Giant grocery stores have been one of the most popular grocery destinations in Gaithersburg for many years. Giant has multiple Gaithersburg locations (Muddy Branch and Kentlands being the closest stores) and offers a large variety of name brand foods. The stores tend to be the busiest in Gaithersburg and are particularly crowded on weekend mornings.

Safeway grocery stores have been a staple in the Gaithersburg community for almost 20 years. The closest location to Cadence is a 5 minute drive to Darnestown road location (across the street from Quince Orchard High School).
