Meijer grand opening set for Tuesday

July 30, 2016

WAUKESHA - After months of construction, Meijer will hold its grand opening Tuesday.

Meijer, a regional supercenter chain which specializes in groceries, electronics, home, style and pharmacy, will open its doors at 801 E. Sunset Drive with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring company leadership and local dignitaries.

The ceremony includes Meijer formally making a $25,000 donation to the city of Waukesha to help fund improvements at the Les Paul Performance Center, Cutler Park and Waukesha Public Library. The money will go toward helping build a concession area, restroom upgrades and improvements to the library’s community room.

Following the cutting of the ribbon, students from La Casa de Esperanza will go back-to-school shopping with gift cards provided by Meijer.

The new store creates more than 280 jobs within the Waukesha community and will provide customers with fresh produce, merchandise and a full-service pharmacy.
