Meijer expands footprint with five new stores

Meijer is growing across the Midwest.

The retailer has opened new locations in Manitowoc, Wis.; Sycamore, Ill.; Bad Axe, Mich.; and Brimfield and Lorain, Ohio. The 159,000-sq.-ft. stores combine a grocery and a full-service meat department with a pharmacy and a wide range of general merchandise items that include women's apparel and beauty care.

"These new stores reinforce our ongoing commitment to serving the needs of communities at a time when everyone is looking for a one-stop shopping experience,"  said Meijer president and CEO Rick Keyes, Meijer, which operates 253 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.  

The new locations also feature such digital shopping as “Shop & Scan,” which allows shoppers to scan barcodes via a mobile app and bag their items as they shop, along with home delivery and pickup services. 

The new stores are currently operating under adjusted hours and maintaining strict COVID-19 safety measures, including safety decals on the floor and protective plexiglass shields at every checkout station. Additionally, employees receive daily health screenings and temperature checks, and are recommended to wear masks. Customers are requested to wear face coverings consistent with applicable state or local guidelines. 

In addition to opening at 6 a.m. and closing at midnight local time, the retailer is also dedicating exclusive store hours to allow more time for senior citizens, customers with chronic health conditions, essential service workers and team members to get their shopping essentials.

"Throughout the past few months, our Meijer team members have worked diligently to prepare these new stores amid unprecedented challenges, and for that we are all proud and inspired," Keyes said. "Our store teams are ready to keep our stores stocked and provide the cleanest shopping environment possible as we work together in the new communities that have welcomed us."
