Meijer, Inc. is negotiating to open an anchor superstore in the Shoppes at Gateway Park Project that will be opening near the Michigan State Fair Grounds at 8 Mile and Woodward. This will be the first store in Detroit for Meijer's, and the first big-box major grocery store to open in the City since Farmer Jack closed almost two years ago.

General Electric Corporation, begun over one hundred and thirty years ago by Port Huron's own Thomas Alva Edison, will build a $100M technology, manufacturing, and software research center in Van Buren Township near Belleville. The facility will employ over 1,200 scientists and engineers working on next-generation manufacturing and technology products such as renewable energy and composites.
