The new Meijer store in Avon, the first in Lorain County for the Michigan-based retail chain, is scheduled to open next month.
An official grand opening is scheduled for stores in Avon, Mentor and Stow on May 14, with promotions and events starting May 19.
Prior to the opening of the 155,000-square foot store on Nagel Road, a Meijer Express gas station will open on April 18. A second Meijer store is in the planning stages on the site of the former Super Kmart in Lorain.
The retail chain opened its first Ohio store in the Columbus area in 1981, and now has 39 locations in the state.
