Meijer, Big Lots Make Moves at Eastwood

NILES, Ohio – Howland Township officials will consider variance requests Thursday evening related to the proposed Meijer supercenter on the site of the closed Super Kmart at the Eastwood Mall Complex.  

The Cafaro Co., Niles, which developed and owns the mall complex, has an agreement in place with Meijer Stores Ltd., based in Grand Rapids, Mich., for the property, said Joe Bell, director of corporate communications. 

Meijer plans to demolish the Super Kmart building and construct a 159,264-square-foot store with a 3,376-square-foot convenience store and fueling station across the lot, said Peter Ross, Howland zoning administrator. The majority of the mall complex is in Niles, but Howland Commons – where the Super Kmart building is located – is in Howland Township.
