About Fred Meyer: Ninety years ago, a man named Fred G. Meyer opened the first Fred Meyer store with the idea of “one-stop shopping” Since then, the Fred Meyer brand has expanded into a Northwestern United States chain. The addition of this one-stop shopping center, which has an Eagle address, confirms the exciting growth occurring along this busy corridor edging both Eagle and Meridian.
