Re: What exactly happened with Kroger?

Also notice much longer lines and less cashiers.

Re: What is happening at Marianos?

New Marianos uniforms are unprofessional at best. Instead of wearing super professional black slacks and white shirts and classy sweaters, Marianos employees can now wear street clothes such as a polo shirt or flannel and jeans and tennis shoes.

Re: Fred Meyer and Harris Teeter Kroger phones?

So how about Harris Teeter getting Kroger’s typical new Cisco 7800 IP phones both in departments and at the checkout lanes and Harris Teeter can lose those old antiquated gooseneck microphones at each checkout?

Re: Target Dance Music

I was in a rather large Target on Elston Avenue in Chicago recently and they now have the music with various ceiling systems throughout the store. The large column mounted PA loud speakers have been removed. Much like 90 percent of the rest of North American retail they appear to have removed the mi...

Fred Meyer and Harris Teeter Kroger phones?

Has Fred Meyer replaced the ROLM telephone systems with the standard Kroger Cisco IP platform?
