  1. No wonder on the 2nd day lots of Meijer near me either ran out of the best buy cards, or took them out of the shelves by the manager. What’s left was only $25 denominations.

      • Greater Detroit. My friends in Ann Arbor and Lansing encountered this in quite a few stores (>50% stores in their area on the second day, first day seemed normal).

        • When things get back to normal I have a monthly meetup at 13 and Telegraph. We also have been occasionally meeting at the park and just setting up chairs all spaced out in a circle. If you are interested shoot me an email ( and I can get you more info.
