Helping you figure out what not to buy

NORTHERN VIRGINIA & MARYLAND (WDVM) — Giant Food is launching a new initiative to highlight minority-owned business providers in their stores. 

Over 3,000 products in Giant stores will feature updated shelf labels. There are over 218 businesses in Giant’s vendor partnerships. 

The labels represent businesses that are Women, Black, Asian-Indian, Hispanic, LGBT, Asian-Pacific, or Veteran owned. The program is part of the store’s efforts to promote diversity.

  4. This nonsense is long overdue for some serious backlash. Hope it gets some, as your title suggests.

  5. I sure am glad all that racial, and other stuff, disappeared after Johnson created the "Great Society". The last seventy years (especially the last ten) have been hallmarks in the creation of a society that doesn't judge by anything but character.

  6. The most important factor in Giant stores is "EBT accepted here". Those people don't read labels let alone care what's on them.

  8. Makes little difference to me, I will be denied entry either way - no vax (app) for me and mine. I get denied 90% of the time now - - no mask. I get what I need on line. No Amazoon, local as possible. Small business people - build your websites, better from us than box stores.

  9. They'll probably keep a database of who isn't buying the food that the minority-owned businesses are selling and try and lock you up.

    1. No, not that. Remember, Biden is going to jail, Trump will be in control for awhile longer. Not buying the misfits shit will eventually get the misfits tossed off the shelves. Shelv space is expensive. The stuff doesn't sell, it gets deleted

  11. I had used Uncle Ben's and Aunt Jemima's products for years, until they told me I couldn't. I have even bought food by Chef Boyardee.

  15. I read labels and I look to see where shit is made or packaged. Have you ever asked a butcher where their shrimp comes from? I do not eat shrimp from Asia therefore I rarely eat shrimp. Hard to find it from elsewhere at least in my area.

    Store Clerk: You do realize you're in a Home Depot don't you?
