GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Meijer is making holiday shopping easier for customers by offering aggressive Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday doorbuster deals on popular brands all day long while supplies last. The announcement was made today by J.K. Symancyk, Chief Operating Officer for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer.
"Holiday shopping can be very stressful, so Meijer is focused on making the experience easier for our customers," said Symancyk. "By offering our special deals beginning at 6 a.m. on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday, our customers won't have to worry about waking up in the middle of the night to stand in line and can choose how early or late they want to shop for the hottest holiday gifts."
Links to the Meijer Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day ad previews will be sent Friday to customers who currently receive e-mail alerts from Meijer, as well as the more than 860,000 Meijer Facebook likes and Twitter followers.
