Meijer breaks ground on second supercenter site in Detroit

Grand Rapids, Mich. – Less than a year after opening a supercenter at the historical Michigan State Fairgrounds on 8 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue, Meijer broke ground this week on a new supercenter in Detroit in the city’s west side area.

Located at Grand River Avenue and McNichols Road, the new site marks the 210-unit regional department store chain’s second location in the Motor City. But more importantly, the company said it represents its “commitment to the city and its residents.”

Co-chairman Hank Meijer elaborated: "The opening of our store in the city of Detroit last summer marked a significant milestone in our company history, and the beginning of a promise to be a part of this community long into the future. We could not be more pleased with its success, and look forward to opening another supercenter here in Detroit."

In addition to the retailer's traditional grocery and merchandise offerings, garden center and gas station, the planned store will feature the Meijer pharmacy and its free prescription program as well as clinical services and immunizations designed to promote family health.
