    Nope.

    But Jerry Chait, the owner (From one of the five founding families), is a Hillary supporter, so I can't imagine they're very firearms friendly.

    I could tell you plenty of personal info, but I'll stick with that.

    My local Giant Eagle (which I believe is not owned by Giant Eagle but rather operates as a franchise) used to have a sign on oneentrance stating no guns (but not on the other entrance). Apparently some patron a long time ago dropped a handgun (Mexican carry?) and it went off - hence the sign. The sign disappeared about six months ago.

    I routinely open carry when running in to get some milk, dog food or cat food (my wife does the major grocery shopping). Haven't had any comments or looks.

    I don't ask permission - I just do it. Asking permission only gives them ideas.

    hey that would be great I just want to inform him and also get a copy of their statement for OCDO and a personal one so I can hand it to some superviser who wants to be god that day.
    I apperciate all the replies since especially the waterloo store is in such a high crime area.

    Chris,
    I received a copy of the information you called our customer care department about. I saw you did not list a telephone number where I could reach you. At your convenience, if you would like to discuss this matter, please contact me at (412) 963-2380 and leave a number where I can reach you.

    Thank you,

    Update Great news
    I spoke with a gentlemen named Rich Casic out of the Bedford Corp Office.
    Waterloo rd Giant Eagle is A ok to OC.
    I spoke with him and he gave me some concerning news that some of the strip owners of some of the GEs have weapons control signs for the whole property since they own it supposedly. So jackson twp I think thats Alrington rd Giant Eagle and another one have all out wespons control for that whole shopping center.
    In any case please look at the signs in the parking lots at Rich Casic told me and Carry away at any Giant Eagle you can as they are Oc friendly.
    Rich Casics number is 216-591-2738 he works out of the bedford corp office and welcomes all of you guys to contact him with any and all concerns for the stores of north eastern OH.
