Grand Rapids, Mich. -- Meijer will open two 190,000-sq.-ft. supercenters in the northern Indiana towns of Portage and Warsaw on June 13. Meijer operates more than 200 stores in the Midwest and will have 32 stores in Indiana. Meijer expects the stores to create more than 500 new jobs.
The new locations are built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and are the latest in a $200 million investment this year that includes the construction of six new Meijer supercenters, remodel projects for five additional stores in Michigan and Illinois, and upgrades to two distribution complexes.
"Our team has worked very hard to get these supercenters ready and we're excited to bring the Meijer experience to our new neighbors in Portage and Warsaw and the surrounding communities," said Hank Meijer, co-chairman of Meijer.
