Giant Eagle Statement

"Earlier this morning we became aware of a need for minor roof maintenance at our Green Market District. As we investigate the source of the issue, out of an abundance of caution the decision was made to temporarily close the store. There are no injuries to Team Members or customers, nor was any product damaged as a result of the maintenance issue. We look forward to reopening again as soon as we are able."
