Coming home from work tonight I stopped at one of the newer Meijer stores (Kzoo and 60th) and was reminded of how much I like having Meijer around. Other than that crazy aberration on 28th and Kalamazoo, these stores are just about the nicest grocery stores I’ve ever been in (Whole Foods in Denver is the only one I can think of that might top it). I like the way the stores are laid out. I like the different mingling food smells. I like the lighting and temperature. I really like that they have started catering more to organic/natural food eaters.

Anyway, really I’m writing all this just to have an excuse to write about the TVs in the checkout aisles at this particular store. They now have little TVs mounted above the conveyor belt to keep you occupied while you wait! Hurray America! Tonight’s feature seemed to be some sort of documentary about one of the actors on Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t know how I feel about this new development yet. I guess it at least shows that Meijer is still putting forth some effort to keep its customers happy.

I won’t be satisfied until they have moving sidewalks on every aisle though. I didn’t drive all the way to the store just to have to walk around with my legs.
