Grand Rapids, MI /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ - In its latest innovation to offer a shopping solution tailored to each customer, Meijer today introduced a new physical store concept, called Meijer Grocery , which will be a convenient option for customers looking for a simplified shopping experience while offering communities easier access to fresher food.

The first two Meijer Grocery stores will open in early 2023 in neighborhoods in Orion and Macomb Townships in southeastern Michigan. The new concept is the retailer's latest since it first introduced the neighborhood mini-market concept in August 2018 with the opening of Bridge Street Market on Grand Rapids ' west side .

"Our customers know they can count on us to buy the freshest food at the best price, which has always been at the core of what we do at Meijer," said Rick Keyes , president and CEO of Meijer. "Now , Meijer Grocery will offer the local community the same combination of freshness and value in a food-focused format."

The Meijer Grocery stores will be between 75,000 and 90,000 square feet, and will include the following departments in a small, easy-to-navigate space:

  • Fresh products
  • fresh meat counter
  • Bakery with cake decorators in the same store
  • all delicatessen
  • dry groceries
  • Pharmacy
  • Health and beauty care products
  • Babies, pets and consumer items
  • Cards, items for celebrations and flowers

"We're excited to offer our customers yet another way to shop," said Don Sanderson , Vice President of Meijer Foods. "This new concept store will not only provide our customers with everything they need when doing their weekly shopping, but also a quick and easy solution if they realize they forgot a key ingredient on their list while preparing dinner."

Meijer Grocery will also offer the same convenient ways to shop and save as a Meijer supercenter, such as mPerks, Shop and Scan, Meijer Home Delivery and Pickup. In addition to their smaller size, the design of the Meijer Grocery stores will be convenient as they will have parking attached to a unique corner driveway to maximize the number of parking spaces near the door.
