    looks like most if not all of the other Giant Eagle locations that were open until 1am are cutting back hours also. to 11pm Sun-Thurs. Midnight Fri & Sat.
    doesnt really make sense since they do still have associates working and really no-one to attend to customers up front. everyone uses the self checkout.
    I cant see how locking the doors one or two hours earlier is justified.

    their website still has all the old hours posted though. so much for truth in advertising.

    I feel it is a wise business decision for stores to be closed during hours they consistently lose money.

    and not everyone in the world works first shift, so shopping at 6pm is not an option.

    Greek Street Tavern is closed and there is a sign indicating that a place called “Pizza Fire” is coming soon. The renovations at Schoedinger’s Northwest Chapel are well underway. Structural steel is being erected on the new OSU Wexner Medical Center at Kingsdale building. The medical building has been erected West of where its location was indicated on the renderings, and the access road to the shopping center from Zollinger has also been moved West.

    Since we’re talking about it, I’m an employee at the Grandview Yard Giant Eagle Market District, and there are rumors we won’t be 24 hours, either. If that’s true, it makes sense since Kingsdale did the same.

    Re-opening the 5th Ave. location won’t happen. The Kingsdale Market District has already lost business to the new GY Market District.

    Also, if we are talking about the Kroger/Giant Eagle battle, I will say that I hope Kroger wins. Giant Eagle is nice, but they are far, far more expensive. They have a better fuel perks program, but as someone who barely drives and drives a fuel efficient car with a small tank, it’s hardly worth it for me.

    I was surprised to find two nice Krogers not far apart on West Broad, on either side of 270.

    Ive always been puzzled by the proximity of Kroger’s locations. it seems like they are trying for an over density of stores so they can lock out any competitor. some stores are only 1.5 miles from each other.

    There’s also one in that area just outside of 270 off of Georgesville Road.

    I was puzzled, too, there’s the Kroger on Henderson and nearby there’s a Kroger on Bethel.

    The University City Kroger is 1.6 miles from the Broadway & High Kroger.

    “Kroger is moving forward with plans to develop a store on the site,” spokeswoman Jennifer Jarrell said in an email. “We are currently working with the city to develop the property in a way that best serves the residents of Upper Arlington. At this time, there is no timeline to share.”

    Because every community needs two big box grocery stores 100 yards away from each other. Kingsdale is such a missed opportunity.

    I have no inside info, but I’m betting that Kroger will build a new Main & Vine concept at Kingsdale. Just makes sense given the location.

    If the market supports it, why not?
