Meijer Spending $50M To Remodel Four Ohio Stores


Last updated on June 14th, 2024 at 10:27 am

Meijer says it will invest nearly $50 million in extensive remodel projects for four supercenters located in Kettering, Miami Township, Englewood and Beavercreek, Ohio.

Work on the four Dayton-area stores begins this month and will be completed in multiple phases so the stores can remain open during the construction process. The project is slated to be finished later this year and will provide each store with a new facade, remodeled gas station and drive-thru pharmacy. The remodeled supercenters also will boast enhanced floor plans to allow for expanded selections in departments throughout the store.

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

The remodel project will allow for wider aisles and redesigned departments in all of the stores, which will feature expanded selections of national and specialty brands. The new pharmacies will be relocated near the front of the stores, Health and Beauty Care will feature prestige skincare and vitamin brands and a new Baby Center will provide a refreshed shopping experience for expectant parents. The pet department will offer a wider assortment of natural pet food.

The expanded apparel department will feature 12-foot-high walls and specialty lighting with updated fitting rooms. It also will feature national brands like Fila, New Balance, Reebok, Amy Byer, Carters, Wallflower, Almost Famous, Union Bay, Chaps and Jessica Simpson.

Other upgrades at each of the four stores will include new finishes, color scheme and tile flooring; redesigned check-out and self-scan lanes; upgraded heating, refrigeration and lighting fixtures throughout the store; improved way-finding signage; upgraded bathrooms; state-of-the-art electronics section; and a revamped photo center.

All stores will be remodeled to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and include a variety of enhancements both inside and outside the store such as exterior lighting and parking lot upgrades. Additionally, the introduction of newer technology in key areas during the remodel process results in reduced energy usage and a more energy-efficient store.

“Our goal is to provide an exceptional shopping experience for our customers,” Meijer added. “Dayton is a community we’ve enjoyed serving for nearly 25 years since our first stores opened in 1991. We are pleased to renew our commitment to meeting the needs of families in the Dayton area.”
