Meijer on Thursday opened a new supercenter in Terre Haute, Indiana. The 195,000-s.f. store at State Road 46 and New Margaret Drive offers fresh produce and Certified Angus Beef delivered daily, affordable, high-quality merchandise and a full-service pharmacy that makes family healthcare a priority, according to the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based retailer.

“We are pleased to bring a fresh option to our neighbors in Terre Haute and its surrounding communities,” Co-Chairman Hank Meijer said. “Whether it’s shopping for a family meal, preparing for a vacation or seeking answers about a nagging health concern, this supercenter represents our ongoing commitment to help provide a healthier, balanced lifestyle for anyone who steps through our door.”

With 34 stores now located throughout Indiana, Meijer’s new store is built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and is open 24 hours a day. The grocery options that Meijer offers include more than 600 varieties of farm-fresh produce and a full-service meat department that sells fresh seafood, Certified Angus Beef and offers custom cuts of meat. The bakery specializes in custom-decorated cakes and fresh bread baked four times daily.

“The City of Terre Haute welcomes Meijer into our community,” Mayor Duke Bennett said. “Meijer is well known as a great place to shop for a wide variety of household products and we greatly appreciate their decision to invest in our community.”

Meijer kicked off its opening celebration with a ribbon-cutting event inside the store, followed by remarks from Meijer officials and local dignitaries. Store Director Mark Campbell presented a $25,000 check to Vigo County Public Schools for improvements to its new aquatic center. He also presented a check for $5,000 to Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank, which distributes the equivalent of more than 2.5 million meals each year in west central Indiana.

Meijer says it works hard to support the communities where its customers and team members work and live. That’s why the retailer says it donates more than 6 percent of its net profit to charitable organizations annually, and each of its stores works with local food pantries and banks to help fight hunger in local communities. Since 2008, the retailer’s Simply Give program has generated more than $16 million for its food pantry partners throughout the Midwest.

The new Indiana store’s pharmacy features drive-thru pick up and offers 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 program has filled nearly 27 million free prescriptions, saving Meijer customers more than $390 million.

Among other one-stop shopping highlights, the store’s health and beauty care section carries prestige skin care and vitamin brands and a new Baby Center provides an inviting shopping experience for expectant parents, the retailer says. The apparel department features national brands like Skechers, Fila, New Balance, Reebok, Amy Byer, Carters, Wallflower, Almost Famous, Union Bay, Chaps and Jessica Simpson. The pet department offers an assortment of natural pet food.

“Our team has worked very hard to prepare for this opening, and we’re excited to bring our store to this great community,” Campbell said.
