Read Thrifty Years

I was read an entertaining biography of Hendrik Meijer, the founder of Meijer! It was pretty interesting and had some funny humor to it. Hendrik seems pretty awesome. For instance, he sold 8 cents a quart of milk and 15 cents for two. His competitors didn't like that, since they sold it for 8 cents for each quart and threatened to take Hendrik's sign down if he didn't raise the price. Instead, Hendrik kept the price the same and took down his own sign! Ha! It was a good read! (And Canton's Meijer store was mentioned!)
