ThisWeek is reporting that the new Giant Eagle grocery store to be built north of 3rd Avenue at the Grandview Yard development will not be a Market District store, like the one in Kingsdale. Something similar to the store on 5th Ave is being proposed, with the addition of a GetGo gas station.
Although hints about building a Market District were given for the location, it never seemed to make sense for Giant Eagle to build two of the mega-stores so close together.
This quote from the article is important. “Other potential elements for the north end of the Yard development will likely include two or three restaurants and a branch bank, although nothing is ready to be announced, Ellis said.”
The Market District stores have mini-restaurants inside the store, this might have conflicted with the other restaurants that are to be built in the north section of the Yard.
