Meijer offers half off turkeys

GRAND RAPIDS – Meijer is helping area families serve up a traditional Thanksgiving meal again this year with discounts offered on turkeys.

“A Thanksgiving meal isn’t complete without the turkey, and with these great prices, Meijer wants to ensure that our customers can provide their families with the best holiday experience,” said Jerry Suter, vice president of fresh merchandising. “Not only is Meijer able to deliver a delicious meal to our customers, but we’re able to do so at a tremendous value.”

When a Meijer customer spends $20, their purchase of any fresh or frozen turkey – regardless of brand or size – will be 50 percent off. The discount is going on through Thanksgiving Day.

That means Meijer brand frozen turkeys will be priced at 54 cents per pound, and Meijer brand fresh turkeys will cost 98 cents per pound.

Meijer offers more than a dozen varieties of the holiday bird in varying sizes, ensuring there is something for everyone. Last year, the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer sold 700,000 turkeys.

Meijer is once again preparing for high sales of pre-made Thanksgiving dinners for those who want the traditional holiday meal without the time spent in the kitchen.

Customer demand for pre-made meals at Thanksgiving is a trend that has been growing for the last several years for individuals looking for convenience or as a great gifting solution by companies, clubs and organizations.

A deluxe turkey dinner costs $49.99 and includes a 10-12 pound cooked turkey, home-style stuffing, roasted turkey gravy, cranberry walnut relish, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.

A deluxe ham dinner costs $49.99 and includes a 7-9 pound spiral ham, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, roasted turkey gravy and cranberry salad. Both deluxe dinners can feed between 8-10 people.

While Meijer will work to accommodate any customer request, deli team members encourage customers to place orders for those dinners 24 hours in advance to ensure availability.
