A major retailer in the area has opened a new location.
Meijer recently cut the ribbon on a new, 155,000-square-foot supercenter at 4075 32nd Ave. in Hudsonville. The store is Meijer’s 117th location in Michigan and is one of six new Meijer supercenters projects throughout the Midwest this year.
In addition to Meijer’s “shop and scan” concept, whereby shoppers can scan while they shop and quickly pay at checkout, the new store also is piloting the re-introduction of baggers to help further reduce checkout time.
“We are pleased to debut our new store in Ottawa County and are excited to use this location to pilot our new checkout system,” Executive Chairman Hank Meijer said. “If we’re just another retailer in the community, we’re not doing our job right. So we continue to find new ways to make shopping at Meijer easier than ever before.”
The 24-hour store was built to LEED certification, using recycled construction materials and LED lights. Like other Meijer stores, the Hudsonville supercenter features a drive-thru pharmacy, Starbucks Coffee shop and a deli with grab-and-go food items. More than 300 employees have been hired at this location.
As part of its grand opening celebration, the new Meijer store will feature mystery gift cards with $5, $10 or $20 value for the first 200 customers on Sunday, July 15, beginning at 7 a.m.
