Meijer History

Meijer was founded in 1934 in Greenville by Hendrik Meijer.  The first employee was Hendrik’s 14 year old son Frederik (Fred) Meijer.  Additional locations were opened in Ionia and Cedar Springs.

By the 1960s, there were two dozen locations in Western Michigan.

In 1962, the first modern layout “supercenter” design was opened in Grand Rapids.

Under increased competition from Wal-Mart, Meijer has had to lay off a significant number of employees in recent years.  They have also outsourced almost all their Information Technology positions to India.

In 2011, long time CEO Fred Meijer passed away at the age of 91.

Today, Meijer is one of America’s largest private companies.  They operate nearly 200 stores in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky.

I just read the comment left by Mindi from March 18th, 2014. Like her I have been shopping at Meijer for as long as I can remember. My mother use to take five children shopping at the original Meijer store in Standale (back in the 60′s) and she would spend over $100 and fill up three carts with groceries. Unlike Mindi I will not stop shopping at Meijer just because of one bad incident. One Meijer associate who was having a bad day should not be the reason that anyone would stop at Meijer. If she took the time to explain the situation to a store manager (perhaps the next day) I am confident he/she would have taken care of this customer. In closing if the money was so tight how could she afford to have a cell phone to call from the parking lot? How much additional money would this customer have in her budget if she didn’t feel the need to have a cell phone just to live beyond her means and how did her parents/grandparents ever live without having said phone?

I have shopped Meijer stores for as long as I can remember and I have never been treated this badly as I was treated tonight. I am very disappointed and upset with the customer service I received when I went to return two cards so that I could put gas in my car to get to work this week. Instead of friendly service, I was treated by a woman who was very rude, kept interrupting me, with a short fuse and even worse attitude. Instead of helping me, she was impatient and confrontational. I called the store manager from the parking lot and was assured that the situation would be taken care of if I went back in. It wasn’t and so now I have to wait for two to three days for $9.52 to be put back into my bank account. There is a possibility of losing my job because of this. And I used my bank card. But since I had to use it like a credit card (because using the card as a debit I get charged a service fee), I couldn’t get cash back. Really? Over $9.52?! That is the most absolutely absurd thing I have ever heard of in my life. I hardly ever return anything, but this is ridiculous. Meijer needs to change their policy on this. I work hard and I am an honest person. No one should ever be treated this way. I have half a mind to tell everyone and anyone to not shop at the Meijer on Plainfield because of their rude customer service.

Its not a meijer policy idiot. Its a policy put in place by the card companies . Meijer is unable to override them. When u run a card as credit whether its a debit card or not , you are basically saying you are borrowing money. That’s what credit is. You could have taken a in store credit and got gas. You’re just being stupid and annoying.

I wanted to inform you of how happy I am with this store. Tonight we went into the store to purchase groceries and supplies for our new office. During our visit, we were blown away by the great service we received. We asked for assistance in purchasing 2 desks and 3 bookshelves. We were immediately assisted by a gentleman (whom I am regretful that we do not remember his name but was working in furniture/housewares around 8pm-although it may be John or Paul because when I called to get who was working, those were the two people that were working) who helped us load the items, waited for us while we got a credit approval, checked out and he loaded our car. He was extremely friendly, helpful and engaging. The cashier (who was on the lane with 12 items or fewer at the grocery end of the store at approximately 8:30pm) was also extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Her name was Brittany. We just wanted you to know that you have a clean, efficient, friendly store and hope these employees get recognition for their superior work! We will continue to be loyal Meijer shoppers. (And Sandy is a great bonus for our 1 and 2 year old)! Thank you Meijer for a great shopping experience!

This morning (Wednesday, March 5, 2014) I shopped at the Meijer store on East 96th Street in Fishers, Indiana. I want to compliment and thank the most gracious cashier I’ve ever encountered. Her name is Joanne and her terminal number is 18.

When she asked if I had found everything I needed, I confessed that there were a couple of things I hadn’t found. She not only assured me that those items were available, but that she had tried them herself and found them to be “delicious.” She then escorted me to the exact location, where I not only found what I was looking for, but found a couple of other things I had previously missed, as well.

Because of Joanne, I doubled the amount of money I was about to spend at Meijer and reaffirmed that this store would always be my first choice for grocery and household, etc. shopping.

She was so helpful, friendly, professional and courteous that I wanted to take the opportunity to call to your attention and outstanding employee!

On Saturday March 1st around 10:30 a.m. I went to Meijer on South Hurstborne Parkway in Louisville, Kentucky to do my weekly grocery shopping. Due to an impending snowstorm expected to hit our area on Sunday afternoon, the store was very busy. After shopping in the produce section I went on the meat section where I approached the butcher counter to get the next item on my list which was Fresh Catfish Fillets. There was nothing between the butcher and I but the glass case which housed the fish and other meat. I stood at the counter for about two minutes and the butcher on the other side stared at me and never said a word. The other butchers in the store were in the work area tending to and packaging meat. The wait was uncomfortable but I didn’t say anything and the butcher across the counter never said one thing to me. After about 2 minutes another butcher came and waited on me. The man who did wait on me apologized for my wait. I said no problem and then walked on to the packaged meat selection to purchase a Beef Brisket. By this time the butcher who waited on me was restocking meat into the coolers in the outer portion of the meat department. From there the first butcher came from behind the counter and shouted very loudly. “The Mexicans are going back to Mexico. Obama has (f’d, he actually used the word) up this country so bad that the Mexicans are going back to Mexico” Everyone one who was shopping in the section made an audible gasp. Another patron yelled at him (She happened to be as I later found out is of Hispanic decent). I then ask the butcher what was wrong and he repeated the same racist comment. After I picked my mouth up off of the floor and gathered myself the other customer and myself proceeded to the customer service counter and asked to speak with Mr. John Dillon the Store Manager. We explained everything which happened to Mr. Dillon. He asked us the butchers name and we responded his name is “Brook”. The manager then told us he couldn’t tell us what would be done other than he would take care of it. I told him I appreciate whatever he was going to do but I don’t ever want to see Mr. Brook s working there again. I also told Mr. Dillon I would be reporting this incident to the Meijer Corporate Office. I don’t know what ended up happening but I did see Mr. Dillon walking towards the butcher shop and I did hear Brooks’ name being called over the loud speaker.
I have several additional comments:
a) Brooks’ co-workers never told him to stop talking that way or went in a direction to find a manager. Which leads me to believe it was common for him to talk this way.
b) Brooks’ is a danger to society when he is working with meat cutters and knives. He should not be allowed to continue to work there.
c) I live directly across the street from Meijer and I shop there at least several times a week. I find it disconcerting to think there is someone as angry and potentially violet working in a family atmosphere.
d) Prior to this experience every experience I have ever had at Meijer has been a wonderful. However, this one experience will forever be itched in my mind.
Immediate action needs to be taken.
Sincerely,
Claudette A. Berry

Dear Mr. Meijer:

I am envisioning several men, leaning back in their high back leather chairs, around an oval mahogany table, smoking cigars while brainstorming how they can make morons out of the consumer’s shopping at their Meijer stores. Through all the smoke in the air they came up with M-Perks, which is the most ridiculous program I ever saw implemented by a group of supposedly educated people. The only excuse for this program is that there was way too much smoke in the air, which undoubtedly clouded your thinking process.

Well folks, the smoke in the air got the best of you since many of us are not happy with the M-perk club. I for one DO NOT want to go on the Internet every time you text us to “Clip” the promotion that you want to lure us in with. In fact I resent it! Just for kicks and giggles I was telling my husband about that dumb a** program and challenged him to successfully try to pick up a prescription. He is about as illiterate as they get when it comes to computers. We went through the drive-thru at your Marketplace location in Rochester Hills. I sat in the passenger seat to observe the fun. They sent out the portable computer that you have to input all the data necessary to be a “Moron”-perk member picking up the prescription. He used a pen to input the data and kept messing it up. The employee suggested he use his finger. Each key hit would key in two letters at a time. I began to laugh since I could see the employee was getting impatient. The more the guy tried to help him from the window the funnier I thought it was. Finally, the employee asked me if I could PLEASE help him. I did, through laughter and was successful to the relief of the employee. I understand your date of birth for insurance purposes but the phone number, and password is asinine.

Please believe that I am not the only one who feels this way. I personally DO NOT go on the computer to “Clip” anything for Moron-perks. In fact I despise going on the computer to start with so I refuse to do it. My daughter signed me up. She knows my cell# and password so she clips what she wants and gets all the rewards for both her and I. It does however force me to input all the data necessary when I pick up a prescription, which is why I am seriously considering switching over to the Walmart Pharmacy as my prescriptions come up for renewal. Walmart’s is just as convenient as Meijers. If I need something while out, I will stop at a non-Meijer grocery store, usually Kroger where I use a simple Kroger card to get discounts.

This program is also not fair to those, mostly the elderly living only on social security, who can use these discounts, but don’t have a computer or know how to use one. On the other hand maybe you implemented this program purposely to save money on those folks. I recently commented on how I disliked your program to someone in the pharmacy and she said if I had a smart phone it would be easier on me. Politely I responded that I was happy with my “Dumb Ass” phone and I would shoot myself before getting one so I could make my M-perk life easier.

As I was looking for administrative contact information I ran across forty-one Meijer related comments. Four were positive and thirty-seven were negative. If you’re interested, you can find those comments on http://www.corporateofficehq.com/meijer-corporate-office/ The only reason for this letter is that I feel it’s unfair to take out my frustrations out on the Meijer employees, I thought it only fair to let the rocket scientists know how I feel about their M-perk concept. Let me just add that there are many who will not take the time to complain as I just have but will simply stop shopping at Meijer and go where life is less complicated. Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider discontinuing this program and issuing cards that other merchants offer for their promos. BTW, I plan to add this letter to the forty-one comments listed on the web site noted above as well.

Sincerely,
Bianka Hendren

I have a question about *meijer policy* I work with elite marketing. We got moved back by receiving. And the nearest outlet to plug in our tablet is in the receiving area. One lady said it’s a health violation. Just using a outlet to charge a tablet. Another guy said it’s against Meijer policy for elite to use outlets back there. I thought Meijer and elite marketing had a close understanding about each other and employees and managers being respectful? All my question is- is a against policy for me to use a outlet in receiving area. Been doing it for 2 months without a complaint till now. *blue shirts* thinking they run this shi*.

I love this story. Fred Meijer Mantra “Customers don’t need us we need them.” Now read this story.

GAYLORD — A retired mail carrier said he’s been fired from a job as a greeter at a Meijer in northern Michigan after rushing to the parking lot to put out a vehicle fire.

David Bowers, 62, said he grabbed a fire extinguisher when a customer entered a Meijer store in Gaylord last month pleading for help.

Grand Rapids–based Meijer won’t specifically comment on the matter, but said it has policies for dealing with an emergency.

“The one supervisor told me that my heart was in the right place, but my brain wasn’t,” Bowers told TV station WPBN-WTOM.

His wife, Lynn Bowers, said the couple decided to go public after receiving a cheery Christmas card from Meijer just a few days ago.

“I was furious. We couldn’t believe it,” she told The Associated Press on Friday, referring to the card. “It was the perfect job for him. He loves to talk.”

Parking-lot fire

Ken Kuzon needed to put out a fire in the glove box of his van on Nov. 14.

Bowers said he left the store and handed a fire extinguisher to Kuzon. The flames were out in seconds.

Bowers, who was paid $9.30 an hour, returned to his post greeting shoppers.

“My truck would’ve been completely burned,” Kuzon said. “I just think it’s ridiculous. Why should you be penalized for being a good Samaritan?”

Procedure

Meijer released a statement suggesting Bowers should not have dashed to the van.

“We have well-established safety procedures for emergency situations, and we train all team members on those procedures,” Meijer said. “These procedures help ensure the safety of everyone, both customers and team members, and our team members know there are consequences when they don’t follow them.”

“He’s very bummed out,” Lynn Bowers said. “It’s a split-second decision you make. He was never told there was a procedure for a car fire.”

Greeter

Bowers had worked at Meijer for about 4 years.

He and his wife delivered mail for years in the Detroit area, before retiring from the U.S. Postal Service and moving to northern Michigan.

Bowers once got in hot water for chasing a shoplifter, but otherwise had a good record at Meijer.

“If they offered me the job back, I would go back,” he said. “I know Meijer signs the paychecks, but my thought was I always worked for the people coming in and out those doors. It was similar to being a mailman. I took care of those customers.”

DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY!!!! I ordered something for a Christmas present on the 1st of December, it is the 17th and still has not been put on a truck to be shipped to me. I have called 3 times and get the same run around. They had no problem taking the money from my account, but cannot figure out why my item has not shipped. Now I have no money to buy something else and no present…. MEIJER SUCKS!

This letter is for Corporate office. CEO: Hank Meijer, Mark Murray, CFO: Jim Walsh
COO: J.K. Symancyk
I disagree with the firing of an employee for leaving his post to help a customer’s van that was on fire. I realize you may have your reasons, but if I fell in front of your store and broke a leg , I would expect some help from your store employee, not just let me lie there in fear of his/her job.
I don’t think I need to go to your store any more if you fire an employee for helping a customer. Your policies have many of the cashiers so afraid of their jobs that they can not allow the use of coupons that a person in line gives to you. You are getting a bad reputation from your customer base. We have Kroger, Target plus other mom and pop stores in our area. You wont get a like on Facebook from me!
Good Bye Meijers, Hello Kroger

There wa a man recently fired from the Gaylord meijer (my local store) from leaving his post as a greeter. He left to put out a fire in a customer van. They fire him because they said its in their policy to not leave because you need to keep the customers and employees safety in my first. Seeing as that guy who’s can caught on fire was a customer and he left to put it out to help said customer why should he be fired? Now he’s out of a job and income because he did not only the right thing but had the customer In mind.

I agree with all the above comments. I sent a silent whistle complaint about moldy, outdated, walked over (because we have no room to walk in the back room) products & I get dragged into the director’s office by the grocery manager & bombarded by both of them about it, without actually telling me that’s what it was about, leaving no time to get my thoughts together, at all. I got asked why I don’t just quit then & if I’m such a great employee why I didn’t clean up gravy on the floor (that we can never get to because the entire backroom is overfilled with food) but no mention of how they might fix some of the serious issues or listening to some suggestions of process changes from me….who has management experience and works in the trenches, seeing the poor processes that cause the disaster day in & day out. Seriously! This was a silent whistle complaint, so much for keeping it quiet and so much for an “open door policy”. Yeah right! Also, why in the heck does it go to the director and not someone above him! He’s part of the problem that needs fixing. There is absolutely no forward thinking on the part of management. No wonder everyone’s morale is so low & hardly anyone actually works. I pleaded for help in my complaint. I’m wasn’t just complaining because I thinks it’s fun nor should any employee need to sob after being demoralized by the director. Just because people have to stay at a job doesn’t mean they can be treated like SH..! I WILL be taking this much further & much faster, if I continue to get treated like crap, like I did today. There are silent whistle posters all over the place but where does it state who I contact after the silent whistle didn’t work. Maybe the health department will help or the labor board???

I have contacted Meijer several times in Normal, IL to obtain a product and left my phone number for the manager and never received a return phone call. This isn’t very good customer service. Finally I did get an answer to an email and was told the product was not available, no mention of something that might be an alternative or possibly I could order it online. Just no it isn’t available. Very disappointing and if others are treated this way, I’m sure their business profits will reflect this lack of helpfulness. Very surprising for a big store like this – I will take my business elsewhere for sure.

I used be an employee long time ago. I am hearing complaints about this holiday season of the stores being open on thanksgiving. The other was no sign of Christian ornaments or books etc. funny how they consider Fred to be a Christian and a philanthropist. One thing I do want to point out for the holidays if the corporate office and the CEOs can have the holidays off why can’t your stores and employees have those days off too? If this all about making more money or beating you competition or trying to make a good year-end sales quota for bigger tax benefits then you are still losing more customers and employees despite the remodeling you are doing in your stores makes it no better. Hank if your anything like your dad I would give up the $14 billion dollars you make a year and give every one of your employees in your stores raises excluding your management teams. Oh one last thing, get rid of your union dues as well they have done nothing to help your business.

Over the Summer months I worked at your Sandusky, Ohio store #142. When I was hired I was told what a friendly, family oriented store it was. I soon found out that was NOT the case, and from the comments from above, this isn’t the only store with this problem! The store manager and team leaders need a lesson on courtesy and treating people decent! They have meetings about how to be friendly to customers when the majority of them wouldn’t even acknowledge their employees as they pass them in the store! ( I have heard this from customers as well). Then to top it off….they like to eat in the lunch room disregarding any employee in the room…..where at one point I heard the store manager, Edna, talking about a fellow employee in a negative manner! I felt this was very unprofessional and un-called for!! If you want to help this store’s business…I suggest doing some house cleaning!! If your managers can’t treat your employees well….how do you think they will treat your customers!!

Im a team member at the midland location. Over the last several months it has become harder and harder to get our TSR Pat Dyer to come to our location in a timely fassion. After discussing this wit other taem membes here and at other locations, it has come to light that its because he spends most days at the Mt Pleasant location for lunch and every day he is there aboout 330pm.
After talking with several team members that work both locations, we now know its because he has been having an affair with a team member at Mt Pleasant. One who is married and has young children.
This feels to rest of us as preferential status.
Not only is it wrong to put us after Mt Pleasant, but for him to persue a fellow team member with a family is appauling.

If you want to bring a store into another town, DON”T discontinue the add. If they are going down to the Detroit area, aren’t they bankrupt? You have older people here that do not have computers but like to save $$$$ on groceries and every little bit helps. OK, that’s it for now.

I’m curious to know why store 125 Illinois road has two elderly woman in electronics as full time employees. Neither of them can ever provide me with any information I need on electronics, they tell me to wait why they fetch either Sam or Nathan. Why waste my time and your customers time by having these women as the bulk of your photo/electronics area? The one woman, Kapi I believe, has mixed up our orders constantly and has provided us wrong information countless times. Every time I go in she either is just standing there or she runs and hides. It’s a shame because the other workers are so extremely helpful there. I’ve never been disappointed by either of them. It’s to the point where I only go there when one of the guys is working but I’m told they are only part time which makes it evening difficult to get help. I constantly ask them if they plan to ever be here more often and one of them tells me he wants full time but they only have full time spots for these two elderly ladies. Isn’t that counter productive for your business? Why not move these ladies to a department where they can actually assist someone? Why waste my time and other people’s time like this? You really need to reevaluate this and I plan to continue to go to corporate about this until you get actual people back there who can assist me like Sam and Nathan.

We shop at the Big Rapids, MI store and lately we have run into the problem of not enough Handicap parking and almost never any working electric carts. The worse day was we had just come back from cancer center where my husband (a retired employee) needed meds and it was pay week so needed to do a bit of shopping. He has had to put off hip surgery due to his cancer and relys on a cane and walker and I also have severe arthritis so we needed 2 carts. None were available they either were charging or in use. Ones that came back needed charging. Finally one was available (nearly 1/2 hr. wait) so I let him go get the items he needed and waited for another. I finally got one after more than a 45 min. wait and then I did not get all my things done before battery dies. This store is in an area where there are many seniors. More carts are needed. I spoke to the manager and he took note. Previously we sent in comments about it and 6 weeks later it has been same problem every time we shop. Chis the manager there was very apologetic and was not aware the problem exits. Please for the sake of the seniors that shop there get more carts. Hopefully we will not need the use of any of them by the fall.

Hi, I just wanted to say how disappointed I am that Meijer stopped doubling coupons my family and I have shopped in your store for many years and one of the reasons was the double coupons. When using the coupons I would purchase more than I planned so that I was spending more in the store than I would have because the coupons doubled. I feel by not doubling the coupons you are losing more customers and business most people will buy more if they feel that they are saving. Now I can go to any other store and spend my money because they dont double either. At these times in the economy it was a very nice feature for customers. It would be nice if you reconsidered the policy I feel that it would help your business greatly and I am not the only one that feels that way. I now go to other stores that are closer to my home because I can get the same prices and food anywhere. If possible please reconsider this coupon policy it would be a great asset to your business.

I was disappointed as well when they stopped doubling coupons, however I signed up for mperks, which is an electronic coupon program. I have saved so much more money with mperks than I have with coupons. Plus the rewards are great!! My daughter and atep daugher both wanted a Barbie Dreamhouse ($160+tax each), with only mperks, i got them for $59.35!! Score!! I receive $20 in free merchandise every month from the rewards. Please check into the mperks program. It’s worth it!

We have a Meijer platinum credit card. Through the years we have faithfully paid our balances off on that card. Last month we took that card to the holy land in Israel. Because we were going overseas, we called Meijer and have them reduce the ceiling amount we could put on the card for safety reasons. Now that we have returned to the United States, we would like to have the higher ceiling amount back on our platinum credit card so we can charge more on that card. We called the department that handles the Meijer credit card and they told us NO, we cannot put the old ceiling amount on the card. We were very faithful customers of the Meijer stores, but it seems like they want to play games and really put us between a rock and a hard place. We feel very disgruntled to the fact that Meijer refuses to put things back the way it was before we took the trip! (A higher ceiling)

I am an owner operator and deliver goods/produce all over the country.I am currently at the detroit meijer warehouse where I have been since 6am this morning. The company I have my truck leased to comes here everyday just not me as a driver. I have been talked down to—treated like a second class citizen— had my corporate office called when after 4 hours of waiting spending money of fuel to run the truck I asked why and was told because “THATS THE WAY IT IS” as though these people are gods. Basically treated like a dog SIT—-STAY—good boy. No other grocery warehouse has done this bad, and I’ve been to almost all of them. The contempt shown towards drivers is unbelievable–does not ANYONE realize that some drivers have an education–are retired from other careers (I am a retired collection agent). Well my family on avg. spends $200–250 a week in meijers stores NEVER again will that happen.

I recently terminated my employment at Meijer’s store 125 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I worked for Meijers for 6 years, doing the best job I could considering the garbage I had to put up with in that store. I came in everyday on time, rarely took time of and was very good at my job on the pricing team. Unfortunately the disrespect and arrogance of the management of that store made the job almost unbearable. You people talk of how much you respect and value your team members but there is very little sign of that at this store.
If the moral at 125 was any lower it would have to get better first.

In 6 years I have never asked for a holiday off but when I asked for the day before and the day of memorial day off , I first had to listen to my new team leader, Roxie
Hissong complain that she never had a holiday off, that is her problem not mine.
We were told before she came that it was up to us whether we wanted to take a holiday off or work it, I always worked it when I could.

When I told our Lines Leader Steve Jordon that I had asked for these days off he became rude and told me that I was already off for the holiday but could not have the sunday before off because of setting the sunday ad. However, he had just let another member of the pricing team have 2 weekends off in a row as part of her vacation without any regard for the ad on those 2 sundays. In the past we were allowed days of according to who put in for them first but Mr Jordan is now telling me that he is going by senority, something he never said to any of us. When I reminded him of this he became arrogant and rude.

I reminded him that if he is going strickly by the book as to how we do things in this store, then I would like to know why another member of our team, Gailen Bender, is allowed to take days of during blackout days. I also asked him why ms Bender, who is a PIA is allowed to work as a APC in home? She was an IA but took the job as a PIA when she thought she was going to get her hours cut, but did not want to do the job of PIA so our team leaders before Roxie allowed her to start helping as a APC when she got her scanning done but it got to the point where she was no longer scanning and correcting at all. That is not fair to the rest of us who are expected to do our jobs. The PIA job pays more and gives that person every weekend off yet she does not do that job. The company is paying her to do a higher paying job but she goes off and does what she wants to do which pays less and is expected to work weekends. She reaps the benefits of one position but does another. The other PIA, Barb Galmeyer doesn’t do the job at all let alone correctly. She treats the position as a social event, but no one seems to care.
She has been caught several times polishing her nails in the systems office on the clock,
pays her bills on the clock and eats her breakfast every morning in the systems office on the clock. We have complained about this to management many times but no one cares.
However if I ask for a day off all Hell breaks loose.
Mr. Jordan told me that if I did not like it there that I could leave and that he would be glad to help with the process. I told him that tells me all I need to know about how much I am valued at this sorry excuse of a company. This is why moral is so low at this store. I am sure that know one at corporate cares about any of this but I just thought I would let you know what kind of store you have.
The only sure thing at Meijer has nothing to do with your so called core values, you have none except your undivided respect and greed for money. You seem to have forgotten that without the lowly teammember your arrogant lines leaders and team leaders would have nothing to do. You also need to hire store directors that actually have a brain. I am sorry if I wasted any on your precious time reading this, if you did it at all.

Have a great day, I know I will knowing I will never have to put up with Meijer store stupidity again!

Attn: Mark Murray
I am very disappointed and frankly shocked about your policy to change your rewards program from 20% off groceries to your standard (offered to anyone on MPerks) 15% off
GM and 5% off of groceries. Where is the incentive to use your credit card? It no longer exists so why should I use your card? There are many credit cards out there that offer much better incentives. I have been a very loyal customer in both your store and in using your credit card for many many years. More importantly to you is that I spend thousands of dollars in your store and charge even more dollars on your credit card. I realize that you are in business to make a profit but this decision may cause you to lose alot of customers and unless you offer something better that what you give everyone else you will be losing me too.

I was wondering who to contact about the possible new building site in manistee. I know that you have purchased the Parkdale block building, and was wondering if it were possible to clean up some of the left over blocks before the possible building of the new store. Please contact me and lwt me know who I should contact. Thanks for your time

In response to your change from 20% to 5%. Upon receiving notice of this a month or 2 ago, I still get angry walking into the store. Going from 20% down to 5% is outrageous to put it mildly. There are more lucrative cards for sure and closer and more convenient stores. So disappointing.

My 77 yr.old mother in law Betty Creg from Fern Creek Ky. was shopping in your Hurstbourne store when 3 items were taken off the bill ( 2 cake mixes and a cooking oil ) but were not taken out of the cart because her husband already walked to the car and she was into her coupons to remember to take them out. She paid the 80 dollars and for the 7 dollars of the 3 items she was taken back in the office and yelled at and said she was a thief! Told she has to pay a $250 fine and on probation. NEVER stole a thing in her life and have spent thousands of dollars at your store since it opened. Common Sense took a back seat for 2 cake mixes and oil. She will never step foot in a Meijers again and she is afraid of the terrible 2 managers that were mean to her and she was shaking and just shut down. Shame on that store. The new cashier never said oh we have to take those 3 items out so Betty forgot also. A Innocent senior citizen. No record EVER! All major shopping her and her husband have done there since that store opened how foolish. My question is will the store take the high road and apologize to Betty Creg? Wonderful Mom, Granda & Great Grandma and a wonderful citizen. Again people Common Sense has to be used.

The charges on Betty Creg were dropped as they should have been. Betty’s daughter talked directly to Molly at corporate and Molly said that should have NEVER happened. Now I hope the company sends Betty an apology for the embarrassment that her and her husband have endured and the sleepless nights. Also the manager that did this needs to be talked to about some common sense. Thank you, Lisa Creg

This letter is for corporate but I hope the public will get to see it I was working at the Meijer store in mi 12 mile and mound road I worked with a terrible staff of managers that treat the employees like shit I was on my period and wanted to go and clean myself up and was not allowed to go and do that was told to stay at register or go home I need my job not only that but im on disability so I can only work so many hours a week they continue to schedule me at more hours than I am suppose to work …somebody please retrain these moron managers at this place but that’s not the worst part I was told by a manager … Maralyn quote if I knew you had a disability I never would have hired you …yeah that’s right she told me “quote” ..If I knew you had a disability “I never would have hired you” unquote needless to say apparently Meijers seems to have an issue or problem with disability or with people on disability .And this is not the end of this issue. If when as employees has an issue or concern and you can’t talk to your manager or assistant manager what else are we suppose to do or whoi else can we talk to… we are PEOPLE NOT ROBOTS…….
