About Meijer

Meijer, Inc. (Meijer) is an American retail chain based in Walker, Michigan. Meijer operates supermarket-style stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky. The company stocks a range of home necessities, including groceries, apparel, and assorted health products.

Products & Services

Meijer stores are run as supercenters, combining grocery products with department store goods. Food items, such as canned goods and baking ingredients, are available in addition to cleaning supplies and other necessities. Meijer’s Health and Beauty department markets home care devices, like heart monitors, and hygiene products, like toothpaste and shampoo. The company also stocks electronic devices like tablets, personal computers, and gaming systems. Other recreational items include sports equipment and children’s toys. The apparel category covers shoes, jewelry, and accessories for men and women of all ages. Meijer stores provide furniture in addition to their other products, both for indoor and outdoor decorating. Many company locations also have a Meijer brand convenience store and gas station outside the supercenter.

History

The company was founded in 1934 by Hendrik Meijer, who entered the grocery business with a self-named store in Greenville, Michigan. The first Meijer store offered self-service shopping and shopping carts, an uncommon feature for grocery stores at the time. The company opened new locations in other parts of West Michigan, reaching almost 30 stores by the 1960s. During this time, Meijer began utilizing the combination grocery and department store model that characterizes the company today. Meijer has since expanded to include more than 200 stores. The company also markets its own product brands, such as Meijer Organics and Meijer Naturals.

Job Opportunities

Meijer is a family-owned, private organization. The company offers hourly and salaried positions in its stores, distribution centers, and corporate offices. Experienced professionals and entry-level applicants are encouraged to apply. College students can also take advantage of Meijer’s internship programs or part-time positions.
