Meijer has opened 192,000-square-foot supercenters in Evansville, IN, and Owensboro, KY, the first of nine new locations that are part of the company’s investment of more than $400 million in new and remodeled stores.
“Investing in Evansville and Owensboro was an easy decision for us,” said Hank Meijer, CEO of Meijer. “We’re excited to serve new friends and neighbors. We’re looking forward to working with both communities and growing alongside the families of the tri-state area.”
In addition to the retailer’s traditional grocery and merchandise, garden center and 24-hour gas stations, the Evansville and Owensboro Meijer pharmacies will offer drive-thru pick up and the company’s free prescription program. The new stores are built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and will be open 24 hours a day.
“Our teams have exceeded expectations every step of the way as we prepared for these openings,” said Meijer president Rick Keyes. “Our number one priority is to serve customers, so we’re ready to provide our neighbors in Owensboro and Evansville the shopping experience they deserve.”
Meijer operates 225 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
