Thank you for contacting us to express your feelings about the Laurel Town Center Giant closing on July 31.
We understand your disappointment and want you to know that this was a very difficult decision. We never like to affect our customers or associates by closing our stores. We hope that our customers will be able to shop at the following nearby Giant locations:
1009 Fairlawn Street in Laurel, MD11701 Beltsville Drive in Beltsville, MD
We will close the Pharmacy on July 31. Pharmacy customers will receive notification by mail in advance of the closing with details on pharmacy record transfers.
Currently, the Laurel Town Center store employs 69 associates, all of whom will be given opportunities to transfer to other area Giant stores.
It has been our pleasure serving your community and we look forward to continuing to serve you in our other stores.
Customer Care Representative
