Meijer will be expanding its Midwest footprint this summer to Wisconsin.
The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer announced plans to open four stores in the Milwaukee area this summer — two in Grafton and Kenosha in June and two in Oak Creek and Wauwatosa in August.
Meijer currently has 213 supercenters and grocery stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
“Foundations are set, floors are poured and the walls are up at our four new Wisconsin stores,” Meijer senior director of communications Frank Guglielmi said in a media statement. “All of us at Meijer are looking forward to bringing the Meijer experience to new customers in Wisconsin this summer.”
The Wisconsin stores will be open 24 hours and include pharmacies and fresh food departments. The Kenosha and Oak Creek locations will have convenience stores and gas stations that will open a month before the supercenters.
Meijer announced the store director appointments — with Polly Emelander at the Oak Creek store, Tom Livernois at the Wauwatosa store, Steve Talbert at the Grafton store and Don Mettler at the Kenosha store. The company said it will be hiring for more than 1,000 positions in March.
