GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer here said it is installing electric vehicle charging stations at three of its Michigan stores.
Each store — in Warren, Allen Park and Holland — will receive two charging stations that will be available free to Meijer customers.
The purchase and installations represent an investment of nearly $100,000, the company said. It also said it plans to install charging stations at between 10 and 20 additional stores throughout the Midwest.
"Whether we are providing our customers with reusable bags, placing rooftop wind turbines on stores or offering charging stations for the electric vehicles, we are committed to searching for innovative ways to be green," said Julie Croll, senior vice president of properties and real estate.
Meijer is purchasing the charging stations from Shocking Solutions, Roseville, Mich., which distributes the stations that are made by Coulomb Technologies, Campbell, Calif.
