Retailer Meijer Inc. says it expects to hire 10,000 workers in the Midwest for the fall and holiday shopping season.

The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based company is likely to add 1,500 workers in Illinois and 1,800 workers in Indiana.

“While most of these opportunities are part time and seasonal, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer,” said Michael Rotelle, senior vice president of human resources. “As we continue to grow, we are frequently looking to fill our on-going part-time and full-time needs.”

Meijer stores are open 24 hours and only close on Christmas Day.
