Crews have been working steadily on all aspects of the new store and service station.
The outside of the building has been painted, glass panels installed at the entrances, the service station appears to being on target to open before the main store will be. One of the more noticeable items that has been installed are the new Meijer signs at the entrance on M-32 and one on Bagley.
It would be no surprise to see both the service station and the main store open earlier than anticipated which is slated for April of 2015.
There is a great deal of anticipation for this new retail destination to finally be open. Alpena area residents and even those in the outer areas are looking forward to having another choice for shopping.
