In the last couple of years, a lot of stores disappeared from our local towns and many people lost their jobs while removing them.
Walmarts, Dollar Generals, and other big retailers we know about have always had the major share in the market of retailing and grocery stores, but we shouldn't forget about the local ones.
Let's find out more about this.
According to the Cleveland article, this former Kmart site has been empty for over 10 years and it's planned to be destroyed for other purposes.
Seeking to establish a new store at the former Kmart site, which shuttered 11 years ago, the Michigan-based retail giant has presented its construction proposals to Medina's Planning Commission. This would mark the establishment of Meijer's eighth major outlet in the Greater Cleveland area as written in the article.
According to Medina's Director of Community Development, Meijer has proposed the construction of a 160,000-square-foot store, slightly larger than the existing structure. Dutton revealed that Meijer submitted the plans on Thursday, following approximately six months of discussions with the city.
The Medina Planning Commission is set to review these plans in their meeting on June 8.
