Meijer Avon

Since announcing its expansion into Northeast Ohio in 2017, Meijer now has confirmed the opening date for three new supercenters. The family-owned retailer will open its Avon, Mentor and Stow locations on Tuesday, May 14. A Meijer Express gas station at the Avon location will officially open on April 18.

“We’re extremely excited to open the doors to our newest stores here in Northeast Ohio,” said Tom Wilson, regional VP, Meijer. “For the last 40 years, customers across the state have enjoyed our fresh grocery options, wide selection of general merchandise and overall value. Now we’re getting ready to bring our one-stop shopping experience to Avon, Mentor and Stow.”

The new 155,000-s.f. supercenters will feature fresh produce, meat and dairy delivered seven days a week, and a bakery. They each also will have pharmacy offering the company’s free prescription program.

“Ohio is very important to us, and these new stores reinforce Meijer’s ongoing commitment to serving the needs of families in the Buckeye State with an incredible combination of service, selection and quality at low prices,” Wilson said.

Meijer has invested heavily in Ohio since opening its first store in the Columbus area in 1981. The retailer has grown steadily, opening 39 stores statewide and employing nearly 10,000 people. The company also maintains a distribution center and dairy processing facility in Tipp City.
