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.
Meijer is focused on hiring and developing people who want to be the best. The entrepreneurial spirit that evolved Meijer into the first supercenter is present in all of us, and challenges us to raise the standard. That competitive edge pushes us to exceed the expectations of our customers, while building working relationships that can last a lifetime.
Currently ranked as the 15th largest privately held company in the United States, Meijer brings you an opportunity for great personal and professional growth. Training and development, hands on experience and the guidance of our leaders will position you for success, all while delivering value to our customers and keeping positive things happening.
