“We’re excited!” Meijer opens first two supercenters in Wisconsin

GRAFTON  -- Grocery chain Meijer opened its very first stores in Wisconsin on Tuesday, June 23rd. Frank Guglielmi, the senior director of communications at Meijer, joins FOX6 WakeUp to talk about the new locations in Grafton and Kenosha.

“We’re extremely eager to finally open our doors to Wisconsin,” Hank Meijer said. “We’ve been telling southeastern Wisconsin residents for months that they will love our fresh grocery options, wide selection of general merchandise and overall value. Now we’re excited to prove it as we open our first two stores in Grafton and Kenosha, with more to come later this summer.”

The retailer now has 215 stores throughout the Midwest and has grown steadily by focusing on fresh grocery options, value to customers and community partnership. The new supercenters will feature fresh produce, meat and dairy delivered seven days a week, and a bakery offering fresh bread baked four times daily. As Meijer stores are open 24 hours a day, customers will have access to these offerings around the clock.

The stores will also feature a pharmacy offering the company’s free prescription program, which includes leading oral generic antibiotics with a special focus on prescriptions most often filled for children, prenatal vitamins and medications for those with diabetes and high cholesterol.
