Life after Talal Chahine



Guglielmi is the director of public relations for all 185 Meijer stores, three of which are in the Ann Arbor area. While the Carpenter Road and Saline Road Meijers will stay the course as large, fairly indiscriminate emporiums of everything, with grocery departments specializing in utilitarian, mass-appeal brands, the Scio Township Meijer is undergoing a transformation. A large center section is swathed in plastic, and when the work is completed, it will be reborn as one of Meijer's "food-oriented stores," joining similarly targeted stores in Howell and Cascade Township (near Grand Rapids). Some departments-shoes and crafts, for starters-will be downsized or eliminated to make room for "more cheese, more wine, more bakery, a larger fresh area, a sushi bar," Guglielmi says. Beyond the sushi bar, he couldn't name any specific brands or products that will be added, nor was it certain yet how other departments would be affected.

Guglielmi says Meijer is putting these specialty food-oriented stores "where the foodies are." Foodies apparently gather at I-94 exits-the Jackson Meijer, at Exit 169, is just minutes from Plum Market at Exit 172 and the new Whole Foods at Exit 175.

Meijer, 5645 Jackson Rd., 222-0300. Daily 24 hours.
