Giant Eagle Unveils First Two-Story Market District Express

Multi-format food, fuel and pharmacy retailer Giant Eagle took the wraps off its first two-story Market District Express, which offers a new signature restaurant alongside a “best of” experience in a more intimate setting, in the Columbus, Ohio, suburb of Bexley.

Located at 2250 E. Main St., the new concept Market District Express, standing at 30,000 square feet, offers customers everything they need to complete their full weekly shop as they explore the two-story location.

“We are thrilled to open our first Ohio Market District Express location in Bexley,” said Dan Donovan, Giant Eagle spokesperson. “As a family-owned company, we appreciate Bexley’s close-knit community, and wanted to deliver a versatile shopping destination that made sense for the city and its families.”

The Bexley Market District Express is also home to the newest addition to the thriving central Ohio food scene – table by Market District. Making its Ohio debut, Market District’s signature restaurant will offer diners a full-service restaurant experience complete with dedicated restaurant seating for 155, and a menu inspired by fresh, seasonal ingredients and the Bexley community.

With prices ranging from $6 - $11 per plate, table by Market District is the perfect lunch or dinner destination. In addition to gourmet meals, table by Market District features one of the most extensive beer and wine lists in Columbus. Customers can enjoy 18 craft beers on tap, order wine by the glass, or select a bottle of wine from the 1,200 varieties available in-store for the selling price of the bottle plus a $10 corkage fee.
