Who We Are

At Giant Penny, family is the heart of our business. Family-owned and operated since husband and wife team Le Nguyen and Huong Tran first opened the doors in 1992, Giant Penny has remained a Tran family business, with ownership transitioning to siblings Loc, Cuong, and Hai in 2003. The Tran siblings--together with our dedicated staff--bring over 200 combined years of experience in the grocery business. Our rich heritage as a community grocer dictates our commitment to provide quality products and everyday value delivered to you with a friendly approach.

It’s this commitment to family that sets Giant Penny apart. We see you—our customers and community—as an extension of this family. And that’s why it is our number one priority to offer fresh meats, quality produce, and an expanding health-conscious product line all at prices you can afford.

At Giant Penny:

● Our meats are fresh cut—never frozen

● Poultry is delivered daily and hand packaged on site

● Beef and pork are cut, grind and packed in-house, eliminating the need for preservatives

● We offer local produce, such as watermelons, cantaloupes, peaches, strawberries, corn, and greens, when fresh and available

Located right in between the Plaza/Midwood and NoDa neighborhoods, Giant Penny is a popular neighborhood shopping spot. We are pleased to be able to offer our community fresh for less—with the lowest meat prices in the Charlotte area and affordable, low-cost healthy fruits and vegetables—from our family to yours.
