Beginning Friday, May 15, 2020, Meijer will lengthen store hours to allow more time for essential shopping. The store will extend dedicated times for seniors, customers with chronic health conditions, frontline workers and team members.
Please make note of the following changes:
- Stores will close overnight at midnight and will open each morning at 6 a.m. (beginning May 15)
- 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.
- NEW dedicated shopping times for senior citizens and customers with chronic health conditions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 a.m. Pharmacies will continue opening at 7 a.m. on those days.
- NEW dedicated shopping times for essential service workers and Meijer team members on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-8 a.m. Pharmacies will continue opening at 7 a.m. on those days.
Essential service workers include all medical workers, first responders and law enforcement. Senior citizens are considered age 60 and older. Meijer is asking its customers and the public to please respect the times for these important groups.
Previously, Meijer stores were known for being open 24 hours a day. On March 19, 2020, Meijer decided to shorten store hours from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. to allow time for cleaning and restocking. The May 15 change will add 4 hours of shopping time each day. Dedicated shopping times previously ran from 7-8 a.m.; this change allows an additional hour for important groups to shop.
