Meijer opens small format Capital City Market

Meijer’s small-format store, Capital City Market, is opening its doors at its newest location in Michigan.

Located in the Block600 development at Michigan Avenue and Larch Street in downtown Lansing, Mich., the market carries a mix of fresh, local and convenient food at low prices, the company said.

“At Meijer, we're committed to being a good neighbor by supporting the communities we serve,” president and CEO Rick Keyes said. “We are excited to be a part of the Block600 development and share our newest fresh market with a community that continues to grow.”

The store features an assortment of fresh and prepared foods, bakery items, fresh meat and deli items, Meijer and national brands, and an estimated 3,000 local and artisanal products, the company said.

A coffee shop, an extensive beer and wine counter, and an expanded international food aisle are also located in the store.

“The need that is met by the Capital City Market for the Stadium District, downtown Lansing and the surrounding area has been in high demand for years — access to fresh, local and affordable food,” Pat Gillespie, president of Gillespie Group that's developing Block600, said.

“Having the opportunity to play an active role in this development, with a Meijer brand that is already respected and trusted by the community has been incredible for our team and will be just as incredible for our residents," Gillespie said.
