Giant Eagle to Host Ace Hardware in Four Stores
April 13, 2018
Shoppers at four Pennsylvania Giant Eagle stores will soon be able to grab a hammer along with their tomatoes.
The Pittsburgh-based grocer has inked a deal with Ace Hardware to install in-store Ace Hardware departments at locations in Allegheny Township, Irwin, Ross and Shaler, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Remodeling activities for each store will occur over the coming weeks, the company said, with plans to have the first department open by this summer.
“It is imperative that we at Giant Eagle continue to innovate both within and outside of our supermarkets to succeed in our increasingly competitive food retail environment,” said Dick Roberts, spokesman for Giant Eagle, in the statement. “Ace’s experience with store-within-a-store concepts at other retailers and shared commitment to quality, service, and convenience make them a natural fit for Giant Eagle.”
