Well on this rainy day, my brother and I were disppointed we couldn't do Giant Eagle's Curbside Express this afternoon for two reasons. One, it wasn't available one at the main Giant Eagle store--only the Market District location, which we sometimes go to every now and then. Both stores are only ten to fifteen minutes away. And the second reason, according to their FAQ on their website, they don't accept EBT cards at this time. So I've sent them a Facebook message and asked them when will it available and at my local Giant Eagle store. For now, it's kiboshed until I hear back from them. I might have to try GIant Eagle (also not available at my local main Giant Eagle store) some other time. It's only 4.95 for the fee after you make a pick-up reservation spot on the site. And other note, my crockpot strawberry breakfast cake recipe will be put on hold for awhile, since I couldn't find any strawberry muffin mix isn't available at Giant Eagle, Target or Aldi's. You can only find one from Martha White at Walmart. So my brother's going to keep an eye out for me and buy it the next time he's there. It's only about a dollar to pay in store.

I've been to Shop Rite back in New Jersey. I have heard of Stop and Shop. Here's som info on Giant Eagle: Giant Eagle is a supermarket chain with stores in the U.S. states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Maryland. The company was founded in 1918 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and incorporated on March 17, 1933.

@KristenH Those are impressive numbers. I know ShopRite is the main player in the federation of supermarkets around the country. I read somewhere that there are three major federations of supermarkets. And ShopRite is one of them. I know FoodTown belongs to another federation. But there are many supermarkets in those federations. I think it is like a corporation that has these various supermarkets in their umbrella.

I think it's two different grocery store chains. I have heard of Giant. Yeah I was a bit bummed.
