Giant Eagle Cuts 75 Jobs
Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle is cutting 75 positions in a move the company said is part of its ongoing effort to reduce costs and operate more efficiently.
Most of the effected team members have been notified of the layoffs, which are being made at multiple levels across the company’s corporate organization, Giant Eagle spokesman Dan Donovan told PG late Thursday.
The positions being trimmed were identified through reviews done in the routine course of business, Rob Borella, senior director of corporate communications, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Giant Eagle employs 36,000 full- and part-time workers in four states; the grocery chain operates 229 supermarkets and 187 fuel and convenience stores in western Pennsylvania, north central Ohio, northern West Virginia and Maryland.
