Giant Eagle stores opening earlier for seniors during coronavirus pandemic

CLEVELAND — Giant Eagle is doing their part to help the elderly during this coronavirus pandemic by opening their doors an hour earlier.  

Starting this Monday, March 23, the food retailer will open at 6 A.M. Monday through Wednesday.  This extra time of shopping is for customers who are 60 and older, differently abled or immune-compromised.

While Giant Eagle employees will not be checking IDs for age confirmation, they do ask that people respect their policy.

“We continue to be amazed by the commitment of our Team Members, who have again stepped up to make sure that the most vulnerable members of our communities have an opportunity to comfortably shop in our stores,” said Giant Eagle spokesperson Dan Donovan.  “We ask that all customers help us by respecting these hours for the health and well-being of our community during this time.”

The general public will be able to shop during their current hours of 7 A.M. to 10 P.M.
