Meijer Cassopolis Street site plan

Meijer plans to build a new store on Cassopolis Street in Elkhart.

ELKHART — Local residents will have additional shopping and job opportunities by 2023, as a new Meijer store is scheduled to open on Cassopolis Street.

In a rezoning request to the Elkhart City Council, the company said the new store would add 300 jobs, once the project was completed, 70 percent of which will be full-time. The store will be located between Cassopolis and Johnson streets, south of Arlington Road.

And life goes on! More jobs, more tax base , probably more offers from developers , for more retail. Out lots would be very valuable! Can't wait!
