In the short-term, new Huntington branches will be built in more than 20 Meijer stores in Michigan, which will be constructed from May of 2012 through the end of the year and will include several newly constructed Meijer stores.

Steelcase has beeen tapped to design the new branches.

The first Huntington in-store branch will be opened in a newly-opened Meijer story in Bath on May 17.
