Meijer recently unveiled a small-footprint grocery concept that focuses on convenience and a quick in-and-out shopping experience. The first two Meijer Grocery stores will open in neighborhoods in southeast Michigan in early 2023.
One feature will include parking wrapped around a singular corner entrance to maximize the number of parking spaces near the door.
Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said in a statement, "Meijer Grocery will now provide that same combination of freshness and value in a foods-focused format in your local community."
Meijer Grocery will include the following departments in a condensed, and quick-to-navigate footprint:
- Fresh Produce
- Fresh Meat Counter
- Bakery equipped with in-store cake decorators
- Full-service deli
- Dry Grocery
- Health & beauty care
- Baby, pets, and consumables
- Card & party and floral
Don Sanderson, Group VP of Foods at Meijer, said in a statement, "This new concept store will not only provide our customers with everything they need on their weekly shopping trip, but also a quick-and-easy solution for when they realize they left the key ingredient off their list while cooking dinner."
Meijer Grocery will also offer the same convenient ways to shop and save as a Meijer supercenter, including mPerks, Shop and Scan, Meijer Home Delivery, and Pickup.
