GIANT FOOD STORES TO CELEBRATE GRAND OPENING OF 100th FUEL STATION


Carlisle, PA (May 1, 2019) – GIANT Food Stores today announced its 100th fuel station will open for business on Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m. The new fuel station is located in Bethlehem, Pa. at 2182 West Union Blvd.

“Opening our 100th fuel station is an important milestone in our growth strategy as we continue to expand our offerings and give our customers more ways to connect with the GIANT brand,” said Kurt Hoeflein, Bethlehem store manager, GIANT Food Stores. “For our Bethlehem area customers, this new fuel station provides added convenience and another place to save at the pump with our popular Gas Extra Rewards program.”

To celebrate its 100th fuel station, GIANT is donating $1,000 to Friends of Johnston, an all-volunteer charitable nonprofit formed in 2015 and dedicated to the preservation, restoration and sustainable adaptive reuse of the Estate of the first Mayor of Bethlehem. Last week, a group of more than 40 GIANT associates, along with volunteers from Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, joined forces with Friends of Johnston for an outdoor service project at Camel’s Hump Farm in Bethlehem, which included the planting of 200 trees.

For every $100 spent on grocery and pharmacy out-of-pocket expenses at any GIANT using a BonusCard, customers receive ten cents off per gallon of gas when they fill up as part of Gas Extra Rewards. Rewards earned in one month must be redeemed by the end of the following month. For example, any points earned in May, need to be redeemed by June 30. Rewards points are tracked at the bottom of the GIANT receipt.

The new Bethlehem fuel station has eight pumps total, each with a Pay-at-the-Pump feature. Diesel fuel is also available. GIANT gift cards can also be redeemed at fuel sites, including the new Bethlehem fuel station.

Every time a customer fills up at a GIANT fuel location, a portion of the money spent is given to the new Reduced Emissions Program in partnership with GreenPrint. The “You Pump. We Plant.” Reduced Emissions Program gives back proportionally to local communities through environmental projects like planting trees while investing in carbon reductions projects like reforestation and solar power.
