Giant Eagle Stores
The first Giant Eagle store was opened in 1918 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The store has long been a chain, and today it has places operating in Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland in addition to its home state of Pennsylvania. Ninety years after its first store opened, the chain has been called one of the top 75 North American food stores around. Quite an achievement for humble origins.
When you open the company’s website, four interesting words – all links – indicate that here you can Cook, Entertain, Live, Save. Not a bad combination for a bit of advice about how to go on about our daily business in this day and age. So, what happens when you click on Cook? You get cooking techniques as well as cooking articles galore. Also sound advice on good nutrition and how to use up the best ingredients that you may have picked up at the store earlier in the day or the week.
The Entertain link takes you to a page that gives you what they call “grown-up dinner parties to themed seasonal gatherings.” In other words, here you can find all that you need in order to organize your next dinner party for family and friends. Birthday coming up? Or an anniversary? No problem. But the page can also give you advice on holiday eating as well. So be sure to click on “Entertain” and see what you can come up with that will be useful to you the next time you need to invite the boss, for example, to dinner.
Click on Live, and the page that opens will surprise you with all that you can gain from this page alone. Here, you are going to find such fine things as Women’s Health Guide or Gluten-Free Living or what to do if you have cholesterol issues or how to power up your diet with the most nutritious fruits and vegetables. Today, there is a lot to be done when it comes to keeping ourselves and our loved one in the best of health, and Giant Eagle Stores are in the business of, among other things, helping us to do just that.
Click on Save, and you’ll find yourself on Save More, Every Day. That is the name of the page once you are in there. And here you get a whole list of items that you can save plenty of your hard-earned money on. There are, for example, Giant Eagle grocery discounts here in plentiful supply. The Giant Eagle Store brands also offer you special savings, but you may actually get a Giant Eagle Advantage Card that may really rack up the savings for you.
Giant Eagle has fresh foods, of course, and a bakery and a deli, and a cheese shop and a large selection of beers, foreign and domestic. You name it, and you are probably going to find it. The bakery, for example, prides itself on home-style breads as well as whole-wheat breads. But here you’ll also find a great selection of cookies and muffins and pies, not to speak of such great specialties as wedding cakes, just in case you may be in the market for that particular honor.
The deli has great party trays, but also a great selection of lunch meats and deli cheeses, plus olives and antipasti and delicious deli salads. Giant Eagle Stores are, therefore, clearly a shopper’s paradise. And in this case that paradise is nowhere near lost. All the fresh fruits and vegetables you may wish to place in your shopping cart will be there every day. And all the meat and dairy products as well. So come on it and do your best to buy what you need.
