Meijer

Meijer200th Store

Meijer, Inc. is the superstore chain in the midwest and is privately held. Annual sales of $12B+. Meijer was founded in Greenville, MI and its main offices are in Walker, MI. Stores are in MI, OH, IL, IN, KY and planned for WI.

Compared to Wal-Mart….Meijers is relatively small. Yet, Meijer competes very well against Wal-Mart….for these reasons:

  • Concentrates its resources in five states.
  • They know their customers.
  • Have always had good customer service.
  • Private corporation….so can take a long-term view.
  • Strong values instilled by the Meijer family.
  • Supports the community.

Has Meijer had some miscues….yes. Yet, over the years they have conducted business responsibly.
