Foodperks Madness And More Morning Reading in Cleveland: Feb. 5

NewspaperStacks.jpg
- Giant Eagle, perennial grocer of choice for many in Northeast Ohio, announced that it will discontinue the Foodperks program, per The PD. A spokesperson claimed the program had become too complicated to maintain, citing customer concerns. It's not a huge loss, as any Giant Eagle devotee would likely explain, but before your heart seizes up, fear not: The company has no plans to do away with the near religious Fuelperks program.

- Relatedly, Solon police spent last weekend arresting people on four separate incidents of Giant Eagle theft.

- West Side Market's future is looking up, thanks to the likes of Michael Symon and the Cash Mobs community. We'll catch you at the market, fist-deep in a gyro, when everything opens back up.

- As an update to the T.J. Lane trial, The News-Herald writes that the judge will not move the proceedings anywhere else.
