The McGinnis Sisters specialty stores are run by the coincidentally named McGinnis sisters. This is a truly familial enterprise, founded by their mother and father in 1946. The daughters expanded the store's selection and gravitational pull throughout the years while still retaining the literal mom 'n' pop attention to detail and quality. Fresh and local products dominate the shelves in each of the cozy markets. Chicken and pork fill meat cases, while recently reeled catches grace the icy displays at the seafood counter. You'll find quality deli meats and even freshly prepared lunch sandwiches ($4.99–$5.99) at the in-house delicatessen. Follow your whiskers to sniff out locally acquired cheese or daily-made bakery sensations.

We are a family owned and operated business.
The Getaway Cafe has its own way of defining the notion of a family-friendly restaurant: Owned by husband and wife Lou and Nancy Manolios, the restaurant has seen all five of their daughters work between its walls, and Lou's nephew, Christopher, is the general manager. Running a restaurant was a lifelong dream of Lou's. He grew up in a close family and was washing dishes at his grandfather's restaurant at the age of 12, an age when many boys are only washing their footballs. Now, at Getaway Café, he and his wife have created a large, eclectic menu with everything from baby-back ribs to fresh seafood and weekend breakfasts. They also host a variety of events such as martini nights with live entertainment and wine dinners.
Whole Foods Market's commitment to the interdependent network of sustainable farms and organic producers can be seen in its carefully selected product lines. The homegrown 365 Everyday Value brand makes it easy to eat naturally, organically, and economically. It features an array of items from all product categories, including groceries, vitamins, household items, and more—each manufactured to meet the rigorous quality standards woven into the fabric of Whole Foods Market, which itself is made from 100% alpaca wool.
Giant Eagle's spread of more than mild to pungent cheeses amasses more than 400 varieties of aromatic curds from around the world. Parmigiano reggiano ($18.99/lb.) complements rustic tomato sauce and earthy olive oil with firm bites that break into chunks for salty hors d'oeuvres. Cotswold cheese combines mellow double Gloucester with onion and chives ($12.99/lb.), a savory mix that melts into a smooth, hearty sauce when heated on stovetops or placed in a tanning booth. Discerning palates gravitate toward Market District red-wax gouda ($8.99/lb.), a silky cheese whose mild taste artfully underscores the delicate flavors of white wines and fruity reds. A cheese glossary helps shoppers navigate the aisles, paring hard or soft wedges with a fondue recipe or ripened sweater. Additionally, Giant Eagle’s low-fat cheeses deliver fortifying doses of calcium while cutting down on calorie content.
The heady smell of fresh spices and artisan cheeses, combined with antiqued wide-plank wood floors and exposed-brick walls, inspires fantasies of a neighborhood shop set in a Greek village. Gus Stamoolis, son of Orestus Stamoolis, continues the business started by his father and uncles in 1929. Alongside his family and friendly staff, he imports oils and spices from fine Mediterranean distributers, as well as cheeses from Greece, Cyprus, Spain, and France. The Strip District fixture’s many offerings also include a catalog of olives, fine meats, and more than 30 homemade spreads with flavors such as asiago cheese and spicy feta.
