Meijer is set to invest more than $375 million in new stores and renovations this year.

Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes said today the investment will include seven new superstores and 22 remodel projects.

The new stores will be in Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin, while remodels will be completed throughout five states, including stores in several "key markets": Detroit, Chicago, Cincinnati and Louisville, Kentucky.

“These projects represent an investment in our customers, team members and the local communities that have supported us for so long,” Keyes said.

Included in the projects will be the first stores in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
