GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer opened two new 190,000-sq.-ft. supercenters outside of Indianapolis on Tuesday, Meijer co-chairman Doug Meijer announced.
"Indianapolis is a very important growth area for us, and our new stores reinforce our commitment to serving the needs of families with great solutions to everyday needs,” Meijer said. “We’re excited to bring the Meijer difference to our new neighbors in Plainfield, Whitestown and their surrounding communities.”
In addition to the retailer’s traditional grocery and merchandise offerings, garden center and 24-hour gas station, the new Plainfield and Whitestown Meijer stores also feature full-service pharmacies. These pharmacies will provide free select prescriptions, as well as clinical services and immunizations designed to promote family health, Meijer stated. The Meijer free prescription program includes oral generic antibiotics with a special focus on prescriptions most often filled for children, as well as prenatal vitamins and medications for those with diabetes and high cholesterol.
Since its inception in 2006, the Meijer free prescription program has filled more than 19 million free prescriptions, saving Meijer customers more than $276 million, the grocer reported.
