Fred Meyer History

Fred G. Meyer started out selling cherries from a stand in Brooklyn, NY.  He eventually expanded to selling cleaning supplies and cereal.

Meyer opened his first permanent location in Portland, OR in 1931.  In 1951, he built a large warehouse in Portland that was torn down less than 5 years later to build the Banfield Expressway.  Warehouse operations were moved to Swan Island.

In the 1960s, the company acquired Marketime Drugs and The Roundup Company.  Marketime expanded their territory to Seattle, WA.  The company was operating in 4 states by 1968.

Fred Meyer died in 1978 at the age of 92.  In 1982, the company was purchased by private equity firm KKR.

The company continued to expand and acquired other companies in the 80s and 90s.

In 1999, Fred Meyer merged with the Kroger Corporation.

There are currently over 130 Fred Meyer stores in the US.  The Fred Meyer corporate office is still located in Portland, Oregon.

I feel you need to know at corporate what you have as a store director. I am a older woman who has worked as a supervisor for Campbell’s. I chose to leave the production life to be with customers. I miss them but Jay Jones is not a a director to serve your store. He belittle his employees. Once I walked past his office and he asked why I was so defensive when he stopped me. I told him that he never had a kind thing to say. He said if you all get my asate scores up I will then appreciate you. I am sorry but I went through leadership training as a supervisor with Campbell’s and you don’t be little your employees to make them care. Walmart is coming and his attitude toward his employees is not going to bring in customers. I am already ready to spread the word about this man. You need to fix. I am sure you have had these complaints so I am not a uneducated woman. I have moved on to a production supervisor position but miss my customers.I have close ppl working there. Can’t see this go on. Please fix this. I am ready to picket and use my right to free speach

My best friend and her fiancé who shop often at your store in Brookings, , Oregon were shopping yesterday and mistakenly, Enid Williamson-Yates left her cell phone in the cart which she returned inside the store. When she realized she left her phone went back to store, checked with customer service and no one had turned it in. This phone not only was in an $97.00 otter box purchased at your store but a samsung galaxy3 cell phone through us celluar which is due for an upgrade next month was purchased at around $700.00+. Yes to a thief a wonderful gift but to Enid and her family a horrible experience with all family pictures, personal info, credit card #, ss# and so on. My question is can your store look on security footage?

I purchased a Skullcandy headphones set for $50. At the time of the purchase I was not told there’s a 30 day return policy electronics nor is it stated on your receipt. The headphones stop working properly in the first three days. I kept the receipt assuming that I can make a return at any time, due to the fact I was not told nor did I see a statement about the return policy. Good earbuds that I purchased are still in perfect condition sense I used him maybe three times in those three days them. I spoke to the customer service representative at the counter she stated about the policy and that I should contact Skullcandy this is my second pair of Skullcandy earbuds from Fred Meyer’s that don’t seem to function fully. I’m disappointed I will no longer be purchasing electronics or anything from Fred Meyer for a while. One customer is not gonna ruin your reputation for if you want return customers, policies as such should be in print on receipts

Lynn Gust, President

My daughter started her new job at Fred Meyer’s in Bend just a few days ago. She saw some things that made me decide to NEVER shop there again. Two cases of chicken strips left on a table overnight at room temperature, then used, not disposed of, (should have been in the freezer,) cakes that were supposed to be refrigerated at -10 F (left unrefrigerated overnight,), also not disposed of, a load of perishables left unrefrigerated for her entire shift, which may have been deli. These are food safety issues that are downright scary. The other issues were the treatment she was subjected to by the Vice President of Store Operations. She was not trained properly, (someone told her that it was because she works weekends.) She did watch videos about food safety, how to lift to avoid an injury, etc., but as far as training, she was just put on the schedule with little to no training. She was shown how to price items, and how to box up cookies, and french and garlic bread. She had a customer yesterday that wanted Italian bread in a long loaf, unsliced. The lady was abusive, but my daughter kept her cool, and tried to accommodate the woman, who refused sliced Italian bread, and also a round loaf of Italian bread. My daughter was stumped, not knowing what to do, and I think the customer herself, didn’t know what she wanted, because she kept saying, “No , the recipe I have calls for a long loaf of ITALIAN bread, unsliced!!!!” My daughter spent 15 minutes trying to find a loaf of Italian bread, and finally grabbed a long loaf of unidentified bread destined for the following day, that looked like it could be what the woman wanted, gave her that. She had another customer that wanted garlic bread. She said what she’d put out had disappeared very quickly, so she asked another employee, who told her where to get some in a certain area. The male customer became irate, told the other employee “she took bread from the pull-dated rack!” The other employee explained that all the garlic bread was dated for Aug 8th, (that same day), and it was edible, and also all they had. Another customer came in to pick up 27 cupcakes she’d ordered, wanted my daughter to tell her which of the cupcakes were pink inside, and which ones were blue inside (for a baby shower). My daughter had no way of knowing that, since the package was filled and boxed up prior to her shift. The woman also wanted her to open the box, remove 2 of the cupcakes, and put them in a separate box. My daughter, being alone, didn’t know how to tell which ones had pink or blue filling so she pulled the paper down on a cupcake, could see blue showing through the bottom half of the cupcake, and showed the lady. She also discovered that 4 of the cupcakes had a blue or pink ribbon on the bottom side of the cupcake, which identified them as either boy or girl cupcakes. The remaining 23 cupcakes were unmarked. The lady was a bit perturbed that the cupcake cup had been temporarily removed, but my daughter didn’t know how else to tell what the filling was. All the cupcakes were decorated in both pink and blue. During the 15 minutes while my daughter was frantically searching for a loaf of “Italian” bread, there was no other person working in the bakery, just herself, who had been left alone while the other employee was taking her lunch. She had a customer wanting a certain pastry, and had no idea what to charge for it. She found someone to ask, and got an answer, but in the meantime, the woman was doing a lot of eye rolling, and was very put out. I worked for Safeway in California, and rotated through every department in the store, finally becoming Assistant Manager, after 8 years. I still remember that training I received while on the job, and also in checker school, Produce Dept training, Inventory Control training, Bakery Dept training, Floral Dept training, and Wine and Liquor Dept training, where I became manager of each of those departments after hard work on my part. The difference between these two companies is unbelievable. The “man” in charge of store operations that was extremely rude to my daughter is a big boss? No wonder you have employees leaving frozen deli food out. When a store has problems like this, I blame the boss. One of the most important things in retail is to inspire loyalty in the employees, make them feel like they matter, and that you’re all working toward the same goal; which is increased sales and customer satisfaction. If you have a store full of employees that are routinely yelled at, told “you are a pain in my ass,” or “What are YOU DOING? Aren’t you going to get some bread out there? ” you are going to have a high turnover of employees. First, what does it mean to a brand new employee what you ask them “Aren’t you going to get some bread out there? What if the employee doesn’t know where “out there” is? She was not instructed on stocking the front of the store. She was so intimidated; she didn’t even know what to say. With a high turnover, you’ll have new employees poorly trained, if at all, trying to do a job that they aren’t familiar with. My daughter intended on working there for at least 4 years, while going to college part-time, but after seeing the way things are run there, she decided to give her notice. The same man was in her department today, chewing out my daughter’s immediate manager, pointing at my daughter, and talking about her loudly, (in front of her, and also customers, I might add,) the bakery manager told the man, company executive Rick Heffner, that my daughter was new, and that she had already given her 2 week notice. He said “Oh, okay,” and seemed happy about it. My daughter never had a chance. She was not trained on anything but the very limited basics in safety, was not told about the bread in the front of the store, (that Rick with the red face was furious about), couldn’t identify loaves that looked the same, but had no labels on them. By the way, here is what it says about Italian vs. French bread:http://www.differencebetween.net/object/comparisons-of-food-items/difference-between-italian-and-french-bread/. You have to remember the customer that refused a round loaf, wanted a long loaf with rounded ends…Sounds like French bread to me! She was really so rude that I wondered if it was a blind checker test, to see how my daughter coped with an extremely rude customer. (She did GOOD!) That’s what my daughter had just finished dealing with at 5:30 pm yesterday. I hope Rick Heffner reads this, I really hope his Board of Directors, and Kroger reads this too, because you don’t yell at a brand new employee, scaring and humiliating them for failing to do something they were not told to do. Your new employees are not mind readers, and can’t anticipate what their job entails, without better direction. My suggestion to Kroger is to wipe the slate clean, and get a new Retail Operations Vice President, before you get sued for poisoning someone with deli food that hasn’t been frozen or even refrigerated. No employee is going to keep things like that to himself when he/she is treated so rudely. When things like this happen in a store, I tend to blame the top dog…and in this case, I believe he deserves the blame, for all the reasons stated above. He is a top executive of Fred Meyers. He of all people should make sure his employees are trained, so when they are working alone, they know what they are doing. I sure wouldn’t have put an employee by herself after two days of boxing cookies, and bagging french bread and garlic bread. That is the total extent of my daughter’s experience in the Bend store.

Update: My daughter was scheduled to work 12-9, was called about 10am, and was asked to work 1-10pm. She said she would, and the lady that called her in for grocery did comment that she knew my daughter wasn’t trained in grocery, but it’s not hard. She arrived early to find out who her supervisor was, for some direction, and his name was Matt. He was short, abrupt, told her “you’re taking a ½ hour lunch, then complained to another employee that he had two people working grocery that had no experience. Why did Fred Meyer call her in to work grocery, knowing she had absolutely no experience, and would be working under a man that was very irate about it. My daughter went to lunch for a half hour and clocked back in, where Matt again was short with her, and she decided she wasn’t working another minute. She clocked out and came home. My maternal aunt worked for Fred Meyer when he was still alive, managing the Apparel Dept. for many years. She left and went into real estate when Fred Meyer started changing.

I have read many online complaints about your company in the last two days, and what is obvious to me is that you have management that is sub-par. I am not speaking about my daughter’s bakery manager, but the upper management. It is also obvious that you don’t care what the customers think, or you would want your employees to be well trained, so your customers aren’t dissatisfied. I wonder how many people were served chicken strips that should have been thrown away. Two cases of them! I wonder how many people can attribute their food poisoning or stomach flu to what they ate at Fred Meyer in the last two days. My daughter also saw a load of perishables sitting on the floor, unrefrigerated, and no one bothered to break down the load, just left it where it was. I hope the Deschutes County Health Dept gets wind of these practices.

My concern is that while shopping for wedding rings, I had found one on clearance that I fell in love with. It was quite expensive but 60% off was a deal. While looking at a booklet on rings that night , I saw the same ring for cheaper than what the price was before the 60%off. When I went in and asked about that, I was told that the cheaper price was a sale. Well no, because the prices in the book were that price and all the rings. So no sale, that was the price. Anyway, my question is, the ring should be 60% off the price in book. Correct??? If not, this is a huge bait and switch. Faithful customer which I hope to continue if the price is right.

Looks like we have a number of Freddy’s complaints. Mine is about customer service or lack of it. I’m afraid the clerks are not getting the proper training in how to speak in a respectful way to their customers. I’m seeing it more and more often. Todays clerk was insolent. As a former customer service manager, I think it should be brought to Fred Meyer’s attention. It will certainly keep me from shopping there if it continues.

While driving around to various Fred Meyers in Vancouver the other day I noticed that many of the Fred Meyer signs were covered up by trees growing in front of them. Can these trees be trimmed or cut down in such a way as to show the FM sign? You guys pay a lot of money for the signs and the only time I can see them to know when to turn is in the winter. Thank you for your time. Craig Klucas

I was shopping in your Oregon City store last night, which is my usual Fred Meyer location. There was a sale on the largest size Oscar Meyer beef bologna and the rack was empty, so when I went through the checkout, I asked for a rain check. The cashier looked at the ad and said she couldn’t give me a rain check on sale merchandise not in the ad. While this may not seem like a big deal, it is to me. My only source of income is Social Security and I try very hard to stretch my money as much as I can. I am truly one of your one-stop-shoppers. I just don’t understand why a sale item has to be in the printed ad to qualify for a rain check. I would like a response to this matter.

How lovely it was to receive some extra coupons for the Grand reOpening of the Warrenton Oregon store. Only problem with that is it would help if they ACTUALLY ARRIVED when they would be able to be used! It doesn’t do any good to send out coupons that are dated for the week BEFORE the coupon gets here.
Thanks for nothing!

Hello, I’m trying to understand why females are allowed to be out in the dark at night gathering shopping carts by themselves. Many times the lot is almost empty as it’s open until 11:00 pm and I see these young girls out walking the parking lot gathering carts. If you go to any college campus, you are told to never walk alone, use the buddy system. Why wouldn’t Fred Meyer incorporate that into their rules as well? I worry about these girls and seems like the management should as well. We are at the Scappoose, OR Fred Meyer and I’m sure this practice happens at all of them. At Safeway they don’t allow this so it seems Fred Meyer shouldn’t either. We have alot of weirdos running around here and everywhere for that matter.

Purchased a wedding set about 20 years ago, also purchased the diamond plan. I took my ring in regularly to have cleaned and inspected, even had repaired a couple times, the prongs, also about 3 years ago finally had it sawtered together. Never got the plan signed, well first of all who carries that around in your purse?? So a year ago, one of my little diamonds fell out, so I took in to have replaced, which should of been free, due to having the diamond plan. Well i has told that it would be $300+, because i did not have proof that i took my ring in every 6 months. Very frusturated and feel that i shouldn’t have to pay to have it replaced. They should keep track in computer system every time that you come in. They were able to tell me when the last repair, inspection by jeweler was and funny thing is, that it was like a month before the diamond fell out and they didn’t fix the prong or mention it to me….. All i want it for my ring to be fixed and made right. I will not purchase any other jewelery from there and i have told several friends and family also.

Hello, my name is Perry Perkins, and I run an outreach program that teaches free basic classes on nutrition, shopping, and home cooking skills to at-risk youth who are coming out of the Oregon foster care system to live on their own for the first time.

I wanted to bring to your attention two EXCEPTIONAL Fred Meyer employees at your Wilsonville, Oregon store (home/kitchen department) – Scott and Shelly helped us purchase several hundred dollars worth of kitchenware yesterday, to outfit ten new class stations for our kids. After a less-than-great customer service experience from a local competitor, we came to Fred Meyer and were treated like VIPs.

Both Scott and Shelly went out of their way to help us find everything we needed, assisted in loading everything onto big pushcarts, then ordered those things that there weren’t enough of (we needed 10 of everything!), and helped us save money (always important for a non-profit) at the same time! They were friendly, helpful, and made us feel like their highest priority.

We will be coming back to this Fred Meyer for ALL of our future needs, both for the outreach program, and our person chef services.

I just can’t express how impressed we were.

Thank you again,

Chef Perry P. Perkins

Wow! after reading some of these other comments I’m almost afraid to say anything. But I’m that guy who just refuses to be treated like I never spend money st FRED MEYERS. My entire family shops at your store and has for a LONG time. I’m talking generations here. I’m talking LOTS of money. I’ve had the occasional employee that’s just having a bad day. This didn’t bother me. I’ve had bad products and mistakes made on price of purchases. They have always been dealt with satisfactory results. But the first time I attempted to use the pharmacy, I was treated terribly. Yes im disabled after 40 plus years of paying taxes. Yes im on Medicare and yes it is a bad experience in itself. But I honestly don’t feel that just because “pharmacists ” have total control over weather I get a prescription or not I will lay down and take this. I’ve served my country, I will always help other people in need, even when I shouldn’t, and if it is ever brought to my attention that I have treated anyone like I just was in your pharmacy Dept, I would get on man one hand and knees and beg that person for forgiveness. Although I don’t talk about or care to talk about how I came to be disabled, for my country, I do believe a full apology is in order. I must admit even if this is done to my satisfaction, I can’t promise I will ever shop at Fred Meyer again. Like I said when I receive good service, I comment to that person on the spot. I believe in rewarding as well. Anyway your newly lost valued customer hopes you all figure things out. But I doubt it.

I was told that if I went online to complete a “short” survey I would get 50 bonus point for fuel and a chance to win $100.00 gift card. I went online and the survey was anything but short. I was asked every question under the sun, not about Fred Meyer but products, services etc. I had to enter my cell phone number and now I am getting solicitation phone calls on my cell phone. FIVE today. I am very upset about this misleading information and having my cell phone given to advertisers the minute I finished the survey! I should be PAID $100.00 for taking my time to do that survey. My recommendation to everyone is Don’t do it.

Fred Meyer, located in Boise Idaho, on the corner of Franklin and Orchard. My name is Nik Nikolish, and I live a few blocks from this Fred Meyer. My wife and I loved to shop here, it is so close to our home and VERY convient. A little while back, I was shopping for fall fertilizers, when I noticed these two larger sized, easy set-up, car ports. They were basically a small, tent like, garage. They were normally $340.00 , but were on sale for 50% off. I was very interested, but there packaging was in terrible shape, they were both outside, in the lawn and garden center, and had seen there fair share of rain and wind. I looked around for an employeeto help me get the heavy and awkward box, out from the storage rack it was in. I couldn’t find an employee, but soon came across a gentleman that I assumed was in management. I asked him if he could help me with the box and once he saw what I was talking about, declined to help. He was in his dress clothes, so I didn’t really mind. I just figured I would do it myself. He did stand there and watch. Once I had it freed and laying on itside, I could see that the back side was completely rotted thru the cardboard. I asked him if I could open the package the rest of the way to inspect the canvas material for rott. He told me that I was more than welcome to open it once I bought it and took it home. I asked why I couldn’t check as to I didn’t want to buy it, get it all the way home, to find out the canvas is damaged and then have to package it back up and return it. He said, that was the only way I was going to see inside the box and that he didn’t have time to deal with my situation and walked off. I was stunned at being treated that way and especially by some body in management. I am thirty five years old and have a very extreme baby face, I’m guessing hetook me for a teenager or was just having a bad day. I have been back to this fred meyer a couple times, and each time I want to see somebody in management to notify them of my situation. I have never told on anyone before, and am having a difficult time writing this email. I was with my wife two nights ago at this Fred Meyer and I saw this gentleman once again, he was having an argument with an employee and chewing this kid out right infront of customers. I guess I reached this point, and want somebody to talk with this man. I do not wish to give his name, but after seeing him tare into that kid I am in firm belief he has had complaints filed against him in the past. Sorry for the long email, but I would hate for this store to loose more customers due to his actions. My wife and I would really like some help in this matter……..I’m still wanting that garage/carport, if one is still available.

Thanks for taking the time in reading my email and I really hope this issue can be taken care of.

Sincerely, Nik Nikolish

I have been discriminated against by the Fred Meyer Corporation on a few occasions for utilizing a service canine. I have brought this matter to their attention via phone, fax, email, and in person at a store level to the acting manager. These events have occurred over the past year and a half.

Yesterday evening, I received a call threatening criminal action against my person for contacting the Fred Meyer home office. Would this happen if I had my own attorney versus representing myself pro se? Could this possibly be abusive power? Are our protected rights being violated? The officer that contacted me intimidated me further by refusing to hear this. I hung up on him after requesting his supervisor to call me back. At this time I have yet to hear from the supervisor though I am in high hopes of them contacting my person today as I just left a message for them again. Please feel free to contact me about this matter as needed.

Our church group makes quilts and gives them to Lutheran World Relief and a local place where we can outfit people re-starting their lives. Unfortunately two of your colors are no longer available at all the stores I’ve been to in the Portland area. They are Fuscia and Kiwi. I think you have decided to discontinue these colors bur I would greatly appreciate knowing that this decision is ‘for sure’ and, if so, do you know where I could get them.
in the future, is there a way of knowing which colors you plan to discontinue?

I have two complaints: 1. When I purchased my matching mens wedding ring and ordered it in size 16, I was told it would take around 4 to 8 weeks at the longest to receive this mens ring when in fact it took more than 90 days. I was very patient and waited and finally received it. I did not get any deduction from the total amount owed for the trouble and time it took for me to receive this ring. 2. I went to Fred Meyers today (9/16/2013 at or around 4:12PM0. to shop at the Longview WA store on Ocean beach store (3184) and I went back to the electronics area were I meet and was asking questions about a blue ray 3D Samsung player and questions about the TV screens. Nick was there and another female Fred Meyer Employee. The female employee said are you talking to me and I said yes I was attempting to ask a question but if no one wants to answer a question I imagine I will just leave. She said she did not have to answer any questions because she was punched out and was not technically working any more, I informed them both that that was piss poor customer relations and I was not happy at all and that they were very rude!
They had time to talk to each other but not to answer any question. Is this the way Fred Meyers treats there customers now days, if so I will shop else were. Just thought you might want to know.

For me to enjoy this ham I have to buy it in Issaquah when I am over there which is a 11/2hr drive from where I live. When I asked at the Ellensburg deli about carrying it they said they were not allowed to order it?

The sandy or. Store is closest to me but I don’t want to shop there because while I am shopping my family or doctor cannot reach me on my cell phone!! I talked to AT&T and verizon and employees, they all said its because the store is in a hole?? The store can request a special tower system from AT&T.

I am filing a appeal and getting a Lawyer to Make Fred Meyers get the Videos to show what really happened ! I am a Victim of a Tort or Slander and someone is going to Be in Big Trouble when the truth comes out of this Mess! so Dont Trust Fred Meyers store to Be up front and Honest , they wont return My calls, I have 3 Audio Recordings of their statements they made with me to try and do the right thing Here ! I spend about 500 a month there i their store and they just let the Court system slam me ! there are employees there that seen this woman following me around for some time now and she got away with this last week! there is No Justice in our county any more for the small guy on Disability that cant afford to Hire a Good Lawyer ! if any one knows some one who would like to take my case I would like to hear from you! it could be worth a lot of money to them !

We miss Matt at the Brookings, OR store. There is a change in the air since Matt is gone. He use to be walking around talking to customers. I don’t see the new one doing that. We want Matt BACK please!!!!!!!

Maybe if Matt would have not been walking around visiting, and doing his job he would still be there. Sounds like a friend of the family, not a loyal shopper like me. I have noticed a remarkable change in the store, lately and what ever someone did appears to have been a positive change. Keep up the good work. This store is my favorite..

What is the reason Kroger/Fred Meyer in Brookings,ore is no longer carrying Iams dog food line,, all of a sudden discontinued all sold out,, matter of a few days no warning,, now many people are without the foods thier pets eat and rely on and have to drive an average of 50 miles if they have a vehicle or transportation to feed thier dogs, .. i go there specifically for the dog food and buy other products around that, but until i get the Iams back on the shelf or Kroger /Fred Meyer does i am done shopping there,, marketing is what it is called,, they want us to buy something else because Iams sells so well, so it disappears off the shelf so they can but a shitty brand in its place,, i will not be forced to buy what i do not want,, people should demand it be put back for the consumers. i do not want Kroger brand dog food, no one else carrys it in our area,, like i said,, 50 mile round trip and for that Kroger be damned,, do without my business!

We live in Junction City, Oregon. We are served by one grocery store..Safeway..which is run poorly and under stocked. Junction City is expericencing a growth spurt. Two state facillities (hospital) and several businesses are now or have relocated here. New house construction is underway with the anticipation of the additional jobs. Most of my neighborhood residents drive 15 miles to the nearest “Freddies” which is on Division Avenue, in Eugene, Oregon. We are underseved in this growing community and there are no big box stores. FM would not have competiton. I want to validate my comments by adding that we have no connection to FM, nor do we know anyone who may work for Fred Meyer. That being said, we need a FRED MEYER….so….please…BRING IT ON.

Greetings:

I would like to share with a situation that should not have happened at 365 Renton Center Way SW. The encounter in the meat department should have never happened and it was validated by one of my friends that’s works in the Burien Fred Meyer Meat department. So I feel like I somewhat know I wasn’t considered an unreasonable customer. I also notified the store manager on duty. So if she fails to notify you. and covers for him, I’m confident someone at Corporate will respond.

My situation started approximately 5:00pm, our time, when I asked the seafood counter employee (who was nothing but overly helpful trying to help me…way helpful!!) if he could check the back to see if there were family packs of cubed steaks back there. He returned to let me know one butcher when home the other was at lunch and he was unable to locate the family pack. As I’m leaving this same employee went out of his way to catch up with me to let me know the butcher employee returned from lunch.

When I returned to the meat department and told him what I needed, he said he couldn’t do that and that they have never made family packs of cube steaks…ever…and “we don’t even have a meat code for that”…..so I had him clarify he couldn’t do that. That’s when I called my butcher friend from the Burien store to see if that’s true….there is a Fred Meyer code for it and it can be done. I was still in the meat department. He was standing there. He shrugged his shoulders and said he can’t do something that can’t be done. WOW, huh?

Please also, visual in your minds, what this particular employee looked like. A tattered hat, long greasy black stringy ungroomed hair, street clothes that were REALLY dirty. No…he did not have on a clean cap. No….he did not even have a on a white coat like the other employee. He honestly looked like a stoner and it was gross!

He then came over to me and said”I supposed I could make a Family Pack from the smaller packages already out, but how many go into a Family Pack?” I literally said “Excuse ME!!!”. How do I know?”.

By this time, his appearance and his stoner mannerism was enough. I told him to forget it and contacted the manager. She said she would handle it.

I have no problem revisiting the store, but I’m a little grossed out that someone like him touches the meet. I have a very weak stomach and I’ll never buy meat at that store again.

Please handle this and retrain him on the appearance and customer service policy. I could tell from the other employee’s reaction that he was totally embarrassed. What happened should have never happened. I’ve always gone to this Fred Meyer for convenience, but I think I’ll start going the the Burien store which is not conveniently located for me demographically. Rarely do I buy meats at Fred Meyer, because I have a place I only buy meat from.

I’m giving my family a vegetarian dinner tonight, because I’m a little grossed out. I was not going to have my dinner touched by a greasy stonehead who was mad at me.
It’s for this very reason that I go to a place I trust handling because it’s that important to me.

I have included my email address if you need more information. Please keep my name confidential from the employee I am complaining about.

Thank you for your time. I hope this helps your company seek improvements in that area, in that store, so it’s not awkward for fellow employees and customers.

Ann Birchfield
