Meijer makes ‘family health care a priority’ at two new Indiana supercenters
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer opened new 192,000-sq-ft. supercenters on Tuesday in McCordsville and Franklin, Ind., which include full-service pharmacies that make “family health care a priority.” The prescription program includes oral generic antibiotics with a special focus on prescriptions most often filled for children, prenatal vitamins, and medications for those with diabetes and high cholesterol. Since its inception in 2006, the program has filled more than 39 million free prescriptions, saving Meijer customers more than $536 million, stated the company.
"We opened our first stores in Indiana 23 years ago, so we are very pleased to be able to now offer our McCordsville and Franklin neighbors with the service, quality, selection and low prices that Meijer customers in other Indiana communities have come to expect," Co-Chairman Hank Meijer said. The supercenters, intended to be a one-stop shopping option, also offers the Shipt home delivery service, which recently launched across Indianapolis and continues to gain popularity with customers looking for another convenient way to shop.
The grocery options that Meijer offers to shoppers include more than 600 varieties of farm-fresh produce and a full-service meat department that features fresh seafood, certified Angus beef and custom cuts of meat. The bakery specializes in custom-decorated cakes and fresh bread baked four times daily. The locations also feature 24-hour gas stations.

As part of its ongoing community support, Meijer donates more than 6% of its net profit to charitable organizations annually, and each of its stores works with local food pantries and banks to help fight hunger at the local level. Since 2008, the retailer's Simply Give program has generated more than $28 million for its food pantry partners throughout the Midwest.
As part of its grand opening celebration, the new Meijer locations will feature a variety of events beginning Thurs., May 4. The first 200 customers to enter the store after 6 a.m. on May 4 will receive a Meijer mystery gift card with a value of $5, $10 or $20.
"Our teams have exceeded expectations every step of the way as we prepared for these openings," Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes said. "Our top priority is to serve customers, and we're excited to provide our neighbors in McCordsville and Franklin the shopping experience they deserve."
