Carlisle, PA. (September 12, 2016) - The Daily Meal, a website dedicated to food and drink, has named GIANT Food Stores the best grocery store in the state of Pennsylvania.

“To be recognized by The Daily Meal as the best grocery store in Pennsylvania is a great honor, especially for our dedicated and passionate store associates,” said Tom Lenkevich, GIANT president. “This recognition showcases how our associates help our customers save time, save money and eat well.”

To compile the state-by-state rankings, The Daily Meal looked at online reviews, local polls, social media posts and check-ins. Informal polls were also conducted with locals to find out more about product quality, customer service and price.
