Re: What exactly happened with Kroger?

Fresh Eats Market got the plug pulled on them . The article also mentions the newish College Station convenience store also got sold off, which is surprising as the last time I remember it (surely sometime in the last year), it still had all the Kroger branded goods (including chilled bottled water...

In regards to the topic "What exactly happened with Kroger?" IMO it all started December 31st, 2014. That's the date David Dillon retired as Chairman of Kroger. The company has been directionless since.
Came here to say Rodney McMullen, but you took the words out of my mouth.

Re: Two Harris Teeters in Charlotte closing (one temporary, one permanent)

2201 W T Harris Boulevard is odd looking for a retail store. From the outside you would think it's just a Harris Teeter corporate office, and not an actual supermarket. Most stores will have some big facade that's easily identifiable, and draws people in. It is very weird looking. Almost looks like...

Two Harris Teeters in Charlotte closing (one temporary, one permanent)

According to the Business Journal, Harris Teeter will be temporarily closing their store at the 4101 Park Road (Park Road shopping center) for a remodel effective January 2020. Though the exterior received cosmetic updates in recent years, the store still had 1980s decor in a couple of places. Anoth...

Re: Changes at Kroger?

I seen the Reddit post. Anyway, I personally don’t know how to feel about this but I think Rodney McMullen has made too many missteps (Restock Kroger) and should be let go himself. A couple of people mentioned that Mid-Atlantic (my old division) lost a lot of management positions, themselves. That’s...

It has finally arrived: Raleigh, NC Wegmans location opens

Interesting tidbits: - Apparently this store marks a milestone for Wegmans: they are now at 100 stores even - Per various news sources, over 3,000 people waited in line at the grand opening - This store comes in at 105,000 square feet, which is a little small compared to other stores opened within t...

Re: Kroger and creepy PA Announcements

Also, I am glad I have not experienced the self checkout ending with a song at Smiths or Fred Meyer. That sounds very creepy. Imagine the self check attendant hearing that hundreds of times in a shift. Yikes... Why are they concentrating on crap like that when they don't even have NFC working on th...
