Meijer Debuts ‘food focus’ Store Format


Meijer, an American supercenter chain, is debuting a grocery store concept that promises to be simpler and more food-focused.

The concept, called Meijer Grocery, will appear in two stores in southeast Michigan next year, according to a press release.

The stores will be located in Orion Township and Macomb Township. Four years ago Meijer introduced a neighborhood market small format concept.

“Our customers know they can count on us for the freshest foods and best value, which has always been at the core of what we do at Meijer,” Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes said in the release. “Meijer Grocery will now provide that same combination of freshness and value in a foods focused format in your local community.”

Meijer Grocery stores will range from 75,000 square feet to 90,000 square feet.

“We’re excited to provide our customers with yet another way to shop,” Don Sanderson, group vice president of foods at Meijer, said in the release. “This new concept store will not only provide our customers with everything they need on their weekly shopping trip, but also a quick and easy solution for when they realize they left the key ingredient off their list while cooking dinner.”
