Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Meijer Inc. wants to build a new store in Delavan.
The big box retailer, which operates 230 stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin, would build the store on a development site east of I-43, located at the southwest corner of North Shore Drive and Highway 50, according to a city agenda.
Meijer stores include full grocery and general merchandise departments. The new store would feature a drive-in pharmacy and gas station. A public hearing to discuss the plans could be held next month during the city's Plan Commission meeting, according to the agenda.
Frank Guglielmi, senior director of communications at Meijer, confirmed the company is considering a Delavan location and has a contract to purchase the development site, but is in the early stages of the deal.
"There is still a lot to do and we do not have a proposed opening date yet," he said in an email.
The Delavan location would be Meijer's 10th store in southeastern Wisconsin and 12th store in the state since it opened its first Wisconsin stores
in 2015. Its newest store, which is currently under construction, is slated to open next year at the Memorial Mall Shopping Center in Sheboygan
