According to numerous media reports, Meijer plans to close two of its Chicago area locations this summer due to low sales, according to company officials, who announced the closures yesterday.
One of those stores is located in Melrose Park at 950 Winston Plaza. The other location is in Berwyn.
The Melrose Park store, which opened in 2011, will close on June 17, according to a Chicago Tribune report, which references a Meijer news release.
“About 300 employees will be affected by the store closings, though some will find employment at other Meijer stores in the area. Employees were notified Tuesday.”
The Tribune reports that a company spokesman referenced both stores’ “underperforming” sales volume when explaining the closures, “but declined to provide any additional details on why the sites will close. Meijer, headquartered in Grand Rapids, Mich., is a privately held company.” VFP
