Construction is set to begin construction on a Meijer location headed for NW Detroit. The superstore will appear at Grand River and McNichols, the former site of old Redford High School. MLive reports
that the official groundbreaking will occur on May 15, adding that the project has an ETA of summer 2015. Will this Meijer mirror the entertaining (but often inept) construction process of its predecessor? Don't count on it. Sequels tend to disappoint.
UPDATE (5:05PM): Meijer clarifies that it will be "activating the construction guys" next month, though an official groundbreaking party hasn't been planned.
