Saturday was a lucky day for some folks who visited their local Meijer to do their Christmas shopping.

The retailer gave 213 unsuspecting customers a HUGE surprise at the checkout: their entire shopping carts filled with gifts and groceries were given to them free!

In what store has called a Very Merry Meijer event, one customer at each of their stores across the Midwest was randomly selected on Dec. 13 to receive their entire order for free.

This is the first time that the stores have done this type of holiday giveaway.

Meijer Co-Chairman Hank Meijer said in a statement:

The holidays are a time for kindness and joy, and the Very Merry Meijer event was a perfect opportunity for us to share the spirit of the season with those we hold dear: our customers. Our family has always believed that our customers don’t need us, but that we need them. That philosophy still guides us today. We are very thankful for our customers, and wanted to find a special way to wish them a very Merry Christmas."

Folks were aware that something was up after one shopper from Ohio posted the following on Facebook on Saturday. That post as been shared more than 20,000 times.
