Meijer is on the verge of opening two new concept stores that the company says are designed simplify the customer shopping experience.
The new “Meijer Grocery” outlets are set to open in Michigan’s Orion Township and Macomb Township in January. Features include parking that wraps around a singular corner entrance to maximize the number of parking spaces near the door, and stores with just 75,000 to 90,000 square feet of space. By comparison, newer Meijer supercenters are approximately 150,000 square feet.
The condensed layout will be easy for shoppers to navigate while providing the same products customers need for their weekly shopping trip. The new stores also will have the same technologies and services that are available at traditional Meijer supercenter stores, like the Shop and Scan technology which allows shoppers to avoid the checkout while paying with their smart phones, as well as home delivery and pickup.Supermarket News
