Michigander’s 10 Commandments For Shopping At Meijer
As Michiganders one of the first stores we are introduced to is Meijer, it's OUR version of what a grocery store should be, and we hold it near and dear to our hearts. We aren't necessarily gatekeepers, but we do take trips to Meijer and the slander against it very seriously.
Just like many other places and things in the world, there are no clear-cut rules to shopping at the grocery store that were created in Michigan, but that doesn't mean that some things are just a no-no. These things that will be mentioned can be considered the unspoken but mandatory 10 commandments of shopping at Meijer.
When thinking about going grocery shopping all of the horror stories come rushing to your mind like getting stuck waiting in long lines because there are only a few cashiers working, the item you're looking for being out of stock, or just getting dragged to the grocery store on a Saturday morning.
Now, a trip to the grocery store isn't always bad because you get to see the new snacks and food items that come out, it's some time out away from the house and in public, and don't even get me started on the immaculate level of people watching you get to take in. Grocery store trips have become nothing short of insane and for the most part, are rewarding.
Whether you've been to Meijer a thousand times over or you've never shopped there before in your life, you better know the unspoken rules, or you'll quickly be outed. The looks and judgment you'd receive for not being a true Meijer shopper are unreal. So, here are the 10 commandments to shopping at Meijer.
