Amazon opens first Pennsylvania grocery store in Bucks County

The first Amazon Fresh store in Pennsylvania has opened at the Creekview Center in Warrington as others are in the works for the region.

The Bucks County store at 389 Easton Road totals 35,000 square feet and nearly backfills a 49,000-square-foot space vacated by Giant. Inc. declined to specify how many full and part-time employees are working at the store other than to say it is “creating hundreds” of jobs.

Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is expanding its grocery footprint with Amazon Fresh, which is considered a low price alternative to the company’s Whole Foods Market. The Warrington location is its 17th Amazon Fresh store in the country and the company is planning to add several more throughout the Philadelphia area.

It is planning to open another store in Bucks County in 41,000 square feet of a former Kmart at the Brookwood Shopping Center on Street Road in Bensalem as well as in about 40,000 square feet at a mixed-use project at 5th and Spring Garden streetsin Philadelphia.

The company also intends to open a store at 2940 Springfield Road in Broomall, where it has also secured a liquor license to sell wine and beer, according to Marple documents. The company is also reportedly seeking to open a store in a former LA Fitness at 403 West Chester Pike in Havertown.
