Supporting Local Business

given our roots, we are eager to help other small, local businesses grow.

What started as a way for Hendrick Meijer to feed his family and others in Greenville, Mich. during the Great Depression has grown to be one of the largest superstores in the country. We are proud of our heritage as a small family business from the Midwest and remain family-owned to this day.

Whether it’s by contracting with local crafts people to build and maintain our stores or supporting local farmers and carrying locally made products on our shelves, we relish the opportunity to use our platform to spread economic development in our stores’ communities. We know that our customers value locally sourced products from the fish and produce they eat to the poinsettias they use to adorn their homes each holiday season. For more details on our locally grown products, visit our local products sustainability page.

"As a family-owned Midwestern company, we know that communities are built around local businesses." - Rick Keyes, Meijer President & CEO

Our neighborhood market stores – Bridge Street Market in Grand Rapids, Mich., Woodward Corner Market in Royal Oak, Mich. and Capital City Market in Lansing, Mich. – especially focus on discovering and highlighting local brands and carrying products with strong roots in their cities.

If you are a local business interested in partnering with us to provide your services or products, feel free to reach out with your information for consideration through our prospective vendor page.
