CARLISLE, Pa. — Thirty-five Giant Food Stores and Martin's Food Markets stores in Pennsylvania and Virginia will sponsor drug take-back events later this month.
The chains, which collectively comprise Ahold USA's Giant-Carlisle banner, will sponsor the events on April 27, in partnership with local law enforcement agencies and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Patients can bring expired and unwanted medications, which will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner for free.
"We're proud to partner with the DEA and local law enforcement authorities to assist customers with properly disposing of unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications and to reduce the amount of medication polluting our environment and our local communities," Giant-Carlisle director of pharmacy operations Leigh Shirley said.
In other news, Giant-Carlisle announced the completion of a remodel of its Halifax, Pa., store. The newly remodeled store includes a wider selection of products and services, including self-serve EasyScan registers and Nature's Promise Marketplace, a section dedicated to natural and organic products, including 16 feet of space dedicated to gluten-free products.
