Meijer Offers Shoppers Numerous Options on Black Friday
Retailer announces more savings and all-day deals to reduce holiday stress
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas means customers will find even more ways to maximize their savings at Meijer during Black Friday weekend, said Peter Whitsett, executive vice president of Merchandising and Marketing for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer.
