Retail in Focus: Meijer
Indianapolis, IN (June 2016) – It was 1934- amidst the Great Depression when the first Meijer grocery store opened its doors in Greenville, Michigan. Over time, the business continued to grow including opening the first “Thrifty Acres” general merchandise and food store format in 1962. Locations were added throughout the decades and the company now has locations in six states and over 200 stores. Fast-forward to 2016- Meijer is now one of the largest retailers found in the Midwest and is constantly striving to live by its values which include exceptional customer appreciation.
GreenLight Collectibles began its relationship with Meijer in November of 2006 where at the time, only one product line was offered- The 1:64 Muscle Car Garage series. Today, GreenLight celebrates the fact that there are now thirteen different product lines being offered at Meijer locations- soon to be 15.
Because of this continuing relationship, GreenLight is pleased to announce that there will be a promotion running from 6/14/16 to 7/24/16 where customers can find 1:64 Black Bandits and 1:64 Anniversary Collections for just $3.99 at your closest Meijer location.
