In the spirit of the holidays, Meijer surprised 235 unsuspecting customers by picking up the tab for their entire order.

The Michigan-based retailer calls it the 'Merry Meijer Event.'

“Christmas is the season that celebrates hope, joy and kindness, and we were so excited to bring back the Very Merry Meijer event for its fourth year to share the spirit of the season with those we hold dear: our customers and team members,” Executive Chairman Hank Meijer said. “We are very appreciative of our customers and team members, and wanted to find a special way to wish them a very Merry Christmas.”
