Ahold: Giant Carlisle named 2015 Chain Retailer of the Year by U.S. monthly business publication Grocery Headquarters

Giant Carlisle has been named 2015 Chain Retailer of the Year by Grocery Headquarters, a national U.S. monthly business publication with a circulation of more than 33,000. The recognition was given for the company’s deep commitment to community, its dedicated associates, its emphasis on buying local, and its focus on nutrition.

Carlisle, PA, 2015-5-6 — /EPR Retail News/ — “On behalf of all of our associates, I want to thank Grocery Headquarters for recognizing our efforts by naming us Chain Retailer of the Year,” said Division President Tom Lenkevich. “Our associates are driven to engaging our customers, connecting to the many communities we serve, and bringing our stores to life. Our store teams are the foundation of our growth and success, and we are just thrilled by this honor.”

As part of this distinction, Giant is the cover story for Grocery Headquarters’ May issue, which can be found here. Richard Turcsik, executive editor of Grocery Headquarters, said that despite Giant Carlisle’s phenomenal growth, its stores remain deeply rooted in their local communities, supporting numerous local charities as well as local farmers and manufacturers. He said the division “does not rest on its laurels, continually offering competitive prices to make it a market leader, along with services and amenities, including in-store dietitians, healthcare clinics, Peapod home delivery and hand-held scanners to help shoppers expedite their visit,” all of which made it an easy choice for 2015 Chain Retailer of the Year.
