I always shop at Kroger's - they are less than a mile from my house. What I love most is the great clearance sales at the end of holidays or seasons, all the stuff is marked down, up to 90% off. Also, their milk is the best price around.

The crazy cashier who always whines about her carpal tunnel on Madison Road in Covington, KY.

mail4rosey said...

I love the cheese selection! My husband loves that they carry Grolsch Beer because it's hard to find in our area. And everyone in our house thinks the taste of Kroger meat is superior to other area grocers.

Thank you.

I love that our krogers gives us 5 pts for each reusable bag that we bring with us. This adds our gas pts up really quick so we can get 10 cents off a gallon of gas.

I love thier sales and getting the bonus off on gas really helps.

I love the convenience that my local Fred Meyer (Kroger affiliate) store is only 2 blocks away. I can either walk or drive to the store and get what I need with their great selection and low priced groceries once I plan out my meals for the day or week.

1993wel said...

I love that our Fred Meyer's (Kroger affiliate) has a large natural/organic foods section with lots of bulk item bins. I can always find healthy, good-tasting food at a great price! I love to grind my own almond butter and stock up on steel cut oats and polenta.

heaventrees said...

What I love about my local Kroger is how easy it is to find what you want and need. Sometimes it seems like a scavenger hunt in some other stores.

Pamela said...

I love Kroger for SO MANY reasons. Last week I actually tried a different grocery store and was SO disappointed I actually left my basket and headed straight over to Kroger.

I know where everything is, my coupons are orgaized to their aisles, and I just love the deals!
