retail news in context, analysis with attitude

BizTimes.com reports that Meijer Inc. plans to build one of its supercenters in Franklin, Wisconsin, and also is “considering plans to build stores in Oak Creek, Grafton, Pewaukee and New Berlin” as part of a move into the Milwaukee market.

According to the story, Meijer may find Milwaukee enticing because Roundy’s has moved away from a discount image, and it sees a competitive opening.
