Having only lived in the Chicago area for a few months, I had not had the opportunity to step foot into a Meijer, and honestly, I had no idea what Meijer was like until now!
Meijer is a Grand Rapids, Michigan based retailer that operates 199 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. As the pioneer of the “one-stop shopping” concept.
My experience at Meijer was great! It has everything you need from your groceries, toys, movies, personal items and the selection is fantastic. Before I ventured to Meijer, I wanted to have a good idea of what I wanted to buy. I visited their site and checked out their fun Gift Finder. What a great feature to their site! It made my Christmas shopping super easy and saved me a lot of time searching for gifts for my family.
The Gift Finder starts with a few questions such as, Who's on my list? What do they like? What's my budget? Their gift guide is so easy to use, and a complete time saver!
Meijer really has EVERYTHING, so it was hard to choose who I wanted to focus on during this trip. After looking through their gift finder, I decided to purchase a couple of things for my husband. I found that they had all the name brand products and at great prices.
Two of my husbands passions are sports and cooking! They had a large selection of sports gear, so I was able to pick up some golf balls for him. I love to find a good deal, so while I was shopping around I noticed that the entire store was on sale-- Perfect! They also had Santa Bucks which is money off your purchase when you spend specific amounts. I received $8 off my order!
After I searched the sports isles I wandered over to their kitchen section. I was amazed at how much they had in just their utensil and gadget section! I was able to pick up some new tongs for him too, which is something he has wanted for a while now.
I was very pleased with the items I was able to purchase from Meijer. The store was clean and organized which is something that is important to me when I shop, especially when my kids are with me! As you'll notice in the photo above, I also bought some Activity Flash Cards. I was done my shopping, but got distracted in the book isle!
I couldn't help but browse their other sections and found that they had a large home decor area which was hard to leave!
As I mentioned earlier, they really have some great brands, including one of my favorites, Skip Hop! I was very tempted to get these owl back packs for my girls.
If you are like me and have never been to Meijer, than you'll have to check it out. I am now a huge Meijer Fan! They have high quality products and of course great sales and price drops.
