53 Cleveland Area Giant Eagle Stores Celebrate Grand Opening
Expanded Services and New Products Are Now In Place
CLEVELAND, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Giant Eagle is here, and starting tomorrow, will make life simple for people in greater Cleveland. Tomorrow, the 53 area Stop-n-Shop stores will officially change their banner to Giant Eagle. With this change comes new brands such as Aunt Martha's pies from The Bake Shop, River City Chicken and Pizza Di Casa from The Kitchens at Giant Eagle; new services, including expanded health and beauty products sections, the Eagle's Nest play area for children and pharmacies (see following list for locations); the Giant Eagle Advantage Card(R); and expanded hours of operation for 22 of the Giant Eagle locations (see following list for 24-hour stores). To celebrate the grand opening, a plethora of activities has been scheduled at all 53 stores. Current and retired Indians players, Slider, Cleveland Browns Alumni, and Miss Ohio are just a few of the celebrities who will stop by the new Giant Eagle stores to greet customers and sign autographs. Area radio stations will also host remote broadcasts from the new Giant Eagle locations. Hundreds of prizes and giveaways are in the works. "We are excited to celebrate the grand opening of 53 new Giant Eagle stores throughout greater Cleveland," said Anthony Rego, Vice Chairman of Giant Eagle. "The new services and new brands, the Giant Eagle Advantage Card(R) and expanded hours of operation are just the start of what shoppers in Northeast Ohio will see as a part of this transition. These are just a few examples of our new mission: To Make Life Simple." "Most importantly, our sense of family and tradition of service to our customers will not change," added Chuck Rini, Sr., Executive Vice President of Giant Eagle. "We take pride in what we have spent the last forty years building and promise that our customers will continue to see the same people with even better service and products in the stores." In addition to Giant Eagle's commitment to its customers, the company focuses heavily on community involvement. Giant Eagle has provided millions of dollars in support for local causes, events and non-profit groups in communities it serves. Northeast Ohio will be no exception. The company recently donated $50,000 to the Cleveland Museum of Art for community programming surrounding the renovation of the Armor Court. Other initiatives are being planned for the Cleveland-area stores, including the introduction of a special school support program called "Apples for the Students." Representatives from area schools are invited to attend an informational meeting about this program on September 25 at the Cleveland Playhouse from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. According to Rego, customers who had Stop-N-Shop Preferred Shoppers Club Cards should have already received their Giant Eagle Advantage Card(R) in the mail. From September 13 through October 31, shoppers can earn a free Thanksgiving turkey (or a grocery gift certificate) every time they use their new card to make purchases. Shoppers without the Giant Eagle Advantage Card(R) can fill out an application at any store. Founded in 1931, Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle has grown to be the number one supermarket retailer in the region with over 200 corporate and independent stores in western Pennsylvania, northeastern Ohio, and West Virginia. By offering modern stores, a wide range of departments and services, and involvement in numerous community activities, Giant Eagle strives to "Make Life Simple" for the customers it serves. 22 Rini-Rego Giant Eagle Locations Open 24-Hours 2201 Kresge Dr. 4700 Great Northern Blvd. Amherst North Olmstead 31990 Walker Rd. 34325 Center Ridge Rd.
