Shrewsbury, PA's new Giant

I post this here because most Shrewsbury residents work in the Baltimore area and I'm sure there are a few hounds among us.

Giant stores in PA have nothing to do with those in Maryland, but until now that just meant that the stores known as "Guchi" Giants were only in MD. Well, if you get a chance, check out the new Giant in Shrewsbury (right at exit 1 on I-83). Very cool! I blame the soon-to-be Wegmans in Hunt Valley first and formost for this well done effort. Giant saw the demand for such a store and just went for it.

I'll let someone else fill in the details on the store. The bakery, butcher, deli, chinese food, seafood, and amazing display of carry out stuff is unheard of outside of the world of Whole Foods.

I don't think this new Giant is quite up to Whole Foods, but man, are they ever so close! Lets just say, close enough for me not to want to drive another 35-40 minutes. I think they are several notches above Grauls (sp) markets.

Have fun,
