An exciting supply chain development is in the works for Giant Eagle, as the grocer gets ready to open its first automated micro-fulfillment center (MFC) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
According to a report from Yahoo!Finance, Giant Eagle is actively recruiting for several roles involved with operating the MFC—the job listings were what tipped sources off on the retailer’s latest move. The grocer will use this MFC to fulfill curbside pickup orders, a retail strategy adopted by most within the grocery game.
The facility will be located at 1775 South Braddock Ave. in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and will use a tote-based system to move products, according to the announcement about the hiring event. A Giant Eagle spokesperson confirmed that the retailer is looking for workers for the MFC but declined to provide details about the facility. “While we are in the process of hiring for this location, it is still a little bit early for us to share additional detail about the space,” the grocer said in a comment.
