As a result of a corporate merger the Giant Food store in Salisbury which launched in February, 1959 as Super Giant, is no more. The store, under new ownership, is transitioning to an ACME market. 

Giant was a very big deal locally when it began operation on South Salisbury Boulevard as evidenced by an estimated 25,000 persons coming to an Open House at the store the day before its opening, and road traffic coming to the store was estimated to be at least 15,000 vehicles that afternoon.

In its early years in Salisbury Giant offered department store merchandise in addition to its grocery items.
