Giant Food Inc.

This Landover-based supermarket giant posted a nearly 3 percent increase in net income for the first quarter, which ended May 18, compared with the same period a year ago.

Giant said that its improved performance was due to three factors: expenses as a percent of sales dropped during the quarter as the supermarket implemented cost-saving measures; improved buying and merchandising of grocery items; and growth in sales volume.

Giant operates 154 supermarkets and is the largest food chain in Maryland.
