retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Grand Rapids Press reports that Meijer has closed down the first store that it operated as a supercenter, at the corner of Kalamazoo and 28th Street SE in Grand Rapids, replacing it with a new, $15 million, 156,000-square-foot store just next door that will open in October.

The old unit, which has been in operation for more than a half-century, will be torn down to make room for new parking spaces that will serve the new store.
