Moon Plaza Giant Eagle to Offer Beer, Wine with Cafe Expansion

The Moon Plaza grocery store will soon expand its offerings, now that it's obtained a license permitting limited liquor sales.

Giant Eagle plans to expand its Moon Township location with a cafe that will include beer and wine on the menu. 

The Moon Township Board of Supervisors on Monday night approved a restaurant liquor license for the University Boulevard store, said Moon communications director Alexis Sargeant. 

In addition to the cafe, which will feature indoor and outdoor seating, the grocery chain will expand the store's prepared foods, deli and bakery sections. 

Sargeant said the expansion will add 50 new jobs to the Moon Township location. 

The cafe's menu will feature premium and craft beers alongside other food items. 

"There will be a two-beer limit per person," Sargeant said of cafe. "It will be more like how the (Robinson Township) Market District is now. Just casual dining." 

Giant Eagle began selling beer in 2011 at the Quaker Village Shopping Center location in Leetsdale. The Market District Giant Eagle in Robinson Township also offers an in-house bottle shop. 

Customers will also be able to purchase six-packs at the Moon cafe. 

No timeline for the cafe's opening was immediately available. Giant Eagle could not be reached for comment. 

The Moon Plaza Giant Eagle was acquired by the supermarket's namesake corporation in July 2011. The store was locally owned by the Romantine family, of Moon Township, since 1986.
