Doylestown Giant receives liquor license


The Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors on May 1 approved a motion authorizing the transfer of a liquor license from a location in Richlandtown Borough to the Giant Supermarket to be located at 1661 Easton Road. It was once home to Redners Warehouse Market.

The motion will allow for the construction of a 32-seat in-store beer garden and eatery within Giant’s existing premises.

According to Ellen Freeman, representing Giant, customers wishing to purchase and consume alcohol on Giant’s premises will be required to purchase a meal, as well. The eatery also will feature a two-beer limit. Freeman said the eatery will feature a sushi bar, a soup bar, a salad bar and a hot entree bar.

For the managers of the eatery, legal oversight will be the primary focus of business operations.

“We’ll have a 100 percent carding policy,” said Giant Food Store manager Colin Heep. “We feel it takes the gray area out of the equation.

“We have 33 beer gardens in Pennsylvania and many in other states, as well,” Heep said.

“We have a spotless record, and we’re proud of that. Giant’s beer gardens have no citations.”

Six-packs and wine may be ordered as takeout options.

“The majority of our sales are from takeout business,” Heep said.

Officials expect the Giant to open in February.
