WEST BEND — Meijer Inc. purchased about 30 acres of property in West Bend for $6.1 million on Monday, according to records from the Washington County Real Property Lister Office.

The purchase covers the property that the grocery and department store chain plans to build on in West Bend.

Additionally, Meijer purchased an outlet from Glacier Hills Credit Union for $150,000, according to the West Bend Assessor’s Office.

The approximately 190,000-square-foot store will be located at 2190 and 2196 S. Main St., near the intersection of South Main Street and Parkway Drive. The West Bend Plan Commission approved the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based company’s building plans earlier this year.

City Council members also approved a business development agreement with Meijer in August to perform infrastructure improvements, including adding stoplights at the intersection of South Main and Humar streets. The store will include a drive-thru pharmacy, outdoor garden center, grocery and general merchandise departments, according to the plans Meijer brought to the city.
