Giant Eagle increasing curbside & delivery options in Akron-Canton area

The chain is making plans to turn its Howe Avenue supermarket in Cuyahoga Falls into a fulfillment center.

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Giant Eagle will soon offer Akron and Canton residents additional curbside pickup and delivery services.

The grocery store chain is making plans to turn their Howe Avenue supermarket, located in Cuyahoga Falls, into a fulfillment center for those customers looking for curbside pickup and delivery options. With this move, they are hoping to increase the number of orders they are able to fulfill.

Said spokesperson Jannah Jablonowski:

"As consumer demand for grocery pickup and delivery options continues to increase, we are exploring every opportunity to change how we do business to make our products available to as many of our guests as possible today, tomorrow and in the future. This temporary store transition will enable us to dramatically increase our capacity to take and fulfill curbside pickup and delivery orders for the surrounding Akron and Canton communities. And as our Howe Avenue Giant Eagle transition takes off, we are simultaneously looking to bring this innovative solution to other areas throughout northeast Ohio and elsewhere in the coming days."

Giant Eagle says the store will close to the general public on Saturday at 9 p.m. and will reopen with curbside pickup and delivery options only starting on Sunday.  Time slots will be available from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. daily, and all payments must be done online to limit person to person contact.

To take part, Giant Eagle customers can order groceries through curbside pickup or delivery at gianteagle.com/grocery or through the Giant Eagle grocery app.
