Meijer Supercenters coming to Valley by 2021

Posted: Updated:
STOW, Ohio -

A Meijer Supercenter is expected to put down roots in the Mahoning Valley by opening a store in Boardman by 2021.

Two more stores in Austintown and Niles are expected to follow.

On Tuesday, the Supercenter chain opened a record breaking three stores in one day in the Akron/Cleveland area.

So what do Meijer stores have to offer and what makes them stand out?

Just 50 minutes from Youngstown, Meijer has opened a Supercenter in Stow, offering more than 220,000 products and 600 varieties of produce.  

Meijer is also about one-stop shopping, and the company invented the Supercenter concept in 1962.

The store offers fresh produce, a fish market, butcher shop, a bakery that bakes bread four times a day and makes its own cakes.  

Meijer also offers a pet store, electronics shop, a home section with rugs and bedding and clothing for men, women and children.

"This store that we're in today is 155,000 square feet.  It's got everything from electronics to a garden center to a pharmacy," said Frank Guglielmi, Senior Director of Communications of Meijer.

"The best deal I found so far is the Sockeye Salmon $10.49 a pound and that's a great price.  That's better than Heinen's, better than Giant Eagle Market District, that's the best in the area," said customer Mark Campanalie of Stow.

Shoppers said they're impressed with wider aisle space. 

About 250 employees are hired at the store, so there's plenty of help and low prices, including ten ears of corn for just $1. 

Patricia Richards of Stow filled up her grocery cart and said she's impressed.

"Actually, everyone in the Stow community has been waiting for this store to open and this is a wonderful store. Fabulous, it's bigger than Walmart, a lot more product in here," said Richards. 

One thing unique to Meijer is what's called "Shop and Scan," just use your cell phone and bring in reusable bags and literally scan your purchases as you go by placing your phone directly over the bar code.  

The price scans in on the app and when you're finished hit "checkout," then go to a special checkout station where you scan your phone and cash out, no waiting in line. 

Meijer has about 246 stores nationwide, and according to 2015 revenue, is the 26th largest retailer in the country.
