Early September opening set for Market District store

The new Giant Eagle Market District store on West Third Avenue at Grandview Yard is scheduled to open Sept. 5.

A grand-opening ceremony for the adjacent GetGo gas station was held Aug. 14.

The Market District store will be about 50 percent larger than Giant Eagle's Fifth Avenue store, said Dan Donovan, marketing director, corporate communications.

The existing store will close just before the new store opens, he said.

Giant Eagle continues to hold the lease on the Fifth Avenue property, but the future of the site remains up in the air, Donovan said.

A grand opening will be scheduled during the opening weekend of the new store, he said.
