Giant Eagle Announcement

Giant Eagle Closure at Buckeye Plaza

Dear friends of Buckeye Shaker Square Development Corporation, community stakeholders, residents, merchants and concerned citizens.

Buckeye Shaker Square Development Corporation is aware and disappointed of the announced closure of the Giant Eagle at the Buckeye Plaza and the Get-go station on 116th and Buckeye Roads

These stores provided access to fresh healthy foods, convenience shopping and pharmacy for the residents of the community many of whom are elderly and rely on public transportation. We also understand there are a number of jobs at risk and the impact that a closed facility can have on the plaza.

With that in mind, Buckeye Shaker Square Development Corporation is engaged and remains committed to the plaza and the community. We are always prepared for contingency planning if or when any business decides to cease operations in the Greater Buckeye Shaker Square area.

We are in conversations with Giant Eagle, the Buckeye Plaza Property ownership group, City Council and many other stakeholders and residents about proposed options going forward to ensure that your concerns are heard and your needs are met.

Please reach out to our Deputy Director, Vaughn P. Johnson at 216-491-8450 or via email at vaughnj@buckeyeshaker.org should you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Sincerely,

John G. Hopkins

Executive Director
