Meijer Begins First of $400 Million Store Investments with Evansville and Owensboro Stores

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

In the first of nine new stores and $400 million dollars worth of investment, Meijer has opened two new 192,000-square-foot supercenters in Evansville, IN, and Owensboro, KY. The move, along with the other seven new locations, are expected to make 3,000 new jobs across the retailer's six-state footprint.

Hank Meijer, CEO, Meijer

"Investing in Evansville and Owensboro was an easy decision for us," explained company CEO Hank Meijer. "We're excited to serve new friends and neighbors. We're looking forward to working with both communities and growing alongside the families of the tri-state area."

The new 24-hour-a-day stores will include a bakery that specializes in custom-decorated cakes and fresh bread baked four times daily, as well as more than 600 varieties of farm-fresh produce and a full-service meat department featuring fresh seafood, Certified Angus Beef and custom cuts of meat, according to a press release.


"Our teams have exceeded expectations every step of the way as we prepared for these openings," Meijer President Rick Keyes said. "Our No. 1 priority is to serve customers, so we're ready to provide our neighbors in Owensboro and Evansville the shopping experience they deserve."

As we’ve previously reported, on top of Meijer’s nine new stores, the company will be remodeling 32 locations. The remaining 7 Meijer supercenters scheduled for 2016 include the following locations:

  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Round Lake Beach, IL
  • Flossmoor, IL
  • Sturgis, MI
  • Flat Rock, MI
  • Sussex, WI
  • Waukesha, WI
