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
When a team of engineering students from the University of Michigan qualified to compete at an exclusive international competition at Elon Musk’s SpaceX campus in Hawthorne, Calif., Meijer offered its fleet to help transport their futuristic transportation pod across the country.
The Meijer Fleet Team recently completed the 2,300-mile trek in a specially-wrapped refrigerated Meijer truck, delivering U of M’s 400-pound “Hyperloop Pod” to compete against 18 university teams.
“As a Michigan-based retailer dedicated to innovation and community, we’re thrilled to help some of our home state’s brightest students,” said Dave Hoover, Meijer Director of Outbound Logistics. “They’ve worked incredibly hard and have committed themselves to a project that could impact the future of transit and cargo transport.”
The competition challenges engineering students to design and build the best transport pod, which could one day be used in super high speed transit systems.

Our Partners at Work
Historically, the Meijer Simply Give program has made a tremendous impact on the food pantries it supports across the Midwest.
The spring campaign set a record with more than $3.5 million in donations. And three Northern Michigan Meijer stores contributed more than $255K alone.
At the Petoskey Meijer, $106,960 was generated during the spring campaign for Manna Food Project. Representatives said the money will be earmarked to fill backpacks of school-aged children with food to eat over the weekend once school is back in session.
The Traverse City and Acme Township Meijer stores teamed up to support the Northwest Food Coalition. Together, they raised $148,940 to help feed hungry families.
According to the food pantry representatives, one in five children in Northern Michigan is food insecure.
