Meijer is a regional chain of big box / department stores in the United States midwest. They have stores in Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Kentucky. It has a similar concept to WalMart stores, but Meijer focuses more on quality and less on price than WalMart does.

The big news here is, Meijer will eliminate their plus size women's department, combining all sizes they carry into a single clothing department offering sizes from S to 3XL. In addition to that, they will eliminate the price premium on plus size clothing, so every item is at the same price point regardless of size. Revolutionary, isn't it?

Sounds like a good idea. Hopefully it will be a big improvement over the usual tiny plus size department hidden in some underutilized corner.

Wow, that means that every style/fashion will be in every size. Pretty amazing.

Maybe they finally figured out that most people don't fall in the 0-12 sizes. I bet they did make a bunch of money. Good for them.

I actually looked at our local Meijer store. I HATE this.

It used to be that I knew exactly where the stuff in my size was located. Now I have to dig through a rack containing 30 identical shirts to try to find one in my size.

This has not been a very well-received change.

Meijer never had much of anything actually fit me except bras and panties sometimes.
They do move things around a lot so I just don't shop there because its too much walking trying to find what I need.
