Meijers only has stores in: Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Indiana. boohoo rspb rspb

Luckily I have a brother living in Michigan. lol

Unluckily the bars are $1.29 a piece or something....a real rip off when you compare to how much they are in England. But still worth it!

I just spoke to my sister--and it is just as i thought--right off of Rt. 4

yes, I like the idea of Rt 4 better than all the zig zagging there would be if I took 55
