Garfield Heights - Giant Eagle announced Wednesday that it will resume regular operations at its Garfield Heights supermarket located on Transportation Boulevard. The location has been operating exclusively as a curbside pickup center since April.
This temporary transition enabled the company to immediately increase the number of Giant Eagle curbside pickup and delivery orders able to be fulfilled for Cleveland-area guests each day while other area Giant Eagle locations worked to increase its daily pickup and delivery capacities.
“The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic created an urgent need for food retailers to innovate and find ways to make contactless pickup and delivery options available to more people and converting our Garfield Heights store was critical for our ability to meet the needs of Cleveland area Giant Eagle guests,” said Giant Eagle Spokesperson Jannah Jablonowski. “We are now in a position to meet the increased demand for grocery pickup and home delivery services with same-day and next-day slots available to guests at most locations, and with that, felt it was time to welcome guests back into our Garfield Heights supermarket.”
The Garfield Heights Giant Eagle will reopen to the public on Thursday, June 18th at 7 a.m. Guests will continue to be able to place curbside pickup and home delivery orders from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., daily.
The Garfield Heights in-store pharmacy will continue to operate for prescription pickup or drop off both in-pharmacy and at the drive-thru from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Patients are encouraged to speak to a pharmacy Team Member to determine the best way to obtain their medications.
Additionally, the liquor agency within the Garfield Heights location will be open from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday – Saturday and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sunday.
But, what about the also closed to the public Cuyahoga Falls Giant Eagle off Howe Avenue?
"Our e-comm team is constantly evaluating slot availability across our markets and they’ve determined that we need to keep Howe Ave. operating as a fulfillment center in order to be able to meet the demand in that area. So, for the time being, Garfield Heights will be open to public shopping beginning Thursday, but Howe will remain closed to the public for the time being", added Jablonowski.
