Meijer Unveils New Grocery Store Concept; Rick Keyes and Don Sanderson Comment
GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Move over retailers, there is a new grocery concept in town. Recently, Meijer introduced its latest brick-and-mortar concept called Meijer Grocery, which will offer consumers convenience through a simplified shopping experience and easier access to fresh foods.
"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," President and Chief Executive Officer Rick Keyes said. "Meijer Grocery will now provide that same combination of freshness and value in a foods-focused format in your local community."
With the unveiling of this new concept, the retailer announced that it will be opening two Meijer Grocery locations in early 2023 in neighborhoods within southeast Michigan’s Orion Township and Macomb Township, a release stated. This is the newest store concept created by Meijer since it debuted the neighborhood market small format concept in August 2018.
Each Meijer Grocery store will range from 75,000 to 90,000 square feet and will include condensed versions of popular departments including fresh produce, fresh meat, a bakery, a full-service deli, and more.
"We're excited to provide our customers with yet another way to shop," said Don Sanderson, Group Vice President of Foods. "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."
