There's not even a Meijer location in Manhattan and I’m extremely intrigued by its new interactive MealBox widget. After writing about this new tech tool in November’s issue, I became a little obsessed. It’s a useful resource for meal planning even if you’re miles away from a brick-and-mortar location. And it gives consumers a way to make online grocery lists, swap recipes, and get coupons. Meijer also has a new iPhone application for it so consumers can consult the tool while shopping in a store. This is one one of the first times a grocery shopping experience on the iPhone has been linked to a store. It's too bad Meijer isn't here in Manhattan, my MealBox widget is all ready to go.
