- & Their produce clerks – They also have a bunch of funny clerks that work on the produce section, because they refuse to restock the counters until the last smashed vegetable is bought by someone. Should someone tell them that it only makes them seem as if they don’t have products anymore?
- The size problem (that’s actually universal, at this point) – So, I think it’s safe to say that the size game on food producers has gone down the hill. In my opinion, at least. A quart is no longer the quart we knew, and an 18-ounce jar of peanut butter is now only 15 ounces. I never thought that I’d come back to my grandma’s words, but it’s true! I mean, it’s pretty obvious which products have been reworked to hide a possible reduction in the amount of product and which have not.
- Shopping for toilet paper – Am I the only one out there that believes we’re getting seriously ripped off one sheet at a time? Because I think it’s becoming harder every day to figure out how much toilet paper you’re about to buy. Is it a single, a double, a triple, or a mega toilet paper roll? I really can’t tell.
- Their cashiers – I don’t know if that ever happened to you, but their cashiers don’t seem to know which vegetables they’re selling. If I had a nickel for each time I hear “What are these?”, I’d buy Meijer.
- And their scanners too! – Oftentimes, their scanners don’t seem to work properly at the self-checkout. What makes things even worse is when their employees keep on saying they had this problem for a while now….well I KNOW!
What’s your take on Meijer’s stores? Have you ever noticed any of these things when you went shopping at Meijer’s? Are there any other stores that offer similar services? What’s your experience with grocery shopping in large stores? We’re very curious to find out your opinion, so don’t forget to write it down in the comments section!
