Lift Every Voice
— Georgia Ave./Pleasant Plains Heritage Trail —Braving a blizzard in February 1936, eager customers lined up to experience a modern, self-service, cash-only supermarket. Nehemiah Cohen and Samuel Lehrman's Giant Food here on Georgia Avenue was the chain's first. Although the Memphis-born Piggly Wiggly chain pioneered the supermarket concept, it took Giant to capture DC consumers.
