New Meijer on hold due to Detroit bankruptcy

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The success of Meijer's first superstore in Detroit on the corner of Eight Mile Road and Woodward Avenue has triggered the retail and grocery giant to make plans for a new store on the city's northwest side.

The plans are for the store to go on the site of the old Redford High School, but there are private use restrictions on the land which Meijer claims are not consistent with the zoning of the area which was redone in 2011.  The only way to change the restrictions would be to sue the city, but no suits are allowed against the city while bankruptcy proceedings continue.

Meijer plans to ask U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes to lift the automatic stay on lawsuits against the city so they can move forward with the building of the new store.
