Giant Eagle Inc. Closes Two Small GetGo Stores by Ohio State University

Giant Eagle Inc. will not pursue any more small convenience stores for its GetGo subsidiary after closing two near Ohio State University. The GetGo locations at 1551 N. High St. and 352 W. Lane Ave., which opened in August 2013, did not have gasoline pumps like the rest of the stores in the chain. The company offered jobs to the 40 affected workers at other stores and GetGo remains committed to the Central Ohio market.

Kroger Co. Files Lawsuit Against Giant Eagle Inc. and Echo Kingsdale LLC

Kroger Co. filed a lawsuit in May in Franklin County Common Pleas Court against Giant Eagle Inc. and Echo Kingsdale LLC. The issue: Kroger is considering opening a supermarket at Kingsdale on the 6.2-acre site it acquired from Macy's Inc. in January for $10.5 million. According to the lawsuit, Giant Eagle and the shopping center's owner are saying Kroger can't do that because of a deed restriction. Kroger argues that the restriction being cited expired 20 years ago and no longer applies. According to the lawsuit, that 1969 deed contains a restriction preventing its holder from opening a supermarket. But Kroger points out there was a time limit on that restriction - the original 20-year lease for Big Bear, which started in 1960, plus three five-year renewals. In its estimation, that means the restriction expired in 1995. The lawsuit notes that Giant Eagle and the co-defendants contend that the restriction is still in place, though it does not explain how and where that objection was made. Upper Arlington officials also weren't immediately available to comment on the progress of the site's redevelopment.
