We opened our doors more than 80 years ago with the goal of helping people provide for themselves and their family. Today we’re a multi-billion dollar retailer – the nation’s 19th largest privately held company – with more than 65,000 employees across six states.
Our Midwest geography includes corporate offices in Grand Rapids, Michigan, plus manufacturing facilities, distribution centers and over 200 stores across Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
As the pioneer of the “one-stop shopping” concept, we offer excellent customer service, low prices, quality foods and a broad selection of national and Meijer brand items.
Our growth and innovation remain focused on our core values: customers, competition, freshness, family, and health and safety.
As a family-owned company, we’re grounded in the philosophy of our founder, “… take care of your customers, team members, and community … and all of those will take care of you, just like a family.”
That’s why we’re committed to the communities we serve – through the support of nonprofit organizations, sponsorship of hundreds of community events, and by donating 6 percent of our net profit to charity each year.
At Meijer, we believe in doing great work in our stores, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and corporate offices, while always taking care of what’s truly important – family. Because for more than 80 years, that’s just the right way of doing things.
Meijer first opened during the Great Depression when Hendrik Meijer, and his 14-year-old son, Fred, fulfilled a need in the community. With a focus on customer experience and respect for team members, they evolved the small grocery store into a one-stop shopping experience – the nation’s first supercenter.
Today, brothers and co-chairman Hank Meijer and Doug Meijer lead the privately-held company, along with a handful of experienced business leaders, including Co-CEO and Vice Chairman Mark Murray and President Rick Keyes.
