General Info:
In 1883, Barney Kroger, with only $372, opened a grocery store in downtown Cincinnati. More than 120 years later, as the supermarket business has evolved into a variety of formats aimed at satisfying the ever-changing needs of shoppers, Kroger has grown to over 2,500 stores in 31 states under two-dozen banners and annual sales of more than $66 billion. Today, Kroger ranks as one of the nation s largest retailers. Kroger has pioneered many innovations in the supermarket industry. During the 1930s, it was the first grocery chain to monitor product quality and test foods. In 1972, Kroger became the first grocery retailer in America to test an electronic scanner. It was installed in a store in suburban Cincinnati. Technology plays an important role in Kroger s store operations, with more than 1,600 Kroger stores offering self-checkout. Kroger spans many states with store formats that include grocery and multidepartment stores, convenience stores and mall jewelry stores. Among the brands it operates are Fred Meyer, Ralph s, Fry s, Baker s, Food4Less, KwikStop and Tom Thumb. Kroger is headquartered in Cincinnati, and maintains various locations in Houston.

ABC13'S Store?

Great store! It's a few hundred feet from our door, so those of us who work at channel 13 buy of lot of things there. Bakery, deli, salad bar, produce, sushi - all very good. We buy lots of plants and flowers there. The discount counter is great and the seasonal savings is terriffic as they make down their goods up to 50% off and usually handle only quality merchandise. We just bought a nice patio furniture set for $ 200, marked down from $ 400, that was much nicer
than the ones
...view more on clearance at Home Depot that cost $ 600! After Christmas sales are super and their wine selection is outstanding for a grocery store. We have bought a lot of kitchen accessories, plates, etc; over the years the store opened. I'm a big fan of their manager's specials in the meat section. They are always meat nearing expiration date, just like most supermarkets these days. The difference is that because it's an upscale store, the quality of meat on clearance is often exceptional. We just had 2 N.Y. strips last night the equal of most good resturants and the meat cost us less than $ 9.00. Altogether a very good shopping experience in a safe, crime-free area, well lighted with security and a number of other interesting shops on the parking lot area. You ought to try it!view less

Management

I bought that Lysol canister that you mount onto your wall and I have a massive complain! We have spoken to the Manager on several occassions about why they do not have the refills and this product has been on the market for several months. Not only is the Kroger on Buffalo Speedway not carry the refill's neither do any of the surrounding stores. Why even put a product on the shelves when you cannot get the refill. I am very disappointed on the action that Kroger has done in this matte...view morer...2 thumbs down..big timeview less

Not a good store

Everytime I go to this location I have to sack my own groceries. They also never have enough lanes open and they know they are contantly busy. Instead of handling the front end the person running the floor is too busy talking to her friends. There is never a place to park either and you wind up with buggys in front of your car when its time to go.The prices have went sky high and its not worth it anymore.

Great Service

West University has it good with this Kroger location. The staff is friendly, courteous, and attentive. i can find virtually everything i need there. And wow what a selection of flowers. The floral staff there is not what you'd expect from a grocery store. They are very talented and very reasonably priced. I buy all my flowers from there even though it is out of my way to do so. They have such a wonderful selection, and if you're looking for orchid plants, dear god i have never seen s...view moreo many in one place and so cheap. don't waste your time anywhere else.view less
