GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Meijer says it has no plans to close any stores, but it will suspend service at certain areas, including meat, fish and deli.
The move will allow workers to prepare those items to be sold in self-serve refrigerated cases, the West Michigan-based company said.
“Our teams are working hard to ensure customers have the products they need,” Meijer tweeted.
