On Tuesday, we proudly unveiled the first Meijer stores in Wisconsin to local shoppers in Grafton and Kenosha. Since announcing our intention more than two years ago, we’ve done our best to understand and truly become a part of those communities. This includes many partnerships we’ve made along the way.
In Kenosha, we’ve been working with the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha. Through a $25,000 donation, we’ll be able to help the club revamp and reopen its “Kids in the Kitchen” program, which teaches youth members about healthy eating habits, as well as how to prepare and cook fresh meals and snacks for their families. In Grafton, the Village of Grafton received $25,000 to install five new informational kiosks and new pavilion as part of the community’s Riverwalk.
In addition to our philanthropic efforts and support of local food banks, Meijer is a proud sponsor of the Milwaukee Brewers and Wisconsin State Fair presented by U.S. Cellular.
As the first in the state to carry our unique offerings that include fresh, high-quality produce and groceries, general merchandise and full-service pharmacies, we at Meijer are grateful for the enthusiastic welcome we’ve received as we’ve built these first stores.
In August, Meijer will open two additional stores in Wauwatosa and Oak Creek with plans for continued growth in Wisconsin in the coming years.
