Kroger History

Kroger was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1883 by Bernard Kroger who invested his life savings to open a grocery store in the Mount Airy neighborhood of Cincinnati.

In the 1930s, Kroger was the first grocery to monitor product quality and first to have a store surrounded on all sides by a parking lot.

In 1955, Kroger acquired Henke & Pillot.

In the 1970s, Kroger was the first chain to introduce electronic checkout scanners.

In 1983, Kroger acquired the Dillon Companies, a Kansas grocery chain.  David Dillion is the current CEO of Kroger.

Many other acquisitions followed in recent years including Pay Less Food Markets, Hilander Foods and  Scott’s Food & Pharmacy.

In 1997, the company merged with Fred Meyer.

Today, the company operates over 3500 stores.  The Kroger corporate office is still located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I am a long time customer of Kroger’s in Ohio. I shop for home and 4 culinary classes every week. I am a teaching chef for Dietetics. Why have you gone to extremely thin plastic bags. Every time I shop at Kroger’s at least two of the bags break and I am chasing product all over the parking lot or in the drive way. I do not have that problem with other stores that I frequent. Do you still have paper bags? Are they any sturdier than your cheap plastic bags.

Kroger needs to remove the stupid gift cards display in front of Customer service. I can’t get up to the counter with it there and also other people can’t get up there because it is in the way. Need to have more than 1 person working in customer service. I am using an electric cart and it’s impossible to get close to the counter. Also they remodeled the store and it’s hard to pay your bill at the register because there is not enough room to
get around the candy counter and checkout stand. Employees also need to plug in electric carts to charge. One time aall 13 carts weren’ charged.

I can’t believe that a Manager at Kroger can decide whether he wants to honor an item in the circular which also involved adding th mobile coupon to yoi Kroger plus card. The price that was ringing up at the register was wrong and didm’t reflect the price in the circular ir the mobile coupon. The cashiet, head cashier, and Manager were sll extremely rude. I guess they never heard the customer is always right, and this vase I was right becsuse the cirvular anf mobile coupon reflected the pricd5 but the register was ringing up the wrong price. I guess they. never were instructed in how to treat customers. Kroger customer service also backs the Manager. Why have a circular or mobile coupons if you don’t want to honor them.

Kroger: It is still August. How dare you put out Halloween jack-o-lanterns. Let me enjoy the summer before you start pushing for a holiday two months from now.
