How Do YOU Pronounce The Name Of This Store?

If look at this store and pronounce is with a non-existant “s” at the end, you’re not alone.

I myself admit to calling it “Meijer’s”. And not just “Meijer’s”, I also say Kroger’s, and JC Penney’s. According to Michigan Native, Michiganders referring to “company names as possessive” dates back to the early days of Ford Motor Company, when people said “I work at Ford’s”, as in Henry Ford’s company.

Meijer was actually named Meijer’s at one point. Hendrik Meijer, founder of the company, founded it as “Meijer’s” at it’s inception. While that is according to Wikipedia, it makes sense, because a person named Meijer actually owned the store. Hence, Meijer’s.

Do you call it Meijer’s? Or do you just leave it as is? Let me know on Facebook or in the comments below!
