The acquisition, expected to be completed by the beginning of March, will mark the second Giant location in Carlisle.
The 51,800-square-foot store is planned to close temporarily on Feb. 28 for conversion and reopen as a Giant in late March. The pharmacy will remain open during the conversion. Nell’s associates will have the opportunity to apply for positions at the new Giant, the company said.
Nell's Shurfine was acquired by C&S in 2014 as part of its takeover of Associated Wholesalers Inc. In June, C&S sold a Hanover, Pa., Nell's site to Weis Markets.
“Giant has been proud to call the Carlisle community home for more than 90 years,” Tom Lenkevich, Giant's president, said. “We are always looking for ways to grow our business and provide convenient locations to help our customers save money, save time and eat well.”
While plans are still being finalized, the converted store will feature Giant's newest marketplace style produce section, the latest bakery department and offering, updated and expanded prepared foods and deli department, and an expanded natural and organic department. Giant operates 196 stores in four states.
