Meijer To Upgrade Dayton Area Supercenters

Meijer, Inc. plans to invest $50 million to update its Dayton, OH-area supercenters. The remodel projects will cover four supercenters located in Kettering, Miami Township, Englewood and Beavercreek, OH, according to the company.

The remodeling program begins this month, Meijer stated, and is scheduled to proceed in multiple phases so stores can remain open during associated construction, with the finish slated for later this year. The remodeling efforts will provide a new facade for each store as well as a remodeled gas station and drive-thru pharmacy, Meijer maintained.

The remodel also will provide wider aisles and redesigned departments in all of the stores, which will feature expanded selections of national and specialty brands, Meijer noted. Pharmacies will relocate nearer the front of the stores, the health and beauty care department will feature prestige skincare and vitamin brands, a new baby center will offer a refreshed shopping experience for expectant parents, and the pet department will stock a wider assortment of natural pet food.

Other upgrades include new finishes, color scheme and tile flooring, redesigned check-out and self-scan lanes, improved way-finding signage, a state-of-the-art electronics section and a revamped photo center, Meijer related.

The remodels of all four Dayton-area stores will be to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards, with the introduction of technology in key areas that should result in reduced power usage and a more energy-efficient store, noted Meijer. They also will include improvements outside the stores as regards exterior lighting and parking lots.

“We are pleased to reinforce our commitment to Dayton,” said Meijer co-chairman Hank Meijer. “Our customers expect high standards from us, and our investment in these stores will ensure they enjoy the best shopping experience we can provide.”
