Next Tuesday morning the Michigan Historical Commission will recognize Meijer with a Historical Market at the site of the original Thrifty Acres store at 28th and Kalamazoo. 

The original store, now completely remodeled, opened in 1962.   It marked the start of the new retail concept copied by so many others over the decades.  

52 years later, Meijer operates more than 200 stores!
