Meijer celebrated the completion of this year’s 22nd newly remodeled supercenter in Rockford, Mich. Company officials said the updated store has been designed to adapt to the needs of today’s customers.
Key updates also include lighting, heating, refrigeration and parking lot improvements. The remodeled 192,000-square-foot Rockford store also provides the Midwestern retailer another flagship location, where the company can test new innovations and programs for consideration at other stores.
Before and After
“We continue to focus on updating our stores to bring the best retail experience to our customers,” Meijer president and CEO Rick Keyes said in a statement. “This was a major remodel, and we are very pleased to make this investment and renew our commitment to Rockford and the Algoma Township community.”
The company celebrated the new store’s completion with a ribbon-cutting event, followed by remarks from Meijer officials and State Sen. Peter MacGregor, State Representative Rob VerHeulen and Rockford Mayor Steve Jazweiec. The Rockford High School Pep Band also performed for the crowd before and after the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Ahold Delhaize invited Winsight Grocery Business to tour The Giant Company’s flagship Riverwalk store in Philadelphia. Though opened back in March 2021, the 65,000-square-foot, two-floor store remains a tour de force of how supermarkets can cater to today’s consumers seeking convenience, wide and deep selection, meal solutions, value and an engaging food shopping experience—and convey it all with astute merchandising.
