Meijer plans to open its smallest urban store yet — but with a twist.

The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based grocer’s newest store will be nearly 30,000 sq. ft., but it won’t feature the Meijer moniker. Instead, the store will go by the name, Bridge Street Market. Construction begins in July, and is expected to be open for business in the early fall of 2018.

The store, which is described as a first-of-its-kind in the region, will center on accessible fresh produce and full grocery offerings for the community. “The unique retail model is intended to deliver a convenient, fresh neighborhood grocery option for those who live, work and play in the area,” according to the grocer.

The community grocery store will anchor a $60 million block-long collaboration and mixed-use development from Meijer's longtime contractor, Rockford Construction. It will reside alongside apartments, a parking deck and an office and retail building, according to the retailer.
