(WXYZ) — Meijer has expanded its "shop and scan" program to the Detroit-area and it is now available in all 246 stores throughout the Midwest.
The program works through the Meijer Mobile App and allows customers to shop, scan the products and bag them as they go. It helps them avoid lines and personalize their shopping visit.
Once you download the app, you can use shop & scan to scan bar codes on items and bag groceries. A running total of items can be seen as they shop throughout the store, and when they're done, they scan their phone at self-checkout and pay.
“As we’ve rolled the program out in six states, the response has been incredibly enthusiastic,” said Stephanie Brackenridge, Director of Customer Experience for Meijer. “Customers have appreciated the ability to have a choice in shopping how they want, depending on how their day is going. Many are finding the opportunity to personalize their store visit with a cell phone is a great way to save time and help avoid lines.”
For those who don't want to go to the store, Meijer does offer home delivery and pick-up options in all 246 stores, including the ones in Michigan.
