The local owners of Moon Township's grocery tomorrow will transfer ownership of the supermarket to its namesake corporation.
Fred and Tina Romantine, who have operated the University Boulevard store under the Giant Eagle name since 1986, have announced their retirement. They will transfer all store operations to Giant Eagle Inc.
The Romantines, who reside in Moon, decided to retire to "spend more time with family and travel," according to a statement from a Giant Eagle spokesman.
The Romantines could not be reached for comment. A manager at the store declined to comment on the transfer.
The store will close early at 7 p.m. tonight and reopen at 7 a.m. tomorrow.
The store's 180 workers will continue to be employed at the corporate-owned store.
