Meijer investing $375M to build and remodel stores
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer is investing more than $375 million to build new stores and remodel existing stores in its six-state footprint. This investment includes the construction of seven new Meijer supercenters and 22 different remodel projects.
“These projects represent an investment in our customers, team members and the local communities that have supported us for so long,” Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes said. “We’re also excited that at long last we’ll cross the bridge and open our first stores in Michigan’s upper peninsula.”
By the end of 2017, Meijer will have remodeled and upgraded nearly 90 stores since 2010, as part of a company commitment to provide customers with the best possibly shopping experience. The retailer will have opened more than 50 new stores since 2010.
The seven new Meijer supercenters will be located in Escanaba, Mich.; Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.; McCordsville, Ind.; Franklin, Ind.; Greenfield, Wis.; Howard, Wis. (Green Bay area); and West Bend, Wis.
Grand Rapids-based Meijer operates more than 230 supercenters and grocery stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
