O'FALLON, Ill. — A major big-box retailer new to the St. Louis market has proposed its second store in the region, even before the first opens.
Meijer, a Grand Rapids, Michigan-based retailer that operates supercenter stores carrying general merchandise and groceries, submitted plans to the city of O’Fallon, Illinois, for a new store, even as the retailer’s first St. Louis-area store is under construction in Glen Carbon.
The company is proposing to locate a 159,670-square-foot Meijer store at the corner of North Green Mount Road and Pierce Boulevard in O'Fallon, near Interstate 64, HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and existing big-box retail such as Menards. The Meijer supercenter would have a grocery store, a home department, a pharmacy and a store pickup area, according to renderings submitted to the city.
