Meijer opens two new Ind. stores

Mass merchandise chain to open stores in Portage, Warsaw, Ind.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer will open two new stores in northern Indiana, the mass merchandise retailer said Wednesday.

Meijer said the stores, in Portage and Warsaw, Ind., would open on Thursday. The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based chain currently operates 32 stores around the state and more than 200 throughout the Midwest. The company said the stores would feature the chain's free prescription program, whereby it gives select drugs for free to customers with valid prescriptions, including generic versions of the cholesterol drug Lipitor (atorvastatin).

"Our team has worked very hard to get these supercenters ready, and we're excited to bring the Meijer experience to our neighbors in Portage and Warsaw and the surrounding communities," co-chairman Hank Meijer said. "We feel at home here, and we believe it's important to continue to focus on the communities where we're located."
