Meijer was founded in 1934 in Greenville by Hendrik Meijer. The first employee was Hendrik’s 14 year old son Frederik (Fred) Meijer. Additional locations were opened in Ionia and Cedar Springs.
By the 1960s, there were two dozen locations in Western Michigan.
In 1962, the first modern layout “supercenter” design was opened in Grand Rapids.
Under increased competition from Wal-Mart, Meijer has had to lay off a significant number of employees in recent years. They have also outsourced almost all their Information Technology positions to India.
In 2011, long time CEO Fred Meijer passed away at the age of 91.
Today, Meijer is one of America’s largest private companies. They operate nearly 200 stores in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky.
