Quarryville's 103-year-old, family-owned Ferguson & Hassler supermarket, nicknamed Fergie's, closed June 18, 2019. 

Despite the supermarket closing, Ferguson & Hassler's legacy will continue on as its recipe for chicken salad is now property of Giant. 

Friday afternoon, the supermarket announced that Giant Food Stores would be "keeping [its] famous Fergie's chicken salad." 

Nicknamed Fergie's, the 103-year-old supermarket announced May 20 that its doors would close on June 19 and the business would be sold to Giant Food Stores. 

On Facebook, many customers responded to the supermarket's closing announcement with concerns and praises -- mostly about Fergie's "famous" chicken salad. 

"I hope they keep the same chicken salad recipe! Best in the country!" one comment read.

"Will they still make and sell chicken salad with the same recipe?" was another comment. 

Once Fergie's announced on Facebook that their chicken salad was property of Giant Food Stores, chicken salad fans crowded in the comments. 

Someone commented, "Great news. Best chicken salad ever. I travel miles to buy it."

Another person commented, "Thank you, Giant."
