Review of Giant Eagle’s Curbside Express grocery delivery service

Review of Giant Eagle Curbside Express

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 […]

That Time We Merged Our Separate Giant Eagle Advantage Cards

Giant Eagle Advantage Card Shared Account

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. […]

I Tried Giant Eagle’s Grocery Home Delivery Service and Here’s How It Went

Giant Eagle Curbside Express Delivery

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 […]

As you know, we have multiple agencies supporting LGBTQ youth and young adults. They work together. One of the leading organizations is Proud Haven. We’ve been supporting their drive to collect Burlington Coat Factory cards to help youth purchase their own winter gear. I just learned a few minutes ago that the unofficial food pantry […]

Giant Eagle Makes Commitment to Keep Cedar Avenue Store Open

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 […]

Petition: #PghNorthside Wants @GiantEagle to Remain a Good Neighbor

Review of Giant Eagle Curbside Express

The Northside neighborhoods have a few grocery stores – a Kuhn’s in Brighton Heights, a handful of corner grocers throughout the neighborhoods and two Giant Eagle stores. One is on Brighton Road near the border with Ross Township and the other in on Cedar Avenue, in the heart of East Allegheny.  We typically refer to […]

Top Ten Blog Posts of 2016

Dalia Sabae

As popular as they are, the #AMPLIFY posts don’t have the reach that my original blogging does which affirms my commitment to keep these stories intertwined with the rest of the posts. In between writing about the epidemics of violence, the harm of anti-poverty initiatives and some of my own personal experiences with negative factors, we all need the stories of lives lived in spite of those obstacles. I believe reading about the everyday experiences of LGBTQ people in their own words fleshes out the posts that I write about people who can no longer speak for themselves.

I’m Cranky, Sad and Defiant. December, Here I Come.

There is no opening sentence that will accurately describe my emotional mindset right now. How about “my month has been a delightful Panoply of precursors to the next four years as well as most of what’s been happening forever that I never thought about?” I started out after the election feeling numb and cutting myself […]

No one has reached out to me directly to discuss either from Giant Eagle corporate or from the local independently owned […]
