A new convenience store called Georgies’ is expected to open next week at 100 W. Plank Road, most recently the site of Get Go, a convenience store owned and operated by Giant Eagle.

“We made the decision to close our Plank Road GetGo location in January 2017 and have recently reached a sublease agreement for the site,” said Dick Roberts, Giant Eagle spokesman.

BP Oil and a Subway sandwich shop were in that location before GetGo.
