Meijer Creates 300 Jobs

DANVILLE -- Meijer is celebrating it's grand opening in Danville and the creation of three hundred jobs.

Area officials were present for the ribbon cutting ceremony as shoppers already filled the store.

The one-hundred and ninety thousand square foot store was filled with employees as three hundred jobs were created with the opening of the retail center.

Shoppers say they are happy to have another option in the area and the increased competition.

As part of the ceremony, Meijer donated twenty-five thousand dollars to the St. James Food Pantry, a group that feeds four-hundred area families a month.

Meijer officials say they feel at home in this area and don't just plan to stay but grow throughout the midwest.
