The article reports on the progress of grocery market leader Giant Eagle Inc. Capping its 75th year in business, Giant Eagle's launch of two hybrid Market District stores could be seen as the retailer's gift to its hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Both of the Market District stores began as corporate Giant Eagle units and were expanded and converted over the course of months. Both have their own personalities and offer a different retail presentation from the chain's 200-plus conventional stores.
