Meijer Expects to Lead the Midwest with Lowest Price per Pound on Turkeys
Meijer is once again announcing aggressive pricing on Thanksgiving turkeys that are expected to lead the Midwest in low price.
When a Meijer customer spends $30, Meijer brand frozen turkeys are 48 cents per pound now through Nov. 25. The result: a 10-pound turkey will only cost $4.80*. The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer is even introducing its first ever antibiotic free, vegetarian fed True Goodness fresh turkey.
Thanksgiving Day is one of the retailer’s busiest grocery shopping days of the year with customers often forgetting an item or two for their Thanksgiving feasts. The top five items sold at Meijer on Thanksgiving Day include:
- Cream cheese
- Cream of mushroom soup
- Sweet potatoes
For customers who’ve forgotten a turkey, Meijer will offer a frozen turkey that cooks in a bag in as little as 2.5 hours. Customers don’t have to worry about thawing or cleaning this turkey that’s seasoned with sea salt.
Meijer Home Delivery will also be an option for customers who want the convenience of having those forgotten meal essentials delivered to their doors.
Meijer is also preparing for high sales of its ever-popular premade Thanksgiving dinners.
Meijer offers a deluxe turkey dinner for $49.99, which includes a 10- to 12-pound prebaked Butterball turkey, home-style stuffing, roasted turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and a dozen King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. A deluxe ham dinner costs $49.99, and includes a 7- to 9-pound spiral ham, home-style stuffing, roasted turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and a dozen King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. Both deluxe dinners can feed between 8-10 people.
While Meijer will work to accommodate any customer request, deli team members request customers place orders for those premade dinners by Nov. 22. Limited quantities are available per store.
