Meijer is helping students all over Michigan and the Midwest get ready for college, with "Shopping Parties" at dozens of universities.

According to MLive, Meijer likes to host these in-store shopping parties, or "Meijer Mania" as they call it, to welcome the over 42,000 incoming college freshmen with a in-store DJ, games, photo booth, and so much more. Meijer also provides samples and coupons, and occasionally hosts big-ticket giveaways.
