Meijer, Inc. Complaint - Self Serve Only!
LANSING, MICHIGAN -- This happened at the Lake Lansing store in Lansing MI, 7:05AM. I went in for a highlighter (marker) at a cost of $1.00. After finding it I decided to pick up a few other items, mostly grocery. The total bill would have been easily over $100. I walk down the checkouts to find a clerk. Self serve only! Well that's a problem for me. By using these lines we eliminate jobs.
After checking again I self scanned the marker I came in for and left everything else. I talked to a worked and asked him to inform his manager that they just lost a larger sale with the additional cost of putting the items back on the shelves or cooler. The explanation was that a worker was on break.
Meijer is so corporate they would love to get rid of as many employees as possible by using a gas station model. Service is not important to them and their workers are miserable. To bad their Union hasn't been able to help them out over the years. Maybe we shoppers can!
