Meijer Enters a New Market with Multiple Supercenters

Meijer Enters a New Market with Multiple Supercenters


AKRON, OH
Monday, May 13th, 2019

While many retailers are betting their chips on e-commerce, Meijer sets its sights on brick-and-mortar locations to bolster sales. The company recently announced the openings of three new supercenters: one in Stow and two more in Northeast Ohio communities. The supercenters in Avon and Mentor are both about 155,000 square feet and feature grocery products on one end and department store merchandise on the other.

“We’ve been looking at this area for a while,” said Ken Barclay, Meijer’s Cleveland Market Director, as reported by Akron Beacon Journal. “Northeast Ohio is a big market for us.”

The addition of the three new supercenters brings Meijer’s Ohio store count to 42.

Barclay commented that the company plans to differentiate itself from competitors by being a better fit for local communities. For instance, the Stow supercenter will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will feature a wide variety of produce along with locally-source products.

“It’s really like a one-stop shop,” Barclay commented.

With retailers deciding if they want to move towards e-commerce or brick-and-mortar, it’s anyone’s game. Deli Market News will continue to report on the latest.
