Meijer Coming to Milwaukee?

April 27 by
Filed under: Grocery 

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.

    Sarah – Based on the comments in the Business Journal article, it seems unlikely that they would build an individual store in that area of the state. Their typical plan includes four our more stores in a geographical area.
