Giant Food opening new store Friday in Locust Point

Giant Food will open its sixth city location Friday in Locust Point, bringing 150 new jobs to south Baltimore. The 44,000-square-foot store will open Nov. 18 in the Southside Marketplace at 857 E. Fort Ave. near the Fort McHenry National Park, officials of the Landover-based grocery chain said Monday. The store will replace a Shoppers Food and Pharmacy, which closed in June amid a companywide restructuring.
