Anyone that likes Kroger can post how they feel about the chain here. I prefer other stores, but they dominate our area for the most part, besides Wal-Mart and to local chains called Foodland, and Foodfair. We used to have Big Bear but Penn Traffic closed the Big Bear Stores as apart of a Chapter11 reorganization.

oh.. ok.. mybad dude.  To answer your question...  they have stores all over the US, but they operate under different names. Krogers operates Krogers mostly on the east coast, Mid atlantic region. I hope that helps, i know it's rather broad.. but i hope this helps!

Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. They operate stores, such as: Fry's, Kings Soopers, Ralphs, Dillons, Baker's, Hilander, and many others. Krogers is the third largest retailer in the US today.

I love Kroger.  I wish we had them in Evansville.  Instead we have Wal-Mart Hometown Markets, Schnucks--a pricey St. Louis MO based grocer, and Buy-Low--a somewhat local chain that is quickly growing out of Jasper Indiana.  In fact, they just bought out several of the Wynn-Dixie stores in Louisville KY.

Our Kroger supermarket has a gas station.

There's a Kroger at Graceland shopping center in Columbus that looks like what Harts & Big Bear used to be like.  They call it, Kroger MarketPlace.  The place at Columbus is the first of these stores for Kroger.

Well, I live in Krogerland. The one down the road from me closed and became a Stein Mart (what an unpleasant surprise). It was replaced by a bigger, freshly built one across the street. I actually started streaming tears when I saw the old one as Stein Mart!  I had grown up with it! Literally, tears were pouring down my face!:no::(

Kroger has been in Norton, Virginia two different times. First back in the 50 & 60's it was located down town where First Union Bank is now located. It closed in the 60's an A&P took over the building. It then came back in 1979 when the Norton Square shopping center opend, it was also anchored with Magic Mart. Krogers stay open until about 1986 when it closed. They had an aweomse deli. You could always smell the fresh bread baking. After Krogers closed the building became a Pay Less Supermarket, it closed around 1990 and then they building became a Food Lion. Food Lion completed remolded the store moving the enterance of the building from the side of the building to the center. Food Lion closed about 1998. About 1999 the building became a Sav o Lot and about a couple of months ago Norton Community Hosptial has bought the shopping center. NCH said they would honor the leases of the business but Sav o Lot's will run out at the end of the year. Sav o lot is plainging to move to Wise, Va about 3 miles away to part of the former Food Lion which has been spilt with Tractor Supply.

Here's the way it looked before Kroger's moved about 3miles down the road to a store they bought out. I love these style Krogers. The one is Norton, Virginia looked just like this one. Kroger opened this store in 1977. It is 26,000 sq. ft located in the Kroger Plaza Madison West Virginia. It is now a supermarket I can't remember what the new name is but it is just like Kroger's on the inside.Kroger's bought out Black's FOODLAND and moved into their building. Black's then went and bought out the least on this building and now it's a
Food Land Fresh owned by Black's. Does anybody know the story on this please post it. This is a reallly odd story.

Former Krogers in Hazard Kentucky.Located in the
Town & Country Plaza Center, at the intersection of Highway 80 and 15. When the shopping center was built other anchors included kmart which is still open and CVS Pharmacy which is now closed also, I think a Dollar General is in the CVS. The buidling size 41,239 SF. Krogers closed 12/27/2005.
This was right after a super Wal Mart opened up in Hazard, I'am sure that had something to do with it.
