We routinely use the Curbside Express grocery delivery service. I see from my blog analytics that previous posts on this topic are spiking in popularity so I thought it was a good time to create an update tailored to people who might be trying the service for the first time. Note that your first delivery […]
Nearly a year ago, I wote a review about the Giant Eagle Curbside Express service, their home delivery shopping project. Fast forward to late July and I’ve used the service 26 times. That’s a little more than every other week. Here’s how I originally assessed the service What Works Well The Notes section The clickable […]
I remember early in our relationship days, Ledcat and I went grocery shopping together at the Waterfront Giant Eagle near my home. This was probably 8-10 months in to our relationship (now going on 162 months, thank you.) It wasn’t a joint shop for a shared event, it was two independent shops using one cart. […]
We had the week two weeks from hell dealing with #CeilingCollapse2018 and the ensuing fallout (pun – ha!) so I decided it was a time to let someone else do the necessary grocery shopping. Fitting in a trip to the store for much-needed supplies was difficult with all that was going on for both of […]
Earlier this week, I blogged about a petition to keep the Cedar Avenue Giant Eagle store open. Late Tuesday afternoon, Giant Eagle tweet this to me as their formal response. After more than 30 years of owning and operating Giant Eagle supermarkets throughout the city of Pittsburgh, Bill and Marie Bricker have decided to retire […]
A few minutes ago, Marie Bricker Furlong posted a comment in response to the Giant Eagle posts. I confirmed her email address and that Marie Bricker is the owner of the Cedar Avenue location. No one has reached out to me directly to discuss either from Giant Eagle corporate or from the local independently owned […]

You can read my original post here. – Sue) To Whom It May Concern, My name is Sue Kerr and I am a Pittsburgh based blogger at pghlesbian.com. I wrote a blog post describing a positive interaction I had […]
We’ve been crouched in fear for over three weeks and with good reason as the hate and ugliness are fully unleashed on us. I’ve been struggling to use my tools, to find meaning and to figure out how the heck I’m going to survive for four years like this. Elizabeth’s work ethic reminds me that there are a lot of good people here in Pittsburgh who will continue to be good people, come what may. There are people who live their values and walk the walk every single day, regardless of whether we are an older black man who forgot a pin number or a middle aged white lesbian who picked up the item without a price tag.
Elizabeth made me realize that, at least sometimes, it might be okay.
I hate poor customer service. Giant Eagle Mcintyre Square was horrible two weeks ago. I used the little form at the website to explain my displeasure. Two weeks later, nothing. If customer service doesn't respond to a customer service complaint well, I guess buiness must be good. Today, Ledcat and I tried to refill 2 […]
Giant Eagle entrepreneur Bill Bricker is quite the guy. He is closing the Giant Eagle in Lawrenceville because it isn't profitable and has purchased our corporate owned store on the North Side. Huh? The North Side store had to cost a pretty penny b/c corporate has invested a ton of money to make it well, […]
