Story by Joe Hirschmugl
Meijer found a great way to set a merry tone at stores across the Midwest this holiday season.
The Midwestern retailer welcomed students from more than 100 local schools to carol and perform everyone’s favorite holiday music. There were singers, marching bands, jazz bands and string sections all adding some pep to everyone’s step.
Stores featured hour-long performances in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin.
