A Replacement for Giant Eagle: Here's What it Won't Be

Company reps aren't saying, but they did narrow it down

Strongsville Patch what they'd like to see go into the store -- if, as proposed, the company moves out of its  space and store on Pearl Road.

The: Trader Joe's  and Whole Foods Market.

Don't look for either.

Not surprisingly, Giant Eagle representatives said at a recent meeting with city officials that the replacement, when picked, will not be a grocery store.

Company officials said several tenants are already interested in the 70,000-square-foot store.

Their names are not being released yet.

But it's a common practice for retailers to refrain from leasing their old space to a competitor.

Giant Eagle is asking voters to rezone part of the and Honey Hut property to make way for a 110,000-square-foot Market District store.

In the Strongsville Patch poll, the next-highest vote-getters were DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse), Toys R Us and IKEA

Also mentioned were Sam Ash music store or a Guitar Center, a Gander MountainNordstrom RackContainer StorePetSmartCheesecake FactoryMichael's and "a GIANT ."

Several good choices - Could you also add a Barnes & Noble Book Store to those choices? Even though people are using the Internet, IPads, Readers, and IPhones for reading purposes, the Barnes & Noble stores at Fairlawn and at Crocker Park are always busy. There's a variety of products for sale in addition to books, and there are also coffee shops in the stores for taking a break, reading, or socializing.
