Red carpet "Premiere Night" for the new Giant grocery store, located at 300 H St. in Northeast, will be held on May 2. The highly-anticipated celebration for the 41,000 square–foot, LEED-certified building will feature special activities including live entertainment, gifts, food sampling, and more.

The H Street store, which will create more than 100 jobs, and be open 24 hours a day, is the second Giant in Northeast. It is also one of two new stores scheduled to open this year in the District, with a third store scheduled to open in 2014.

Customers attending "Premiere Night" will meet their new store team and take a tour of the facility before the public opening at 6 a.m. Friday, May 3. Local dignitaries – including D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton -- and community members will join in a 6 p.m. ribbon cutting ceremony and Giant will make a donation to the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington.
