Meijer is preparing to open its three newest supercenters next month.

The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer will open two new 159,000-sq.-ft. supercenters in Alliance and North Canton, both near Akron, on May 14, increasing the retailer's store count to 55 in the state. A Meijer Express gas station will open on April 18 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.”

Meijer will also open its new 159,000-sq.ft. supercenter in the rural college city of Hillsdale, Mich. on the same day. A Meijer Express gas station will open on April 18 adjacent to the store.

The supercenters will feature grocery staples, fresh produce, bakery, meat, and deli, as well as a floral area, garden center 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.”

The retailer opened its first Ohio store in 1981, and now employs more than 11,000 team members statewide at stores and its distribution and manufacturing facilities in Tipp City. The new Hillsdale store will be the 127th Meijer location in Michigan. The retailer employs about 40,000 employees in its home state.

Meijer operates more than 500 supercenters, grocery stores, neighborhood markets, and express locations throughout the Midwest.
