Giant Eagle Laying Off Employees

Most of the cutbacks affect employees at the grocer's corporate offices in O'Hara.

Giant Eagle announced it is eliminating 75 positions, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. 

Rob Borella, senior director of corporate communications, told the PG the layoffs are part of a continuing effort to cut costs and operate efficiently. Most of the eliminated positions are at the company's headquarters in O'Hara.

Giant Eagle employs 36,000 people in four states and about 11,000 in western Pennsylvania, a mix of part-time and full-time workers, the PG reported.

In Pine-Richland, the company has a Giant Eagle store in Northtowne Square in Richland and a Market District store in the Village at Pine in Pine Township. It also operates GetGos in both townships.

Giant Eagle has more than 200 supermarkets and more than 180 gas and convenience stores in western Pennsylvania, north central Ohio, northern West Virginia, and western Maryland.

The company just opened a new GetGo on McKnight in Ross Monday. 

The PG reports the private company has approximately $9.9 billion in annual sales.
