- General Info:
- The first Meijer grocery store was opened in Greeneville, Mich., in 1934 with $338.76 worth of merchandise. After opening several local grocery stores over the next 30 years, the company underwent a transformation in 1962 when it opened its first Meijer Thrifty Acres location, a food and general merchandise store, which many consider the birth of the one-stop shopping center. Meijer s stores have since grown into superstores, which feature more than 40 departments, such as electronics, outdoor living, toys, home and workshop. With its headquarters in Grand Rapids, Mich., the company has more than 150 stores throughout the Midwest, including one in Dublin, Ohio. Each store is open 24 hours a day, 364 days a year, closing only for Christmas. Each store also features a pharmacy and a film-processing center.

My husband and I were looking for a very cheap old-style (non-flat screen) tv for my little sister as a gift. We found a perfect one on sale, but they only had the display left, which we didn't mind taking. They had to search and search for a remote that would match it (after we waited quite a while to even see someone), and then we were told that they couldn't take the remote out of the package b/c they would lose money for opening it and ruining it, even though it was going to help sell a tv and we would have bought the remote as well if it worked. They were non-apologetic, gave us no other options or offered any other deals and honestly didn't care if they got our business or not. We were livid when we left, especially after having spent a very long time (wasted). I don't have anything against Meijer, but I will never go back to that one...ESPECIALLY to buy anything electronic.
