Carlisle, PA – To provide customers and businesses with affordable ideas for their upcoming holiday parties, GIANT Food Stores is hosting Holiday Open Houses at its GIANT Super Food Stores in Harrisburg and Camp Hill. The open houses are scheduled for Thursday, December 6 from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Camp Hill GIANT located at 3301 Trindle Road and at the GIANT located at 2300 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg.

Displays will be featured throughout both stores highlighting the various party trays available for purchase, as well as sampling. Prize drawings for businesses will also be held throughout the evening.

“The holiday season is a busy time for all of us and many would prefer to spend more time with our families and guests and less time in the kitchen,” said Jeff Beaulieu, vice president of sales and merchandising. “GIANT offers a variety of ready-made party trays for convenient ordering and pick-up in our stores and our holiday open house provides us with an opportunity to showcase the variety of offerings we have for both businesses and families.”
