Meijer Superstore Remodels


As part of Meijer’s ongoing plan to keep its stores fresh and up-to-date, SchenkelShultz [now dba Elevatus Architecture] was selected to provide A/E design services for remodeling Meijer superstores in Battle Creek, Coldwater, and Portage, Michigan. All renovations were completed while the stores remained open 24/7. Planning the design alongside the construction manager ensured that each store’s daily operation was only minimally disrupted.

Each superstore’s remodel included:

  • site improvements and the reconditioning of existing elements,
  • new façade treatments and design,
  • reconfiguring the store exterior and gas station amenities,
  • adding a pharmacy drive-up window,
  • new finishes throughout each store,
  • relocating and/or adding bottle return facilities, pharmacy and related departments, new team areas, and new electronics areas, and
  • extensively reconfiguring the food prep areas of the deli, seafood, meat, and bakery departments.

Design services also included a full store audit and reporting, in addition to an asset inventory process where we provided an inventory and assessment of all built-in, temporary, and permanent fixtures in each store.
