WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Meijer announced Tuesday that the incoming store in West Lafayette will generate 270 new jobs to the area.

Meijer made the announcement of new employment opportunities to the area, as the company prepares for its Grand opening, which is set for late spring to early summer.

The new Meijer, located at 2636 U.S. 52 in West Lafayette, will offer 270 positions, ranging from cashiers and customer service representatives, to cake decorators and pharmacy technicians, just to name a few. The corporation said starting pay will be based on experience level and specific skills.

Meijer is encouraging interested candidates from around the West Lafayette area to apply online. Representatives said interviewing will continue over the next few weeks and eligible candidates will be contacted for further interviews after they apply online.
