Despite over 37 years in the Buckeye State, Meijer is still pursuing expansion in the thriving Ohio market. Recently, Meijer announced supercenters were slated to open late spring in Avon, Mentor, and Stow, Ohio, with the retailer looking to hire more than 900 employees for its new Cleveland stores.
“Foundations are set, floors are poured, and the walls are up at each of our new Northeast Ohio stores, so every day we’re a little bit closer to opening our first three locations in Greater Cleveland,” said Regional Vice President Tom Wilson. “The opportunity to begin hiring for hourly positions and put together customer-focused teams is the next step in bringing our new neighbors a one-stop shopping solution. We look forward to hiring local team members who can be our future store leaders as we continue to grow in Northeast Ohio.”
The new supercenters will feature produce, meat, and dairy, in addition to non-grocery items (apparel, pet supplies, electronics, etc.) and even a gas station at the Avon location. To fill out these departments, Meijer is hiring full- and part-time positions, including team leaders, cashiers, cake decorators, customer service, receiving clerks, and meat cutters. In a press release, the retailer noted that it is looking for candidates that provide exceptional customer service and would like to advance their career with Meijer.
