Did U.S. Bank inadvertently announce the Round Lake Beach Meijer Opening Date?
Based on a mailing from U.S. Bank the new Round Lake Beach Mejier store will probably have a “soft” opening on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, ahead of their Grand Opening on Thursday, June 23rd.
On Monday, April 21st, residents began receiving mailers announcing that U.S. Bank, located next to Panera Bread at 254 E Rollins Road, would be moving their operations on June 20th to the inside of the new Round Lake Beach Meijer store and reopen the following morning, June 21st, at 9:00 AM.
As previously posted on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/RoundLakeBeachMeijer I had projected a weekend grand opening on June 18th but was off by a couple of days. I also project that the new Flossmoor Meijer store will open on the same day, June 23rd.
For those who have followed along on the Facebook page, you have been kept up-to-date with numerous posts and videos that showed the demolition of the old vacant Walmart store as well as most of the plaza.
Meijer Corporate has not made an official announcement regarding their grand opening/ribbon-cutting ceremony. They have continued to simply say that they generally announce their ribbon-cutting about 6-weeks prior to the date and that gas stations located on the premises open a few weeks prior. That would indicate that the new Meijer gas station on Rollins Road should be opening sometime in mid-May.
Mejier started accepting applications about a month ago including cake decorators, meat cutters, security guards, etc. If you visit the Facebook page mentioned above, there is a Sign Up tab included in the pages header photo that will take you directly to their sign up procedure page(s).
