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 grew steadily in the 30’s and 40’s, 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.

The company is the 49th largest retailer in the US, with annual revenue in 2011 of $9.3 billion and 36,000 full-time employees.

In 2017, the company rolled out a trial program called Food & Wine Friday’s, where shoppers would purchase a wine glass and get free wine and food samples on Friday’s.

Today, Giant Eagle operates 417 stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland.  They also operate 168 GetGo gas stations.

yesterday I want to the Springfield akron giant eagle and after locating the items i went to purchase I was in line behind another customer and watched the millenial cashier with her nose ring and septum bull ring and her exposed tattoos. She rang out the customer in front of me then rang me out with out even saying hello or thank you! appearance should mean something in business

Horrible experience. Went to get gas @ Get Go. I wanted to write a check (not 1st time for me to write check @ Get Go. Cashier goes “do you have cash a check privileges” . I said ” I do not know what that means”. She goes ” you need to go to Giant Eagle to get check cashing privileges”. Giant Eagle is 10 minutes from Get Go. I said ” so you want me to go to Giant Eagle then come back for gas” and I just walked away. Cashier runs out little cabin yelling that “when you sign for Giant Eagle card you need to ask for check cashing privileges”. I was really upset and embarrassed. I called manager knowing that nothing will happen. Just FYI i am (let me rephrase that ) was Giant Eagle customer for 19-20 years and wrote so many checks in the store and Get Go and I was never treated this way. After all that fiasco I went to Sheetz and got gas (BTW paid with check) with no problem. GIANT EAGLE NEED TO FOLLOW SHEETZ POLICY REGARDING CUSTOMER SERVICE.

I have beeen a customer of Giant Eagle for decades and have an Advantage Card. On Friday, November 17, 2017, I went to the Howland Giant Eagle and discovered I had forgotten my debit card which is a Huntington Bank Card. I asked the cashier if she could take a check and she said yes. However, the system would not allow the check as it said I did not have cash checking privileges. I have never written a bad check and feel free to verify that with Huntington Bank. I was told to go to the service desk by some male employee of the store and he met me there and he entered my check information and said you can now cash checks at Giant Eagle but not today. So I went to the Huntington Bank within the store wrote a check for cash to get the $83.52 and then I paid cash for the groceries. It was an unpleasant situation. Is Giant Eagle so non-tech savvy that you cannot take a check and have it immediately taken out of my checking account? When I left Giant Eagle, I went to Home Depot and Home Depot took my check and the amount was processed immediately from my checking account and the check was even handed back to me because it had been processed. I am not sure I want to continue shopping at Giant Eagle because I was treated as someone not to be trusted and I was inconvenienced. Pamela Keresztesy

I am over 60, and exclusively have shopped at Giant Eagle in metro Cleveland for like forever! I will NEVER write a check there again. I am writing to their corporate offices for yet a 3rd time. Without notice, they swept my account for $90, for 3 checks which briefly were NSF some time beforehand, through NO FAULT OF MINE, they immediately went through as a re-deposit. I owed them nothing and weeks later my bank allowed $90 (part of my food budget!), to be taken away. I see they have signs posted about this unethical charge (my bank charges $37.50 already for NSF checks), but I have NEVER given knowingly my permission to just take this money – it was a complete surprise. 36,000 great employees in local stores cannot make up for this (to me big) monetary loss. They would have gotten this anyhow, but now I have nothing to show (food) for this swiped ninety dollars. David Wolf, Cleveland, OH

After reading many of these comments it is clear to me that customer service is not a priority or concern with Giant Eagle so I’m not going to waste my time explaining my complaint. But I would like to say that Brandon, “grocery manager”, at the Ravenna, Ohio St. Rt. 59 Giant Eagle, made an unfortunate situation at that location on 11/15/17 much much worse than it needed to be. He has no concept of customer service. He provokes anger with his arrogant, condescending, rude attitude. He has no business in the position he is in and unfortunately lost me as a customer and I foresee him loosing many more. I am not a proponent of people loosing their jobs, but Brandon should not have any type of managerial position or play any role in customer service.

Giant Eagle drugstore in Kennedy Twp. either has a drug addict handling Rx mediation r they are to stupid to know how to count to 30. I recently had my sons concerta. the RX was picked up on Friday morning by my husband and the bottle remained in the bag all day until I got home from work. I opened the bag and as soon as I handled the bottle I know there was NOT 30 pills in it. I counted them and found only 23 of the 30 prescription #. I immediately called the drugstore and was told THREE people then the pharmacist counted and there were 30. Impossible that three technician idiots and then a higly educated even bigger idiot checked this bottle and counted 30 when there was only 23. Well security videos were reviewed and inventory counted and low and behold they still contend that there were 30 in the bottle. My son never handled the bottle. the only finger prints on it are mine and my husbands after I told him to count the 23 pills. I realize the three technicians could loose their jobs and the pharmacist her license but these so called educated idiots did something with 7 pills. Of course they circled their wagon and are insinuating we did something inappropriate. Now I am on a mission to bad mouth the GE drugstore In Kennedy Twp. to everyone and anyone I know. Its not the only drugstore in town. We have Rite Aide, CVS and Walgreens on every corner. and yes I also agree with others that GE including drugstore have the most rude ill mannered people in positions of customer service I have even seen.

Away for weekend, stopped in Giant Eagle in Oil City, PA today August 25, 2017. Purchased 8 piece fried chicken, received 7 pieces; 1 wing, 1 small breast, 1 drumstick and 4 thighs! Was overcharged $2.00 per pound for cheese at deli. Deli associate rude. Only one cashier on duty, customers complaining in long line. THIS STORE NEEDS TO BE CLOSED OR MANAGER FIRED! No comparison to Giant Eagle stores I usually shop in, Sarver and Gibsonia.

I would like to bring a matter to your attention. I regularly visit your getgo location and love the food, the people and the atmosphere. However, My friends and I may start going to other stores such as sheetz or 7-11 due to the problem of your coffee. It is great when it’s available and that seems to be never when I arrive every day between 3 and 5 pm. Almost regularly all varieties are down for cleaning all at the same time every day. Today the only 2 that were available were decaf and columbian and the columbian poured about 1 oz before it ran out leaving me with only decaf. This seems to be the situation everyday between 3 and 5 pm and the coffee is not available for a long time during this time causing me to leave and look elsewhere. I know I’ve heard other customers complain and leave as well for the same reason. It is even becoming somewhat of a joke around bridgeville. “Wanna go to getgo? It depends, what time is it?” I just wanted you to be aware of this situation. Can’t the coffee be cleaned or replaced at other times and not almost all at the same time?.


Claudia Brogdon July 14, 2017 at 9:33 pm

Poor quality, produce goes bad within a couple days, rude and nasty and slow employees, sale shelves empty. Tired of getting a fist full of rain checks every visit. Please tell me why I should continually spend my money in your store?


nancy schmidt July 12, 2017 at 4:39 pm

Re: Brentwood Town Square location 15227
Manager, Tom, is quite rude and tolerates the check out person, Andrew as he bullies other check out employees and customers. When I brought this to manager, Tom, he laughed right in my face. Andrew was standing there laughing also. Please take care of this as it makes for a very unpleasant shopping experience. I called the corporate office and was unable to reach anyone. Does Giant Eagle support Tom’s inept behavior? Sad.


JN May 22, 2017 at 6:29 pm

Third time posting.
Boy, I am not sure what happened to my initial complaint but it is now deleted!!! Here is the gist of my original complaint!!
I was at the Market District at Settler’s Ridge in Robinson Township today, 5-22-17. I stood at the meat department counter for well over 10 minutes while Don, who works behind the counter, watched me stand there. It was not until another employee and my complaint to a manager did he wait on me. When he decide wait on me, I was met with complaints and groans about how much work he needs to do and does not have time to wait on me, a paying customers. After much bantering, I told him what I wanted to order. He started to complain and swear at me so I went over to complain to original manager. When I came back, Don was back at his work counter and did not package what I had ordered. He came back and was still complaining and belittling me when another worker named Jason came. I said that Jason could help me.
Don went back to his work counter and said “F$%^ off”!!!! I told the original manager and he did nothing. So I spoke to Jessica, who seems to be higher. She said that he would be removed from the counter. I was there for 30 minutes and Don was still behind the counter. So I found another manager who had grey hair and facial hair of some kind. Nothing was ever done with Don.
I came home and called Customer Care. As of 4:00, I did not hear anything. Finally received a phone call basically saying that they will look into it.
I spend over $10000 groceries a year, not including gas, prescriptions or for my parents. To be treated like this is unacceptable, and discouraging. I am sure that he will keep his job and I will be looking for another store.
SETTLER’S RIDGE MARKET DISTRICT SHOULD BE ASHAMED ALLOWING AN EMPLOYEE SPEAKING TO A CUSTOMER LIKE THAT!! If I was a man, there would be no way he would say that to him. I have been a loyal customer for well over 30 years.


JN May 25, 2017 at 6:32 am

Well, the “investigation” is completed. Don who said “f#$% you” to me said that he did not say it so Giant Eagle believed him over a paying customer. Giant Eagle should be ashamed for allowing their employee to speak to a paying customer, or anyone for that matter. There is no way that I am considered “a valued customer” when nothing has been done. Save it Giant Eagle, you are pitiful!


JN May 22, 2017 at 4:41 pm

I shopped at the Market District at Settler’s Ridge in Ronbinson Township,Pa on 5-22-17. I will say that my experience was awful, humiliating and vulgar. Don behind the meat department refused to help me. When a manager and another employee told him to, he finally did. What I met was an angry, disrespectful man who complained the whole time that he has too much work to do to help me. When I complained to the manager again, Don refused to help. Another employee behind the counter, Jason, said that he would assist me.

That is when Don told me, a paying customer, to “F$&@$ off”!!!!! I complained to the original manager, to Jessica who informed me that Don would be taken off the floor (to which he was not for the 1 hour I was there shopping), and to another manager (who had grey hair and facial hair of some sort. Don should be FIRED! I spend well over $10000 a year on groceries ali e, not counting gas and shopping for my parents.

NO CUSTOMER SERVICE at MARKET DISTRICT ROBINSON. I called the customer care number as well. No follow up of any kind!! That’s a great way to treat your customers.

If I was a man, Don would NEVER have said to him. Disrespectful and disgusting!

I shopped at Giant Eagle Lakewood on Sunday, May 7th. I was looking for Stouffer”s Spice Wraps and couldn”t find them. Of course, I didn’t know its name or who made them. I just knew it was a product made on paper that added spices to fish and chicken. In spite of my ignorance, three employees went out of their way to find what I was talking about.It would have been easy for them to just blow me off as a confused old lady, but they searched high and low for me. I appreciate that dedication to customer service They were kind and interested in the product I was describing. The people who helped me, were excellent workers who represented the best kind of employees. As a corporation, you should be pleased with the employees that represent you!


Terry Robertson April 16, 2017 at 2:34 pm

I would like to know what kind of piece of garbage, jerk, AHOLE drivers you have working for your company. Apparently the kind that either knows they can verbally attack a customer and their supervisors WONT do anything or the kind that doesnt care.

I dont appreciate being called a d**k head and listening to your driver run his mouth at me and then go after my wife. I purchased fuel at Get Go, at the corner of W Smith and S Court in Medina OHIO. Your truck was in the parking lot, I went around it. I WENT AROUND IT. The driver was walking out of the store and started yelling at me. He didnt start filling the tanks, the hoses wernt out, there was not cones set up, there was plenty of room. That station is very tight to get in & out of to begin with. so, why he didnt like me going around his truck??? I dont care if he has to work on Sunday or on Easter, that does not give him the right to verbally assault customers.

Yes, I told him I would call his supervisor and I started video, it is at the end and he would not call me the names that he did BUT he was XXXXy enough to keep running his mouth. I will attach it and a picture of his license plate. Although the way he acted, I dont believe you will do anything about it.

I am also going to send this to Giant Eagle, I’m sure they will appreciate the company they are purchasing fuel from, is chasing their customers to the competition.

Went to the Cranberry (Rt #19) Giant Eagle around 6:45pm on 03/29/17. Wanted to order a Golf theme Birthday cake (which I had seen on the website) for my father’s 80th BD. The girl took my name and number and I told her what cake I wanted and what it was for. She told me to wait a minute so in the meantime I walked over to the cake book. The cake I was looking at had a golf cart and misc golf decorations on it. She came back to tell me the only figure she had for the cake was a female golfer. I told her that was not going to work since this was for my father. I asked what she suggested I do. Her response was to go to Michael’s and buy what I wanted and bring it back. So my first issue is, it you advertise a cake I would expect you to have all the supplies. Then to tell me to go get the supplies. I called Corporate office on Thursday morning and registered my complaint and the girl asked if I would like a manager to call me. – Well yes, how else is this going to be resolved. Well guess what – not even a phone call back from the manager. Obviously ordered my cake elsewhere. Thank you Giant Eagle for saving me $10 and everyone enjoyed a much better cake

I have been a Giant Eagle shopper for around forty years.
I have always been satisfied and happy shopping there.
I recently moved to Pleasant Hills and shopped at the Giant Eagle on Mountainview Drive in West Mifflin. I will never shop there again. I bought celery and when I went to clean it there was a huge worm on one stock and I spread the stocks and they were full of black dots………..then I went to wash leaf lettuce and the middle was slimmy and brownish….
and the worst was a half ham I bought and it smelled strange and the outside of it was yellowed and greenish. I brought all three products back to the store and got my money back. Now I am afraid to shop there for fear my family will have food poisoning or worse.

It is a shame because I can’t shop there and it was so convenient. Now I probably will go to the Shop and Save in the same area. Giant Eagle what is happening in that store!!


Shannan March 14, 2017 at 11:04 am

I have been a customer of Giant Eagle in Boardman Ohio on Boardman-Canfield Road for many years. I have a family of 4 and I am in the store one to two times a week buying groceries and usually spending between $350-$400. As a loyal customer I have always been committed to not switching stores until recently. Last Wednesday afternoon I had the most horrible experience I have ever had at a store, especially one I visit so frequently. I had a full cart of groceries, and the store checkout clerk was annoyed I had so many, After the many sighs and looks of frustration he continued to ring out my groceries. Bagging them very roughly-crushing my bread, breaking my eggs etc. He was piling them so high on the belt because I needed a second cart he was unwilling to go get at first. Finally after I rebagged some of my own groceries and loaded both carts myself. He started scanning the next gentleman in line before I even had all my groceries bagged and in the carts. I’m assuming that’s why I got home missing some of my items. They didn’t want to help me out, I’m not sure how I was expected to push 2 full carts out myself??? I was almost in tears over the experience- I stopped at the service desk to ask who the manager on duty was and was told her name was Nicole- I asked them to let her know I would be calling I couldn’t wait in line because I had 10 minutes to pick up my daughter before child care closed.
After I got home and unpacked my groceries I went through my receipt I was missing several items, and also my bread was crushed- 3 eggs were broken etc. I called the store that evening and asked for the manager a gentleman named Chris got on the phone. I asked him if he was a manager because I was told Nicole was on duty. He said yes, I explained the experience he said he would have to watch the security tapes to see if I was missing my groceries etc. I told him that was fine, to please call me back and explained the situation and register I was at. I was happy for someone to review the tapes. He called back and said he couldn’t tell by the footage I was missing anything but could be possible because of my large order- and what did I want him to do???? Not really how I thought a manager would respond. I wanted my groceries I was missing and the items that were damaged to be replaced but more importantly wanted the customer service experience to be corrected! He said he would mail me a gift card for what he thought was fair. I told him I was approx missing 30-35$ in groceries and at least $10 in damages. I asked him more importantly to please call me back and follow up with the customer service side of things. I never received a phone call back at all, and got a gift card in the mail for $40.00 not even enough to cover loss and damages. NO CARD- no apology just a loose gift card in an envelope. I will also be writing corporate a letter. I am so disappointed in how I was treated after shopping so loyally for so long. After receiving the gift card with no follow up calls or cards- I will be joining SAMS club. I’m sure a different store would be happy to accept my weekly grocery expenses!!


Valuda Stout February 17, 2017 at 6:53 pm

Hi my name is Valuda Stout I worked at giant eagle in Blacklick, Oh
I was offered a position as cashier and I loved it but as you know our hours are part time only.. I was still looking for full-time and this was made aware to team-leader Carla- once I was offered a position for full time she became very angry and start treating me very disrespectful. I was hospitalized due to bowel obstruction and I kept calling her letting management know that I have been hospitalized for 5 days in 01-2017 and I brought my medical release doXXXXent. So at this time I showed my doXXXXent to Robert and he put it in my file and stated that I can re-turn back to work. I had worked that Wednesday and when I was scheduled to come back on Saturday team-leader Carla told me that I can not and she was not putting me back on the schedule until she speak with h.r.. I called to speak with her she stated that she did not have time to speak with me and kept hanging up on me. I kept going back to giant eagle trying to get on schedule but she refused and told me that I could not work today. I have proof that I kept coming back and forth . I did everything right she said I could not work what was I supposed to do if she tells me no.. Today I spoke with new h.r. Mederith and she stated that I was termed. So here I am asking you to please investigate these matters I believe just because you are team leader that don’t mean you abuse Giant Eagle employees under you we have to start some where. I loved my job and I am asking that please take a look into this matter.

Thank you


Don January 28, 2017 at 9:32 pm

I cant believe after spending over $1000 a month in your store #45 in Wexford Pa. I still have to bag my own groceries. I’m done with this it’s wrong and to watch employees walk around and do nothing to help is disgraceful. Maybe this is just one reason your store isn’t 24 hrs any longer. Oh I’m going else where now. Thanks for keeping WALMart out of my back yard. Abby is one of the girls walking around doing nothing but complaining she had to be back at work in 12 hours.


Giant Eagle January 18, 2017 at 12:31 pm

Hello Laura Karet, I work at the Kennedy Township Store 002 for over a decade and let me tell you the so called team leaders you have in control right now are running the place like a horrific prison and the employees are the prisoners with no chance of parole. If you look at Cindi Miller the wrong way or if you won’t kiss her a**, she’ll make your life a miserable hell. She has started rumors to cause confirmations between employees, she is nothing but a liar, taking anything you say and switching it up to making the other team leaders believe your out to cause trouble for them so their against you also. She has changed the rules to fit her agenda such as we can’t use the restroom unless we punch out, I believe that’s against the labor laws, and if anyone goes to the union they will be dismissed one way or the other, thats a direct quote from Cindi Miller and Anastasia. The two of them are putting the squeeze on us, we can’t do anything without sacrificing our jobs. Anastasia makes the schedule if you cross her or Cindi you’ll be working the late shifts and she cuts your hours. There’s new employees getting more hours then the employees with seniority, and god forbid if you question Anastasia your doing every sh*t job she can come up with (does anyone realize Anastasia has mental problems and were not just talking about her bipolar I mean she has some serious problems) you should hear how she talks to customers not just us the employees I’ve seen and heard Anastasia telling customers to shop somewhere else and telling them to leave the store or she’ll call the police and have them removed. Then there’s the new team leader Nick who knows nothing and does nothing except flirting and harassing the teenage girls, and if they don’t accept his sexual advances their singled out and in jeopardy of losing their jobs, don’t take my word on it go and ask some of them or check the complaints on him that’s if Cindi and Anastasia are doing their jobs correctly. There was a father of one of the girls who actually came into the store to warn Nick to quit harassing and making advances to his 17 year old daughter because she was scared and fed up with his advances, he a lawsuit waiting to happen or some father, brother, boyfriend is going to hurt him. The bottom line is you have a very serious problems with the leaders in your Kennedy store and its getting worse, your employees are being demoted, embarrassed, denied civil liberties, sexual harassing, and bullied and it seems like you’re letting them get away with all of it. I’m sure if you check with the union and some of us employees you will start to see the whole picture instead of the snapshots your receiving from Cindi Miller and as far as the other team leaders like Cindy Elliott, Barry, and Will the only decent one is Will, everyone else is a complete disaster a nuclear bomb waiting to explode.
A bunch of very disappointed and embarrassed employees!!!
I can’t believe Giant Eagle let’s this happen?


Ronald Shaffer December 16, 2016 at 10:27 am

Giant Eagle drugstore – Brunswick, OH

Ordered my monthly prescriptions as usual and due to a phone system change you cannot select the day you want your prescriptions. When talking to the Pharmacist he was extremely rude and told me that nothing can be done to fill any sooner than I was told. Very annoyed that their phone system change has to negatively affect customers and then to be treated like an idiot compounds their ignorance even more. These fpeople better learn there is plenty of competition and convenience does not always matter where poor customer service is concerned.


R Mary Griglak October 24, 2016 at 1:07 am

On Sunday October 23, 2016 my husband and I took our 2 year old grandchild to Cleveland’s Boo at the Zoo event.
She can go into anaphylactic shock from several things, her biggest trigger being peanuts. We all carry EpiPens where ever we go.
Here is my review that I have been posting.
In regards to your highly touted “safe, spooktacular fun-for-all-ages” Boo at the Zoo event.
We had arrived at the very first treat station. I am not sure what made me ask whether or not those granola type bars had peanuts in them. I was expecting an of course not, but instead the answer was yes!!! For a place that has designated the zoo to be smoke free, had it not occurred to anybody that peanut allergies among children are common???
If you choose to give out dangerous treats, you have the responsibility to at least give a disclosure and/or warning.
That treat could have killed my 2 year old grand daughter, I am absolutely outraged!!! As caretakers we are responsible to check the children’s treats, but I never ever imagined that the treats from public event catering to young children could be so potentially dangerous.
As we were headed back to the parking lot at the end of the event, I observed that same booth casually still giving out that same treat.
FYI, before we purchased our zoo membership last, I called them and had a lengthy discussion if and where a person might get exposed to peanuts at their facility.


Dennis Maneval October 2, 2016 at 12:49 pm

In May I made a complaint concerning a sign posted in the Uniontown, Ohio Market District Store that advertised NEW LOWER PRICE Bananas 52 cents. This was not a new lower price it had been this price for 6 months. The store refused to take the sign down, as well as corporate refused to contact me in a timely manner. Four months later I received a call from corporate apologizing for not contacting me sooner. I was told someone from the store would be in contact with me, still waiting. Giant Eagle engaged in false advertising and due to their care less attitude I have not shopped in a Giant Eagle store for 5 months.


Michele August 15, 2016 at 8:19 am

Went to the Giant Eagles in Maple Hts Ohio yesterday morning to purchase some meat. Why the first pack of meat was SPOILED N MILDEW. Return it back to the store for refund. I got another pack of meat. Open that pack it was spoiled n mildew. Took it right back for a refund. Why was I told they had a power outage that could be why the meat was spoiled. I’m shaking my damn head now. I will never shop at that store anymore.


Sean Smith August 7, 2016 at 3:58 pm

As follow up on my complaint.. the employees name is Jessica Fingerhoot ( not sure if that’s how you spell it though)


Sean Smith August 7, 2016 at 3:56 pm

My wife gets harassed by a employee at the Johnstown store located at 1233 Broad St 15906…. she has been targeted in the past and the store manager had to apologize … this time she was told by the same employee that she couldnt cash her coinstar slip unless she bought something from the store with the money… we already shop almost exclusively at this location. I am ready to go out of my way and shop at walmart if something isnt done about this… i know this lady steals from the store in addition to my complaint… if you have somebody keep an eye on her it won’t take you long to see that im telling the truth. Sent a complaint a couple days ago and wanted somebody to contact me by phone but that never happened. Thank you for you time and hope to continue shopping at giant eagle but will leave if i have to after 30+ years of shopping there.


Jon Pod February 15, 2017 at 10:57 pm

The Broad Street Johnstown PA store has gone down hill over the last few years! Primarily in the customer service dept. Vertrice Wilson and Sharon Guyan are the only workers left who really know how to treat a customer as a person, and not act like a “robot” spitting out “the new store policies” everytime you try and patronize the store.
Ardeen needs to retire since she’s pretty much brain dead, and Ryan just needs to go straight to hell!


Kristy K August 3, 2016 at 3:45 pm

Why does the drugstore want a copy of my doctors notes to complete my prior authorization for certain medications? Is that HIPPA compliant? I never signed anything for your pharmacist to view my medical chart. Why do you need it? No other drugstore has asked to view my medical records.


peggy paul June 30, 2016 at 12:13 pm

I am a long time shopper at the Giant Eagle at Brentwood Town Center. Lately every time I try to but some of favorite items, they have been discontinued. They only have a choice of 6 yoplait light flavors, today a worker told me that Giant eagle has discontinued them. Also instant quaker oatmeal cereal, Raisins and Spice. Wal Mart has a very good selection of yoplait and are 20 cents cheaper and they always carry Raisins and Spice.
What is going on? I woild like a response.

Ai received a letter in the mail with a receipt for items I purchased and a card with the service center managers number on it? This is the Monroeville Pa store mind you, said that I must have pushed a wrong button and that I didn’t pay for my purchase? I’ve never heard of that and bought they the authorities would have been running for me in the parking lot however, nothing of that sort happened. I just find it hilarious that they would even contact me about a glitch in THEIR system for $39.42. Wow!

Love my North Olmsted , Ohio Giant Eagle
I have a very important question I have to fill out a prescription for my 86year old Mom the prescription is from Puerto Rico, can it be fill out at my local drugstore?? insurance doesn’t cover it and is extremely expensive. GIant Eagle has the chepeast price with a discount card.
I will appreciate your response. Cotsco, CVS and Walgreens accepts it from PRbut their prices are much higher.

Thank You

Me and my co-worker stop at the Bridgeville GetGo every Friday evening. An employee by the name of Shaun (not sure of the spelling) is usually behind the counter. Last night he rang up the women’s coffee who was standing behind me after I told him we were not together. When I asked him to refund the price of her coffee, he said he couldn’t do it. When I insisted, he replied, “I don’t know what to tell you.” When I asked to see a manger, he said there was not a manger working. Then he said, “I don’t know why you’re making such a big deal about it.” I don’t know many people who would randomly by coffee for the person who was in line behind them. This employee obviously lacks people skills, and more importantly customer service skills. We see this employee often and he never smiles and looks like he hates his job. A little customer service training would go along way here.
I will be contacting the manager at the Bridgeville GetGo tomorrow and then the Corporate office on Monday morning.
Needless to say, I will buying my coffee at Sheetz.

Fellow veterans, take note; The American Legion is not allowed to offer “Poppies” to customers at the entrances to Giant Eagle in order to seek donations to help fund local veterans. Another example of a corporation turning their backs on the men and women who have served our country in the military.

I just quit for being bullied by another employee I worked with in the Gahanna Giant Eagle Deli. The first time it happened she stopped then started again. Doing things purposely. For someone that has been there for 8 years should be able to pass the food safety testing. I was there four months and passed with no problem. People that work there aren’t happy they should just quit. I seen things go on that go without being taken care of after I told them about things. I don’t think it is safe for customers when they can’t keep the dates right. Several people constantly do things they aren’t suppose to do and get away with it. But they don’t want to do anything because this person says everyone is being racist. which I witnessed and nothing of that sort happened. This person is always rude to customers. if they don’t like their job quit. Especially when they have a full time job. I didn’t complain about working 40 hours a week when I asked to only work 25 hours. Didn’t about asking for days off which I never got. I asked for days off for reasons like taking my dad to doctor appts or when I didn’t have a babysitter that day cause of my dads health. They lost a great worker to someone that isn’t passionate about their job like I was. Im sure someone else will appreciate having a good worker.

Went to the West Newton, Pa Giant Eagle. Bought buy one get one frozen steaks because ON THE DOOR OF THE FREEZER it said what the deal was. Correct item, correct size. After 5 to 8 minutes and 2 employees waiting on me and 2 checking the sign on the door, they came to the conclusion that someone that worked there was at fault and , sorry it was the ones with the Philly Steak in it. That’s NOT what the sign said. So I got nothing. Sorry, Giant Eagle West Newton, you just lost a customer.


j November 18, 2015 at 10:31 pm

went to the store[STOW OHIO 44224] wrote a check. have a keychange scan fob cashier had a problem head cashier said we do not have account and cannot write checks. I am a signer on my parents checking account. head cashier [a^&%$ole] said my name should be on the check, who is that a^&%#$ole to tell me or my parents what name should be on there checks when the bank [all banks] have signers on checks that there name does not appear on the check. had two arms full of items hot and cold foods and told him I will never be back to any giant eagle. THIS IS HOW GIANT EAGLE CUSTOMER SERVICE HANDLES CUSTOMERS. I will wait for your reply and will post on the local social media with the compliant and it will be better to go with the local grocer every time.


Sandy Davidson November 17, 2015 at 2:28 pm

I purchased barbecue sauce in September which was rancid. Contacted customer service numerous times through e-mail and phone. Was told they are super busy and will return my call soon. Never happened. One call from claims which I missed and called right back just to get an answering machine again and leave a message. Giant Eagle does not care about its customers one bit. I stopped shopping there and I will be sure to let my family and friends know how bad I was treated. A $10 refund was worth losing a customer. I used to spend a lot a Giant Eagle now I will go out of my way just to not shop there Customer service is huge to me I will shop somewhere they value their customers not like Giant Eagle who can give two sh*** about their customers.


S. Giska November 10, 2015 at 7:06 pm

As a longtime shopper at GE in Hermitage Pa, I was frustrated to see another revamp of the store and relocation of all the items. It is not just because it takes three times longer to shop until you get used to where products cats are, but the location of many items makes no sense… is much more XXXXbersome. Of course, cost of my grocery bill went up. If you think smart consumers don’t notice when the price of a particular item goes up, you are wrong. Even the sales try to mislead in some instances. As far as sales, one example I can give is about coffee sales. We look forward to coffeee sales, because we stock up. Since the store has been revamped, when coffee goes on sale, it is often for just one type of a name brand …ex. Folgers..only Country Roast is on sale..that is it. We drink 1/2 Caf. In the past, all flavors have been on sale. We have a super Walmart I our town, and name brands are always much cheaper than at GE. I have begun buying more and more products there. In the long run, the gas perks do not make up for the significan increase in my grocery bill due to your increased cost of items….because you once again had to revamp the stores. How about this? Stop “improving” the store because you are just making it worse.


Sean cleary October 25, 2015 at 4:34 pm

hi I was wondering what disciplinary actions were going to be taken for the Verona Getgo store manager for denying help to the senior citizen by denying him access to the restrooms? then to further embarrass the elderly gentleman waited until the man urinated himself then called the police to further embarrass him. I and all the people who I’ve discussed this with would like to know what if any disciplinary actions there will be? thankyou from a former Verona GetGo customer.


thomas adXXXX October 21, 2015 at 9:03 am

not all gaint eagle stores are the same different rules for different stores why sad that there are different rules. why again


RebCind October 19, 2015 at 6:26 pm

Third message to the bot that could care less about me… Fine. Don’t even bother contacting me back about this message at this point. I have been a customer of Giant Eagle since 1983. That’s 32 years. I am no longer a customer of Giant Eagle. My last time there was 9/14/2015. My husband’s last time there was 9/29/2015. I had sent an “email” on 9/29 asking for someone to contact me about my message. I also sent a Facebook message. Nobody contacted me! Your grass fed steaks are a joke. We paid $50 for two steaks that were inedible too many times! Your produce sucks too! Last night, I opened refrigerated dog treats that I purchased on one of my last trips to Robinson Market District (my regular shopping place since it opened) and they were moldy throughout. Guess what? We have found out that Shop N Save carries Lowe’s gift cards! My husband is a contractor and started purchasing Home Depot gift cards at Giant Eagle when you stopped carrying Lowe’s cards! We thought that we would miss you. Instead, we have discovered Aldi and we are enjoying fuel credits through Shop N Save. PNC, as big as it is, even addressed my anger over their sponsorship of the Steelers. You sponsor them even though they have a dog murderer on their team (vick) and you continue to have Monday night players in Market District. PNC doesn’t host Monday night Steelers events like Giant Eagle does, but they called me back to tell me how important I am to them. Guess what, I am still a customer of PNC. I am also no longer a customer of Nationwide because they also sponsor the Steelers. They didn’t even have moldy and horribly overpriced food! I will copy the thoughts that I have put here today because I promise you that these will reach your headquarters. I know that nobody reading this on your contact-us form cares even a little bit about what I think of your horrible and uncaring store.


Sandy davidson November 17, 2015 at 10:27 am

You story sounds very familiar. I also had a problem in September sold me rancid barbecue sauce and I wrote to them and call numerous times. They could care less about you and me. I also refuse to shop there and I will let my friends and contacts know exactly how they treat their customers.
You said it well…. I know that nobody reading this on your contact-us form cares even a little bit about what I think of your horrible and uncaring store.


Tim McDonald October 18, 2015 at 12:36 am

They eliminated the coffee grinder that was in coffee section .In my opinion to create more room for other brands of coffee. I have been buying Eight O’clock for years . Several flavors are whole been only that is in the a 3 lb bags. Your other stores in Titusville,Pa. and Franklin still have their coffee grinder.. Have placed them in a near by area in relation to the coffee section. . I have inquired at Oil City with the MGR. and also several employees to no avail.Franklin has a sign in the coffee section. tried to send the photo but would not attach.. ” the sign says.. TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS the coffee grinder is at the Deli.. If you need any assistance see one of our team. We will be glad to help.. That is the kind of care we should have in Oil City.. Tim McDonald ;I have contacted you before in this manner to no avail… I guess there are other grocers in the area Walmart, Thorne’s, Shop and Save, Aldi grocer


Lee October 14, 2015 at 8:44 pm

Why is it that my best friend was called an N-Word by a white employee and that employee who spoke with hate and rage was transferred instead of terminated. What is your policy if you are white and work for Giant Eagle you can say the N-Word? As a billion dollar corporation I thought your standards about the use of such language would not be tolerated. Thanks for shopping at Giant Eagle you save and get called N-Words at the same time. I’ve spent lots of money with you but me my family and Friends will go to another source for our food!


carol October 11, 2015 at 10:03 pm

I would like to know why your white oak, n. Versailles irwin giant eagle are no longer selling minute maid half gallon low acid orange juice I have inquired at these stores but just get a run around so I have now been shopping at Walmart I would like to know why


Michael Kugel October 6, 2015 at 7:09 pm

How is it possible when you buy a whole chicken, fried or roasted its 6.99. When buying fried chicken by the piece, Glenshaw, Wexford, Pine creek and a few others charge .99 a piece but the Giant Eagle close to me in McIntyre charged me for 3 thighs of fried chicken 6.63. When I asked the manager I was told all Giant Eagles are different. I think I’m just going to contact the Attorney General.


Angel October 5, 2015 at 9:27 pm

A friend of mine experienced this outrageous behavior today at your GetGo store on Allegheny River Blvd in Verona, PA. These are her words, verbatim.

What has happen to society!! I am all ok with policies and understand why but also believe there is some times you bend the rules or compromise. I stopped in at Verona GetGo this morning. While pouring my coffee and elderly man came in asking to use a rest room clearly rushed and distraught. It was an emergency he said and needed a restroom right away. The clerks directed him to go across the street to Blondies Bar. He said several more times he needed to restroom immediately and would not make it anywhere else. The manager came from the back threatening to call the police if he did not leave. This poor man turned an began shuffling just as urine began running down his leg all while the employees and manager are yelling for him to leave. He slowly shuffled out the door leaving a trail behind him. As he stood out side his car wetting himself the manager sent another employee out to tell him that if he did not leave immediately and stop urinating in the parking lot which clearly he had not control over she was calling the police. Which she actually did end up doing. Another customer came in and told the employees that that was completely unacceptable. Now this was not some teen, drunk or obnoxious customer. And I get the customer is not allowed behind the counter for safety reasons but when am elderly person is practically in tears begging to use a restroom how do you threaten to call the police all because he didn’t want to have an accident in his pants.


chuck parfitt August 29, 2015 at 3:17 pm

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.


Courtney Speir August 21, 2015 at 4:36 pm

Hi I was was a previous employee at the Giant Eagle drugstore 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.


Andrea August 16, 2015 at 2:05 pm

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.


Les DeJulio July 29, 2015 at 9:08 pm

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.


Ruby July 25, 2015 at 2:10 pm

Slippery Rock, PA Patron May 27, 2015 at 12:50 pm

Giant Eagle Feedback

After the horrible way the Slippery Rock store is ran with their, “ha ha, we’re the only store in town, so we don’t have to take care of our customers” attitude, I hope every Giant Eagle is overran by Super Walmart stores!

They have moved hundreds of items WITH NO INTERIM SIGNAGE, NO SENSE OF URGENCY, and NO APOLOGIES. I’ve personally experienced and watched, out of desperation and frustration, when fellow customers have asked an employee MULTIPLE times ” where an item is” and the employees honestly have no problem answering the question with the reply, “I DON’T KNOW” and end it at that!!!! …and these employees do NOT even TRY to get an answer from another employee or member of management OR HELP THE CUSTOMER FIND THE ITEM!!!! I realize these are young college students, but the Giant Eagle Corporation SHOULD BE TEACHING THESE EMPLOYEES HOW TO TREAT THEIR CUSTOMERS!

Early in my career, I was taught the virtue that you NEVER use the phrase “I don’t know” and leave it at that. If you don’t know, you tell them YOU WILL FIND OUT…and you do! You do find out and you help that customer or you return their call. It’s called INTEGRITY, GOOD BUSINESS PRACTICE, and general common courtesy!!!

MANAGEMENT: I’ve also watched the skinny guy in a shirt and tie with the salt & pepper colored hair (WHO LOOKS LIKE A MANAGER) “cower” behind the customer service desk and not move or utter a word when a customer CLEARLY needs assistance or the lines are extremely long. I’m in this store all the time, because it’s our only choice in Slippery Rock, and this man NEVER says hello to me or other customers. He comes across as SMUG and unfriendly…NOT the way a manager should behave and NOT the way Giant Eagle should want their company represented.


Ted May 11, 2015 at 6:29 pm

My son-in-law used our Giant Eagle to get GetGo gas. He bought around $14 worth of gas and the dummy used the perks of $140 I’ve been saving so I can get my 30 gallon. My perks are now gone because of his mistake, I get that. I called corporate (Tammy) to see if they would put my perks back on my card. They said NO. I said all I want is my perks back that I’ve been building for so long. Still NO. They said you have used the $140 off on the $14 gas purchase. I said all you have to do is put my perks back on my card and subtract the perks that were used on the $14 gas purchase and I’ll be happy. Still NO. Why do you want to be so uncooperative and now loose me as a life long customer??? You loose nothing on the deal, I just don’t get why you don’t want to be more helpful.

Robert Gardnee April 12, 2015 at 3:33 pm

For 15 years I had worked tooth and nail for your company until yesturday during a 15 hr shift I was fired for “STEALING” along with 7 other people and more to come. Since market district began at store 47 customer service this customer service service, service, service. We were forced year after year to take customer service classes, how to make someone’s life better, how to build a life long relationship, how to be this how to do that we’ll wrong. See in the beverage department when we first began, Mark Larimer decided it would be nice to ring up groceries there. That created a huge mess. All those customers that wanted coffee well stopped coming in for obvious reasons GROCERIES. Well 3 failed beverage bars later you bring in Starbucks. FAIL! Us employees took a bet how long it would last. I was generous and gave it a year. See starbucks is a coffee shop or was until you bring it into giant eagle. Those people who want a coffee well had to wait in line for the 8 customers that don’t know how to read the 5 items or less sign. By the time the customers wants his coffee well he is now pissed. What did we learn from years of customer service classes??? Then you have the hecklers in the back of the line wanting to ring out his gallon of milk telling us to hurry up because he doesn’t have time. So not only do the coffee drinkers feel uncomfortable, I do too and I have to rush them. When the customer is finally getting his milk order taking care of even though he passed 40 registers that person is yelling at you well customer service is what we’re taught. Year after year you made these customers criminals, I want a get to yes for this I want a get to yes for that wine wine wine. I was even threatened by a customer on March 18th stating he was going to reckon my world he’s law enforcement. When I asked if that was a threat he said he was law enforcement it’s a promise. You do realize that’s a federal crime impersonation of a police officer? Not only did he get his lunch free he got free coffee and in the meantime nothing happened to him. On April 8th my manager reported to me that the customer walked around the department for a out 5 minutes looking for me and even looked in the back to see if I was there. So not only did you have a workplace that’s dangerous I had to report it to the cops as well nothing happened their because it’s up to the company. I was fired for stealing? I asked for video and he couldn’t provide it. I asked to see the papers in his hands and he said no. I asked what I was discounting and all he said was specialty drinks. I asked what kind and he couldn’t provide any details. I told him people make mistakes I wait on several hundred people a day in that dept. He said well they were intentional mistakes? Why providing customer service like the company drilled us into doing? Each and everyday I came into work busted my ass, worked all the overtime that you asked for and I did missing out on a lot of things. I even trained Dave Shapiro at store 34 so he could move on to run the company. Why would I destroy my job if I knew I was going to get fired? You have people stealing time daily, you have managers doing drugs out in the parking lot getting busted and keeping their jobs, you have managers getting busted have sexual relations in the parking lot and keep their jobs, you have managers that help discount for friends and family, you have managers straight up help employees and friends steal, you have corporate buying certain items for $2.99lbs when I went back to the meat dept it was $19.99lbs. I seem employees doing carts sit in the break room for half hour plus on the clock and brag and for management say it was ok. It’s sad what your company came to. It’s used to be fun and exciting but went to the crapper. I know corporate America is like that but no wander Whole Foods are beating you guys. Really??


Vivian Burks April 1, 2015 at 7:37 pm

A couple of months ago my husband took some clothes to the cleaners at the Dublin Granville Rd location. When he went to pick up the clothes, he received four hangers and one hanger was empty. His shirt was missing. He filed a complaint with the store and a week later I filed one too. No one has tried to contact us, not even to apologize for the terrible ordeal. The bottom line is, it seems as if they don’t care. It was an expensive shirt that I gave him for Christmas 2014. One of the workers told me that they lost one of her clothing but they found hers of course. Needless to say I’m looking for another Dry Cleaners. I’m about to call Channel 6 news. This is ridiculous! The President of the company needs to know all about the poor customer service at this store.


Teresa Duck March 31, 2015 at 11:26 am

I was employed with G.E. from Aug.1975 – Sept.1995, I have been trying to get information on my 401k for over 3 wks. I’ve spoken to Dianna in HR, who gave me the retirement fund number to call. I spoke with a gentleman who said I needed an employee number. i called Dianna back and she gave me that number, when I called back I spoke with Dorothy and said I just wanted info on my retirement plan/401k, she said I needed both birth cert. from me and my husband and a marriage license, i said just for info she said yes, after waiting the week and a half for the doXXXXents to come back, i called her and she said I wasn’t old enough for my pension and she couldn’t help me with the 401k, all that for nothing. I was then rerouted to several other phone numbers with no success. Now when I call and get the 401k dept. I spoke with Eric who now needs a Plan ID #. I called HR back and she’s not sure what that means but she’s going to look into it and call me back. I hope in writing this E-mail to corporate I will get results and be able to move on until I retire. Your response will be appreciated. Thank you.


What, so you can riddicule me? March 31, 2015 at 8:27 am

Laura Karet
John Lucot

Once again I must write to admonish you on poor business practices. It seems that when ordering hash browns, they are now by default cooked in the deep fryer. This is a doXXXXented change from about a year or so ago when the hash browns were by default cooked in the oven right along with the sandwich sausage and eggs. Now, to get hash browns cooked in the oven, I must specifically ask each time I order. This is getting rather annoying. Switch the default back the way it was. Or put a choice on the order entry screens.
This business of specifically training your GetGo food preparers, by default, to deep fry all frozen items for the only reason that it saves time is not in the best interest of serving your customers. The Kitchen Lead with whom I spoke this morning at the Shaler GetGo told me this was the corporate mandate; that because the potatoes are frozen they take twice as long to cook in the oven as in the deep fryer. Really, if this is the only motivation, Giant Eagle clearly does not have the health of their customers as a primary concern. In fact, I have noticed relatively little difference in the time it take my order to be ready whether I let them fry the spuds or force them to be baked.
You already reduced the number of times I visit your stores by eliminating my favorite morning beverage, SoBe Citrus Energy. I will further reduce my visits if the potato issue is not corrected.
Please fix this! I am going to wait quite a while until I attempt to order hash browns again from GetGo. When/if I encounter it again I will be sure to spread the word about this un-healthy practice via all the channels to which I have access. I work in the health care industry, so I’m sensitive about health-related issues. This issue affects everyone who eats these potatoes. I feel I would be doing a community service by informing as many people as I can.
No, I’m not going to tell you my name this time! It doesn’t seem to make a difference anyway. I never do receive responses to these communications.


Dick Blownoff April 16, 2015 at 3:49 pm

I too agree with this customer. I love to wash down my sausage and egg breakfast sandwich with a SoBe Citrus energy. My doctor tells me that I shouldn’t drink that anymore as it will make my diabetes worse. You see, the GetGo by my house still carries it! I have complained to management numerous times that I cannot drink it anymore as it is bad for me and they just tell me not to buy it anymore! As if I should be responsible for my own decisions! As a corporation Giant Eagle is not looking out for my health! Why should I have to look at my favorite drink (SoBe citrus energy) in the cooler every morning and be responsible enough to avoid it on my own! Typical corporate America just looking to line their pockets. I don’t care that people like the drink, I can’t have it because I have diabetes and therefore you shouldn’t carry it! I cannot be held responsible for my own actions! I try telling this to my GetGo and they won’t listen! No, I’m not going to tell you my name this time! It doesn’t seem to make a difference anyway. I never do receive responses to these communications.


Paula Stepanski December 1, 2016 at 4:31 pm

I was an early morning customer at the Southland store in Middleburg Hts, Ohio. At 5:45 this morning I got in line behind 4 other customers. The cashier, a man approx 59 yrs old, was extremely rude. A customer was having an issue that his sale items were not ringing properly and it aggitated the cashier to the point that he finished that customer he walked away and clocked out and left 7 of us standing in line with no cashier. Fortunately about 7 minutes later a young lady by the name of Cathy who has been working nights for a number of years came out of the aisle and saw the line and cashed us all out. She was very apologetic. I will never step foot in that store again.

Be aware that Giant Eagles weekly deal like this weeks 99 cent card did not give the 99 cent credit. On returning to the store #5844, they said they only could give me the 99 cents back but they had to take the card back. So I left and contacted GE thru their contact us site. They responded that they put $1.00 on my GE card. So I guess they think the 1 penny would make me happy. I spent more than that on gas. Now I am really pissed off with this store. What great customer service, Laura Karet the CEO should care about these mistakes by the company she is running.

DO NOT BUY ANY CAKES FROM Giant Eagles… PLEASE READ!!! This last weekend of March 14 & 15 2015. I wanted to purchase a cake from giant eagle because they did an excellent job last year at my daughters birthday cake. I brought them a napkin which just had circles on it of different colors and they Matched it perfectly it was so beautiful I almost cried BUT THIS YEAR… she turned three so I called them because of the great cake that I had last year not just the decorating but also the taste and they said they could not do any cake whatsoever unless it was from the book that sat outside of the bakery. REALLY.. this was at the Columbus Ohio stringtown Road giant eagle. All I asked them to do was copy the napkin again and all it was was stars. I was so put off that they could not do it and second the woman in the bakery was so so rude inconsiderate and very disrespectful when she talk to me I will never shop at that bakery ever again or any other bakery and I will let everybody know I did buy my cake from Kroger and I will continue to buy my cakes at Kroger and it was Great. They went above and beyond hospitality and also presentation. I am so upset with the customer service I received or better yet did not receive. I hope you take time to read this so maybe you won’t have to make the same mistake I did and waste your time.

I bought the best ground meat that Giant Eagle sells in their Chardon Ohio Store, The meat on top looked good but when you opened the package it had brown streaks of rotten meat ground in and covered by fresh meat. I called “Frank” the Manager and was told that the brown meats was just because meat got oxygen during grinding. Funny none of the brown scrap was on the top of the package only inside.

Do not buy meat at Giant Eagle in Chardon, Ohio. I have pictures if anybody is interested


chip June 23, 2015 at 5:50 pm

Frank was right the leaner the ground beef the quicker it will turn brown as u said inside the outside stays bright because of the oxygen hitting it the leaner it is the less fat there is for oxygen to get inside. Want proof talk to your butcher ask for a pound of their leanest and a pound of their fattest grinds to be ground at the same time put into the refrigerator over night check the next day see with is brighter on the inside


Denny Watson December 23, 2014 at 10:28 pm

I have been trying to use your email program and it doesn’t work. I have been trying to ask you why you feel you should be entitled to the person information on the back of my PA drivers license when I try to buy beer at one of your stores. My information indicates that that info is for law enforcement only! I showed my ID per your request, but the data on the back of my drivers license is none of your business. P,ease respond.


Beth December 2, 2014 at 7:22 pm

I have been trying to tell you about a faulty product with your name on it for an hour now! I typed and typed my advantage card number, complaint, e-mail address etc… numerous times. When I hit enter it does nothing. I entered the UPC code on the product with a description. Still nothing. WHATEVER! Done with your store til I can get results


Patterson December 2, 2014 at 10:17 am

Shame on you all. Why do you keep raising prices,??the Massillon Ohio store has gained many new customers with the closing of food for less, and still your corporate office chooses to realign the stores aisles and remove goods that have been available for years. And then they charge More for same . Oh, let’s not forget the incorrect charges on receipts,,Shame on you, , I will not be giving you our money. 800 a month you lost, from ONE customer. Get a clue. I don’t care if anyone from GE gets or reads this, at this point you’ve lost this customer


E. Hunter November 25, 2014 at 7:48 pm

I just want to compliment two of your employees that work at the Bethel Park location. Lynn and Joyce who work at the Customer Service desk are knowledgeable, polite and helpful. They are a rarity in these days of ‘customer-no-service’. I wish everyone working with the public had their attitude.


what October 30, 2014 at 3:17 pm

….You people. Holy crap. Everyone posting on here with sob stories and demanding GE to call them back? This page isn’t even an official page owned by Giant Eagle. We’re on // Not a single person in charge of this site cares about how high you think the prices are at the pharmacies, or about the one time you yelled at an employee until they rudely asked you to leave without giving you free crap. Hell, if you were on the corporate site, not a single person there would care either because that’s like yelling at the federal government about your township trustees raising taxes.

Try to use your heads a bit before you go crying to someone with your heightened sense of entitlement.


Thomas M. Mernone October 30, 2014 at 11:49 am

My wife and I went to the new Giant Eagle Market Day store in Strongsville, Ohio. There were fliers with a coupon for $1.worth of gas at their Get Go gas stations with a transferred drug prescription. I had dropped off a refill prescription at another drug store before we decided to stop. Well, after I dropped off a different refill, at the Giant Eagle drugstore, the Pharmacist called me over and said “are you just trying to get free gas with your prescription”? It seemed that the other drug store had just called to verify the transferred prescription I had just previously dropped off. He told me ” those free gas coupons are TO GET NEW CUSTOMERS, NOT JUST FOR FREE GAS”. So I guess ” us OLD CUSTOMERS ” can’t take advantage.of the coupons for $1. off gas!!
Well, the next day, the coupons were gone from the fliers.. So, doesn’t Giant Eagle want repeat business on prescriptions?


RJ October 26, 2014 at 7:37 pm

Re: Manager Michael Kuzmirek

Had the most humiliating “customer service” experience EVER in my short 36 years at this GetGo location on Sunday, October 26, 2014 at approximately 5:00 pm.
Attempted to put gas in my car on pump #9. Tried to use my USAA American Express card and my payment declined. I have about $2,000 available on that card. Tried to use my USAA Visa credit card and my payment declined. I have about $800 available on that card. Tried to use my First Commonwealth Bank debit card and my payment declined. I have a little under $800 on that card. No HUGE deal because I also had about $500 in cash in my pocket. I entered the building and paid CASH for my gas and alerted the cashier of a potential problem with the card reader at pump #9. End of story, or so I thought. I returned to my car and pumped $25 in gas and went to start the car and pull off when I noticed a text alert on my phone. It was from USAA American Express alerting me of the fact that pump #9 attempted to authorize my card for $129 in gas. I returned to the building and said to the female cashier “The plot thickens” and I told her what happened. She then called for Michael the “manager”. I told Michael what happened from the start, beginning with the fact that 3 of my cards declined. His response was not what I expected. “That has nothing to do with us. That’s between you and your bank” at which time I replied with “I actually have about 7 years of banking experience including 2 as a branch manager and I know that’s not true”. That machine not only declined 3 completely unrelated methods of payment but it also authorized my card for a substantial amount. I laid all 3 cards down on the counter to show him the 3 payment methods used to show him the LOCAL debit card from First Commonwealth Bank versus the USAA Amex and the USAA Visa (3 unrelated cards) that all declined. I ALREADY HAD MY GAS and at no point was I upset about anything. My “f.y.i.” was just that. AN F.Y.I. He kicked me out!
Michael asked me to leave at which time I responded with “Not exactly the response that I expected” and I did ask if he was in CUSTOMER SERVICE. He then threatened to call the cops. At that time, there were about 5 cop cars from Pittsburgh’s Zone 3 parked on the left side of the building and I did inform Michael that he didn’t have to call and that the cops were right outside and one just so happened to be a lieutenant that I’ve known since childhood who knows that I would NEVER be the cause of a disturbance ANYWHERE. I left the building and Michael told me that I am no longer welcome in that store. All of THAT because of a “oh by the way, your machine is malfunctioning”???????? Is that what’s being taught to your management team and your staff? Did customers in your establishment need to witness that treatment of another customer? I work as a manager at a nearby restaurant. Customer issues and concerns are usually followed by a “I do apologize for any inconvenience sir. I will do what I can to rectify the problem” EVEN IF THE CUSTOMER IS WRONG! In this case, I wasn’t wrong about ANYTHING pertaining to my 3 cards declining. With cash on hand, it was not an issue for me as I pumped my gas and pulled off. But to treat me as if I tried to steal something from the store when I was only doing your establishment a favor by alerting the manager on duty of a problem with the system? Was Michael threatened because an African American customer expressed a concern? Maybe it was the 4 gold chains on my neck that led him to believe that I was in his store for confrontation? Knowing that I have a bank branch management background, a hotel front office management background, a bar management background AND a bachelors degree in accounting from Duquesne University may have allowed him to look beyond my skin color and the 4 gold chains on my next. I’m a born and raised PITTSBURGHER and I can honestly say that I’ve never EVER felt discriminated against in a business until this evening. Michael Kuzmirek will NOT have to worry about me entering his store ever again. The same level of “calm” on display throughout this email is the same level of “calm” that I displayed in your store this evening with the same level of articulation. A person in customer service at the managerial level should be able to react and respond IN THE SAME MANNER. His reaction was over the top and uncalled for. There’s no doubt in my mind that he treated me this way BECAUSE of my skin color. A college educated BLACK man with cold hard cash in his pocket, a debit card, an American Express card AND a Visa credit card. Unheard of, right?


Lauran Webb November 22, 2014 at 3:06 pm

You should talk to the corp office 412-963-6200. Don’t let that die! If you swipe oyur card at the pump a lot of banks hold $100 for 3 days. Swipe you card at the counter – no problems.


Antonio Brooks October 19, 2014 at 2:32 pm

I was hired at the Get Go in Warrensville Heights, OH at the Richmond and Miles Road intersection on October 5th, 2014. I passed my background check and was given an orientation date of October 29, 2014 but on October 17th, I was called and told I failed my background check. This is weird to me because I do not have a criminal record at all. I’ve never been arrested, sent to jail, had a speeding ticket or owe a loan and when I asked what came up, I was told the information was confidential and couldn’t be given out


Melanie October 9, 2014 at 3:47 pm

On 10/9/2014 at the Giant eagle drugstore in Northern Cambria, PA my daughter tried to get a prescription filled and the staff at the drugstore treated her very rude and were very ignorant to her. She had another prescription filled there about 2 weeks ago but because she just recently moved to this area she had to change addresses and they closed out the one address but opened the new address. so when the clerk processed her claim it showed that it was inactive. my daughter immediately went out and called her provider and confirmed that she was covered. She went back in and told the clerk again and told her that she was to call in and they would confirm her coverage. the clerk argued with my daughter and would not call the insurance. My other daughter had a bad experience there also, when she went in to ask about the insulin program advertised by Giant Eagle drugstore. At that time the staff were rude and ignorant to her. She changed drugstore’s and has not gone back to the Giant Eagle drugstore in Northern Cambria, PA. Myself, I use the Giant Eagle drugstore in Altoona, PA and have never had a problem with staff there. Why are the drugstore employees so nasty in Northern Cambria?????


marie October 3, 2014 at 3:35 pm

This is about the North Huntingdon, PA Giant Eagle. The store is in the process of changing all the aisles and their contents. I was told this was to bring all the food items to the front of the store. It seemed to me that all the food items ran nicely before from one end to the other with paper products toward the back. There was a card/gift/wrapping paper and seasonal section near the front of the store. This worked nicely because the fresh flowers, etc.. is in the front, too. Now they have this big, obstructive display of cards plopped right across from the cold display for juice. It is aesthetically unappealing. It just looks terrible. The displays for the stationary items just seemed to be placed willy nilly – wherever there was room. No rhyme or reason. Add to this the fact that there isn’t enough room for the food they moved to the front of the store. Everything seems so jammed and it doesn’t make sense. It has made my shopping difficult and I will look to buy the majority of my groceries elsewhere.


Jessica September 30, 2014 at 7:54 pm

Had my daughter at the dr at 6:15. Out of the dr by 6:45 dr called in script to giant eagle drugstore in rochester pa. Get there at 7:15 to pick up they tell me 45 minutes is the process. I said it takes 2 minutes to run through online and 2 minutes to fill it it, my 3 year old is in the car with a 104 fever and strep throat, she said she couldn’t fill it any sooner. I worked in retail drugstore for 7 years I know the process and I know how long it takes to fill a prescription. In my eyes I had a sick child and politely asked to fill her script right away and was told NO!! That is terrible customer service! I will never use this drugstore again and I will be calling corporate office 1st thing in the morning when they open.


A November 18, 2014 at 11:46 am

Some people have already been waiting, you know. You’re not special. And if your kid is that sick that she couldn’t wait for medicine, she should have been in the hospital. You can’t ask politely for something and then get mad when they say no. That doesn’t count as polite.


tiffany September 21, 2014 at 9:54 am

The drugstore in the shoregate plaza in willowick, Oh is awful. They are incompetent idiots,and they literally steal your prescriptions. I will never ever take a script there again.


Donna September 16, 2014 at 6:58 pm

I live in the Cleveland Ohio area and just got a circular in the mail today about a produce BOGO sale and it says the dates are: “Sunday, September 18 through Thursday, September 21 only”. I had to read it like 4 times because September 18 – at least in 2014, is on a THURSDAY!!!! Nothing is more aggravating than trying to figure out what dates you really mean! I can’t believe someone let this go to print. Crazy!


Annoyed September 2, 2014 at 8:45 pm

I don’t understand why the deli is open until 9:00 PM but yet at 7 PM they have all but one slicer cleaned and the two employees that are suppose to be waiting on the customers act as if they are doing YOU a favor. And heaven forbid if you’d want something sliced a different way then what they have “in the case”. What happened to Customer Satisfaction?


William O'Connor August 26, 2014 at 1:48 pm

Hi There, I would like to share a very unhappy experience I had at your Cranberry Twp. Giant Eagle on Rt 19. On Wed. evening, 8/20/2014, I went into your and proceeded to go to the Customer Service Counter to purchase a weekly Port Authority Bus Pass. I arrived at about 7:00pm. I was getting this bus pass for my wife, whom was putting her car in the shop to be worked on for the week of 8/25/2014 and was staying over our daughters house. I was very explicit with the associate at the counter when I went in, to tell her I needed the bus pass for the week of 8/25/2014. On Monday AM, my wife goes to get on the bus to find out that her bus pas didn’t work. We make a call up to the Cranberry Giant Eagle, to be told, that the card was only good for the previous week. I call and speak to Customer Svc. Mgr. Michelle, who informs me of this info. I tell her I asked for the pass for the week of the 25th and that’s what I was given. She informs me, that they’re not given out for the next week until the Thursday prior and her associates know better. I explained to her, I know what I asked for and I knew when my wife’s car was being worked on. She said her associates knew better then to do that. 1) Why would I purchase a bus pass for only 3-days. You can see from the numbers it was never used. 2) She-Michelle tells me this is between you and Port Authority. No this error was done by your employee, All they had to do was say sir we don’t issue the following week until Thursday. I’m out $25.00, she can’t help. My wife had to pay $5.00 to get to work on that Monday AM and I had to get her a new card. This is not how you handle a customer. I’m in Mgt. well aware of how things should be handled. This isn’t about the money I’m out this is about right and wrong. You tell me this is between me and Port Authority yet your employee made the error. You fix the problem and move on. Thanks for your time

I had put in an order for a wedding cake 3 weeks before my wedding date. I was told that as long as the delivery fee was paid before the wedding day, then it would be delivered to me. I asked when they preferred to get payment and they said up to a day before. I went 3 days before my wedding to see and pay for the cake and I was told that they did NOT do it due to non payment. THIS IS A HUGE INCONVENIENCE especially since my wedding is 3 days away. And I was also lied to. Nobody should pay for something before seeing it.

Hi I frequently go to the new getgo in Elizabeth pa. I love it but the only thing missing is a American flag on the premises. Such a great American company not flying our colors. Hope to see 1 soon. Could make a big difference in in a nice little patriotic town. Thank u.

charles June 30, 2014 at 7:01 pm

Hello I but lots of fuel from you getgo location because of the convenience. But lately with you having gas at the diesel pumps which there is only 2 out of all 20 plus pumps. Regular gas cars are taking and sitting wile shopping in side. You are losing customers daily over this when I talk to other drivers they are stopping going there do to this exact reason. Your fix would be to just shut off or remove your Gass from these 2 pumps. But I do understand when you are buzzy but the little extra those ppl would have to wait for would not out way the wait for a diesel vehicle and the once you are losing daily .

Linda Sellers August 21, 2014 at 4:19 pm

Wow, I thought it was just my Bedford store. I was there today and being in a wheelchair I needed help with something heavy. I asked but didn’t get it. In fact, the employee told me it wasn’t his job. Giant Eagle simply DOES NOT CARE about its customers. They care about its customer’s money and their yearly profits.


K June 26, 2014 at 11:17 am

I stopped shopping at Giant Eagle for the most part. I get better deals at Acme, and their fuel perks ever expire. I am tired of supposed to be getting 30 gallons of gas when my car only holds 14! I should be able to exhaust the 30 gallons before the fuel perks expire.

Sad, that your CEO on TV only cares about money and not her customer base. I am just glad that I have another grocery store so close to me.


J Brinkerhoff June 16, 2014 at 5:25 pm

I want to commend the Giant Eagle store in Chesterland, Ohio. They have expanded their organic fruits and vegetables selection and, most important to me and others who prefer antibiotic and hormone-free meat, they carry the largest selection of Nature’s Basket pork, beef and chicken! This store manager is awesome. The Bainbridge and Solon stores could definitely take some lessons from him. Please keep the Natures Basket meats coming – from the bacon to the London Broil, these are the best of the best!

Thank you for all your fine Natures Basket products.

i went to use my gas perks at getgo on route 51 and i fill my tank up and started to fill some gas cans wish i could use in my lawnmowers and they cut me off and i ask why they said i double pump or whatever but i told them that i was filling gas cans up and they said that they was not sure if i could do that and i thought that you can i got a little over 16 gallons from the 30 i suppose to have got to me i think that it is pointless to shop here if i can not get what i was earn it’s almost like giant eagle stole 14 gallons off from me which will be around 55 dollars they will not like it if i steal from the company


Danielle blough May 11, 2014 at 7:36 pm

Your Giant Eagle drugstore in Johnstown Pa located on Scalp Avenue has rude and incompetent employees. Someone needs to investigate and do a complete over haul before someone sues. My own personal experience has always been terrible. They can’t even call to inform people they don’t have their prescriptions!!! Rude employees that don’t even understand insurance policies. Disgusting horrible service. I will be going to a new drugstore that has customer service skills and knows how to dial a phone.


Linda Sellers August 21, 2014 at 4:23 pm

I don’t get my scripts at G.E. But many seniors on the van do and they have the same problems. There is a law which states that the day a script is called in to any drugstore, by law they are required to fill it the day its called in. G.E. apparently never heard of that law. It will be a cold day in hell before I use G.E.’s drugstore.


Randy May 8, 2014 at 9:50 am

I am disappointed that your corporate store does not have the ability to tell me at which store (or even the warehouse that all stores pull from locally) if you stock Jack Daniels brand steak sauce. Does anyone at Giant Eagle know what they carry and what they don’t? I would think that customer service would be helpful without me calling every local store and getting the same “I don’t know” answer but nope, that’s not the case. Pathetic. Now I know why Wal-M is getting more and more of my business. Maybe your management can look into this issue should they want to keep me as a customer.


Regina Merullo May 5, 2014 at 10:04 am

Perhaps Giant Eagle Board Members have vision and can replicate the same plan as these men did on the East side of Cleveland. Giant Eagle acquired a historic church on W. 117th and Clifton Blvd, Cleveland OHclaiming they will incorporate it in a new design, but soon afterward according to press outlets reneged on that offer and just want to tear it down and build another strip mall grocery store. Instead of having a unique showroom store, they are striving for a plain chain square box store. Way to go Gian Eagle, what great vision you have. Go hire a real architect!


G.Maynard April 7, 2014 at 6:57 pm

Today my husband and I was treated with disrespect and rudeness. I called a prescription in this morning expecting to pick it up after work (when I was told it would be ready by 11AM.) However,after sitting in the drive thru line for 30 minutes I finally got to the window only to be told the script was not ready. This is unexceptionable for a drugstore not to have the medication on hand. I was then told after sitting in line for 30 minutes to pull around and get into line again and wait for 25 minutes to have only a partial script prepared and have to return again the next day for the rest??? What is wrong this situation???? My time is valuable just like your even though your rude employee\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s think all I have to do is run back and forth to the drugstore wasting my time and gas. Why did your drugstore not give me a call to inform me of my options before this situation occurred? Is this how little your organization feels about their customers? I went against my better judgement when I moved to the Canton, Ohio area and switched my prescription from Drug Mart to your organization. I will travel 10 miles out of my way to receive the customer service Drug Mart offers. I never had this problem with Drug Mart drugstore, they never had a problem with my script or if they did not have enough of the medication, they would call and provide other options for me such as: other drugstore (script already filled and waiting on pick up) or a partial and they even delivered it. That is what you call customer service. I know I am only one person, but be assured I will share this little experience with family and friends to warn them of the poor customer service and inability to order proper quantities of medications. I do not want my family or friends to be treat like this or have to waste their time and effort to have a prescription filled. Here is another thing….this medication is a time sensitive medication which is taken an a time schedule. Now that your drugstore has provided poor customer service and inability to have the medication on hand what I am I suppose to do till 3 PM tomorrow? Go to Emergency Room for treatment due to fact your organization did not properly order the medication? I will be happy to send you the bill!!!!! I feel your organization should compensate me and my husband for the time we wasted at your drugstore and the gas we used to go there twice. I will be switching my drugstore as soon as this script is empty since it is one that is fill faithfully every three months!!!!!!

White Oak, Pa Giant Eagle is franchise. Most of your customers do not know this. This store gives the Corporation a BAD name. The employe are unfriendly. They never smile. The customer service desk has poor people skills and does not know how to speak to their employees. Verbal abuse, insults, untrue accusations and putdowns are what is acceptable. They hire over 20% of their employees who are related to either another employee or management. MANAGEMENT seems totally clueless or they choose to look the other way. There is a huge case of adult bullying amongst employees. This store has a hostile working environment. If you have a disability and work there, management over looks the abuse. The union is a joke. $8.75 is taken out of each weekly pay check for union dues. The average employee makes $7.45/hour and only works 12 to 18 per week. CORPORATE needs to remedy this caustic matter.


Ju Nin Toiro January 25, 2014 at 10:31 am

The produce at this store is terrible. Each time I try to purchase fruit or tomatoes etc I cannot believe the quality it just isn’t there. Fresh produce is the staple to most meals and have to go to Chardon for good produce and at times Heinens in Chardon.

When I see these ads I think your CEO must be shopping at an imaginary store…the Giant Eagle at Legacy Village which is the jewel in the Cleveland crown has poor quality produce, high prices and uncaring “team members”…I have purchased substandard quality fruits and vegetables and been ignored at the deli counter enough times that I won’t shop there anymore.

I find your current TV ads very arrogant. Your CEO indignantly states that she can’t understand why you would buy your produce where you but a TV. You may have a point–how can I buy my prescriptions where I buy my hotdogs? Guess I need to move both.

I’m appalled at the actions of your employees! I was recently at your Fort couch location in pgh, and your employee, Rick, was in the back for a few minutes while I was waiting outside the “kiosk” type building. Figuring he was stocking, I wasn’t upset,until I seen he had a woman back there! Why would two people be in that little building? It’s obvious he was being promiscuous, as she had seen my face, she had a look of fear on hers. Upon talking to a few friends, they had said that they’ve seen her there too. Do you not monitor your employees? This is absolutely disgusting and unacceptable behavior and I shall not go back to that location for gas, nor any other needs! In closing, PLEASE look at what your employees are doing in their “down time” at work and make sure this will not happen again. You never know who’s watching or if a young girl may walk up on some disturbing actions!

After calling and writing customer service regarding a drugstore error in Medina, OH with my wife’s prescription on Thursday night (now Saturday morning) in which they lost her Rx and filled it with another medication, I have yet to receive a telephone call from the manager regarding the medication status. This is the second time this year that a prescription was filled incorrectly.

Maybe Giant Eagle is just telling us to take our $1,000 a month grocery business somewhere else.

Very sad in today’s economic environment where any business client should be protected as opposed to discarded.

To whom it may concern,

I have sent an anonymous complaint to GetGo about their Bridgeville store, but I regretted it briefly after the fact that I posted anonymously, because assigning a complaint to a name or face creates more impact. Sadly, nobody listens to nonentities.

I feel like complaining to any and every outlet necessary to inform Giant Eagle about my customer service experience at this store location.

To accuse you of some for which you are not directly responsible would be in poor taste, and therefore lowering myself to the behavior and attitudes of the Bridgeville GetGo staff, so this is not an assassination of your character, but a suggestion that perhaps the human resources department should really re-assess the kind of employees they want to represent this company. In short, if an applicant lacks the proper social skills and common decency to interact with customers respectfully, perhaps they should not be qualified to work in a customer service position. I am beyond outraged by my experience leading up to having been banned from this location.

Having worked at the McDonald’s on Washington Pike since early 2010, and given its convenient location in relation to my restaurant, GetGo had received my business since it had even been built. This store has made thousands of dollars off of me, and without wanting to seem entitled, I frankly believe that I deserve a little bit of gratitude. Instead, I was framed for a shoplifting crime. I don’t remember any names, but if it helps, this happened on November 28th, approximately 12:30 AM. My cashier was an African American woman with short hair and a wrist brace.

First of all, and at this juncture, I’m sure that it is a moot point but I never stole anything from this store. To be fair, I carry a medium-sized purse, and sometimes I store items I already purchased inside of it instead of bringing home excess bags I’ll never use again. I can understand why they would monitor me in this instance, but if they truly did, they’d see that anything I carried around with me inside the store that appeared suspicious I walked in with, and if I still couldn’t convince them of my innocence then, they could always monitor my activity inside the store, but I understand that it is less convenien t than paying selective attention and profiling your regular customers. The staff sees me doing what they want to see me doing and they must have a very elaborate imagination, because the scenarios in which I would even steal anything is logic-defying.

Granted that items at GetGo aren’t particularly as cheap as they could be, affordability has never been a concern with me. I regret disposing of all my cash register receipts but my bill had regularly amounted from anywhere between ten and twenty dollars a night. GetGo earns about fifty dollars from me a week. Why I’d pay that much money in order to shoplift whatever it is that they’re so concerned I’ve been stealing eludes me.

Meanwhile, any time I’m at that GetGo there are a half a dozen police officers patrolling the store. Why they’d think I was stupid enough to steal anything when there’s a high risk of getting caught in the act is really insulting to my intelligence. Moreover, if I shopped there for three years, why would I only begin shoplifting last week, except for in these paranoid fantasies this cashier is fabricating?

After your cashier berated me in front of an entire lobby full of people, and some arrogant police officer with all the smarm of a bad 1970s horror film had joined the disgusting pileon, I lost my nerve. I asked my associate if she had proof of the incident, to which she only replied nastily that she “had permission from the manager” to have me removed from the premises. Where the manager ever is during that shift, I’d like to know, since he or she is rarely, if ever, seen by me during my visits. That may, however, explain the nerve of these employees who think that they can get away with everything. Get it together, GetGo management!

I work as a cook at the McDonald’s across the parking lot. While the pay may not be as high there as it is at GetGo and my nights are usually long and stressful, there is always a manager resent who exercises reasonable control over his or her shift. Employees are trained to be friendly and professional. Of course, it doesn’t always happen that way, but when it doesn’t, the manager aims to resolve the conflict as professional as possible, not by passing the “my manager said so” script down the power-trip grapevine and not by cornering someone like a pack of baracudas. I was paying for my snack when my cashier became increasingly hostile. Seeing that she’s always miserable anyway, I thought nothing of it but she continued to raise her voice at me. When I tried to explain that it must have been a misunderstanding, one of the cooks who had been preparing my snack kicked me out. I don’t even think she was a manager. Does she even have the authority to do such a thing? As someone who has committed zero crimes in 25 years nor has been kicked out of a store, I’m not certain about the procedure.

I know, I know. I’ve lived a fairly sheltered life. I don’t handle being reprimanded very well, especially if it’s for things I didn’t do. Shame on me.

To be fair, I’m not just upset because I was unfairly banned from this store location. This has been a long time coming. The behavior I have witnessed from the crew is appalling. They have always been very nasty and unfriendly toward me.

Most of the times I have come in, there are no customers behind the register, whether they’re outside smoking, chatting in the back of the store, or “stocking”, nobody ever seems available. I’m not calling them lazy, but I have been in lines while the cashier was nowhere in sight. Last time I checked, the customer always comes first. Right?

They act like expecting you to wait on them that you’re somehow bothering them or interrupting them in the middle of something important. Sorry, but isn’t that what a cashier is paid to do? Instead, I’m greeted with eyerolls, mumbles, and slammed items. On a good day, the cashier may make eye contact with me or grunt “hi”. Honestly, where do they find these people? How do these employees even pass interviews with personalities like these? Meanwhile, friendlier, equally qualified people struggle to find a job.

I’m lead to believe these people just wanted to eliminate me from their store, but that’s their loss. Whether the staff dislikes the inconvenience of taking aside two minutes on a transaction or they just hate my face, I hope it’s worth losing a large chunk of money to get rid of me. I’m polite. I’m quiet and I don’t make a mess. Yet, any time I came in lately, the environment feels dejecting; cold and uninviting.

If GetGo strives to achieve an unfriendly atmosphere which alienates its most loyal customers, keep up the good work. However, if GetGo touts being accepting and fun, well, I’ve got some bad news…

I hope someone reads this, not because I even want anything now, but so that repercussions can be taken against these staff members and their despicable behavior.

Your Pharmacist Jessie, refused to honor your coupon for me, when everything was in order as the coupon stipulated, I complained to the store manager Alecia, who agreed with me, but said at the end of the day it was Jessie’s call, so that’s it, then your coupon for the $1.00 off is of no use, and he put in the computer for none of the stores to honor
the coupons for me. I have since given all of my business to Rite Aid and will do my food shoping elsewhere, he is causing your store to lose business. Very upsetting, when he put that in the system it became a witch hunt, and he did not even have the decency to tell me himself he sent over his assistant.

As a long time customer of Giant Eagle I am beyond
disgusted, disappointed and dissatisfied with the events that occurred at your Howland, Ohio store Oct 31, 2013.
My husband, myself and our two young daughters stopped into the store to pick up a few things. Once at the checkout, I slid my debt card, entered in my zip code to verify I was the cardholder and signed my name. After signing my name I hit enter and the screen went blank. The cashier said her screen said I needed to sign. She called several people from the office over to troubleshoot. One girl said this same thing happened before earlier
in the day at a different register. My family patiently waited for 45 minutes while random office people came over and stared blankly at the screen. I offered to call my bank to see if the transaction went through. I was NOT having my card swiped again if I was charged already. I called my bank and they verified yes, $64.82 went through. I asked the cashier and office workers do you need to speak to them, I was told no. My kids are getting tired and we had perishable items sitting the buggy. My husband then asked for a manager. He was told he won’t be able to help. My husband said he’s the manager call him. Several minutes later Bryan shows up. We explain the bank said the charge has gone through. We asked if we could just leave since we already paid. Bryan said there is no record on the stores end. I said you have our receipt with the transaction number. My husband and I walked over to Huntington Bank inside the store and asked them for a printout. Right there in black and white it showed the deduction had been made. Bryan proceeded to shrug his shoulders offer NO resolution but for us to wait longer while they continued to look blankly at a screen. We left the groceries and told Bryan we would NEVER shop at giant eagle again. This customer service is completely unacceptable. We understand things happen, but managers should know how to react. I spend thousands of dollars every year at your store, NOT including my gasoline purchases at GETGO several times a week. I demand an apology and want someone to contact us regarding this manner.
