On the heels of gaining the approval to sell beer in its new Market District concept store that opened two weeks ago in Robinson Township, Giant Eagle is obtaining six more licenses from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) to sell beer in more of its Pennsylvania supermarkets, including one in Washington County’s South Strabane as of today.
As the only grocer thus far in western Pennsylvania that currently sells beer, the Pittsburgh-based grocer has now sought approval from the PLCB to sell beer in seven additional Pittsburgh-area Giant Eagle stores and another location in Erie, Pa., Giant Eagle spokesman Rob Borella told Progressive Grocer. The beer will be sold in the cafe area of the stores, with a limit of two six-packs, or two beers consumed at the store. “The stores are in various stages of hearings and approvals by the PLCB, and we expect to see them come online early 2010,” Borella added.
The locations of the other six Giant Eagle stores that have been approved to sell beer in the Pittsburgh area include Homestead (The Waterfront), Monroeville, Pine Township, West Mifflin (Century Plaza) and West View, as well as in Harborcreek, Erie County.
