Meijer, Inc. Complaint - Never Enough Cashiers
BOLINGBROOK, ILLINOIS -- We purposely shop on weekdays, and late mornings, so we can beat the rush. What's the point? Meijer never has more than one or two lanes open for checkout, besides their self-checkout aisles (which are another nightmare, altogether) Today we found one lane with four ladies in line, so we went to the second one, with one man in it. He had a problem, his power washer scanned at $119.instead of $69.
I don't blame him, THAT's a BIG difference. However, we had all our groceries unloaded, and had to wait another 10 minutes, while our food melted. Finally my husband complained, and they moved the man to customer service, and proceeded to check us out. When we left, with our $160. purchase, they were just finishing up with the overcharged customer. We would have been stuck there, another 10 minutes or so, had we not said anything. This kind of thing happens to us all the time at this store.
There are lots of cars in the parking lot, and the store has business, but no one mans the registers. Also, my husband had to wait his turn at the deli, while 4 employees bought their lunch fixings. Again, there was only one person helping at the deli counter, so he got mad, and almost walked away. We shop there twice a week, for major supplies, and a few more times for extras. Today, my husband swore he will drive the extra 2 miles to Jewel, instead, and refuses to go back to Meijer's.
