Melissa Tinkham one of 8 Meijer team members from throughout the company to be recognized
Meijer announced today the winners of its 2021 Legacy Awards, the highest recognitions a Meijer team member can receive. One of the recipients is Melissa Tinkham, Customer Service and General Merchandise Line Leader at the Fremont Meijer.
“Our team members make everything our customers see in our stores possible,” Executive Chairman Hank Meijer said. “These awards honor team members throughout the company who are leaving a legacy on their teams and communities. We’re proud to have them.”
The press release from Meijer stated:
“Despite the challenges of retail in the last year, Melissa is known for going above and beyond for her customers, even calling them to let them know when a product is back in stock. She has a deep knowledge of the Fremont community that inspired her to advocate to expand the store’s inventory of crafts products to support the high demand from local craft shows. A crafter herself, she’s known for coming up with creative prizes like homemade lamps to motivate and inspire her team.”
“This year’s President’s Award winners exemplify the reason we began the Legacy Awards tradition – they reflect the wide impact our team members are making on our business and in our communities,” said Rick Keyes, President & CEO of Meijer. “Looking at the breadth of their accomplishments reminds us that an individual can always make a difference.”
