Meijer president and CEO Rick Keyes said: “By opening Meijer Grocery stores, we’re introducing a new way for our customers to shop that provides convenience, value and the great quality our customers have always come to expect from Meijer.
“Our customers’ needs are always evolving, and we’re committed to meeting them where they are.
“That’s why we’re excited to share this new Meijer experience with the Orion and Macomb Township communities.”
