The company is calling it a "neighborhood store."

Detroit's second Meijer superstore celebrates its grand opening today on Grand River Avenue. The new grocery store was packed as media and shoppers explored the new location built on the former site of Redford High School. "Artifacts" from the school are deposited around the store along a greenspace pathway and a plaque at the store's entrance commemorates the high school.

Meijer West, described as a "neighborhood store," is identical in size (190,000-square-feet) and price tag ($20 million) to the 8 Mile location and features a similar layout with fruit and vegetable aisles in the center and a bakery section west of the center. Some have speculated that Meijer may be shopping for property on the east side for a third location.
