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.

Today at your Monroeville store on Monroeville blvd , the cashier lines were long and stretched down the shopping aisles. Seven unmanned cashier lines were dark. I asked your employee Claudia if some could open. I was told in a sarcastic nasty tone that they had no one to man them. This is not the problem of the customer. Staffing is your duty to see that we are not delayed by your staffing problems. And I will not allow smart retorts from your people. I will go somewhere else for my shopping.

Hi I was was a previous employee at the Giant Eagle Pharmacy in hermitage I was let go yesterday August 20th by Shelley my Manager. She has said reasons why I was let go was because I did not like my job and that I did not do it well. Which is very wrong I loved my job loved what I was doing. I did things without being asked to do it but she disagreed by saying” I told you to do everything when to do it and how to do it which is so not true”. If I wasn’t doing my job right then why was she giving me all these hours including over time? Ialso know that she got rid of the wrong person. There is a kid who works there that she shows favoritism all the time to which is wrong. He has always come into work late, called off many times a few minutes before his shift was about to start, and also lost a script for a customer which then the customer had towait a few days bc she couldn’t get a new one from the Dr. All in all Shelley did nothing about his actions at all and I’m the one that got let go and I did nothing wrong? I would really like for this to be looked into more and find out what’s wrong. And she better have written that up about that script going missing because if not things can end up bad. I would love to get my job back and I should have never been let go I did everything as best as I could all the customers loved me never had one complaint from any of them.

Hello – My family spends $200 + at your Brentwood, PA store weekly and has done so for the last 8 years. Over the last month I have had two occasions where I have arrived home without everything I paid for. Last night 8/15/15 I went shopping and In my purchase were a box of pre-packaged bakery cookies, a birthday card and a $25 Toys R Us gift card. These items never arrived home with me. When I noticed them missing I had to return to the store after putting my groceries away. What a hassle at 10:30 at night! I went to a store manager who I saw was in the customer service area at the time and was obviously dissatisfied I had to come back for my items. Mainly, because this is the SECOND time in a month this has happened to me. Thankfully, this time I got the items I purchased back. This manager said and I quote, “we do hundreds of transactions a day, this doesn’t happen very often. I will investigate.” That is funny since it happened to me TWICE in a month! I have been coming to this store for 8 + years and am only now having this problem so I am questioning the quality of cashiers and the training they have received. Anyhow, from a management perspective an apology and maybe a store gift card would have been nice for my hassle. Especially, since I am obviously a loyal customer by shopping every week and spending a good deal of money. I guess I will have to take my business elsewhere as I do not have to time to make multiple trips to the store nor the ability to pay for groceries I am not taking home with me.

Thank You.

Giant Eagle, do you think your shoppers are idiots? Your prices are far from the best. Just shop around. Your gas prices are not the best and your peanut perks we get do not improve the price.I shop at the Waterfront GE. Why does that store continually change this store around ? Do you think that having the shopper look around for product will make them buy more? Your wrong. It makes them go to Shop N Save or Wal Mart where items in the stores stay in the same places and the prices are better. Also, You have no “Advantage” to anyone. Just ask around. I cant find a person that likes GE. I am going to post on social media how much I dislike your whole operation and lets see if your numbers improve. You don’t realize that most folks agree with me. One time, Just one time, explain on a tv commercial what this “Advantage” truly is shopping there. It is extremely vague even to loyal customers. Realize GE, social media can make or break you. You are small potatoes compared to the voice of the people. Why don’t you start to ask the customer what he wants not do what you think he wants. You are far from being on the edge of being progressive in your operational methods.
