It takes guts to start a business during the Great Depression. And it takes vision to keep it going. Our founder, Hendrik Meijer, opened Thrifty Acres in 1934. Almost thirty years later, his son, Fred, pioneered the world’s first ever supercenter – setting the table for who we are today: a multi-billion-dollar household name in retail.
Of course, we’re not done. Not by a long shot. We recently launched the nation’s largest grocery home-delivery service – reinventing the business of grocery shopping ”¦ again.
A lot has changed over the years, except for one thing; we’re still family owned. And that sense of family runs deep in everything we do. It’s the difference between selling a product and serving a community, and it’s the reason we’ve given back over $30 million to local food pantries in the last ten years.
So, if you appreciate the pioneering spirit of Meijer, we’d like to connect with you. Because the bigger our family, the better.
