Apparently Meijer, Inc. corporate has decided to omit all manned express lanes in their stores.

They wish to force shoppers to use the self-serve lanes or stand in long lines behind shoppers with a cart full of items. This is their idea of "customer service" for their valued guests!! After all these years of being a loyal customer, they turned on us. Time to shop at WalMart or Kroger.

Both of their competitors are much closer to us than Meijer, but we have gotten to know most of the Meijer employees over the years and much preferred them to the WalMart people. Now that it is clear Meijer has the same attitude toward "guests" as WalMart, we might as well just go to WalMart.

I THINK THIS A GOOD IDEA. MOSTLY BECAUSE PEOPLE DO NOT OBSERVE THE LIMITATION ON ITEMS IN QUANTITY TO CHECK OUT.

If the express lane says 10 items.....they bring 15......and expect people to wait till they get though.......Meijer is being smart. Anyone can self check out with 5 items quicker than getting in an 'express' line.

Complain to corporate. Not this website. You won't get anywhere otherwise.

Self-scans are more efficient and without them, lines would clearly be too long. The 12 items or less serve more than 1000 customers per terminal on a daily basis and there is still an attendant to help everyone.

You can check out much faster with these, and if it wasn't for self-scans, prices would be higher, so NO discount is deserved. If anything, people who don't self-scan should be charged extra.

People who don't self scan shouldn't be charged extra. That's ridiculous.

And majority of people who try to use the self scan really shouldn't because they don't know what they're doing. And many "couponers" use them to try weasel their fraud coupons through the system.

And many people can steal on them. Meijer should have only 6 12 item or less self scans and the rest lanes with baggers as well as cashiers.

Personally, I think that if I use the self checkout I should get a discount because I'm doing the work of the cashier and saving them money.

Omg. Your comment screams entitlement.

You don't deserve anything for "doing the work" of a cashier. You don't know half of what they do let alone what they put up with.

And you chose to go there. So no, you don't deserve anything for that.

Kroger actually uses low items lanes They also bag your groceries. They also keep more than one lane open. I really don't see Meier having a future for various reasons

sometimes they dont have enough employees for the day to run the express lane..... there are more guests with big orders than small and we need more full lanes open

Unfortunately meijer won't give their employees enough hours or enough people to have sufficient lanes open.
