2/2/22 Update: Construction is set to begin 

Giant Food has signed on to open at the Orchard Center on Cherry Hill Rd in Calverton, according to a report from the Washington Business Journal. Per the report, the Landover-based grocery chain has signed a lease for the roughly 64,626-square-foot ShopRite space at 12028 Cherry Hill Rd. ShopRite closed back in February of 2020 year and Aldi opened in the shopping center later that year in October.

If construction begins as anticipated, a summer 2022 opening is possible. This would be the 21st Giant Food location in Montgomery County.

Rockville Woman Wins $1.4 Million Prize with Quick-Pick Ticket From Grocery Store

Per MD Lottery:

“Why not,” is what a Rockville woman says to herself when she visits the grocery store and sees Maryland Lottery games. The 20-year-old decided to let herself play recently and the odds were definitely in her favor. She purchased a Multi-Match quick-pick ticket for the April 22 drawing and, to her great surprise, won $1.4 million.

“I just got lucky,” the happy winner said. After buying groceries, she uses her change to buy Lottery tickets and didn’t suspect to land a jackpot prize. “I was very surprised, I was not expecting it at all.” In addition to playing Multi-Match, she enjoys playing Mega Millionsand Powerball.

When asked of her plans for the windfall, the Montgomery County resident said she plans to make investments with her prize.

This lucky lady won the second of the three Multi-Match jackpots hit in 2021. A Baltimore County woman won a $2.75 million jackpot on Feb. 4 on a ticket sold by 7-Eleven #32287 in Owings Mills. And, a Multi-Match subscriber just won a $520,000 jackpot in the May 3 drawing.

Our player’s winning Lottery retailer, Giant #319 located at 625 Hungerford Drive in Rockville, can also celebrate. The Lottery will give the grocery a $1,400 bonus for selling a winning Multi-Match ticket of more than $1 million.
