Several stores in the US have already shut their doors due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. However, most grocery stores will still remain open to serve the public with basic necessities. Giant Eagle is one such supermarket chain that will keep its doors open to sell food as well as basic need products.
However, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Giant Eagle stores will no longer be working on their regular hours. Read to know more about Giant Eagle hours during the pandemic, as well as their senior hours for elderly and at-risk customers.
Starting from March 30, 2020, Giant Eagle supermarkets will only remain open from 7 AM to 9 PM, for all seven days of the week. All GetGo outlets adjacent to Giant Eagle stores will also follow the same timings as the supermarket chain.
