Meijer Building Superstore
(2008-07-04)
(wgvu) - Meijer Inc.'s oldest supercenter will
become its first new store in Grand Rapids' city limits in 11
years.
The Grand Rapids Press reports Friday that the store is
scheduled to be replaced. Grand Rapids-based Meijer plans to keep
the supercenter open while it builds a new store next to the
existing site, with the new store opening in 2010.
The building began as a 17,000-square-foot grocery store in
1958. It became the retail chain's first supercenter in 1962,
adding 75,000 square feet to house non-grocery items.
The project must be approved by the city, but Mayor George
Heartwell says he's delighted with the plan.
