As customers prepare to launch into holiday shopping mode, the Grand Rapids-based supercenter chain Meijer is making it easier for shoppers to plan their strategy by allowing customers to see holiday ads in advance.

The new advertising preview program includes the release of Meijer’s Black Friday ad, which will be available for customers to see online beginning this Friday, Nov. 12. Most other holiday ads will be available for preview three days before they are available to the public. Meijer’s ads for Thanksgiving Day and the Saturday and Sunday following Black Friday will be available for preview on Wednesday, Nov. 17.
