Giant Foods Stores LLC is closing two Lancaster county stores, the Carlisle-based grocery chain announced Friday.

Giant will close its store at 2074 Fruitville Pike in Manheim Township, and its store at 235 North Reservoir St. store in Lancaster City on May 18, because the stores are older models and cannot be expanded with new amenities for customers, a news release said.

Collectively, the two stores employ 170 employees, who will be offered comparable positions in surrounding stores.

When the stores close, Giant will still have several remaining stores in Lancaster County, and it is redirecting its resources to those locations, according to company president Tom Lenkevich.

“It’s always difficult to close a store, but this decision was made as result of an ongoing assessment of our store fleet, and in this instance, the stores being closed are not part of our long-term plans for Lancaster,” Lenkevich said. “We are always evaluating our stores to ensure we have the right number in the right locations to serve our customers."
