Giant Eagle is a supermarket chain that operates primarily in Pennsylvania and Ohio. In 2003, Giant Eagle introduced the GetGo c-store concept and three years later, it developed the Market District banner, which offers specialty and organic food options. In 2013, it launched Giant Eagle Express, a hybrid between a supermarket and a c-store. The chain’s GetGo Cafe + Market stores offer time-pressed customers the same shopping experience found at the company's full-sized supermarkets but in a convenient, scaled-down format. The c-stores also link fuel to the parent chain's grocery stores with its fuelperks loyalty program.
