Giant is higher priced on Kosher product than Genuardi's. They think everyone is wealthy in this area. I take the bus to ShopRite.

Giant is owned by Royal Ahold - a Dutch company. I think that's a good thing since you look at the US owned supermarkets (Safeway, SuperValu, A&P), they are the ones with higher prices hence the large amounts of store closings.
