our history

Our story starts in 1936 when N.M. Cohen and Samuel Lehrman founded Giant Food Inc. and opened Washington, DC’s first supermarket.

Since then, we’ve continued to grow and innovate, pioneering computer-assisted checkout scanning and opening over 150 stores throughout Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
