In celebration of the recent opening of their 88th Beer & Wine Eatery in Pennsylvania at the Hellertown store at 1880 Leithsville Road in Lower Saucon Township, Giant Food Stores said Thursday that the store will host a grand opening with beer and wine tastings this Saturday, Dec. 29 from 1 to 3 p.m.
“Just in time for New Year’s celebrations, we are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our new Beer & Wine Eatery,” said James Sentiwany, store manager, in a news release. “Our associates are ready to help customers make their selections from the more than 300 varieties of local and national brand beer and wine.”
Customers will find hundreds of domestic, imported and craft beers along with a large wine selection in the Beer & Wine Eatery, the company said.
For beer lovers, there is a “mix-a-six” option to create their own six-packs from a variety of craft beers. Customers can also choose from eat-in and take-out food choices, including sandwiches, wraps, subs, and salads.
Booth seating is available inside the Beer & Wine Eatery, which has an exterior door and connects to the main store next to the Starbucks kiosk.
The new eatery seats 30 and is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
“Giant enforces a 100 percent proof-of-age policy for both beer and wine sales,” the news release said. “To protect the community, associates will ask for proper identification–a valid driver’s license, passport or military identification card–from any customer seeking to purchase alcohol, regardless of age.”
Beer and wine purchases must be made separately, which is why there is a register inside the new eatery.
Alcoholic beverages purchases are not eligible to receive bonus card points.
