    Giant Eagle Debuts ‘Green’ Store in Cleveland

    Includes first supermarket solar roof in Northeast Ohio

    On the heels of Earth Day, Giant Eagle Inc. unveiled a new 83,000-square-foot state of the art supermarket at Interstate 77 and Route 82 in the greater Cleveland area.

    The 24-hour, environmentally friendly supermarket offers customers an increased focus on prepared and fresh foods, health, beauty and wellness, convenience and value.

    Located at 4343 Royalton Road, Giant Eagle’s first new supermarket in the Cleveland area since the opening of its West 117th and Interstate 90 location showcases a diverse selection of fresh foods and prepared dishes including a sub shop and pizza station; grab-and-go meals and side dishes; a health, beauty and wellness department; a sit-down café with free Wi-Fi; an in-store Huntington Bank branch; and a nearby GetGo location. The store is also Northeast Ohio’s first supermarket with a solar roof.

    “The new store, which is bringing approximately 250 new jobs to the area, is designed with a convenient and friendly shopping experience in mind, and represents the latest design and features we have to offer,” said Rob Borella, Giant Eagle’s senior director of corporate communications. “The store also incorporates many of the environmentally friendly features that have helped us earn the world’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified supermarket in nearby Brunswick, and since seven other supermarket and fuel and convenience store locations including our most recent LEED certification in Indiana, Pennsylvania.”

    One of the store’s more prominent environmentally friendly features is the solar roof, featuring a tubular solar array and skylights that help offset the store's need for electric power from more traditional sources. For those interested in learning more about this unique feature, the store’s vestibule offers an area that tracks energy savings and system output of the roof, in addition to describing the process of solar energy generation.

    Additionally, the store offers an on-site state liquor agency offering more than 800 spirits, and a selection of more than 550 domestic and imported beers and 1,700 varieties of wine; a specialty cheese shop with hundreds of artisan, local and imported varieties, plus more than 100 varieties of deli meats along with imported olives and antipasti; a wide selection of produce, including 20 varieties of peppers, 20 types of tomatoes and 17 varieties of mushrooms; a full-service bakery; full-service meat and seafood departments; and an array of natural and organic products along with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free items.

    A grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Thursday, April 26, including family activities and appearances by local celebrities.

    Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle Inc. operates 175 corporate and 54 independently owned supermarkets in addition to 169 fuel and convenience stores throughout western Pennsylvania, Ohio, north central West Virginia and Maryland.
