GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 14, 2020 – Meijer announced today it is adjusting store hours to allow more time for customers to get their shopping essentials and extending the times its stores dedicate to senior citizens, customers with chronic health conditions, essential service workers and its team members.

New store hours are as follows:

  • Meijer stores will close overnight at midnight local time, beginning Friday, May 15, and will open each morning at 6 a.m. local time.
  • Meijer Express convenience store locations will close overnight at 11 p.m. and open each morning at 6 a.m.; pay-at-the-pump fuel sales will remain available 24 hours a day.
