Capital City Market brings a mix of store-brand items, national brands and 3,000 local offerings to downtown Lansing, Mich.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Supercenter pioneer Meijer opened its third small-format store today, in a new mixed-use development near downtown Lansing, Mich.

The 37,000-square-foot Capital City Market anchors the 150,000-square foot BLOCK600 development that includes 40 residential apartments and a 122-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel.

“We’ve been looking forward to opening our doors after working diligently for months to ensure we have the best assortment of products on our shelves,” said Mitch Cook, the store’s manager.

Capital City Market features a mix of store brand merchandise, national brands and some 3,000 local offerings from the likes of Mr. Leslie’s Cheesecake, Round Lake Produce and Reputation Beverage. The store boasts a coffee and espresso bar; an extensive beer, wine and liquor counter and an expansive international food aisle.

“At Meijer, we’re committed to being a good neighbor by supporting the communities we serve,” Rick Keyes, Meijer’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “We are excited to be a part of the BLOCK600 development and share our newest fresh market with a community that continues to grow.”

Meijer opened its second urban store earlier this year, in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak, Mich. That store, called Woodward Corner Market, also anchors a mixed-use development in the town, which is home to the Detroit Zoo and was the setting of the ABC sitcom “Home Improvement.”
