Giant Eagle said it won't sell the August issue of Rolling Stone, which is being criticized for its cover photo of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The O'Hara grocery chain joins national drug store chains Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens in pulling the magazine from store shelves this week.

In a written statement, Giant Eagle said, “We are continually mindful of customer feedback we receive on any of the products we carry. Given the controversial nature of the August issue of Rolling Stone Magazine, the decision has been made to discontinue sales of the publication in our stores.”
