers customers across its local markets.
