Retailer Surprises Customers with Free Grocery Pickup Orders

Meijer customers picking up groceries at their local stores were surprised when they got them for free this holiday season.

The company announced that it gave more than 200 customers free groceries when they came to pick up their orders last weekend ahead of Thanksgiving, according to a Wednesday, November 26 press release.

Team members shared the good news about the Meijer Pickup surprise when customers arrived for their groceries. They were wished a Happy Thanksgiving and given $50 coupons towards their next order.

Officials say 234 of the Grand Rapids-based supercenter’s stores throughout the Midwest participated in the surprise event.

The event is Meijer’s way of showing its pickup customers “how much they’re appreciated especially during a pandemic when the company has seen an unprecedented increase in the use of the program,” according to the press release.

“This year has been challenging for everyone, so we wanted to show our appreciation to some of those customers who have trusted us to do their essential shopping,” said Derek Steele, vice president of customer strategy for Meijer.

“Surprising them as they picked up groceries in preparation for their Thanksgiving meals seemed like an ideal time to do something special.” Some of the surprises included holiday music, bouquets of flowers, and Meijer team members dressed in holiday attire.  MIlive
