Construction started last year on the store at the former Redford High School site on the city's west side.
The supercenter is the latest of 11 new stores that Meijer is opening throughout the Midwest this year. The opening comes about two years after Meijer opened its first Detroit store at 8 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue in the Gateway Marketplace.
