No Giant Eagle Market District in Grandview Yard

Published April 23, 2012 by justicewg

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.
