A new banner store expands both Meijer’s retail footprint and its entrance into a new market. The grocer recently opened the doors on its Capital City Market in Lansing, Michigan.
“Meijer is committed to our communities, which is why we’re so proud that Capital City Market will help fill a need in downtown Lansing when we open our doors next month,” said Rick Keyes, President and CEO of Meijer, in a press release issued in September. “The team is working hard to get ready, and we’re looking forward to working with community partners to make a positive impact in the area.”
Local and artisan items are the center of this 37,000-square-foot store, with an estimated 3,000 products coming from local suppliers.
The market is focused on bringing a mix of fresh, convenient food and value to customers in the region, and marks the retailer’s first small-format store in mid-Michigan, according to Store Manager Mitch Cook.
“I have a great team in place and am confident Capital City Market will provide a unique shopping experience to customers in Lansing’s downtown,” said Cook, who joined Meijer in 2018 with more than 15 years of retail experience. “We are excited to open our doors, be a good neighbor and work every day to have the best products on our shelves.”
