Grand Rapids, Mich. -- Meijer on Thursday will unveil its newest concept, Meijer Marketplace, opening a store in Melrose Park, Ill.
At 90,000 sq. ft., the new store will be nearly half the size of Meijer's largest supercenters. The smaller-format store, described as a "mini" supercenter concept, will focus on providing local customers with a tailored grocery shopping experience with fresh quality meats and produce, as well as a wide variety of deli, bakery and pantry items.
In the general merchandise area, the Meijer Marketplace will feature key categories such as electronics, seasonal items, toys, home, kitchen and bath items and a pet department, with numerous national brand products throughout the aisles.
