The first two Meijer Grocery stores will open in early 2023.

Meijer is expanding its brick-and-mortar footprint with its first new format since 2018. 

The Midwest retailer will debut a grocery concept, called Meijer Grocery,  in early 2023 in neighborhoods located in southeast Michigan's Orion Township and Macomb Township. The new banner is the retailer's first new format since it introduced a neighborhood market small format concept in August 2018.

Meijer Grocery stores will range from 75,000 sq. ft. to 90,000 sq.ft.  The stores will be “convenient by design,” the company said,  with parking wrapped around a singular corner entrance to maximize the number of parking spaces near the door.

The new format will include the following departments in a condensed and “quick-to-navigate” footprint:

  • Fresh Produce
  • Fresh Meat Counter
  • Bakery equipped with in-store cake decorators
  • Full-service deli
  • Dry Grocery
  • Pharmacy
  • Health & beauty care
  • Baby, pets, and consumables
  • Card & party and floral

“We're excited to provide our customers with yet another way to shop," said Don Sanderson, group VP of foods at Meijer. "This new concept store will not only provide our customers with everything they need on their weekly shopping trip, but also a quick and easy solution for when they realize they left the key ingredient off their list while cooking dinner."

Based in Grand Rapids, Mich., Meijer operates 262 stores throughout MichiganOhioIndianaIllinoisKentucky and Wisconsin. The company is privately-owned and family-operated.
