Giant has agreed to do the right thing and NOT SELL ANY of our Giant stores!
The marches, rallies, press conferences, and meetings have paid off! All 8 of the stores (6 in Virginia and 2 in Maryland) that had been proposed for sale will remain Giant, pending Federal Trade Commission approval which is expected by the end of July. The Giant store in Salisbury, MD, represented by UFCW Local 27, will be sold to ACME, a division of Albertsons, and will remain union.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this possible. More information will follow as we have it!
