A retailer has fired some employees who shared a couple's photo-card order.

A Meijer spokesperson declined to say how many workers were fired at its Plainwell store.

But the company said its photo department workers "are required to adhere to a strict confidentiality policy."

The Plainwell couple said the incident ruined their big surprise.

Twenty-three-year-old Jordan Areaux told WWMT TV she brought photos to the store for printing into a Christmas card, announcing she's pregnant with "the first grandbaby in our family."

Areaux said she was angry when she received a text with a screenshot of her planned announcement.

She said she went to high school with some of the photo lab workers, who took photos of her photos and began texting them around.
