GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Meijer is paying attention to its customers' bottom line this holiday shopping season by slashing prices on more than 350 popular products in its toy department. The Price Drop program was announced today by David Stickney, merchandise manager for toys at Meijer.
"A tough economic climate is continuing to make shoppers pare down their holiday lists," said Stickney. "Meijer's goal is to help our customers save money while still enjoying the tradition of gift giving during the holidays."
The price reductions are another wave of the retailer's ongoing Price Drop program, where thousands of unadvertised items – ranging from health & beauty products to clothing – are reduced in price every day.
The Toy Price Drop program includes virtually every toy category, with discounts up to 50% off Meijer's normal low prices on some of the hottest items, including everything from BARBIE and DISNEY PRINCESS DOLLS to TRANSFORMERS and TOY STORY 3 toys. Other reduced-price items include toys from such popular brands as FISHER PRICE, NERF, HASBRO and MATTEL. Meijer is also offering the popular Webkinz Plush Toys for $7, a 30% price reduction from the original price of $9.99.
Some of Meijer's toy price drops include:
Hot Wheels Crash Course Starter Playset: Reg. $19.99, now $14.00
