JACKSON TWP. – Stark County’s first Meijer Supercenter likely will open next spring if the company follows its usual practices for store openings.

Crews began 10 days ago erecting walls for the main building, which will sit on a 14-acre track along Fulton Drive NW east of Everhard Road NW. A building for a service station also is under construction.

Early designs indicated a 160,000-square-foot building for the supercenter. The Michigan-based retailer generally includes a grocery, general merchandise department and pharmacy in its stores.

The Meijer project is part of a 62-acre tract called the Greens at Belden, which used to be the northern portion of Tam O’Shanter golf course. About 200 acres south of the development are being used by Stark Parks, while 40 acres are being developed by Jackson Township for athletic fields.

Crews are building the exterior walls for a Meijer Supercenter being constructed at the Greens of Belden along Fulton Road NW in Jackson Township. The property had been part of the former Tam O'Shanter golf course.

Meijer has more than 250 stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin, along with more than 200 gasoline convenience stores. In recent years, the company has been opening new stores in mid-May, although the coronavirus pandemic delayed 2020 store openings to July.

The company has been expanding in Northeast Ohio. Over the past three years, Meijer has opened supercenters in Stow, Mentor and Brimfield Township, and this past May in Boardman and Seven Hills.
