Meijers Complaint - Auto batteries and milk
WARREN, MICHIGAN -- I purchased a car battery late on a Saturday night. My son came out of work and someone stole his right out of his car. Of course Meijers is the only place open at midnight to buy such a product. I went there. I found a good deal or so I thought on a battery. After beign run up at the register I found I was charged an estra 8 dollars on the bill. I was told it was for the exchange. What exchange? I wasn't exchanging one. Then I was told it was like a core charge and I had to pay it in advance to bring the other one back. I told the cashier I dint have one to bring back and explained why. I was then told to just go to the service desk and explain it to them and they could help me. I was tired and it was now going on 12:30 at night and I get up at five am and my son was stranded all alone in a parking lot. I ended up going back the next day. I was told this was store policy. How can they charge you for something you are not going to even return. I was then told just bring in another one. Sure everyone has a old extra dead battery laying around.
That night I also grabbed a gallon of milk. Opened it up the next morning to have with my coffee to only find it spoiled. I also took the gallon of milk back with me. To only be told how did they know I didn't leave it out all night to get spoiled? After really getting mad now due to the battery and now the milk. I finally got a different gallon of milk.
I am new to shopping at Meijers as this one just opened up on mound and 13 mile in warren. Im new to the neighboorhood and it seemed nice and close.
I also ended up returning the battery for a full refund and a explaination of why I was returning it. Its not fair meijers was going to make a 8;00 profit off of me.
I went someplace else and purchased one for even cheaper. No charge for a mystery battery to bring back. I was told you were only charged this if you did bring one back for them to get fid of it for you.
Will never shop at Meijers again. So much for that credit card,,, sent it back to them with complaints and explainations. No response from them either.
