Giant Eagle Cuts Ribbon on Newest GetGo Store
CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- GetGo, the convenience store division of grocer Giant Eagle Inc., cut the ribbon on its newest location in Cranberry Township, Pa., just north of Pittsburgh. The new 5,500-square-foot GetGo store brings area customers a variety of fresh foods, including sandwiches, Angus burgers, breakfast sandwiches, sushi prepared on site, salads, wraps and more, all of which can be enjoyed in the sit-down café that seats 25.
The 24-hour location features 16 fuel pumps, four of which are diesel, and all are eligible for redeeming fuelperks! and earning foodperks! as part of the company's loyalty programs. Other on-site conveniences include a WetGo car wash, two surcharge-free ATMs, free air for tires, free Wi-Fi, lottery services, a redbox movie kiosk and retailer gift cards.
Additionally, in-store beverage options include a 16-head fountain featuring both Pepsi and Coca Cola products, along with eight flavors of frozen carbonated beverages, fruit and java smoothies, milkshakes and more than 30 GetGo brand coffee, tea and cappuccino choices.
"Our new Cranberry location brings customers the latest features of our GetGo format, including delicious old-fashioned subs and breakfast sandwiches, and convenience offerings such as a WetGo car wash and free air for tires, all at the convenient confluence of Route 228, Interstate 79 and I-76," said GetGo Senior Vice President Kevin Srigley. "The store is the first of several upcoming new GetGo locations, including one on McKnight Road in Pittsburgh's North Hills in 2013."
Grand-opening festivities will be highlighted by appearances by Pittsburgh Penguins hockey star Pascal Dupuis and Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman.
Giant Eagle's GetGo fuel and convenience store brand enables the regional retailer to bring the same level of fresh, quality food and unmatched customer service associated with Giant Eagle supermarkets to the convenient GetGo setting. GetGo locations encompass kiosks that are built adjacent to existing Giant Eagle supermarkets and larger standalone units.
Currently, Giant Eagle, with approximately $9.9 billion in annual sales, operates 230 supermarkets and 179 fuel and convenience stores throughout western Pennsylvania, north central Ohio, northern West Virginia and Maryland.
