Meijer Stocked With Turkeys For Customers Ahead Of Holiday

Meijer

Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Meijer is stocked and ready with traditional turkeys, as well as non-traditional entrees in preparation for the upcoming holiday season.

The Midwest retailer has a wide selection of “competitively priced turkeys” but encourages people not to wait too long to make their purchase as they are first-come, first-served. 

Customers can purchase Meijer brand frozen turkeys for 55 cents per pound through Nov. 26. Meijer brand fresh turkeys cost 99 cents per pound and Butterball fresh turkeys come in at $2.29 per pound. Fresh turkeys will arrive in stores starting Nov. 13. There is a limit of two per customer on all fresh and frozen turkeys.

“We feel confident in our inventory of turkey and are excited to offer that Thanksgiving staple for family gatherings across the Midwest,” said Josh Potts, Meijer poultry buyer. “Our highest priority is bringing value and quality to our customers this holiday season.”

Additionally, Meijer is prepared for the trend of serving a secondary protein dish at the holiday table, with a large inventory of hams, prime rib roasts and New York strip roasts. In response to increasing demand, it expects to sell 50,000 roasts and more than 1 million pounds of hams this Thanksgiving.

“We expect to sell more hams than any Thanksgiving before,” said Ben Lesneski, Meijer meat buyer. “We know our customers’ tastes are always evolving. We’re happy to have the options for our turkey purists, as well as those who seek different savory options in their Thanksgiving spread.” 

For those who prefer a plant-based protein, Meijer has “tofurky,” or tofu turkey, options and expects to sell nearly 10,000 pounds of the soy-based protein the week of Thanksgiving.

Meijer also offers a deluxe turkey dinner for $59.99, which includes a 10- to 12-pound pre-baked Butterball turkey, home-style stuffing, roasted turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry relish and a dozen King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. The deluxe dinner can feed six to eight people.

Customers can order the dinners by Nov. 22 at a Meijer deli counter or by calling 1-866-518-4293. While Meijer will work to accommodate any customer request, the retailer encourages customers to place orders for premade dinners as soon as possible, as limited quantities are available per store.

Meijer operates 499 supercenters, neighborhood markets and express locations throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin. A privately-owned and family-operated company since 1934, Meijer has evolved through the years to include expanded fresh produce and meat departments, as well as pharmacies, comprehensive apparel departments, pet departments, garden centers, toys and electronics.
