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
On Sunday, the 5th annual Meijer LPGA Classic concluded with a victory by So Yeon Ryu (Republic of Korea) and a donation of $1.1 million to the Meijer Simply Give program.
“The Meijer LPGA Classic has made an incredible impact on our hungry neighbors. Thanks to the ongoing support from our community, we exceeded our $1 million goal for this year’s tournament,” Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said. “It was a meaningful end to a fun-filled week, which saw record-breaking attendance of more than 55,000 people.”
When asked how she handled the pressure during the final day of tournament play, Ryu said, “Incredibly, I was really calm today. Of course I prayed like a thousand times, but I was really calm. I was able to focus on my game instead of think about other players.”

Our Partners at Work
The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give is underway this week, welcoming 144 of the world’s best women golfers to Blythefield Country Club.
LPGA Professional Brittany Benvenuto took time away from the course to tour North Kent Connect with Meijer Executive Chairman Hank Meijer, and learn more about how its pantry benefits from the Meijer Simply Give program.
The program has generated more than $37 million since 2008 to stock the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest.
Benvenuto said she was impressed with the facility, and grateful to learn about the impact the Meijer LPGA Classic has made on the community. The past four tournaments have generated more than $3.1 million for the program, and has set a goal of raising another $1 million this year.
