The article reports that Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Giant Eagle, after years of perfecting its large-format suburban supermarket strategy, is going small with a new grocery/gas/drug combination hybrid dubbed Giant Eagle Express, which will take direct aim at large-format drug stores. Giant Eagle will open the first such unit, a 13,000-square-footer combining a small market with gas pumps and a drive-through pharmacy, this summer 2007, says Giant Eagle spokesman Rob Borella.
