Plans for a Meijer super store offering both groceries and department store merchandise will go to the Greenfield Plan Commission for a conceptual project review Tuesday, Aug. 12.
The store plus an attached garden center and a separate gas/concenience building would be on the site of the former Mount Carmel nursing home, 5700 W. Layton Ave.
The store would be about 190,000 square feet with a 20,000-square-foot garden center plus the gas station/convience building.
Earlier this year, the Meijer CEO Hank Meijer said the retailer was considering other sites in Greenfield. But the 25-acre site, right off Interstate 894/US 45 is particularly prime and big enough for the store, he said.
Mayor Michael Neitzke said if the store is approved, it would fit into Greenfield's efforts to make Layton Avenue its main street.
