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.

After reading some of these comments I now understand. I work at a Kroger in Kentucky. I smile and greet the costumers, have a friendly conversation while I an scanning their orders, and the other employees hate me, and talk about me very badly but I just smile and go on. The customers give me a sad look and say have a nice day, I day the same. What is wrong with the work force?
