PITTSBURGH -- GetGo stores, owned by Giant Eagle, are continuing expansion in the Pennsylvania area, with construction beginning on a 24-hour GetGo that will include a separate car wash and island with 18 fuel pumps, the Erie (Pa.) Times News reported. Other new stores are planned for the future.
As previously reported by CSNews Online, the company recently acquired four CoGo locations in Pennsylvania and converted them to the GetGo brand.
The company is starting to position itself in a regional market dominated by Country Fair convenience stores, according to the report. The newest GetGo in the region is expected to open in four months.
Construction costs for the newest store will total an estimated $3 million, including the pumps, canopies and store fixtures, according to John C. Palovsky, vice president of construction for Echo Real Estate Services Co. of Pittsburgh, the real estate developer for the Giant Eagle supermarket chain, which co-owns the company managing GetGo.
