PITTSBURGH - The Giant Eagle supermarket chain based near Pittsburgh is laying off 75 full- and part-time workers, mostly at its headquarters in O'Hara Township and offices near Cleveland.
Spokesman Rob Borella says the chain "identified areas where we could restructure the business so that we could become more efficient." He says the chain often does that, though it doesn't always result in layoffs.
The privately owned chain has about 36,000 employees with 229 supermarkets and 187 GetGo gas station convenience stores in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and West Virginia. About 11,000 of the company's workers are based in southwestern Pennsylvania.
