Formal agreement closure officially joins fresh food-focused GetGo and Ricker’s brands.

Giant Eagle, one of the nation’s largest multi-format food, fuel and pharmacy retailers, has finalized the acquisition of Indiana-based Ricker Oil Company.

Three years after introducing GetGo Cafe + Market concept, Giant Eagle now has seven locations in Central Indiana. The Ricker’s acquisition provides Giant Eagle with additional scale in the Indiana market as well as opportunities to leverage the strength of both the GetGo and Ricker’s brands.

 “Our acquisition of the Ricker’s chain supports this strategy, and we look forward to bringing together the best of both businesses in Indiana,” said Polly Flinn, Giant Eagle’s Executive Vice President & General Manager of GetGo.

In addition to acquiring the 56 Ricker’s convenience stores located in the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne metro areas and throughout Central Indiana, the agreement also includes Ricker Oil’s wholesale fuels distribution business of approximately 80 branded supply accounts located in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
