KENT COUNTY, Mich.—A new bank is moving into Meijer stores across the area.
Huntington Bank is partnering with the retailer to open 43 branches within Meijer stores, a dozen of which are in the greater Grand Rapids area. The bank says the deal will create 250 jobs within the state and make Huntington the third largest bank branch network in the state. Huntington says the partnership will bring its company workforce up to 2,300 people.
The announcement comes months after Chase began notifying customers it is closing its Meijer store branches. A spokesman for Meijer told WZZM 13 “circumstances have changed and we mutually agreed to end the relationship.”
Huntington’s new Meijer branch locations will include Grand Haven, Grand Rapids, Grandville, Greenville, Ionia, Jenison, Lowell, Muskegon, Portage, and Wyoming.
