Giant Eagle History
Giant Eagle was founded in 1918 as Eagle Grocery by 3 families: Porter, Chait and Goldstein/Shapira.
In 1928, they sell the company to Kroger.
In 1931, after their non-compete had elapsed, those 3 families joined the Moravitz and Weizenbaum families to form Giant Eagle.
The company grows steadily in the 30s and 40s despite the Great Depression.
The company expanded to Ohio in the 1980s with the acquisition of Youngstown based Tamarkin.
In 1991, the Giant Eagle Advantage Card is introduced.
In 2000, the company enters the Columbus, Ohio market. They expand to Toledo the following year.
By 2008, the company had 23 stores in the Columbus market.
Today, Giant Eagle operates 221 stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland. They also operate 168 GetGo gas stations.
