Meijer Coming to Milwaukee?
The Business Journal is reporting that grocer Meijer is proposing a 200,000 square foot store to be located at the corner of Highway 100 and Loomis Road in Franklin. This is the same location where a Super Walmart was proposed a few years ago.
Meijer is a Michigan based grocer with 200 stores in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio. Meijer stores typically offer grocery and department store goods, and oftentimes feature a detached Meijer operated gas station. According to another article on the Business Journal website, Meijer typically builds four or five stores when entering a new market.
The Franklin location is within a mile or so of the former Sendik’s Fine Foods, which failed within a year of opening. Pick ‘n Save has taken over the space that Sendik’s previously occupied.
