Giant Eagle’s second Market District Express store opened last week in the tree-lined Columbus, Ohio, suburb of Bexley. At 30,000 square feet, it is twice the size of the Market District Express original in McMurray, Pa. Sandy Skrovan, a Columbus-based retail consultant and director of myRetailPOV.com, told SN the two-level store and restaurant “will well serve the surrounding urban-oriented 'walking' community, a mix of local residents and college students."
