Grand Rapids, Mich. -- Meijer announced that it has selected U.S. Vision as its exclusive vision center in its stores moving forward in an effort to enhance its retail healthcare services across the Midwest.
U.S. Vision, a separately owned and operated company based in Glendora, N.J., is currently a tenant in 50 Meijer stores in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio, and has plans to open 19 more vision centers in Meijer stores this year. All of its vision centers will be renamed "Meijer Optical" by the end of the month.
"As a family-focused company, Meijer believes in providing our customers with opportunities to address their healthcare needs in one stop," Meijer drug store VP Nat Love. "The Meijer Optical shops will round out the robust services our stores already offer, including full-service pharmacies, health clinics and our free medication program, that meet our customers' needs."
U.S. Vision is a leading provider of vision care products and services in the United States and Canada, and represents the sixth largest retail optical chain in the nation. Meijer began working with U.S. Vision in December 2011.
