Giant Eagle History
Giant Eagle supermarkets have proudly served their customers for more than 80 years.
Three families — Goldstein, Porter and Chait — build a small grocery company called Eagle Grocery. The business is a success, and the Eagle chain expands to 125 stores. In 1928, the families sell Eagle Grocery to the Kroger Company. As part of their arrangement with Kroger, the families agree to leave the grocery business for three years.
In the meantime, two families — Moravitz and Weizenbaum — had been building their own successful chain of grocery stores named OK Grocery.
In 1931, the five families—Goldstein, Porter, Chait, Moravitz and Weizenbaum — combine forces to form Giant Eagle. The first Giant Eagle supermarket opens on Brownsville Road in 1936. Throughout the 30s and 40s, through the hardships of the Great Depression and World War II, the chain of Giant Eagle supermarkets and OK Grocery Food Stores grows steadily throughout Pittsburgh-area neighborhoods.
