GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Midwest retailer Meijer Inc. says it's planning to hire 12,000 new employees as it prepares for the holiday season as well as to support continued growth.

The Grand Rapids-based company has stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. It announced the planned hiring Tuesday.

Meijer stores are open 24 hours and are closed on Christmas Day. Staffing needs vary from store to store, but the company says all Meijer stores have jobs available.

Job candidates are asked to complete an online application. Candidates may also complete the application at employment kiosks located in Meijer stores.
