Austintown gives final approval for Meijer grocery store

Posted: Updated:

Austintown residents will have a new grocery store, but it won't be open for a few more years.

Zoning officials have given final approval for a Meijer grocery to be located on the site of the former Austintown Middle School on Mahoning Avenue.

The Austintown Board of Education agreed back in February to sell the property to the company that operates the grocery store chain for $2.6 million.

Zoning inspector Darrin Crivelli tells 21 News demolition is expected to begin in early 2017, with the store tentatively slated to open in 2021.

Meijer, based in Michigan, operates more than 200 stores in six states, selling groceries, electronics, pharmacy and other home needs.

The land is across the street from an Aldi's grocery store and a Walmart.
