GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. — Philadelphia-based Dietz & Watson has made a deal with the Meijer grocery chain to carry the full variety of Dietz & Watson items in all of its stores. Dietz & Watson processes deli beef, pork, ham, turkey breast, chicken breast and cheeses, more than two dozen varieties of franks and sausages, a full line of deli thin sliced re-sealable packaged meats and cheeses, and a line of deli compliments.

Meijer operates 189 supercenters throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. As the inventor of the "one-stop shopping" concept, Meijer stores have evolved through the years to include expanded fresh produce and meat departments, according to a news release.

Rich Wright, vice-president, sales and marketing, Dietz & Watson, said, "Meijer and Dietz & Watson actually have a lot in common, so we’re a natural fit."

"We are very pleased to offer our customers Dietz & Watson products," added Tim Calderone, director of deli and bakery for Meijer. "We have reached our 75th anniversary this year because of a continued focus on innovation and customer service. Partnering with a premium brand such as Dietz & Watson continues this tradition as we add even more choices for our deli customers."
