History of Sandy

Sandy, the iconic mechanical pony, debuted at the opening of Thrifty Acres in 1962 and has since become a fixture at the front of all Meijer stores across the Midwest. The price of one penny per ride is symbolic of the affordable shopping experience at Meijer and is a highlight of many families' visits. Sandy is often the last thing a child remembers on the way out of the store and a source of joy for shoppers of all ages. Check out our commercial featuring Sandy here: http://bit.ly/1n9YeKW
