Meijer adding superstores in northeast Ohio
Michigan-based mass retailer Meijer has confirmed May 14 as the opening date for three new superstores in northeast Ohio.
The midwest superstore chain revealed its expansion plans for northeast Ohio in 2017 and has announced that the first three locations within the region will be in Avon, Mentor and Stow.
Meijer leadership and local dignitaries will mark the first day of business with ribbon-cutting ceremonies at each of the three stores. As part of the grand-opening celebrations, the retailer will also feature special promotions and events at each store beginning on Sunday, May 19. A Meijer Express gas station at the Avon location will officially open on April 18.
The 155,000-square-foot, 24-hour supercenters will feature fresh produce, meat and dairy delivered seven days a week, and a bakery offering bread and other items baked four times daily.
Each store also will feature a pharmacy offering the company’s free prescription program. This includes leading oral generic antibiotics, with a special focus on prescriptions most often filled for children, as well as prenatal vitamins and medications for those with diabetes and high cholesterol.
"We're extremely excited to open the doors to our newest stores here in northeast Ohio," said Tom Wilson, Meijer’s regional vice president. "For the last 40 years, customers across the state have enjoyed our fresh grocery options, wide selection of general merchandise and overall value. Now we're getting ready to bring our one-stop shopping experience to Avon, Mentor and Stow."
