Meijer in the Community
Robert Dalgleish says bananas are high maintenance. Not only do they have their own “banana room” at the Meijer Distribution Facility in Lansing, he and his team check them twice a day based on size, color and temperature.
“We look at every shipment because we want the best available for our customers,” said the quality assurance supervisor who’s worked for Meijer for about 35 years. “Produce – that’s our signature department. It’s what our customers come back for. Our quality assurance team has pride in ownership for what we do. We strive day after day to make sure it’s the best produce we have.”
Dalgleish is among a handful of Meijer employees featured this year in TV commercials, called Quality is No Accident, that are running across the Midwest. They showcase what they do, their knowledge and the retailer’s standards and commitment to quality. His focuses on the quality of care and strict Meijer guidelines – that are more stringent than USDA standards – that goes into bananas. Meijer delivers about 6,000 cases of bananas to its stores daily, 7 days a week.
“You don’t think you’re shy until that camera goes on and they put it in your face,” he said. “But I like the campaign. I like the idea that we’re using team members to share our story and give some insight into what we do every day and why we do it.”

Scrutinizing the meat counter at the Indianapolis Meijer on Keystone Ave. to make sure it looks “pretty” is part of the daily grind for Tyrone Bray. He’s among a handful of Meijer employees featured this year in TV commercials across the Midwest that showcase what they do, their knowledge and the retailer’s standards and commitment to quality.
“It’s all about eye appeal. You want the steaks to be hollering at the customers. You want them to look pretty,” said the certified butcher who’s worked for Meijer for nearly 22 years. “It’s all about taking care of the customer and cutting our meat nice and fresh for them.”
Bray comes from a long line of butchers and takes pride in cutting dozens of cuts of meat – from pork tenderloins to T-bone steaks – and grinding hundreds of pounds of beef fresh daily for his customers.
The “Quality is No Accident” campaign highlights various departments within Meijer, including meat, produce, bakery, clothing and pharmacy. It’s the first time the retailer relied on team members instead of actors for its commercials. An internal casting session was held where team members submitted videos that were reviewed by the Meijer Marketing team. Once the team member talent was identified, they were filmed at various locations, including Meijer stores and a studio in California.
“It was a once in a lifetime experience,” he said. “It’s awesome to use employees for the commercials. It makes them feel good. People at work call me Mr. Hollywood.”
