Meijer customers who picked up groceries from their local stores were surprised to find them free this Christmas season

The company announced that it provided free groceries to more than 200 customers when they picked up their orders last weekend before Thanksgiving, according to a Wednesday Nov. 26 press release

Team members shared the good news of the Meijer pickup surprise when customers arrived for their purchases, wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving day and receiving $ 50 coupons for their next order

According to official figures, 234 of the Grand Rapids-based supercenter stores in the Midwest participated in the surprise event

The event is Meijer’s way of showing his collection customers “just how much they are valued, especially during a pandemic when the company sees an unprecedented increase in program usage,” the press release reads

“This year has been a challenging year for everyone, so we wanted to show our appreciation to some of the customers who trusted us in their important purchases,” said Derek Steele, vice president of customer strategy at Meijer

“Surprising them when they were picking up groceries in preparation for their Thanksgiving meals seemed like an ideal time to do something special”

The surprises included Christmas music, bouquets of flowers and members of the Meijer team in holiday clothes

“You have no idea how much this means to us,” Swinney said in the press release, “We just had a baby and this help is going to make a huge difference to our Thanksgiving Day I wish I could hug you”

At the beginning of the pandemic and when the company started offering free service when customers ordered $ 50 worth of goods, customers took advantage of Meijer’s grocery pickup facility, the option is offered from 8am to 8pm each day
