Meijer Mania

08.28.2011Tonight, my roommate Lauren and I went to Meijer for the UD Meijer Mania. It’s an even they host every year that includes a 10% back-to-school discount (if you bring the coupon) and a few sponsors give away free stuff. Last year seemed to be bigger than this year—we got a ton of free hair ties, Veet, and little goody bags with a dry-erase board for the fridge, candy, and some other random things. They also had a DJ playing music at the entrance, which was kind of amusing because some little kids were dancing. At one point “The Cupid Shuffle” was playing and a handful of people (adults and students included) were doing the dance at the front of the store. I’m not going to lie, it was a little bizarre. However, it was a fun little thing to go to and we got some coupons and free cookie molds. One down-side was that we forgot to use our 10% off coupon, which was kind of the point of going tonight. Luckily, it doesn’t expire until the beginning of October, so we’ll be able to go back and use it. I’m beginning to see a pattern though, because I’ve been to Meijer at least 3 times in the past week. I’m going to need to stop that. Or maybe I should just buy stock in Meijer…
