Giant Eagle opens fifth Market District store

PITTSBURGH — Giant Eagle on Thursday unveiled its fifth Market District location in five years — and its first in Pittsburgh’s North Hills suburbs.

The newly expanded 90,000-sq.-ft. location is celebrating a grand opening with in-store demonstration and autograph signing appearances by food celebrities, including Bravo Network "Top Chef" competitor Mike Isabella, Food Network "Ask Aida" host Aida Mollenkamp and Master Chef Martin Yan. Additionally, TLC Network’s “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro will be on hand to unveil a larger-than-life cake he and his team created.

“The opening of the new Market District in the Township of Pine is a milestone for our company," stated spokesman Rob Borella. “When customers visit this new store, they will enjoy a world-class shopping and dining experience all in one place, bursting with amazing food from 19 countries around the world, combined with food expertise with everything from daily demonstrations to celebrity chef appearances and interactive events.”

The Market District format was first introduced in the Pittsburgh market in 2006. Giant Eagle has since taken the banner to Columbus, Ohio.
