Meijer announced today that it will open two 159,000-square-foot supercenters in Warren, Ohio and Wooster, Ohio on May 16.
The two new Ohio stores will increase the retailer’s store count to 52 in the Buckeye State. The supercenters will feature the full range of Meijer offerings, including home goods, pharmacy, pets, electronics, toys, sports and apparel; as well as grocery staples, fresh produce, bakery, meat, deli, floral items and yard-care products in a garden center setting, the company stated. The stores also will incorporate adjacent Meijer Express gas stations, set to open on April 20.
News about the Ohio stores follows shortly after Meijer announced that it was opening a new, full-range 159,000-square-foot supercenter with a gas station in Elkhart, IN, on May 11. The Elkhart store will be the 11th Meijer retail location in northern Indiana.
In late January, the company debuted its first two metro Detroit Meijer Grocery stores in Lake Orion, MI, and Macomb Township, MI. A new store concept for the supercenter pioneer, Meijer Grocery stores run in size from 75,000 to 90,000 square feet and offer an assortment similar to that of a large supermarket.
Based in Grand Rapids, MI, privately held Meijer operates 501 supercenters, Meijer Grocery, neighborhood markets and Express locations throughout its home state, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
