About Meijer

We opened our doors more than 85 years ago with the goal of helping people provide for themselves and their family. Today we’re a multi-billion dollar retailer with more than 70,000 Team Members across 6 states. Our Midwest geography includes corporate offices in Grand Rapids, Michigan, plus manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, and over 240 stores across Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

As the pioneer of the "one-stop shop" 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 Fred Meijer, "...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. Meijer is committed to the communities we serve. That commitment is realized through our support of non-profit organizations, our sponsorship of hundreds of community events, and the donation of 6 percent of our net profit to various charities each year.

At Meijer, we believe in doing great work while always taking care of what's truly important: family. Because for more than 85 years, that's just the right way of doing things.

Our History

Meijer first opened during the Great Depression when Hendrick 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.

Executive Chairman Hank Meijer and his brother Doug Meijer lead the company's Board of Directors along with a handful of experienced business leaders, including Vice Chairman Mark Murray as well as President and CEO Rick Keyes.

“Know that when you walk through the door, there is dignity and respect.”
