Meijer ready to build new store in Fishers, Indiana

Footprint will be 75,000 square feet

Meijer is preparing to open a 75,000-square-foot  grocery store in Fishers, Ind., reports the Indianapolis Business Journal

The store will also have a gas station, and the plans were introduced to the Fishers City Council on Monday. 

It will be the second Meijer location in Hamilton County. A 90,000-square-foot location is set to open in July in Noblesville which will employ about 250 workers.

Residents at the council meeting were worried about traffic, light pollution, and noise the new grocery store would create, but Meijer said it would address those concerns. 

Meijer supercenters are typically 150,000 to 200,000 square feet, but the Grand Rapids-based company's recent strategy has been building stores that range between 75,000 and 90,000 square feet. 

As of May 20, Meijer operates 269 stores in the U.S. according to ScrapeHero.
