New convenience stores could be coming to Ohio State’s campus

The former 7-Eleven at 352 W. Lane Ave. may soon be a Giant Eagle GetGo store.

There might be two new convenience stores coming to replace the former 7-Elevens near Ohio State’s campus.

Carry out liquor licenses were filed with the Ohio Division of Liquor Control for the properties of 1551 N. High St. and 352 W. Lane Ave. by Giant Eagle Inc.’s Tamarkin Company. The licenses identify the locations as potential Giant Eagle GetGo stores.

GetGo stores, depending on the location, offer items and services including snacks, beverages, lottery sales, gas, car washes, RedBox DVD rentals and surcharge-free ATM machines, according to the Giant Eagle website.

The applications are pending, said Matt Mullins, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Commerce Division of Liquor Control, in an email.

The 7-Eleven locations, as well as a third location at 1574 Kenny Road, closed about a month ago when the company operating the stores was unable to renegotiate the terms of its lease, according to Columbus Business First.

The Ohio Division of Liquor Control does not have a pending application for the Kenny Road address.

A Giant Eagle spokesman did not provide comment.

Benderson Development Co., based in University Park, Fla., owns all three properties. Requests for comment from the company were not returned.
