Eight Giant Food grocery stores in the region are slated for potential sale as the result of a merger between Ahold and Delhaize, the European-based parent companies of Giant Food and Food Lion.
Hundreds of jobs and the future of our community is at stake. We can’t let a corporate merger in Europe take away good jobs and quality shopping options here at home. Join us for a rally and march to Giant Food Headquarters to preserve good jobs!

Since launching the #SaveMyStore campaign, our petition to Ahold/Delhaize has steadily gathered thousands of signatures. On May 11, we’ll deliver our petition directly to Giant Food headquarters.
We demand answers. So far, representatives of Ahold and Giant Food have refused to answer our questions. We’ve invited them to our town halls, but we’ve only been met with radio silence.
We demand to know the future of our stores, our jobs, and our communities. Join us on May 11 to make our voices heard!
About the #SaveMyStore campaign:
On Tuesday, March 15, employees at eight area Giant Food stores were informed that their stores may be sold due to a corporate merger. Less than a week after hearing the news, welaunched the #SaveMyStore campaign to bring together Giant employees, union members, and the communities we serve to save these stores.
In a matter of weeks, we have already collected thousands of signatures on a petition to preserve the quality shopping, good jobs, and excellent customer service that we have come to expect from our local Giant grocery stores.
We’ve also hosted a series of town hall meetings to bring together Giant Food employees, elected officials, community leaders, customers, friends and neighbors. With so many jobs at stake, together we will do whatever it takes to keep our communities intact.
