LYNDHURST, Ohio — Giant Eagle is adding curbside pickup slots at its Legacy Village and Southland stores for frontline health care workers.

Health care workers will be able to place their grocery orders online for pickup using a link provided by their employer.

“We are extremely aware of and grateful for the sacrifices health care workers make every day in order to provide much needed care for our communities,” said Jannah Jablonowski, Giant Eagle spokesperson. “Providing easy access to essential nourishment through our curbside pickup service is just one small way we can thank them for their efforts.”

The reserved slots will be within the 8-10 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. pickup hours everyday.

“Our caregivers are working tirelessly and continue to keep our patients safe during these challenging times,” said Herbert Wiedemann, M.D., Cleveland Clinic’s Chief of Staff. “We are grateful that organizations such as Giant Eagle are supporting them with services such as this. Working as a team is more important now than ever before. Expanding our team to include partners like Giant Eagle helps make a difference for our patients, our caregivers, our organization and community.”

GetGo locations will also be offering a free cup of coffee or fountain beverage to any health care worker who visits in uniform or shows a valid badge with their Advantage Card.
