Dear Meijer Family,
Fred's and Meijer's influence on my life as an interior designer was known by many close to me. From the days you opened a store in 1995 in Lafayette, IN near where I was attending college at Purdue, to actually working on designing Meijer stores while employed at Integrated Architecture in GR, to my latest job designing pharmacies for the largest RX chain in the nation, Fred's innovative designs, awesome merchandising sense, and friendly demeanor made me want to become the retail designer that I am today! The Meijer stores inspired me since youth to become a retail designer and I thank Fred for this. If it wasn't for the Meijer's that my family visited while on vacation in Michigan in the early 1990's, the Meijer's opened in South Bend in 1994 or the Meijer opened near my college campus of Purdue in 1995, I may have been designing offices or hospitals.....but thanks to Fred, I gained my passionate design sense for retail! Thanks again Meijer family!
My prayers are with you and your family during this time of reflectance and sadness. God Bless you!
