Giant to acquire Musser’s Markets

Giant Food Stores announced Aug. 19 that it entered into an agreement with Musser’s Markets to acquire its three Pennsylvania locations in Columbia, Lebanon and Quarryville.

The sale is expected to be completed by the end of October. Upon completion, the stores will temporarily be closed for about one week for a remodel.

Musser’s Markets said in a news release that the decision was based on changes in the industry, loss of its cooperative wholesaler (AWI), customer buying habits, online pressure and competition in the Lancaster and Lebanon areas. Musser’s Markets had been operating for 94 years.

Company launches pharmacy app

Giant Food Stores on Aug. 22 announced it has launched its Giant Pharmacy App, where customers can request refills, transfer prescriptions and view prescription history.

The app can be downloaded for free from Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Customers will need to create an account ID and password to sign into the app, as well as provide a recent prescription number and the preferred Giant location.

To ensure patient security, the customer will be contacted upon completing the user information at the phone number in their pharmacy profile to authenticate the account.
