Meijer does not cash checks, customer service representatives said.
We contacted Meijer locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin to find out about Meijer’s check cashing policy. All of the Meijer representatives we spoke to said the grocery store chain does not cash checks.
Some Meijer locations (about 60% of those we contacted) have bank branches inside the store — located near the front entrance. Branches inside Meijer stores are operated by the banks themselves, so check cashing policies will vary by bank.
We identified several Meijer stores in Michigan that have Huntington Bank branches inside the store. We also found Meijer stores in Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin with U.S. Bank branches located inside.
A Huntington Bank representative told us that non-accountholders could cash checks for a $10 fee as long as they show a valid photo ID; see our related research for details on U.S. Bank’s check cashing policy.
Other local banks and credit unions also operate inside some Meijer stores, a Meijer customer service representative said. To find out if your local Meijer has a bank inside — and which bank or credit union operates the branch — use the Meijer store locator. (The location’s store page will list the bank under Store Services.)
Other grocery stores that cash checks include Kroger and Walmart. See our full list of grocery stores that cash checks. We also have the list of banks that will cash checks for non-accountholders.
