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 have been a loyal and satisfied customer for years, however, recent corporate decisions have made shopping a dread. Advertised items are not on the shelves, but sometimes in back and not yet stocked. Shopping on the week-end usually means nothing you came for is available and you must get a rain check if you want to waste ,yet, more time. Yesterday, I was happy to see that a favorite wine was on sale. Though the shelf label was correct, another wine was stocked in its place and none of the four people in the area (store employees and wine vendors) were able to tell me if it was discontinued. It was not in a different area, as I wasted time attempting a search. There is no accountability, probably due to a broken organizational system. Employees are understaffed (as evidenced by inability to stock products already delivered), underpaid and disenchanted (as evidenced by poor retention and poor working conditions). Consumers are disrespected by lack of advertised items, decreasing brand selection, disregard for the time spent on futile searches and communications. I hope that your attempts at being competitive also impact the corporate hierarchy responsible for the poor decisions that will bring your business to its knees and threaten survival of my neighborhood store.

I think it’s time to say something positive about Meijer. I have shopped
at Meijer for fifty three years and at different locations and have never found the things
that are mentioned above. In spite of all the complaints I have found the prices have always been the lowest including Walmart. If it’s not n sale today wait for a few days and it
will go on sale. I have always found food to be fresh and never outdated. It makes me wonder how true all these comments are. In a court of law one would have to prove what they are saying or the issue would be thrown out! Meijer must be dong something right or they wouldn’t still be in business. Where is Kroger, D&W, Plumbs and all the rest who used to be here in Grand Rapids?
I have always found Meijer to be the cleanest store and most clerks to be nice. The one who aren’t will change very fast if reported. You know Meijer has to hire from the people who apply and the people who apply are the people in that area so it says something about
the people in the area so don’t blame Meijer.
Thank you,
Shirley Boorsma

Went to Meijer Store # 178 in Aurora Illinois on 04/23/16. Promotion was on for horizon milk. If you two you get Horizon Macaroni cheese organic pack free. To my dismay when I did check the Macaroni it was expired on Apr-08. They had about 25 boxes of Macaroni sitting on the shelf -ALL EXPIRED. What a shame. Macaroni being a children’s food and they had no clue that they had 25 boxes sitting on the shelf expired 2 weeks ago. For sure I called the manager and he apologised and removed the boxes of the shelf. I will be doing random check again on the same product. They better be ready as this will be addressed to consumer affairs and eventually FDA now.

It’s great your stores have organic produce. Please continue to upgrade your grocery items. I bought of a loaf Meijer pumpernickel bread and was extremely disappointed by the plastic-y tastelessness. My sister, who had some, said she’d take it back. Instead, I’m going to recommend to various Meijer personnel that you further your efforts to provide better and healthier food. Have you got some kind of office that oversees progress toward providing healthier, more tasteful food?

Hi meijer, please tell me why i mailed into you documentation of me and my husbands hospital visit bills it has been 3 weeks and i have not herd anything back from anyone, in the begining i was mailed 2 release forms one for 100$, for my husband and 100$ for myself tiffany alaweia, i cqlled back bc that was only the money we had to pay downn , just to be seen by the clinic bc i have no insurance right now , my husband and i bought cooked chicken and it was bloody, my husband and i took it back they took pictures everything. To make sure it was bood sure enough it was , a couple days later well that was the start of visiting the urgent care every other day, my husband and i had gotten really sick. They wanted all the original documents and i sent them. Inwaited 2 weeks before i started calling and now commenting. Nsxt step is im going to get a lawyer and sue. I really dont want to do that, but first i will email pictures of the chicken and a short story to what happend and send it to all tv news channels. In detriot in the newspapers everything, first me and my husband get hush your mouth releases for 200$ not even 10% of what we have paid and now i refuse to sighn them all i want is the money we paid for the doctor visits. And the doctor stays, obviously they seen the bloody chicken and they know it was the truth or they wouldnt have given us the 200$ releases. I just want to know why you all just forget about people like me. I dont ask for much , i provide the proof. I call im polite and understanding. And didnt want to make meijer look bad over emails like this or bad moth them on facebook and newschannels. Or news letters, and i didnt jump sue happy. A lot of people in my shoes would have already been lawyerd up and ready for action, with all the proof i have ,how sick me and my husband got. All we asked for was to be respected and to get our money back, and now nobody is calling us back, and i paid to have that mail sent next day priority , there no way they didnt get it! Even if yall didnt get it. A simple call back to let us know that would be nice a simple answering of the phone something ,but instead i get a f*** you tiffany alaweia , i feel like they think im going to forget. But really be smart meijer. Just give me the releases for the 1500$ and pay us what you owe us. If someone dose not contact us with in 7 days i will be calling my lawyer like i said. Newspaper facebook twitter every news tv show to submit the pictures of the chicken, the releases and my story, so please save us both the trouble and time. And settle with me. All i want is most of the money we had to pay to be seen , that is it. That compared to a quadruple the amount of that i think is very fair,

All i want is what my husband and i already paid for thag is it. By the way whomever is reading this i dont mean to come off as a asshole i just want the money back that i had to pay bc me and my husband got $ick off of your chicken.

My name is april. My 16 year old daughter bought her father a auto scanner for cars and it’s not what she thought it was. She was very disappointed to know that she spent $158.00 on this item and she misplaced the reciept and we have gone to 3 different miejers that will not return it or give her store credit for it. She works a part time job and saved her money for 2 months to buy this. Now she can’t get a store credit to buy him something else. What do we do with this product we won’t use?? Please help us with this problem soon! Thank you! Sincerely very frustrated customer
