New Giant Eagle To Have Online Ordering, Curbside Pickup

Giant Eagle Market District in Solon wants to have Curbside Express service, but those plans will need to be approved by city council first.

Giant Eagle Market District in Solon wants to offer Curbside Express service, in which customers can order groceries online and have them delivered to their cars in front of the store.

Plans for Curbside Express would need to be approved by the city's safety committee and then the full city council because the plans require changes to the official project site plan.

The safety committee will discuss the proposal at 6 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.

In a memo, Traffic Engineer Kevin Westbrooks said he does not have a problem with these plans so long as Giant Eagle adheres to the operations schedule, namely to limit flow to three orders every 30 minutes, to avoid congestion in front of the store. The fire department will also need to examine the plan to make sure it doesn't interfere with any emergency situations.

Giant Eagle wants to create three parallel parking spaces in front of the store where customers will come to pick up their groceries.

The Giant Eagle Market District is the grocery chain's most high-end store, and will be the first such store in Northeast Ohio.

The new store is located at Solon Village, and is expected to open sometime this year.

The new GE does not have adequate handicapped parking close to the front door. Handicapped folks will have to park, then walk a distance to the crosswalk. I hope the interior of the store is handicapped friendly with at least one handicapped check out. I think that every councilperson should try to access the front door from the parking lot, while in a wheelchair or walker.
