In April 2012, Giant Eagle announced its newly constructed 83,000-sq-ft “green” supermarket in the greater Cleveland, OH, area. One of the store’s more prominent environmentally friendly features is the solar roof, featuring a tubular solar array and skylights that help offset the store’s need for electric power from more traditional sources. Also, Giant Eagle believes in taking care of its employees. The Pittsburgh Business Times presented the chain with the 2012 Healthiest Employer award in recognition of the quality, effectiveness and overall commitment to health through its corporate wellness program. In addition to the awards it has received this year, Giant Eagle continuously supports schools and its community through programs such as Apples for the Students. More than $25 million in educational equipment, including computers, software, audio/visual equipment and playground equipment has been donated through this educational partnership over the years. Many of the Top 25 use the InnoSeal System to protect their customers and save labor. Do you? The ultimate tamper evident bag closure system. Use InnoSeal to protect your products from unwanted hands. Unlike twist ties, customers will know if anyone else has sampled your product before them. | 1-866-958-4666 | 26 | inStorebuyer | November 2012 |
