  1. I was injuried in a Giant food store, Maryland. A customer service employee responded to my aide, wrote down my contact information and advised that she would forwarded it to the appropriate people. No one has contacted me yet. It has been more than a week. I called HQ's and spoke with someone who informed me that my information was not in the system. This person took my information again and advised that someone would call. No one has called. I called her back today only to be placed on hold for 10 minutes, until I was disconnected. Is this how Giant food value their customers? No apology, compensation, or anything? Not good...

    2. To the person who was injured. Did you see the store manager at the time of the incident? Have you called the store manager since? You need to place the call to the store where your injure took place and have all of your information. Date and time of the incident and what happened. A manager at the store should be able to assist you and will take down your complaint.

    3. Giant has no customer service. I had a delivery from Peapod January 6,2020 with a number of missing items and two wrong items. Sent a number of emails with no reply. Contacted my credit card and they put a hold of $25.91 on Giant's order of $225.00 Because of this dispute of $25.91, Giant has closed my acct until I pay them the $25.91 which they OWE ME! How rude! So petty of a large company.

    4. Anonymous: Yeah, you need to follow up with store manager, if no success. Get an attorney and document everything. I drive for them, do you know what they have done to protect the drivers through this Wuhan Virus? Nothing. We go into some of the most heavily infected areas of Pa and all I suggested was the driver should stay in truck, let the store pull the freight off the truck. I call the manager when I bump the dock to inform them I am at their dock. They in turn open doors and the unload process begins. Store Manager assists as well as other store personnel. I pull freight off and place a few feet from trailer using electronic jack. Grocery stores are bad places during this time. Sick people shop too! They touch products and put them down, store personnel handle same products. Our primary job is to get the product to the store, stock personnel cannot do that. Giant does not care to "do what they can to protect their drivers" It's just business as usual. Nobody in the corporation seems to have any creativity in their thinking. I have not worked for them since this started and won't until they take steps to protect the drivers. All Giant has said is we have stuff in trucks for drivers to wipe down vehicle. Funny though, because I have been in trucking for 25 plus years, I always have stuff to sterilize the tractor after someone else has used it. Any good trucker knows you need to wipe down the rig you use before you start the shift. We need to limit contact with other people who may be exposed to virus and Giant employees in the stores are at an increased risk! Why increase the risk to drivers!

    1. I couldnt agree with you more. I went into Giant recently and have been harrassed by a manager. This is the second incident that happened at that particular store.. I am a disabled person who suffers from PTSD and spend lots of money there. They are sure quick to take the money. They also refuse to take returns when u have the receipt. I have never felt so uncomfortable in a store. I have contacted the presiden'ts assisitant and filed a complaint and they still don't get back to you. Good luck and thanks for sharing

  3. I enjoy the stores, but I do have a suggestion ... there is no reason to have music playing ... most of the singers have a High C, and it is irritating. There was a time Musak ... channeled music into businesses as a way to have customers enjoy the music, buy more. If that was the research, then, it certainly isn't current. I'd suggest Giant stop playing that music ... and I might add .. classical music is soothing ... but to have hype music screaming at you while you enter the store ... just gives me a headache, and I really don't want to stay. People are busy, some tired ... this so called music screaming at you ... isn't pleasant. Thank you.

    2. To the music hater... Musak? Really? How boring are you. The music is fine its just repetitive. I do grow tired of hearing every song on the Breakfast Club soundtrack. If I had my way, it would be Lamb of God and Slayer all day long!!!

  4. I received the WORST service yesterday in the Giant Food store located at 3602 Millford Mill Road, Windsor Mill, MD. One Manager by the name of Greg had no clue about the proper way to ring up a gift card. He call the store manager Gloria Richardson to assist and she was even worse. She told him to get on the phone and call someone else and she disappeared before we could figure this out. Needless to say I ended up calling Amex Express and VOIDING all transactions which totaled $765 and took my business elsewhere!. I didn't think that stores walked away from that amount of money so easily however the employees at this store don't have a clue about GREAT customer service. You keep letting these folks run your store and you will continue to lose money!!!

  5. Dear Giant Eagle ...Recently, I have been an avid shopper at Giant Eagle on Wilmington Road in New Castle, Pa. for over 20 years I have NEVER had a complaint until recently. The store has went through a massive change and NOTHING is where it used to be, and of course, all the prices went up. The biggest problem I have had recently is this Fancy Feast Cat Food went on sale...THE SIGN READ ... BUY 32 CANS AT 55 CENTS GET 8 FREE... SO I ADD 32 CANS BY 55 CENTS AND GOT 17.60 BUT THE SIGN SAID 22$ SO I MULTIPLIED 55 CENTS BY 40 AND LOW AND BEHOLD IT CAME TO 22$ So, I went to the service desk and said...your sign reads IF YOU BUY 32 CANS FOR 55 CENTS YOU GET 8 FREE, BUT IF YOU MULTIPLY 55 BY 40 YOU GET 22$ SO WHERE IS THE 8 FREE CANS? So, the woman says "Well, they are 70 cents otherwise..and I said...that's not what I'm asking where is the 8 free cans? and she said... well, if you add the cans up it comes to 22 because you are paying 55 cents a can... once again I said that's not what I'm asking ..your sign says...IF YOU BUY 32 CANS YOU GET 8 FREE....IT DOES NOT SAY IF YOU BUY 40 CANS AT 55 CENTS ITS "LIKE" GETTING 8 FREE...IT SAYS YOU GET 8 FREE... so round and round we go...to the point I politely, took all the cans back to the shelf and didn't buy them because NOTHING IRKS ME MORE THEN FALSE ADVERTISEMENT.... and I do NOT need to be talked to like I am an idiot and don't know how to multiply ...so, now I am choosing to shop selectively at Giant Eagle and doing the main shopping somewhere else. My last words to the woman in charge of the 'SALES" WAS THIS....IN THE FUTURE I WOULD ADD THESE WORDS TO MY AD..... IT'S LIKE GETTING 8 CANS FREE...OTHERWISE YOU ARE FALSE ADVERTISING.... I know business I was at one point the Regional Manager of The Atlanta Business Journal in Atlanta, Ga. but I was in a near fatal collision and suffered a broken back in 10 places along with knee problems... but, I had enough suffering in my life I do not need to be spoken to like I don't know how to read or multiply. Anyway, you should truly look over your ads and put it down correctly avoiding any misunderstanding in the future.

  8. I tried contacting an corporate CEO of Giant. I live in Florida now i used to live in Baltimore County MD. May i suggest if Giant passes on my idea on Mergering with Publix Super Markets, Inc. Giant has the best customer service and plus they have tech advanced self checkout counters plus Deli kiosk you can express your order without waiting for your deli. But Publix does not have an self checkout nor they don't have kiosk at Deli dept. They keep you waiting inline wont open another checkout counter. Sometimes Publix can be crowded and i wait for 10- 15 minutes to checkout. Publix has over 1100 stores are located in Florida,Georgia,Alabama,South Carolina,Tennessee and in North Carolina. Can you imagine if Giant has this Merger? Man they would become a Giant all over the east atlantic coast. I Pray someday corperate takeover of Publix and i can have my favorite store again.

  9. I have shopped in Publix and in Giant. Publix is better.

    1. check your own lottery tickets and do not give the cashier your tickets. I went into the Brookhaven store yesterday and an elderly woman gave her instant lottery ticket to the cashier to check to see if it was a winner. The elderly women said she won $ 20.00 and the cashier said no it pays out only $ 6.00. The elderly women check her games and said no it only paid out $ 6.00. So I said to the elderly women let me see your lottery ticket , So I could check the ticket to see if she was wrong. When I said that I want to check the instant ticket to see who was wrong the cashier snatch the lottery ticket out of the elderly women hand so I couldn't check it, I think the employee,s maybe stealing lottery winnings from customers. Please everyone check your own lottery tickets, there is a scanner on the counter top thatyou can check your own tickets.

  10. I live in Bethesda area and have access to several Giant stores; the one in Westwood (off River Rd.)is absolutely horrifying! It is very badly managed and they do not seem to care much about their customers. Often, they do not have any "express" line for people who only buy a few items; and, when they do have one, anyone, even with full carts, is accepted, while orderlies or women with small kids and just a couple items should wait a long time for their turn!... Everybody in my neighborhood is complaining about this lack of consideration from the management, and for not enforcing their own rules!

  16. I shop at the Giant in Middletown, Pa.and today 09/28/2016 I was there shopping in the early morning. When I was ready to check out I sawbthere were only 2 cashiers on registers and the lines backed up an all customers had mainly big orders..as I wait inline I also notice there are no baggers to help the only 2 cashiers working. The 2 cashiers were working as fast as they could having to do both ring up the merchandise plus bag it.Then I notice the checkout coach standing at the service center with her back towards cashiers and she was laughing an carrying on with the 2 girls behind the services desk.I see this a lot at this Giant an ask myself are they really getting paid to stand around an do nothing while the cashiers are busy doing both jobs. As a ex checkout coach of this store if I were caught standing around carrying on and not helping bag or run register I would be reprimanded. After about 20 mins.or so the checkout coach finally got on register to help. This appears to be an on going problem at this giant along with lack of cashiers an baggers. The girls that were just standing around doing nothing should have helping bag for their cashiers. I am seriously considering taking my business elsewhere should this problem continue. I hope to see improvement in this matter or I will continue to send complaints about this issue.

  18. I have been an avid shopper at Giant stores in Montgomery County, MD, for over 40 years, but after my last shopping trip, I resolved never to shop at your stores again. As another customer commented, the stores have gone through massive changes. They are designed to manipulate the buyer more than ever before.

    Stock is often moved from one aisle to another in illogical ways; brands are being switched out and replaced with multiple competing brands I have never heard of. After this many years, I know what I like. Brands I have selected as substitutes are NOT satisfying. Beefsteak Hearty Rye and Celestial Seasonings Morning Thunder were both discontinued by their manufacturers, and due to customer demand, were reissued. Can I find them in any of the stores local to me? NO. Other favorites are no longer offered, either.

    See ya.

    2. Be sure you got your coupon discounts taken off. Giants in the Carlisle, Camp Hill PA area have machines that are incapable of reading coupons. I quit using the self checkouts. It was embarrassing getting disbelieving and irritated looks from the check out person when the machines said I didn't drop my coupon in the coupon slot, and I had no proof that I did it.
      So I go to the other check outs when I have coupons, and clog up the lines when the more alert employees notice their machines didn't give me my coupon discounts, and battle with the machines and get help from others to get my discount. At least they can't think I'm lying about giving them the coupon.

  20. During the course of a few weeks, I was at your pharmacy counter (Store 0354) twice and coincidentally dealt with the same technician -- Daniel Shields -- on both occasions. I have worked in large, demanding corporate offices for many years and can't remember the last time I was so impressed with an associate at ANY store. He was efficient, pleasant, communicative and helpful in every way. Actually, the entire pharmacy team seemed to be outstanding. As I was later leaving the store, I happened to pass Mr. Shields in an aisle -- he recognized me, remembered me and said "have a good day, Ms. Donohue." Now THAT'S customer service! Thanks for a memorable experience. I'll be repeating this story to friends and neighbors alike! Please pass along my appreciation to Mr. Shields.

  22. I am copying Nextdoor comments about the Giant on 66oo Richmond Hwy as I thought headquarters should be aware of this. I personally, haven't had a problem and don't want to lose the store due to unhappy customer comments below:

    Expired food at Giant

    Howdy all, I’ve wanted to get input about the Giant off route 1 in hybla valley. It’s only a 5 min drive for me so if I’m in a pinch I’ll buy food there but I’m tired of seeing expired food on the shelves and freezer. Maybe because it’s gluten free items most of the time but I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this too and what could we do to get it improved? I’m going to be returning some food today and plan to show them the other items I saw expired by months still on the shelves. The only place I trust to shop these days is wegmans! Anyone else have better luck elsewhere?
    Thanks

    I used to love giant.
    Last time I bought a mini hen that wasn’t expired and my baby got poisoned. Literally never again , not the first time meat is a bad quality.
    Time before that, bought a steak , had to throw it away because the smell was awful.
    We go to Wegmans now

    I shop at that Giant quite a bit and have only found expired items a handful of times. I would call their customer service line at 888-469-4426. They are incredibly responsive! The few times I've contacted them (never regarding expired food), I've received a phone call from the store manager within hours and been offered a Giant gift card and a promise that the incident wouldn't happen again. Although the store employees may blow you off, a call to the main customer service number will get attention.

    An awful lot of these grocery stores are so short-staffed, it's a wonder that there aren't more incidences of expired items, etc. Wegman's seems to be well-staffed, at least in comparison to other grocers.

    The only problem that i have with Giant is their seafood. I stopped find seafood there because it was always spoiled. By spoiled I mean it had the foul, fishy smell that indicates the food has gone bad.

    The Safeway that closed down was a wreck inside with expired food too. I'll be going back to giant and show them what I saw that needed to be gone. Just saw we bought ice cream that expired back in November and the hubby just bought it last week.

    I stopped going there when we bought expired pudding, did not know it was until feeding it to my then 13 month old. He gave us the strangest face, we thought it was due to it being sugar free. Nope it was 5 months expired. Went up there to explain the situation and how it was handled, I'll never ever go back.

  24. When are you going to implement the non-smoking rule again? As a former employee of Giant, it was beaten into everyone's head that smoking by any employees anywhere around the store entrance would lead to automatic termination. I was told that employees who want to smoke must sit in their cars and they must be parked beyond the first row of cart barns. Weekly, I see employees standing at the emtryway, standing in the parking lot, or even standing in the store smoking. Terminates these bastards immediately!!!

  25. Ever since they put new scanners in our Martin's in Winchester you have to run your card thru numerous times and the chip almost never takes, sometimes you have to go thru the process two or three times and it often takes several minutes, particularly if it hangs up and you have to wait for a rep. Nothin' wrong with the cards as they work everywhere else w/o any issues.

    So I'm going to stop shopping there until I get a personal note from my contact with Giant that they've corrected the issue. I'll shop at Wegmans now.

  26. This is for the giant in morrisville pa, my boyfriend went into this store 2 times with.no luck of being able to talk to " vickie" the hiring recruiter , the first time he was told that the questionnaire he filled out had some red flags ? So he was informed that in 30 days fill it out again , as he did so a few days went by he still heard nothing so he went there to possibly talk to someone to speed up the process , he found the manager shawn who he explained the situation to and was told to wait and he will check on the application , my boyfriend waited for 25 mins then someone at the help desk asked him if he was being helped he told her he was waited for shawn , the girl gave him a puzzled look and said shawn had left for the day ..... he asked if there was anyone else he could speak to about his application she said talk to vickie , the customer service girl contacted vickie who was upstairs and while talking to vickie covered her mouth while snickering and hung up then she told my boyfriend he has to wait to be contacted ...... I am sure these pieces of shit are making a decent amount of money and still cant do there jobs . Yet my boyfriend who dodnt want to work there would have and they wont contact him .... just a typical example of today's trash that is employed and I'm sure this will fall on deft ears but something should be done about shawn and vickie they are setting a horrible example

  27. This complaint is for the giant store in morrisville pa . My boyfriend applied for a job there in december , he was told that with the questionnaire on the application he answered something that sent up a red flag and was kinda told he rushed through it and that happens and was told to apply again in 30 days so he did so here we are in January he applied again and still didnt hear anything so he went to the store AGAIN! he was speaking to the manager shawn or Sean whatever , and explained the situation the him and shawn said ok " wait here " so my boyfriend waited for about 25 to 30 mins and was approached again by someone else who asked him if he needed help my boyfriend said he was waiting for shawn , the girl looked puzzled and said shawn left for the day ...... so he explained the situation to this customer service person who told him he had to talk to Jackie , she called Jackie who was upstairs in the office and while she was on the phone with Jackie she covered her mouth to say something on the phone so my boyfriend couldn't see and snickered on the phone and hung up , then told my boyfriend he had to wait till jackie contacted him...... this was so unprofessional on many levels people in a position of authority need to lead by example , situations like this make me realise why I refuse to shop at this location i was given such nasty attitude while at the register almost refused service because I didnt have a rewards card then I had to ask the woman if I could sign up so I could purchase my stuff and she was so annoyed , this was a couple years ago but I see they keep hiring some real winners at this location . I strongly suggest something is done about the management and hiring recruiter before you lose some serious business .

  28. I think it is time for Giant Food stores Managers to put a limit on how many items an individual can buy like toilet paper, Tissues paper towels bread can vegetables etc!!!!! All the other stores are doing this because of the product hoarders!!!!! Walmart and Target are two of them who limit purchases!!!!

  29. this is an suggestion for the situation we are in with the covid-19 panoramic, the stores are letting so many people in and following the arrows for social distancing which I think is great. This is causing long lines for check out which means people are standing for a while. The suggestion I have is keep the store open for people 55 and older and anyone under 55 should use martins direct. I know the staffing might not be there but , the stores can cross train the cashiers and other people from different departments to learn how to be a personal shopper. If this can be done more time slots can be open for pick up instead of two weeks out for any grocery pick up. That is the estimated time the stores in Hagerstown Maryland is giving for direct. I believe if the company would do this it will help with social distancing and protect the employees of Giant Food . We are seeing across the country that there has been a few death of grocery store workers .If Giant would put this in effect I believe other stores will follow suit, to help keep the virus under control.

  30. My husband just returned from a shopping trip to the Giant store in Burnham. It will be the last trip anyone in this family makes to that store. Your employees need to be told that they are not God, nor do they have any type of police powers. No less than three employees were extremely rude. My husband was told first as soon as he walked in the door that he was too close to the employee disinfecting carts. There was not enough space in the entryway to maintain a six foot distance. Also, the arrows telling you which way to go up and down the aisles are a little ridiculous. Also you had better teach your cashiers how to measure distance. My husband was a minimum of 12 feet away from a cashier, and was told by said cashier in a very rude manner that he must back up to a distance of six feet and stay behind the yellow line. He would have had to move forward to even get to the yellow line. If your employees are that afraid of being in public, maybe they shouldn't be working. Also, you may want to consider classes for your employees regarding harrassment.

  31. By mistake I purchased two bags of Dunkin' Donuts coffee. By mistake I picked up "whole bean coffee" instead of ground coffee. When I took the UNOPENDED packages back for an exchange, the checkout girl would not take the coffee back. UNOPENDED!! There are quite a few very nice groceries need me; needless to say I will not shop at Giant (locally or anywhere else) again.

  32. Hello, I was at your store in Harrisburg today, store #6539. There was a young man cashier, his name is Addison, and I would like to comment about how kind, considerate, pleasant and efficient he was. In these crazy times the cashiers are stressed to the limit and customers are frustrated. It made our day when we were kindly directed and got this young man. What a nice experience we had with him. He's young, I don't know how long he's been there but that doesn't matter, what matters is the way he treated us with kindness and not frustration or stress. You should be glad he works for your company. Thank You! Stay Safe!

  33. I received my Giant food flyer this week and was taken back by the ad to shop there in support of PRIDE month of June. It baffles me why this corporation should stoop to such a level utilizing a political theme to increase their sales. Unless corporate wants to also recognize other important "sectors of society" I suggest including perhaps a "straight" month, anti-abortion month, homeless month, various religious months, etc. I will NO LONGER be shopping at Giant. You are "drinking the poison" of the radical sector of society. SHAMEFUL!!!

  34. The Giant Grocery on Crain Highway in Upper Marlboro, MD has removed the directional arrows on the floors of the isles and also has removed the 6' social distancing markers from the floors. Could please re-install these markers? The COVID 19 is still in our midst. While it is in your prerogative whether or not to re-install the markers, our family will seek other options if you don't. We do not harbor an animosity against the Giant Grocery. We hope you understand that the safety of our family is a top priority. Thanks

  35. I am writing to complain about the new parking spots reserved to pick up on-line orders. For the 15 years I have lived in Lake Ridge your store has been, as your no longer used slogan said, “my Giant.” I am the type of shopper who goes to the grocery nearly every day and spends $30-$50 dollars per visit. I can be an impromptu shopper as I often get things not on my list. My wife and I are in our 70s so it is not easy for us to walk, much less push a basket, up the incline of your parking lot. Yet you have designated several of the best and closest spots to the store’s entrance for online pick up. You have chosen the exact wrong parking spots for this service. You should choose the furthest parking spots for this service. Here is how your online delivery should work in 5 easy and sensible steps.
    1. Customer arrives and parks in a place at the far end of parking lot (like Home Depot).
    2. As the current sign directs – customer calls store staff to say they are ready to pick up order.
    3. Staff gets the order and calls customer.
    4. Customer drives to spot on the curb (NOT where they block front door ramps/entrances). Hedges Run Giant has perfect spot where staff sits during breaks.
    5. Staff puts groceries into car.
    Here is another dumb thing your store has done recently. Store designer must have been the same guy who designed parking places because Hedges Run has no aisles 1 and 2. Please know that I have been watching these parking spots when I do go. All but 3 times all spots were empty. I’ve never seen more than two cars in the six spots. Only twice was there a person in the car. Lastly, your new parking arrangement has prompted me to get a Safeway Club card.

  36. I am writing to complain about the new parking spots reserved to pick up on-line orders. For the 15 years I have lived in Lake Ridge your store has been, as your no longer used slogan said, “my Giant.” I am the type of shopper who goes to the grocery nearly every day and spends $30-$50 dollars per visit. I can be an impromptu shopper as I often get things not on my list. My wife and I are in our 70s so it is not easy for us to walk, much less push a basket, up the incline of your parking lot. Yet you have designated several of the best and closest spots to the store’s entrance for online pick up. You have chosen the exact wrong parking spots for this service. You should choose the furthest parking spots for this service. Here is how your online delivery should work in 5 easy and sensible steps.
    1. Customer arrives and parks in a place at the far end of parking lot (like Home Depot).
    2. As the current sign directs – customer calls store staff to say they are ready to pick up order.
    3. Staff gets the order and calls customer.
    4. Customer drives to spot on the curb (NOT where they block front door ramps/entrances). Hedges Run Giant has perfect spot where staff sits during breaks.
    5. Staff puts groceries into car.

  37. Hi I am on food stamps and with Covid 19 and I find it hard to get to the store. Other places I know accepts food stamps for delivery service. Why can't Giant? I know more people would use Giant if you did. I live in Lancaster Pa.

  38. Good afternoon,

    I understand that you did away with the Giant AAA rewards program. I understand Giant not being able to fund the schools. However I feel that you should be able to incorporate a round up program like you currently have to raise money for the food bank. People could have a choice of what school or charity each time they shop that they would like to round up to. Our school depended on that $ for PTO programs. Regards, Melissa G.

  39. Why is it that the new Giant Food Store in Broomall closes its cashiers 1 hour before closing time. I shop at night and purchase a lot of groceries and am forced to check out in the self serve checkout line while the cashiers sit there and watch. Is this a ploy to get overtime? Definitely makes me think twice before I shop at Giant. This is an ongoing problem. I ask the manager and gives you the dumb look like he doesn't care.

  40. Giant at Kline Plaza is close so that's where I usually go but the recent moving around of merchandise is terrible. I was used to where things were and I could go in, grab my needed items and check out. Now I have no idea where things are. This new layout just makes no sense to me, things seem to be just helter skelter. I'll be looking for a new place for groceries now.

  41. I would like to bring to your attention an incident that took place this afternoon at the Giant Supermarket in Warrenton, Virginia, on Lee Hwy and Blackwell Rd. I went in to retrieve a Western Union. I gave my military Identification card, and the lady identified herself as the front counter manager. She refused to give me the transfer, stating I needed an ID, with my address on it. The least, she was not nice or correct, as I left and I called Western Union to verify if the rules had changed.
    Well, they have not. I am a Desert Storm United States Air Force Veteran, and a resident of Warrenton, Virginia. For the last year and a half when I lived in Alexandria, before buying my house in Warrenton. I will return to the store on 2/7/2021 to ask for the written Western Union policy that is clearly different from any other western union. Her attitude was not customer service worthy!

  42. I don't know what's wrong with the people at giant foods (or people in general) but why in the world would you politicise and racialize food? FOOD ! I rarely shop at a giant store but if i find myself in one I know what products I WILL NOT be buying. As a business decision that's one of the stupidest ones they could have made and frankly ignorant to make shopping about race

  43. When my wife and I first moved to the York, PA area we used the Giant grocery store almost exclusively. In the last 14 years of residing here a couple of Aldis, a Lidl, and a few other grocery store chains have opened up. And thank God for that. I have seen the prices soar at the Giant stores and customer service is almost non-existent. There used to be a product locator within the store where we shop, but no longer. So if you can't locate an item you then have to find someone stocking shelves and that's a rarity during normal business hours. So you have no choice but to stand in the customer service (an oxymoron to say the least @ Giant) line only to have some teenager who has no clue what they're doing look up the item you are trying to find. They'll pull up the product but then they can't tell you which isle the item is in. Defeats the whole purpose. A product locator would be a novel idea, but that probably makes too much sense. Besides the substandard customer service the thing that irks me the most is the price of Giant's produce. We get our produce which is much fresher at Aldi for less than half of what you pay at Giant. And if you do buy any produce at Giant it really doesn't taste good. So bottom line is that we will not frequent Giant unless we're in a real pinch. We'd rather shop at a grocery store that values their employees, has better produce, and better prices. My wife and I have spoken to many of the employees over the years and if I'm lying, I'm dying; not a single person had anything good to say about working at Giant. Their high attrition rate is proof that Giant is not a good place to find employment. Ok, I'm finished with my diatribe.

  44. The people you hire and place at self check out are stealing credit card numbers and using them. We have been hacked and the people that are being hired are very suspicious. Doylestown Pennsylvania.

  45. I live in Red Lion, PA and frequent that particular Giant. Mid morning on a Friday I went to the store for one item. Not one express register open, however, if I wanted to be an unpaid employee there were several registers open. I had to be in line with someone who had a full cart of groceries. I think this can be labeled "customer no service"

  46. To whom it may concern I got discharged out of the hospital after dealing with a terminal ill illiness ,I went to Giant in California Maryland. Thus Guant store manager and customer service are always kind especially me being new to the area and thr store. Be advised the pharmacy manager when I asked her a question as to my medication refill they had the particular medicine refill incorrect she loudly in the a crowded store with no privacy with a attitude my entire medicine list with no hippa privacy or no compassion or professional she had a major attitude and really was very very inconsiderate. I brought it to the manager in charge customer service person .....the pharmacy manager in store #359 CALIFORNIA MARYLAND ..sadly she represent a host of personell that must have compassion. Her name is Ms. Katrina she wouldn't really give me her name she was very very uncaring,non helpful and mean. I spend alot of money weekly for my medication and food for my family and it is very disheartening especially when I'm veteran a citizen and elderly just trying to feel better and get me and my grandma medication. Please Giant food cooperation get Ms. Katrina some training and help especially when saying things that HIPPA Laws are against.....

    Thanks Giant food for the amazing workers that I have always came in contact with up until this pharmacist manager at California Maryland Giant. Giant .......

  47. Carol is a disgusting, mean-spirited, unprofessional, sloppy, fat, disrespectful miserable, dusty, poor excuse for an employee. Carol may be a front-end manager. When I asked another employee for her last name. No one wanted to give me that information. Carol called me a bitch as I was speaking to a lovely and kind cashier named Helen. Carol interrupted our conversation. Then got in my face with her long nails. When I made it absolutely clear that she will not disrespect me. Especially a loyal paying customer. Carol ran to get the security to escort me out. I've never been so disrespected. The fact she had the mitigated gall to treat a paying customer so rudely by calling me out my name, get in my face to threaten me to wait until midnight so she could beat me up, and then get security is UNACCEPTABLE!!!

    Clearly, this is a normal practice for Carol. What type of example is she setting for the other employees and for management. This pisspoor behavior makes Giant look extremely horrible. I miss Bruce!!! Bruce would've never allowed this behavior in his store. I wish Yelp had Negative stars to select because even then that still wouldn't rate how despicable this Giant has become in hiring the likes of Carol. She needs to be fired expeditiously!!!
