Meijer Community Homepage Salutation

Meijer is a family-owned company serving the needs of families at each of our stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

With the help from our Team Members and customers, we’re able to make the community a better place to live, work and play.

As we grow, we follow a simple philosophy established by our grandfather and father 80 years ago: “take care of your customers, team members and community … and all of them will take care of you, just like a family.”

We invite you to visit this site often to learn about how much our Simply Give campaign is helping our neighbors, about our sponsorship that is bringing the LPGA back to Michigan and more. Welcome to our Meijer Community!

Sincerely,

Hank and Doug Meijer's Signature

Meijer in the Community

A Commitment to Locally-Grown Produce

6B8A5349
Our commitment to purchasing local produce has grown to include more than 125 growers.

At Meijer, we strongly believe in supporting the local communities we serve, and this extends to the local farmers and growers in those areas. Buying locally-grown produce is a business practice that began when founder Hendrik Meijer opened the first Meijer store more than 80 years ago. As Meijer continues to expand across the Midwest, our commitment to purchasing local produce has also grown.

Meijer works with more than 125 local growers – up 25 percent during the past two years alone – within our six-state footprint. This commitment has made Meijer one of the largest purchasers of many fruits and vegetables in the Midwest, with an economic impact of nearly $100 million annually.

Kirchgessner Farm has provided fresh produce to Meijer stores with fresh cantaloupes for nearly 15 years.

Meijer is committed to purchasing from local growers big and small, which includes a longtime partnership with Kirchgessner Farm. The small family-owned farm has provided fresh produce to Meijer stores in Louisville, Ky. and southern Indiana with fresh cantaloupes for nearly 15 years. Bill Kirchgessner runs the second generation farm with several family members, including his siblings, wife and children, and appreciates the commitment Meijer has to buying local.

“Meijer has made a huge commitment to buying our produce,” Kirchgessner said. “I know how much I appreciate it when people shop at Meijer and buy our family farm melons because they say ‘locally grown.’ It makes us feel good to know our neighbors are supporting us and our farm.”
