Meijer has launched Iphone applications for both their MealBox program and their WineList, this is a particularly innovative move for the retailer trying to compete compete with grocers and big boxes alike. The only real question is why charge $1.99 for this app. A a Iphone owner I personally own the Stanley Level and Zippo Lighter apps, both of which were FREE. Would you pay for this one?
