Meijer is celebrating the opening of three new supercenters.

The retailer opened a new 159,000-sq.-ft. supercenter in Hillsdale, Mich., to. serve more Michigan customers.

"As we celebrate our 90th anniversary this year, providing value and convenience to our customers is still our top priority as a family-owned company," said Hank Meijer, executive chairman. "Not only will we bring those benefits to shoppers in Hillsdale, but we will also invest in the community to ensure we are more than just another retailer, but also a community partner." 

Located at 3600 W. Carleton Road in Hillsdale, the new store features digital shopping solutions, including Shop & Scan, which allows shoppers to scan barcodes via a mobile app and bag their items as they shop. The store also features discounts on surplus food via the Flashfood app, expanded areas for Meijer Home Delivery and Pickup services and mPerks rewards.

Meijer Hillsdale store director Kelli Quintana and her team welcomed customers into the store with a round of applause, which was later followed by a ribbon-cutting event attended by Meijer. Quintana and the store's team members demonstrated their support of the community during the past week by making $25,000 in donations to local organizations, including $10,000 to Davis Middle School to help purchase new science lab equipment, and $10,000 to Key Opportunities, an experienced and skilled vocational rehabilitation organization that helps individuals develop work-related skills. Additionally, the store donated $5,000 to the Hillsdale Rotary to help build a public fitness park and playground in Hillsdale.

Meijer donates at least 6% of its net profit to charitable organizations annually, and each of its stores works with local food banks and pantries to help fight hunger. Since 2008, the retailer's Simply Give program has generated more than $86 million for its food pantry partners throughout the Midwest. The Hillsdale store selected St. Anthony Family Center as its first Simply Give pantry partner.

The stores now feature new larger, height-adjustable changing tables in the family restrooms for customers with disabilities and their caregivers. As in all Meijer stores, the Hillsdale store also offers free access to Aira, an app-based service that provides live navigation assistance to blind and low-vision customers using the camera of their smartphones.
