Giant Eagle Opening First Of Its Discount Stores In Pittsburgh Area
The discount grocery store is expected to open in the fall.
If you're looking for the best value – or in this case, Valu – you might want to check out the progress of a discount grocery store on the way on the heavily traveled McKnight Road in Ross Township.
Giant Eagle confirmed it is planning to open Valu King, a discount version of its chain, sometime in October or November.
“We are excited to bring our first Pittsburgh-area Valu King location,” said Giant Eagle spokesman Dick Roberts.
The store will be located right next door to a Bottom Dollar store that also is set to open later this summer.
Asked why the company is putting a store directly next to the competition, Roberts said, “The time is right to bring that banner to Pittsburgh. It's a good location, and there aren’t many other desirable locations on McKnight Road."
Giant Eagle operates seven Valu King stores:four in northeastern Ohio, two in Erie and one in Johnstown.
