Date:9/3/2009

CLEVELAND, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- At a time when many families affected by a difficult economy are struggling with the costs of prescription medications, supermarket retailer Giant Eagle, Inc. is making ten broadly used generic prescription antibiotics in 46 common dosages available for free every day at all of its 210 in-store pharmacies. The major consumer wellness initiative begins today, Thursday, September 3, with a 10:15 AM kickoff press event at Giant Eagle's Legacy Village supermarket located at 25105 Cedar Road in Lyndhurst, Oh.

    4. Ciprofloxacin    8. Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim
