Currently, most Meijer stores are open from 6 am until midnight, seven days per week. Meijer still offers special store hours for those with health conditions to shop during the coronavirus outbreak. Seniors and those with medical conditions can shop at Meijer on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 am until 8 am. Mondays and Wednesdays are reserved for essential workers including medical staff, first responders, and law enforcement along with Meijer staff from 6 am until 8 am.

Back when this all started, Meijer was my preferred place to shop. I was always able to get what I was looking for even when everyone was freaking out and panic buying everything. I do miss their overnight hours though. The bottle return lines have been out of control and I am just going to wait until I can go in late at night when the crowds aren't there.
