Meijer opened a supercenter on Thursday in Bowling Green, Ky., marking its southernmost location. The 190,000-s.f. store at 1676 Westpark Dr. has created more than 270 new jobs and will provide local residents with fresh produce delivered daily, affordable, high-quality merchandise as well as a full-service pharmacy that makes family healthcare a priority, according to the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer.

“We are very excited to finally bring the Meijer experience to our neighbors in Bowling Green and the surrounding communities,” Meijer Co-Chairman Hank Meijer said. “This supercenter reinforces our commitment to meeting the needs of families by providing positive solutions to everyday problems. As our 10th store in Kentucky, it represents continued growth and investment in the Midwest.”

Meijer kicked off its opening celebration with a ribbon-cutting event inside the store, followed by remarks from Meijer officials and local dignitaries as well as a presentation of a $25,000 check to help fund Warren County Public School’s new Synergy Center.

The new Bowling Green store is built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and features more than 600 varieties of fresh produce, a meat department offering neighborhood butcher shop service with custom cuts and a bakery carrying fresh bread baked four times daily.

In addition to Meijer’s traditional grocery and merchandise offerings and garden center, the new pharmacy will offer the company’s free prescription program, as well as clinical services and immunizations designed to promote family health. The prescription program includes leading oral generic antibiotics with a special focus on prescriptions most often filled for children, prenatal vitamins and medications for those with diabetes and high cholesterol. Since its inception in 2006, the Meijer free prescription program has filled more than 19 million free prescriptions, saving Meijer customers more than $284 million, the company says.

“Our team has worked very hard to get this store ready and we’re excited to bring one of our stores to Bowling Green,” said Bill Thompson, store director of the Bowling Green Meijer. “We always strive to offer variety to our customers and look forward to bringing our fresh offerings to the Bowling Green area. Whether you’re looking for fruits and vegetables delivered daily, getting your yard ready for summer or seeking answers about a nagging health concern, we look forward to providing value to anyone who steps through our door.”
