The new Giant Eagle next door.

[ #2944 ]

We used to have a modest Giant Eagle near town. It was large, large enough that it put a local Shop n' Save out of business. It also pretty much had a monopoly here and unless you wanted to travel a fair distance, it was the only option.

It must have done well because on Sunday a new, Super Duper Giant Eagle was opened. This store is really huge. They had a grand opening and Chastity and I didn't know this. We went to the store to shop yesterday and so did everyone else in Pennsylvania, or so it seemed.

In my old age, I think I'm beginning to like the idea of small local markets.

  • I always shop at my local co-op. It costs a bit more but they have much better produce (fresher), lots of organic stuff, they don't sell GMO food, and they pay their employees a fair wage with benefits. The employees are really helpful and friendly and they get to know you.

    Plus they carry the things I want (I'm vegan).

    Every dollar you spend is a choice about the world you want. If you want small, pleasant markets where people know you and who will actually respond to customer requests then shop at on
    • I like large "mega-markets". Mmmm mmm good. Small businesses are too small.
      • Uh, okay. You're free to vote with your dollars too. I can't really force you to go to a small store.

        I've never gone to my local co-op and wished I were at a big market though. They mostly have the things I want, and certainly there's nothing at the supermarket I want that the co-op doesn't have. Though there are still things noone around here has that I'd like.
  • Do you live in Pittsburgh or western PA? If so, where at?
