Grand Rapids, Mich. — Meijer has opened its first Fairfax Market outside of its home state of Michigan. Located in Cleveland, the new Fairfax Market is the retailer’s fifth neighborhood market. The store is part of a broader revitalization project designed to bolster economic activity, add jobs and bring nutritious, affordable food to the Cleveland Innovation District.
“Fairfax Market represents another opportunity to serve our customers in a community that offers so much potential for growth. We’ve spent the last year connecting with local vendors and asking neighbors what they’d like to see in the market,” says Alan Jordan, store director of Fairfax Market. “As a result, we’ve worked to curate requested products and develop programs that will benefit our neighbors, such as multiple delivery options and on-site grocery pickup.”
Adds Rick Keyes, Meijer’s president & CEO: “Meijer is committed to investing in the communities where our customers and team members live and work, and that same philosophy applies to our neighborhood stores like Fairfax Market. We value the Northeast Ohio community and are excited to continue growing our presence here with our first grocery store in the City of Cleveland.”
The 40,000-square-foot store offers a wide range of products, including fresh meat and deli items, fresh produce, a bakery, and Meijer and national brand items. It also carries more than 2,000 local products from 150 local vendors, including Cleveland Cold Brew Coffee, Micah’s Supreme Sauce, PUR Spices, Akron Honey, Lemon Waves and beauty care products from Catlin Naturals, a local, black, woman-owned business.
Other market highlights include a 104-foot international section. A 54-seat café space serves coffee, sandwiches, salads and other items from Saucy Coffee and sushi from Hissho Sushi.
Located at 2190 E. 105th St., Fairfax Market offers onsite grocery pickup and delivery through Shipt, Instacart and DoorDash.
Meijer opened its first store in Ohio in 1981 and has invested heavily in the state ever since. Upon the opening of Fairfax Market on Jan. 16, Meijer now has 53 stores statewide and distribution/manufacturing facilities in Tipp City and has plans for accelerated growth in Northeast Ohio.
