Meijer is a family-owned company serving the needs of families at each of our stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
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 more than 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 brought the LPGA back to Michigan and more. Welcome to our Meijer Community!
Meijer in the Community
Even though the 2018 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give was awarded the “Best Fan Experience” by the LPGA Tour, tournament officials aren’t just taking it easy this year.
To build upon that momentum and provide an even greater fan experience, tournament officials will completely reroute the course for the 2019 tournament held June 11-16 at Blythefield Country Club.
Holes 1 and 18 will move near the main entrance with the tee box and fairway situated along the fan favorites of Grand Taste, and expanded Grand Taste Garden and Discovery Land.
“This enhancement gives everyone – spectators, volunteers, TV viewers and players – a chance to get closer to the excitement and allows us to better showcase how this week is so much more than just golf,” said Cathy Cooper, Executive Director of the Meijer LPGA Classic. “We are focused on making this a fantastic event for the entire community and for families while taking care of our hungry neighbors.”

Our Partners at Work
To fully embrace the company you work for, Charlie Mollien believes you should jump right in and get your feet wet.
In his case, he helped pass out food during the Grand Taste at the Meijer LPGA Classic. Mollien was volunteering at one of the events during the annual Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give.
“As a leader, it’s important to lead by example,” said Mollien, a Director on the Pharmacy Team at the Meijer Corporate office. “I feel privileged to work for a company that supports me by giving me an opportunity to be part of it. This event is important to Meijer, a ton of fun and is a great way to raise money for Simply Give.”
Simply Give is the retailer’s signature hunger relief program. Since it’s inception in 2008, nearly $46 million has been generated to help stock the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest.
The previous five tournaments contributed more than $4.2 million to that total.
“Companies like Meijer that do so much for their communities are an important part of our communities,” he said. “Not all companies give back as much as Meijer does.”
Mollien has volunteered for the past two tournaments and is looking forward to this year’s held June 11-16 at Blythefield Country Club.
