About Meijer, Inc.

Meijer (pronounced "Meyer") is a retail giant in the Midwest. The company's huge combination grocery and general merchandise stores average 150,000 to 250,000 sq. ft. each and stock about 220,000 items, including Meijer private-label products. Meijer operates more than 240 locations, mostly in Michigan, but also in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. Customers can choose from dozens of departments, including apparel, electronics, hardware, and toys. Most stores also sell gasoline, offer banking services, and have multiple in-store restaurants. Founder Hendrik Meijer opened his first store in 1934; the business is still family-owned.

Financial Performance

One of America's largest private companies, Meijer does not publicly release full financials. Revenue, however, is estimated to be about $17.5 billion.

Strategy

Being a pioneer in the superstore format has not shielded Meijer from increased competition in its industry, from rival Walmart and online retail giant Amazon as well as warehouse club stores, drugstores, and supermarket chains such as Kroger. In response, the company is focused on new ways to serve its customers and evolve with changing consumer tastes and preferences. In 2018 it opened its first small-format store, Bridge Street Market in Grand Rapids (Michigan), tailored to the specific community it serves. A second neighborhood store in Michigan, Woodward Corner Market in Royal Oak, opened in 2019. Meijer has announced plans for six small-format stores by 2021.

Like many other retailers, particularly grocery retailers, the company has been introducing services such as curbside pickup and delivery and using technology to improve the customer experience. In 2018 it launched the Shop & Scan mobile app, which allows customers to shop and bag as they make their way through the store, thereby avoiding payment lines. By mid-2019 Shop & Scan was available in about 180 Meijer stores in five states.
