Meijer Market Format Stores are a new and exciting neighborhood grocery store model, created to listen and react to the communities they are embedded in. Our stores are focused on community first, genuine customer service, fresh produce, local products, and low prices every day. We are rooting ourselves in urban and suburban locations throughout the Midwest, and are operated independently from the rest of the Meijer Supercenter chain. This allows each store the autonomy to truly reflect the neighborhood, to source locally, and to evolve with the needs of the people who live and shop there
