Kroger rumored to be exploring an alliance with Alibaba — the Chinese e-commerce giant. Alibaba operates grocery stores with automatic checkout like Amazon Go.

Earlier this month: Kroger was going after Boxed.com
Then last week it was Overstock.com

Now Alibaba?

What will it be next week?

And what happened to selling off the c-stores?

Kroger seems to have lost its sense of direction.

It has put remodels and new build stores on hold, it's courting any and every online retailer that isn't Amazon, and it seems to have lost focus on its core operation.
