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 was in your 7250 pacific ave. Store this morning. I was shopping with WIC checks and they wouldn’t let me get half of the stuff on my checks so I had her call the manager. His name was Adam and he was insanely rude. I had just listened to them both not take a legitimate coupon from the customer before me. Now I go up with all of the items my book allows. I keep it with me. She tells me no canned milk, even the isle says I can have it, no. Cheese, is this a pound you can only have a pound. This is a poor area of Tacoma, what do you think that says to people around me that were watching them. I have tried emailing you on your website it must be broken. I think I will take to my mom groups on facebook if I don’t hear back from you soon. You have my email.

This was at your Redmond, WA Fred Meyer Jeweler location
17667 NE 76th St, Redmond, WA 98052

I would like to share my experience with you on my very first time in a Fred Meyer Jewelers store. I have always shopped at Kay Jewelers for any piece of jewelry I have gotten, but since I shop regularly at Fred Meyer grocery I thought I would try the Jewelry store.


It was bad from the very start. I came in to get my ring cleaned and to find my husband a wedding band for work (something cheap and can be scratched) As I was talking with the employee I made a joke about how it took longer to find his ring than it did for him to find mine.. Her comment was my ring was “cute and simple” SIMPLE is the exact word she used to describe my wedding rings. She does not know what the back story could have been with my ring. Maybe my husband worked his tail off for years to get me my ring, and that’s years of hard work I am wearing, maybe it was the ring I picked out that I feel is my dream ring, maybe it was a ring handed down. She has no idea, but to call a customer’s ring “simple” is like telling them they have a cheap ring.

So now on to my purchasing experience:

1. I picked out a ring for my husband and during the check out the employee told me my total would be $86.83 (this was the final total after tax) so as she is trying to use my card (I just opened a Fred Meyer Jewelers credit card, and only had a paper copy) she says she is unable to make the purchase and brings over the manager. The manger then has this idea to purchase a gift card with my credit card and pay that way. Smart move manager, now if I want to return it I have to get store credit, and not back on my credit card. Makes no sense how I can purchase a gift card with my credit card, but not a ring.
2. I ask her how long it will take to get my ring (just out of plain curiosity) and she said she didn’t know she said between two days or up to 2 weeks. I have always been give a time frame, I know they are never exact. But hearing “I don’t know, usually 2 days but up to 2 weeks” isn’t really reassuring.
3. She has now purchased my gift card and while giving me the receipt I realized that the manager has now changed my total from $86.83 to $111.67. So I ask her why my total was different and she tells me that it was for the lifetime warranty on the ring.. I did not ask for the lifetime warranty nor did I want to purchase it. She also never told me she was adding the purchase on my card. The whole reason for my purchase was a ring that could get dirty and scratched.
4. As the original girl was filling out my customer info she asked my billing address, which I gave to her no big deal. After they gave me my receipt I noticed that not only she entered my address incorrectly but that she also decided to click the little box that’s says “shipping address same as billing” without even asking me if I wanted it shipped to my house. (Which this is the very first time I have ever ordered from a jewelry store that did not ship to the store) So when I told her of this mistake they told me there was no way to change my address, they called in and said they can change what the employee messed up, but there is no way they can ship to a different address. Well here we are mid November, what if this ring was a gift for my husband and I didn’t want him to know? She never asked. Luckily enough he knows, the only issue is; no one is at my house to sign for my package! What do they suggest? Me calling fed ex to have it sent to Fed-Ex location and have me pick it up.. So now I have to go out of my way because of their mess up? I also work the hours that they are open, so now I have to find a way to get the ring.
5. So asking if I could cancel my order, because I now have no way to get my package I was once again told “there is nothing we can do” and I can’t get a refund until they have the product in hand. So now I have to find some way to get to the fed ex location because my house and work are 20 minutes apart one way, all while I am at work during their business hours. But then when I do get the product to return I now have to receive store credit, because of this so called “credit card” issue.. Well played manager.

So for my first experience in a Fred Meyer Jewelry store, it did not go well. I will continue shopping at Fred Meyer grocery but I will never step foot in the jewelry. I will continue going to Kay, and I really regret not going there in the first place.

I was insulted and scammed by your 72nd and Pacific ave Tacoma jewelry store employee on 10/18/15.
I complained to the store manager immediately and was told that the general manager would cintact me. NO REPLY. ..
I the emailed a complaint that went to krogers corporate in Cincinnati, and got a email that a representative of krogers /fred meyers would contact me within 24 hours. NO REPLY ..
I then called fred meyer corp and was given a phone number in Raleigh, NC. ,to verbally express my story of what happened and the representative insured me that the chian of command line of management woyld get a notification of my complaint and someone would contact me. It’s been a week as of today.NO REPLY. ..


My father said, everyone has 12 good friends and by the end of the week, 2400 people will know if you did good or bad.

After reading your comment, I was wondering the email that you used to send your complaint? I am trying to find a good contact to email about mine.

Thank you!

I was followed while grocery shopping at the south salem fred meter today and told to leave because I am a jewish, in worse terms, she didn’t have her employee tag on and called me a kike and to go to the kosher section. The management would not admit that she worked there, and said the tape was on the fritz. so disappointed in this store, I have no idea what to do next.


Amy Rosenberg October 30, 2015 at 9:11 pm

If this is removed while in moderation I will contact the AJC. Then you will have all of the Jewish people that you just love so much all over there… :)

Hello, i have a question about store number 391# with the HR department i received a phone call from the corporate office about a job application but when i show’d up to the Fred Meyer in Totem Lake apparently they were gone on Vacation time, i last show’d up about two week ago dated 10/15/2015 and also 9/20/2015 i been up to the front desk and waited for customer service too. From who i talked to on the phone from Corporate after fire you we never work with you again pretty much on the phone line. i’m just wondering if that was the case.

To top management, marketing, and sales:

I am a retired marketing communications and PR consultant. I watch how people react to marketing ideas and I know when they are and are not working.

This past week, your Oregon City store began a promotion that uses loudspeaker announcements to call shoppers’ attention to one or more new promotional efforts. The announcements are loud and very intrusive on the shopping experience. I don’t listen to the announcements. I just want them to stop…NOW.

I have watched other shoppers cringe at the noise of the announcements. Like me, everyone else seems to wish it would just go away. No matter how slowly or clearly the announcer tries to speak, it is barely understandable and we do not care. When I was speaking to my wife on my cell phone, she could not hear me due to the background noise that she found obnoxious as well.

I love shopping at the Oregon City store. I sometimes shop for clothing items or hardware or garden supplies. And my wife and I buy most of our groceries there. And I buy gas for my pickup at your gas pumps.

BUT – I will not tolerate the loudspeaker announcements. I’m not looking for the Kmart shopping experience – I avoided Kmart like the plague, partly due to their constant obnoxious announcements. Their “blue light specials” could not save them and I doubt that a similar strategy will improve sales at Fred Meyer.

When I talked to your store managers about the noise, they said many people had voiced similar complaints and suggested I fill out a comment form. But they also said that they have no control over that kind of promotion – that it is a corporate decision. So, I’m appealing to you to stop that promotional strategy.

If you want to call attention to a particular promotion, station an employee or two in strategic locations and have them talk to shoppers directly to let them know when and where to find a demonstration or promotion. Place the promotion in the most visible place to make the most shoppers aware of it.

But above all. Turn off that horrible noise to which no one listens and everyone wants to just end.
