Meijer Opens Elkhart, IN Store


Meijer has officially opened a 159,000 square foot supercenter in suburban Elkhart, IN.  The store will feature produce, dairy, deli and meat sections and will incorporate a pharmacy and the usual departments associated with Meijer locations.  Electronic innovations include scanning of barcodes for the Shop and Scan system and the store offers home delivery and pickup.


Executive Chairman, Hank Meijer, stated, “This new store reinforces our ongoing commitment to serving the needs of local families who are looking for more value and convenience.”  He added, “We are honored by the warm welcome and will be a strong community partner while providing the best shopping experience to customers in the Elkhart area.”  To commemorate the opening, Meijer donated $30,000 to three local charities.


During late May, Meijer will inaugurate an additional two supercenters in Warren and Wooster OH.


At the present time, Meijer operates close to 500 supercenters in addition to Neighborhood Markets and Meijer Express stores in six Midwest states.
