The Buckeye Road store in this post was a Tops takeover store and the Lorain Avenue location was a Rini-Rego Stop-n-Shop conversion.
Giant Eagle announced on January 3rd, 2017 that they were shutting down five Ohio supermarkets on February 4th and March 4th. February 4th closings I know many readers of this site are not familiar to the Giant Eagle supermarket chain, so here is a brief background...
Giant Eagle operates a couple hundred stores under the names Giant Eagle, Giant Eagle Express, Market District, Market District Express, and Get Go in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Indiana, and West Virginia The Market District concept stores are generally larger and more upscale than a typical Giant Eagle supermarket.
A number of new and replacement stores have also been opened around Cleveland since Giant Eagle's entry into the area.
Giant Eagle also converted a bunch of stores from Tops Friendly Market after that chain left Ohio in December 2006.
In September 1998, the Rini-Rego Stop-n-Shop stores were re-branded as Giant Eagle and the other Stop-n-Shop franchises became franchised Giant Eagle locations.
