Big-box retailer Meijer will open its ninth Kentucky store at 7 a.m. Thursday, as its Richmond Centre location along Interstate-75 in Richmond begins operation.
The store, which will be Meijer's southernmost location, is 156,000 square feet. That's about two-thirds the size of a typical Meijer, as the company is utilizing a newer, smaller format, according to a news release.
Meijer operates 194 stores throughout Michigan, its home base, and Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. There are two Meijer locations in Lexington.
