Meijer to Open New Small Store Format Under New Banner
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Meijer has been successful throughout the Midwest, but the company may be moving to diversify with a new store format under a new banner.
The 30,000-square-foot urban concept store will break ground on June 26, 2017, according to a company press release, with doors opening as early as fall of 2018. The release called Bridge Street Market “the first-of-its-kind in the region and a unique retail model intended to deliver a convenient, fresh neighborhood grocery option for those who live, work, and play in the area.”
Local news source MLive noted that the market will anchor an ambitious $60 million block-length development being executed through Meijer’s longtime contractor-partner Rockford Construction. The mixed-use development that the market will anchor, located in Grand Rapids, Michigan’s West Side neighborhood, will also feature apartments, a parking deck, and an office and retail building.
