Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Meijer Inc. announced that it will open its new stores at the Drexel Town Square development in Oak Creek and at 11111 W. Burleigh St. in Wauwatosa on Aug. 4.
The stores are two of several that Meijer plans to open in southeastern Wisconsin as it expands into the state. In late June Meijer opened stores in Grafton and Kenosha.
The company plans to open stores in Waukesha and Sussex in 2016, and also plans to eventually open stores in West Bend, Greenfield, Sheboygan and the Green Bay area.
Each Meijer store is about 192,000 square feet in size and features general merchandise and full grocery departments. Meijer says it is making a $750 million investment in Wisconsin.
In 2014, Meijer established a distribution center in Pleasant Prairie, expanding a former Supervalu distribution center from 580,000 square feet to 800,000 square feet.
