When it comes to where we get our food, Lancaster City and County have both had a wild ride. Last year, Giant’s Walnut Street location closed. Earlier this year, Darrenkamp’s Supermarket closed its doors as well. However, earlier this year, Wegman’s and Whole Foods opened their doors to Lancaster County residents. But what does all this turnover mean for folks living in the city?
Saturday morning about 30 people gathered at Conestoga Plaza, a commercial center recently built by the Spanish American Civic Association (SACA) for the grand opening of Brothers’ Grocery Max.
Lancaster Newspaper writes, “When Giant closed its Lancaster city grocery store in May 2017, the opportunity for the new, 10,000-square-foot store became more apparent.
“Now with this store, we’re going to have the space, the parking, and the commodities to service that crowd that Giant is not serving,” said Adriano Gomez, the store’s principal owner.“
