Meijer Readies New Stores

The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based retailer is preparing to open its three newest supercentres next month.

The company will open two new 159,000sq ft supercentres in Alliance and North Canton, both near Akron, on 14 May, increasing the retailer’s store count to 55 in the state. A Meijer Express gas station will open on 18 April adjacent to the North Canton location.

“Ohio has always been significant to us, as it was the first state we expanded to outside of Michigan,” said Todd Anderson, VP of the Ohio region for Meijer. “The feedback we’ve received from customers here in Northeast Ohio about our value and convenience has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to building upon that momentum specifically here in Alliance and North Canton.”

The supercentres will feature grocery staples, fresh produce, bakery, meat and deli, as well as a floral area, garden centre and home goods. The new stores in Ohio and Michigan will also include a pharmacy, health and beauty care, an expansive pet department, electronics, toys, sports and apparel.

“As we celebrate the 90th anniversary of Meijer this year, we’re thrilled to be opening a new store in our home state to mark the occasion,” said Shawn Buckner, VP of the Mid-Michigan region for Meijer. “We know value and convenience are top of mind for our customers and we look forward to providing a one-stop shopping experience that offers both here in Hillsdale.”
