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 have been shopping at this Kroger (shore drive in Virginia Beach VA.) For about 16 years and used their pharmacy the same length of time.
I’m not surprised at all to see all the customer service complaints but I have never once complained.
I don’t know what’s going on there but they can not keep employees. It changes every month. So when I went in to shop and drop off a new prescription the whole pharmacy staff was new….again.
I had gone to my doctor that day and she sent me with a new start date on my medication. They all got filled except for one and instead of asking me why a new start date he was so rude I felt beat up and left and left my other prescriptions too.
I went about my shopping kind of upset but it was fine. Then the fire alarm went off for a really long time. I went to SELF CHECK OUT and mumbled “jee, its always something with this store now a days” and a cashier said “well, you can leave”!!!!
I said “I could, but my cart is full and I need groceries”
I will be shopping elswhere and using the Walgreens across the street from now on. They have been in bad shape for a while (empty shelves, no meet, rude service) but I hate change.
I’m DONE with kroger and will gladly get my things someplace else.
I’m reporting that pharmacy staff for sure because they were way wrong and way out of line.

Regarding the Kroger store at Centennial Blvd. in Richardson, Tx.
I have shopped at this store since it opened. Our neighborhood was so excited to have a Kroger store. Since it opened and over the years, the store has made a steady decline in all areas, but mainly the staff. There seems to be a lot of very young employees who haven’t realized the importance of the customer. I have let a lot of things go over the years, but about a week ago I had 2 store visits that were extremely unpleasant. The first visit resulted in not getting home with tomatoes or deli meat and cheese. When I realized that I did not have the tomatoes, I called the store to see if they were left on the check out area. I was told no, but to come to the store and they would replace them. Later that evening, I was going to make a sandwich and realized that I did not have the meat and cheese. At that point, I just wrote it off and put it in my memory bank. Why these items were charged to me and did not make it to my car is a mystery. I even had help putting the groceries in the car….
The second visit was about 10 pm. When I got ready to check out, the only places were for customer check out and the line was long.. When it was my turn, I asked for help since I had a full basket. The young lady assisting customers did help me by scanning the items in my basket. What a mess. She was definitely over worked and I observed other employees just standing around. When I asked why there was not a regular check out station opened, I was told they closed them at 10:00. Interesting since the store is open until 1:00. My observations made me think of this….”When the cats away the mice will play”. Young people need supervision and this store did not have that.

The store is in Mansfield, TX on Broad street. I went in today to pick up some groceries that my wife had asked me to pick up. Most of the time, shopping there is a good experience. Today, I had a shopping cart with what I needed, and when I got to the self check out counter (it was not busy), I remembered that I needed to get two more items. My first thought was to let one of there attendant know. However, they were busy working with other customers. I took approximately three to four minutes. I came back and my cart was gone. I asked one of the attendant, she had moved my cart to the side. That was perfectly fine until she had told me that they put back all the frozen products. I was only gone less than five minutes! To say the least, I was very angry. I requested that they bring back what they took out of my cart. This took in the area of 10 minutes, probably longer. The manager, Jeff stood there talking with some other managers, while one of his junior assistant manager took care of me. He did a reasonably good job. Later at the register, one of their employee had offered my a gift card. I did not accept it. I wasn’t looking for handout, and I don’t need it. I was furious because this should NOT have happened. This made me late in getting to a meeting. This is a great store, I am not planning to go to your competitor, and I don’t want a handout. What I want is not to have this happen again, because as much as I like Kroger, I will have a need to find a suitable competitor at that time. Perhaps someone should be speaking to this manager? If he would have apologies at the time, instead of standing there talking to what may have been his boss, I don’t think that I would be writing this complaint. I think he cared more about his conversation with his manager than a customer!
Thank you.

This morning I went into Kroger as usual, until I find another job anyways, and started working the bread which is what I do every day I work.

About an hour or so after I was already working the bread, two women come over and start removing and replacing shelf tags. 30 minutes later one of them informs me that I or they were going to have to take some of the bread that I had already stocked off the shelves because I was losing facings.

One vendor had already come in and then left saying he would try to come back later, another came in and only stocked the bare minimum of his items.

I took what I had out on the floor back to the back and also the empties and then told the head night shift guy that I was going home. I am not going to change my job around or do other things and I am definitely not going to take bread back off the shelves that I already worked.

All this because some pea-brained jack a** moron was too stupid to schedule the bread reset for their shift when there is no one there. The store is closed and there are neither stockers nor vendors.

This reset that should have been done in a week and is now going on three or four weeks is ridiculous. The person in charge of it should be fired.

I worked for a Kroger store before that did a reset in one frigging night. They closed at 8:00 p.m. and re-opened at 8:00 a.m. with a Grand Re-Opening sale. They pulled in about 30 or 40 people from other area stores and just got it done. I did the meat department by myself. This method is frigging moronic. By the way, that was in 1991.

This store is a little bigger, but not much and the reset should not have taken more than one weekend or say Monday through Wednesday with a Grand Re-Opening sale on Thursday.

This store is closed form midnight to 6:00 a.m. every night, yet the fricking reset people don’t come in until 6:00 a.m. and expect the customers and workers to go around them. F*** them.

I might be fired, but at this point with the idiotic bullsh*t that goes on in this division if not entire company I just do not give a rat’s a**.

Kroger poisons their customers by selling uncooked “Colossal Chicken”. Quality Guaranteed, right? I e-mailed Kroger and they are giving me an extremely hard time, going back and forth, even though I have pictures of the chicken and the receipt. My wife is pregnant and almost ate this which put her life and they baby’s life at risk. We had nothing for dinner that night as a result. We will NEVER be shopping at Kroger again. Not only are they poisoning people with ignorance, but their customer service is nonexistent with canned e-mail responses every single time, not listening to the customer at all. I hope you go out of business, Kroger. I told Customer Service that if they didn’t take care of me, I would go on a media rampage. Well here is the start of it.

Kroger’s does not take matters of harassment , sexual or otherwise seriously. Many of their employees curse, quite frequently dropping the “f” bomb. This is not appropriate for an associate to speak in this manner while at the workplace. They do not even care if customers are around to hear them. I have heard other employees make sexist remarks and say things of an inappropriate nature. I have worked for Kroger for more than 15 years and not once has Kroger’s addressed this issue. I complained to management several times but nothing was ever done. Kroger’s is nothing but another Good Old Boy company, very sexist.

are so right about Kroger management not taking harassment claims seriously. Perhaps a class action lawsuit like against Wal-Mart would perk them up to the issues in a lot of their divisions. They certainly did not address mine. In fact the harasse r still works for Kwik Shop in Omaha, Nebraska. Plus she steals from the company, management saw it on video and she still has a job! Why bother with filing police reportd for shoplifting when you don’t fire employees who steal … and you saw it on video?!

I’ve had a horrible experience at Kroger pharmacy at 4533 Garth Rd in Baytown, TX. I used a good rx coupon on 1/18/16, but when I tried to use it again today, was told I couldn’t and that they “made a mistake” by allowing it the first time. So basically the rx cost $100 more. I’m guessing Kroger didn’t want to lose the money. Aren’t they contractually obligated to accept good rx?

Hello Kroger’s shoppers. The experience I just had with my local store was turning out to be a nightmare but blossomed into a flower. The reason I am telling you this is I first called in my prescription number around 9:20 this morning and the robo computer said I would have to talk to a manager.

So I called back and talked to an employee who works in the pharmacy and they said that “The insurance will not pay for this product.” So I called my PC doctor and they said they would check into this. So I thought I would let them do there job. So then I called the Kroger’s pharmacy office around 4:20 pm and waited for about :15 Min’s and no one picked up the phone. So I got frustrated and called the local store manager who himself walked the phone he had to the pharmacy area and I talked to Mark(my friend) and he said with all the rush for the weather that he was backed up and no one was able to answer the phone and apologized for that.

He gave me the drug representative for Kroger’s store region. Her name is Amber Brackett. She said that this was an easy fix and should take only for a doctor to call in the prescription that I needed.

Ms. Amber is a great help and a fine associate for Kroger’s and I’m glad I know her and can count on her if needed again. Thanks AMBER.

1505 Wirt Rd in Houston – Saturday, January 9th

Weird situation was going on behind the Customer Service desk. As I was waiting in line to purchase lottery tickets and paying a bill, I had noticed one of your employee’s behind the counter pulling out lottery tickets out of her purse and scanning them into the lottery machine. As I finished my transaction, I notify a Kroger’s employee of the situation and pointed out to the employee who the person was that was scanning her lottery tickets. This way she can notify her manager. To my surprise the employee’s response was; this was one of her managers on duty. I told her not to worry about it because I didn’t want her to have any conflict with her manager. I told her I would address this with the Kroger’s corporate office instead. I am sure if Kroger’s would look at their security camera that is over the service desk. They should be able to see the employee doing this.

January 9, 2016 around 10:45 am, The most HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE ever at Kroger (gas). I love shopping at Krogers. I was getting lunch for work and gas at Kroger, 22150 Westheimer Pkwy. It was very busy this morning. Once a pump became available, I scan my Kroger card, enter my zipcode with credit /debit card. I insert the nozzle in my car, and went to sit will gas pumping. When I took the nozzle out and turn the car on, I did not have any gas. I explain this to the cashier, she said, “Your car is broken”. I advised that my car is not broken. I showed her the preauthorization that was charged to my card. She directed me to go and speak to manger in the Kroger store. I requested to speak to a manager, I am not sure what this person position is, but I explained everything to him, Daniel Rios. He did not understand and requested me to show him my car. Daniel requested the receipt and my card used along with my Kroger card. He later said, “This is not your card on this transaction”. I said ok, maybe it was a mistake at the pump or cashier. I have a pre-authorization on my card and I have no gas. While taking to Daniel, he was over talking me. He wanted to explain about debit/credit to me. How the process work. I tried to tell Daniel , I know about ACH transaction because I work in the industry for 13 years. Well he didn’t listen because he kept talking. I requested a note from him. If the transaction did clear my account, I will request a reversal. He said, “I can’t do that”. I asked why not. He said, “We just do not do that”. Then he starts to yell, “This is Fraud. This is Fraud. Fraudulent activity. This is fraudulent activity”. I asked him, Are you accusing me of stealing? Why would I give you my credit card and information on me , just to steal from someone else. I asked for the receipt back for my proof. He refused, so I took it back. I went into the store and now requested for General Manager. Jeff Bailey came with a huge grin. I explain the exact same thing to Jeff. Jeff is saying yeap, yeap while chewing gum with teeth showing. He is looking through me and not giving any feedback. People passing by looking at me as being label as a thief. What Jeff said to me in a sarcastic harsh tone, GOOD BYE. Now, I am now very upset and shaking, heart beating very fast. This has never, never happen to me. Now Daniel showed me that my card was not charged, ok. He did not need to start yelling Fraud.out loud in front of customers. Jeff showed no empathy, and no willingness to solve or ease my concerns.
Many Krogers I’ve shopped always greeted me with a smile and light conversation. Jeff Bailey and Daniel Rios need more customer communication training. I really need to hear back from Kroger.

Horrible experience this morning. @ around 5:50am, I had a cart full of groceries, got ready to checkout, since it’s too early all lanes are closed except self checkout, but I have been told many times b4 that if I have a lot of items, someone should help and open a lane…..I never had issue in the western hills Kroger store on Glenway ave, Cincinnati except with this employee named Mark! Very lazy . Every time he sees someone coming with full cart he tries to ignore the customers. Anyway, I asked him nicely if he can help but he was so rude in replying that the checkout lanes are closed!!!! When I told him why we’re you checking out a customer just 5mins ago, then he changed his mind and raised his hands like if he wants to beat me and told that I have to wait b4 he can help me….strange how he changed his mind…first lane is closed and he can’t help but now he can help but I have to wait!!! Very bad customer service! What I did , cause I didn’t trust him anymore (cause he can scan items twice, punch wrong code for produce…), I left the whole cart and exited the store.
Unfortunately, this store is closed to where I live, and I always had good experience…I’m waiting for manager to come around 8am to make complaint and would expect an apology from Kroger…if this doesn’t help, I will go to headquarters downtown Cincinnati and step up this case!!!I hope Kroger does the right thing . I feel I was badly mistreated!

Management at Kroger in Jonesboro Arkansas is not conducting themselves professionally when it comes to their employees. The whole month of December, employees were having their hours slashed substantially. When employees would come to work, management had little to no regard toward the way they would talk to and treat their employees. We were expected to come in and do our jobs, (which isn’t a problem) and listen to and put up with them talking to us like dogs. Those who stood up and tried to get them to re-evaluate how they would treat us and talk to us were fired the next day or two (myself included). This is very unprofessional and it’s time for the fascism to stop.

I am searching the Health Department to address my concerns at the Kroger in Highland Village, TX. I sent a note and did not hear back regarding the spoiled food that I continue to purchase at this location. It happens about one out of every three-five times I purchase groceries. I have started going to the Kroger closer to work and don’t have the problem so think it is this location and not a Kroger practice. My biggest concern is the large number of elderly that frequent this store. I remember the media covered these issues a few years ago with grocery stores and maybe that is the best option.

We have learned to never purchase marked down items in any department. Now we always check the dates but rarely bring the food back but have addressed it with management. I love the staff but management and associates behind customer service are generally trying to place blame back on us and I frankly I don’t want that smell in my car to return it.

This time was especially aggravating because I purchased wings to cook for Christmas with my family. I purchased it Christmas Eve at 4pm and live less than a mile away so it was not that I didn’t care for the food. We opened them Christmas afternoon to cook and they were rotten! However, it happen with cheese, lunch meat and other perishable foods.

What else can I do to address this problem? Please give feedback because I am very concerned this issue is not being addressed.

I had the worst experience at Krogers last night! I got a Turkey at Krogers for $27. When I began to cook it , it began to smell rotten! I told the night time manager! He said he’d talk to the meat manager about it! I asked him if he needed my name & phone #,. He never answered! So I have no Turkey for Christmas for my family! Plus I have company coming! This bothers me because I spend over $600 plus on food & gasoline! But I guess they don’t care! I thought he would give me a turkey! I’m on a fix salary so I didn’t have money to buy another! I’ve shopped at Krogers every since they came to Bowling Green, KY I guess I will start going to Walmart for groceries ! My family will be very disappoint like I am! !!

I don’t know why I am even attempting to do this after reading all of these horrible comments about the Kroger Company. I guess I am just hoping that my words are not only heard, but understood. So hear it goes…

I have family/friends that has worked for your company for many years and many years at Farmer Jack before out bought them out. I am sickened by the things I hear about this company in general, but also about the individual stores. It seems the management at ANY store is less than competent in running it and don’t really seem to care. For this reason the staff suffer and become disgruntled in doing their jobs it seems. When staff isn’t happy, the company suffers. Staff need to come before anyone else in order to be successful. When management cannot manage properly and efficiently many things can go wrong. I imagine the turn your turn over rate must be astronomical. For a company that provides itself on integrity and the hiring process, I’d say the only thing you people seem to care about is how much money you can make. Tell me, what good is a company without a solid foundation? You are crumbling and either your too blind to see it or you plain just don’t care…
To the woman on here who woks for Kroger who said you never know what people are going though so we must try to be patient….ma’am you could not be more right, I totally agree. However, there are the odd cases where wrong is wrong and there is no hidden meaning behind the behavior. For example, the other woman on here who complained of being threatened and felt her life was endanger because of the employee who was clearly psychotic. Now don’t get me wrong he very well could have a mental disorder that we as a customer do not know about. However, that is the type of situation that needs to be taken care of and dealt with, maybe move him from customer service or put him in the back, I’m not sure, but as a company you don’t just shove serious things under the rug and move on only to endanger the customers. It’s funny to me that he refused to help her the next time they had an encounter when it should have been the other way around. Immediately, he should have been pulled aside and talked to about his behavior. He should have been asked why and able to explain, not just able to keep working treating customers like dirt. If the store cannot handle their employees then corporate should be stepping in. And if an employee is going through a difficult time they should be given mandatory time off in order to deal with life and work so they don;t “snap.” KROGER IS YOUR BRAND and your letting it get defiled with piss poor customer service and employees. Everything in life can’t just be about money when their are human beings involved, which bring me to my next point cuz I can go on about customer service forever…

I was recently informed that Kroger stores are adopting families for the holidays. My initial reaction was WOW THATS SO COOL! considering I hear NOTHING good about the company, Then this person I know that works for Kroger (has many years in) proceeds to tell me what adopting a family entails (she was buying gifts for the family and I asked her why). She says, “well Kroger gives them a meal.” My second reaction was,” are ykou freaking kidding me, thats not what adoption means.” So if this is true Kroger let me explain to you what adoption means. It means FAMILY FOR LIFE. THEY BECOME YOURS AND YOU TAKE CARE OF THEM. You don’t just provide ONE meal. For example, when you adopt a pet you don’t just go to the shelter hand a dog a bone and walk right back out. NO. When you adopt a pet ir becomes family, you pay the adoption fee, take it home, love it, nurture it, care for it, provide shelter and food and proper health care, play with it, etc…
So again if this is true, your ridiculous and please change “adopting a family” to “providing a meal for a family.” All that money you make and one meal is the best you can do while all your GOOD employees provide clothing, gifts, and toys. That’s pretty sad Kroger when the only good employees you seem to have make your entire company look like a bunch of cheap fools. Wow indeed, Mind blown. All that money you have from all those stores and you can’t pay it forward properly? Honestly you should be handing out all expense paid vacations to loyal employees just for dealing with your shenanigans! HA!

I wrote this because my faith in humanity is dwindling and your faith in your employees clearly is overrated because you don’t seem to care in the way that you should in regards to telling people hat you stand for which is pretty much sad. I feel sorry for the good employees that actually do care, but their care is being squashed by the many incompetent people in management and fellow employees. You as a company do nothing for employees or humanity and that is a crime against the world. Clearly so many others feel this way. If it were my brand (and I am currently building my own company) I would nurture the crap out of it. I would ask my employees how I could make their experience better and what I could do to change the things that need to be changed, I would not just listen but I would hear and understand. ITS YOUR BRAND AND YOUR LETTING IT BE TAINTED WITH NEGATIVITY. I just don’t get companies like you, and I haven’t even told you half of what I know. Please do something, start caring properly, stand for EXACTLY what you say you do and back it up or else in the future you won’t have a company.It may not be in my future but it will be in the future if things keep up the way they are. Handle one complaint at a time, it’ll probably take you forever to fix what is broken, but if your namesake is worth it then you’ll take the time to do what needs to be done. Also, that means to start replying to people on here so they know they are heard and ot ignored, not matter bad or good. Be a company people can be proud to walk into.

I worked at the Kroger store on 7905 Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh, NC and when I started on Oct. 30th, 2014 I did not have the proper shoes to work in the deli so through Krogers, I ordered a pair and they deducted it from my paycheck in two installments. The shoes came in after 2 weeks and they were too big so we sent them back. Then after 3 weeks, the company sent the wrong shoe and the wrong size. This happened once more and then I asked for a refund from HR (Charlie- a woman). Krogers said to contact the shoe company and the shoe company told me its through Krogers because they took it out of my check. Its been over a year now and I am STILL GETTING THE RUNAROUND. No one at Corporate seems to care but $55 may not be a lot of money to them but it is to me. Am SO SICK OF THE BULL AND THE RUNAROUND, PLUS LACK OF COOPERATION !!!! AND I still worked in my shoes that weren’t appropriate for the job (non-skid). Can’t believe the lack of response and big deal on refunding my money that was taken out of my PAYCHECK. THAT’S STEALING!!! SUCH HYPOCRITES!!!

My family and I were in the Kroger store last night located at Barnes Crossing in Tupelo, MS. We had a situation where my 7 year old ate some blue substance off the floor located in the deli department. It turned out to be Spill Magic. There were no signs stating CAUTION. In fact, it was under a machine in a pile. With the inviting blue color and sugary looking texture my 9 year old told my 7 year old that it was blue sugar from the donut machine and my 7 year old tried it. There were donut samples sitting right above it that the deli worker had told my children were free. One of the workers got a manager involved, who by the way handled the situation by reprimanding my children (which I had already done when the incident occurred and several more times throughout the night). My son was in tears and scared and so was my daughter at this point. Then the workers stood around and proceeded to laugh about the situation and point at me and my family. Now, I do not in any way disregard the fact that my 7 year old should have known better than to put a blue, very inviting, sugary looking substance in his mouth from the floor of a grocery store but the fact is he did. He can read and would have known had there been a caution sign in front of it. On the other hand, if he had been 3 and couldn’t read and put the substance in his mouth it would have been possibly fatal. I called Poison Control first thing and for the rest of the night had to watch my child for blisters in his mouth, vomiting or sudden swelling. Luckily, he didn’t get but a taste. He was punished for his actions and I don’t believe he will ever do something like that again. There is, however, the chance that if you leave something like that out again without cleaning it up and without a sign that the store might not be so lucky. My husband is disabled, I have 3 children and work full time. It is hard to make my money stretch so I choose to shop at Kroger, as do a lot of my family members, where I usually get good service and good deals. We chose to go ahead and get the groceries we had in our basket last night but I don’t believe I will be shopping at that Kroger anymore. I try to be a good, honest person, I don’t plan on going the legal route with any of this. But if this were to happen to someone that did pursue legal action, it might not end so well.

I moved from the Bay Area to Seattle Washington on 9/26/15. I immediately looked for grocery stores and was pleased to find a grocery store of the Kroger family called QFC, right across the street from our apartment. The first time I went, I picked up veggies, tofu, juice, organic flour, wine, etc. I approached the cash register (complerely unaware that I was headed into a very disastrous, violent, intimidating, misogynistic, racist, xenophobic, Hitler based behavior from a cashier by the name of Roger).

I set the carry basket down and advised the cashier, I would hand him the items I was going to purchase and that I might not get everything in my basket. He looked at me and began snatching the items I was handing him. His body and hands then started shaking in a violent manner.

Please note, he never said hello, hi, how is your day. I asked him was he ok and asked that he let me know when I reached 75.00. No acknowledgement from him. He continued to roughly snatch the items I was handing him and I asked was he ok again. He then looked at me and said very loudly and in a menacing, threatening tone, do you want me to tell you or not when you reach 75.00? This was when I started to get physically scared; I felt threatened because of his behaviour towards me. During this time, a line had developed behind me and I asked him why was he talking and treating me this way? He didnt answer and looked very, very, very, very, very, very angry.

I then knew it was because of my ethnicity. I am Dominican, Black, and Native American.

I looked around because this entire incident was on display. Everyone in line saw how he was treating me (all white), and no one said anything. I walked around the cash register and I looked at the bagger (also white) and asked her, in front of him, why is he treating me this way? Her response: well, everyone has a bad day and she looked away. She never once intervened. How very, very sad. If she didn’t want to stop the injustice, who will? I looked at his name tag, saw that it said Roger, and I asked him again why the discrimination in his treatment towards me? He started yelling and I asked him to stop everything and then I asked the bagger, to get the manager. She came back with the manager and I asked her to finish my transaction because of the racist behaviour of Roger. She apologized, took me to the next register and I explained to her the entire ordeal. I asked for a next day follow-up. I left the store and realized I didn’t have both bags. I immediately went back to the cash register and my 2nd bag was not there. It had mysteriously disappeared. I don’t think that was the case. I believe, Roger saw me leave it and intentionally hid my 2nd bag.

The next day, I decided to proactively follow up with the store manager, Eric Roner. He wanted me to come in and I did. I told him the story and how badly I felt for receiving the abusive and racist treatment. He apologized and stated, I’m not supposed to tell you this but, I demoted Roger 2 weeks ago and we have a history of issues with him. Maybe that has something to do with it. I accepted the apology and was given a $40.00 gift card for the incident. This gift card in this circumstance, was unacceptable to remedy the treatment.

Last night, December 2, at 11:15pm, I went to QFC, picked up a couple of items, went to the cash register and the cashier left and refused to process my purchase. Someone by the name of Brandon (swing team lead) came over and started the process and I asked him what happened to the first cashier? And what is his name? Brandon advised his name is Roger and I said oh, now I understand. I said is it customary to get refused service? His response: look, I don’t know what’s happened between you two. I looked at him like really? When Brandon finished and I saw my total, Roger came back over and stood next to Brandon, and stared at me in a very threatening way. Based on the look n on Roger’s face, I felt that he wanted to harm me and I became frightened for my life and rushed out.

I called and spoke with the assistant store manager at 8:59am this morning (JJ) and advised of last nights travesty and also the October incident. I asked for Roger to be removed from his job, he advised they were unionized and could not remove him and if it were up to him, he would fire many of the people there but could not because of the union. So I said, you mean a customer can be harassed, non verbally threatened, intimidated and treated in an inhumane manner based on skin color/ethnicity and it be ok? He said no and he would do everything in his power to remedy this and would have Eric to call me. I also stated to JJ, I don’t need to shop agaon in this store and be treated this way ever again and I don’t need Roger to retaliate from this 2nd complaint and see me in the parking lot and attempt to harm me in any way. If this should happen, I will call 911.

I did not hear from Eric and I called your corporate office to file a complaint. In my complaint, I asked for the removal of Eric Roner the store manager, Brandon the shift team lead and Roger the cashier.

You are hiring people that lack diversity and that is very dangerous. What does that say about your leadership team? Is the team exhibiting the same behavior?

Burning questions: are you normally in the practice of hiring racially biased people? And/or people that are unable to stifle their prejudices towards people of color? Is that how you effectively meet your daily sales goals, your organizational objectives? How you plan your road map 5 years down the pipeline? If this is your strategy for your business model, I suggest you change it fast. Today’s climate will no longer stand against injustice. How Roger treated me in both instances was undeserved, unacceptable, threatening, hurtful, scary, xenophobic, terrible, menacing, and I am now fearing for my life.

How are you going to prevent this from happening to any person ever again? No matter the nationality, gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, or religion?

I will always stand for racial equity and this wasn’t it.

I have a friend who works at Kroger (Fryes in Arizona) and know that a person was fired just for cussing back at a customer. When I asked her about the union, she said there ARE situations (such as theft, sexual harassment, etc.) where the employee is suspended immediately until it is reviewed by the union. She also said the union very seldom protects employees against misconduct.

Perhaps you should contact Corporate Headquarters as well as get the media involved.

PLEASE READ I felt I needed to share a part of my day yesterday with you.
Yesterday, I stopped at the Kroger gas station on Gratiot in Roseville Michigan before I headed to work. I stepped out of my Jeep in a hurry shut the door and realized I had locked my keys in my Jeep. I went to the small building to see if I could use the phone telling the lady what happened and where my Jeep was parked in front of the pump. She directed me to go to TJMax. Who normally do not allow it but thank God they allowed me to use their phone to call me insurance company which took forever to get help and then my boss who was so ever so understanding. I walked back to the small building to let the lady know that someone was coming, now 2 women present the other woman who was not there before starting screaming at me that I can’t leave me Jeep there so long she called a tow truck and I told her the other lady knew I locked my keys inside and went to call for help. She said the other lady told her she didn’t know why the Jeep was sitting there. I looked at her and I said you knew I told you and you told me to go to TJMax to use the phone as I had no phone. I said why would you lie and have my Jeep towed? What if it were you? She still said nothing. I told the lady I don’t know why she is telling you nothing but that is what happened and she knew. The lady canceled the tow for now she said but I am blocking their pump and if they don’t hurry they will have my Jeep towed. Tears running down my face I went to stand in front of my Jeep praying they would hurry. I was freezing cold watching for help to come it was about 1 1/2 hours I stood now unable to feel my feet and hands, I prayed for God to please help me. The lady who yelled came back and told me she was getting ready to call a tow truck, don’t I have a husband to bring my extra key? I said no mam I don’t. She said you can’t call someone? I said if I could I would but I just had service done one my jeep both keys are inside and I don’t know anyone to call other then my insurance which I have coverage. She said I am not waiting much longer. I couldn’t stop the tears I thought why are people so mean, I don’t know what else to do. After 1 1/2 hours after tons of people came in and out of the gas station a lady said mam are you ok? At first I didn’t realize she was talking to me. I said I locked my keys in my Jeep and I am waiting for help. She offered for me to sit with her girlfriend and her until they came. I said its been a long time I don’t want to hold you up. They insisted. I told her they were the whole story and they could call a tow truck so she parked in front of my Jeep and said over her dead body. Then she continued to call the company who was supposed to be there over and over until they finally showed up this was now almost 3 hours. I will tell you I prayed and even though the help I thought I needed there fast instead 2 wonderful angels showed up instead I thanks them so much. Even though they are not on my Facebook and I thanked them I can’t thanks them enough. 1 1/2 hours not one person said a word to me, never offered help nothing. I just stood watching for help cold, praying with tears running down my face. It is a shame so many people came through because of how cheap the price. And saw me. And just one offered me warmth, a phone and most of all to be there for me. Please remember this I beg you. I would never want anyone to go through what I did, and yes it could have been worse. But please offer help even a phone call whatever. Thanks for reading I am sorry it was so long. But I hope it will make you think the next time you see someone who may need your help. I have shopped at Kroger’s for year’s as a loyal customer and referred friends and family due to sales etc.. I don’t normally go to this Kroger Location but I had just dropped of clothes donated for a child. This time was around 12:30pm and I was finally leaving at 2:45pm 3:00pm. I also used my card and purchased had I paid cash bit used my Kroger card, the purchase was made after I was yelled at so you can get the right time frame. The woman who I first spoke to is a larger shorter black woman in her 20 s or 30 s she is also the woman who said she knew nothing about why my Jeep was sitting there and told me to go to TJMax to call me insurance compay and would say nothing when i confronted her in front of the other woman at this point crying thinking my Jeep was going to be towed and the woman who yelled and screamed at me.in front of tons of other customers what a taller blonde maybe 5. 4 and not thin but a little chunky. She is also the one who can back out and said she wasn’t waiting much longer. I will also tell you that the taller blonde lady when she was yelling at me said she paged me.in Kroger’s which is not next to the gas station. I only went to TJMax because it was right next to the gas station and that is when the shorter Black lady your employee told me.to go. Kroger store is a lot farther down. The lady said she was paging me.in Kroger and the whole time the shorter black employee knew I wasn’t there she told me to go to TJMax. She was gonna let.my Jeep get towed. I will not no matter what the savings will shop or get gas at your stores if this is how someone is treated. The Taller white lady had a white mini van she left and came back in she never even offered for me to sit inside I was freezing. I could not wait in TJMax because of the threat of my Jeep being towed. Again this was at Kroger on Gratiot one Roseville Michigan. South of 11 mile rd. November 28th 2015. Around 12 or 12:30pm. I definitely will make sure my friends and family know how you are treated at this Kroger Store I would never treat anyone this way.

I am so sorry for all the horrible experiences that anyone has been subjected to at any Kroger. I’ve worked for bilo and publix and many other companies, and I have to say with all honesty no one company is perfect. There will always be issues weather your a customer or employee. At Kroger we are trained to give the best possible customer service we can. It’s a policy they enforce and some of us really do try to maintain that policy, however for some employees that policy doesn’t matter to them. It’s easy to say Kroger, Kroger, Kroger but let’s be honest. It’s not Kroger but someone within Kroger that caused a bad experience. I wish we had the power to simply fire someone for causing a bad experience, but we don’t. There are steps to follow. I work for Kroger, I shop at kroger. I to had a God awful experience. I was checking out, the cashier was ignoring me, speaking to another employee, then when I got her attention she basically snapped at me, was rude. And the next day I had planned on speaking to Her, but she wasn’t there. Several days later I found out her child was sick, and she lost her child. No she shouldn’t have been rude to me. However I think sometimes we forget that people are human and sometimes there’s things going on that effect us. It’s easy to say leave your personal stuff at home. We all know that sometimes that’s just impossible. I’m not making excuses, right is right and wrong is wrong. I’m simply saying let’s take a deep breath and remember that we don’t know what’s going on in people’s lives, and just maybe that woman who was rude that one day, is normally a exemplary employee who is usually the best at making customers happy. When bad things happen and people are rude, I just say to them. I’m sorry your having a bad day and I hope that tomorrow is better. Because I know I’m not perfect and I’ve had off days to. Again I’m sorry to everyone who has left a comment on here that was a bad experience, and for those employees who hate their jobs and think Kroger is mistreating you. Maybe your right, maybe not. But if I was so unhappy with where I worked, I would find another job. Because we are grown capable people and it’s your life, do what you need to do, to have a good life and a job you can respect and love working. It’s employment, not slavery, you have a choice.

My last 3 trips to the Kroger Market in Calhoun Ga. were what I would call a disaster. A couple of weeks ago I went there with a list of groceries for the next week, on that list I had Gala Apples, and Naval Oranges. Not find them I ask your product man were they were, his answer darn near floored me ” we don’t carry them any longer”. I then turned around and drove to Rome, Ga. where I found just what I looking for at Publix’s and also spent nearly $200.00 for our weeks needs.
The following week I returned to your store in Calhoun, Ga. and much to my surprise you had Naval Oranges, but no Gala Apples. The oranges were Organic and about half the size of normal Naval Oranges. I picked up a few things and checked out knowing I would be in Rome Ga the next day and could finish our shopping at Publix.
Today on way home from Costco’s near Chattanooga we realized we had forgotten sweet yellow onions. So I stopped at your store in Calhoun again, you will not believe what happened. Your produce dept. had about 20 sweet yellow onions and no other onion except red onions. There is a sign under the sweet yellow onions, 10 for $10.00, you folk must think I just landed from Mars, how stupid do you guys think the pubic is? The old saying is “3 strikes our out” I’ll take the sure way to savings, Publix in Rome Ga.
c/o sent to Publix with a recommendation, build a store near Calhoun and take over the market share there.

The management team at 495 in Irving Texas is the worst!! I have been an employee for their 9 years and I have never been treated so horribly. I work in the floral department and majority of my shift they call me up front to check! I am NOT a checker! They never do this to any other department but ours. there could be 6 other surge checkers in the building but they call me. I have things to do in my department. my manager told FE ” call FLORAL because they are not doing anything important anyway” sometimes I am checking 4 hours of my shift?? so that’s basically stealing hours from another department. they don’t dare do this to deli or GM but floral ? I have seen the co manager take stuff on shelf and eat it.. without going to register and pay for it.. but recently they fired 2 people for the same thing? why don’t you fire her?? she is stealing from your company!! I’m astonished of the lack of compassion and humanity these managers are trained to have..

last sunday floral received a pallet of ceramic santa claus and snowmen. they are extremely heavy.. I am not technically supposed to be lifting anything. our lousy manager stood there and watched. Did NOT offer to help or get me help… i even said “thanks for NOT helping” and he smirked and walked away. that’s the training you give managers now? not to help us? what if that was him? he would have someone helping him lift.. oh that’s right he’s lazy.. i forgot..
I really do love Kroger. I just question the management we get to deal with.. where do you train them to be decent human beings who care for their employees?

Kroger : 2301 Rayford Rd Spring, TX 77386
ABSOLUTE WORST! I have had numerous bad experiences, even with a manager. Emailed Kroger and I have been given the run around since 09/09/2015…. it is almost 2 months later, my last email from them was on 09/21/2015, stating that the manager would be in contact with me. Really??!! The same manager that was more concerned about me letting the public know what I found in his store, the same manager that knows who we are because we were always in that store, we were never greeted or anything from him. Oh, but when i had an associate call him over to show him what I found in his store, he was so so apologetic and really hopes that I would not let that get out to the public……Well I just might get it out there. They are a gross joke.

I have tried to get out of this damn union for the past 6 months and NOTHING HAS HAPPENED!!! I feel bad for these customers because I see the way the supervisors and the other cashiers treat them and these customers don’t deserve it. I want to apologize to all of you customers who have had a real bad experience with any Kroger store in any state.

I visited this comment section two nights ago. My intention was to relate a bad experience I have had with one of the many Kroger stores. Sadly, upon reading the comments I was astonished at some of the rebuttals from a person named Kendall and his humiliating remarks toward people with complaints on this site. One person was ridiculed for his grammar. Another person berated because she was dramatic. Still another person was treated in a shocking manner involving language which I found offensive. I wrote an email asking who this Kendall was. So let me get this straight Kroger. If you have a bad experience at a Kroger store, you can comment about it but you will be berated by the all knowing Kendall. Double whammy! We get to have a second forum where we can go to be further humiliated in the blog. You didn’t think twice about letting Kendall deride and ridicule people who had already had a poor experience at your stores . Wow!!! Just sayin’!! I

Who is this sanctimonious prat named Kendall? There isn’t anywhere else to take your complaint if the local stores won’t listen to you. No phone numbers are listed on the website for human resource complaints and if these people want to complain on this blog it’s their right to do so. Maybe Kendall should practice some professionalism. Is Kendall’s last name Kroger or what?

I’ll be happy to tell you what is wrong with the work force in this company. My husband is the asst. store director in the Kingman, Az. store (#190) and he has been so BRAINWASHED since he went into the MD1 training program that he no longer has a family. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!!! He has only been an asst. for 2 1/2 yrs.. Prior to this, he had his issues, but they have trippled in volume at home. He has informed me of a person in the pharmacy who was in there for 2 yrs. to become a pharmacy tech and failed her test not once, but twice. Would you want that person filling your scripts? I definitely would NOT! She is still in the pharmacy almost a year later, WHY! I believe the store director is keeping her in there because she is very good at skimming off of peoples scripts and selling bags to employees. People need to count their meds before paying. If there is no response or resolve to this issue, I will start writing to all the newspapers editors to get the info out there to the public. I believe this company is sick and needs a major revamp!!!!

Worried Customer October 7, 2015 at 12:29 pm

I want to make this perfectly clear…. I’m not asking for more medication or extra medication. I just feel that there is a problem in the pharmacy at the store on the corner of Nolensville pike and Concord rd in Brentwood TN. Last month after I filled my prescription I happens to notice that it looked like I didn’t have as many pills as I should have so I counted them and I was 8 short from what I should have had at that point in the month. Being a few days had passed I didn’t call because I knew it would fall on def ears and in this day and age I would look like a drug addict trying to get pills. Being they are pain meds for a back surgery I had a month ago. Well I had this months script filled and decided to count them as soon as I got home and to my surprise! I was shorted again I immediately call the pharmacy to report there mistake and as foreseen was treated like a person trying to get something over on them. Even after trying to explain I’m not asking for more pills because honestly I don’t take as many as are prescribed. I just don’t want a drug addict or drug dealer handling my or anyone else’s medication. Also they told me that they would count there inventory and let me know if they were off. Well no surprise they didn’t call me back I had to call them this morning and wait for it they told me there inventory was correct. Which was no surprise. So I’m no detective but if the bottle on there shelf has the correct amount in it and the one they gave to me doesn’t then the only place they could have gone is on there floor or in the persons pocket that filled my script. What I want to know was it the same person 2 months in a row? And how often do they drug test there employees because at this point they have stolen 1/6 of my prescription of a controlled substance which I believe is a felony in any state.

Reply

K.R. October 21, 2015 at 11:21 am

Yes that is a felony in every state. And as a former Kroger employee, the only time they drug test their employees is when they are hired. The only other time they get tested is if there is an injury at work or some other sort of mishap. That’s it. Next time, bring a witness and get a store manager, not the pharmacy manager, and record from your phone or your witness phone the entire process and count your meds right there under the store camera, your own, the manager and all of the witnesses before you pay for them! And count them out loud.

I’d like Kroger to have a small neon sign at the entrance of each store which would, when lit up, say “Self Checkout Only” for use during those hours when that’s the only checkout option. That way, I would know when to not enter your store. I don’t want to use a self checkout system, and I don’t want to enter and shop if that’s the only option for checkout.
I tried to send this to Kroger by way of their customer contact form on line, but that would not work for me

Horrible embarassing experience at the kroger pharmacy. I went to the dentist to get a tooth pulled. I was terrified and not thinking quite clearly. They gave me a perscription for the pain. Well I already get them from my ortho dr due to no cartilage in my knee and I am getting a replacement in November. So when I went to drop off the script I didn’t even look at (still nauseous and trying to calm down from the fear I had) I go back to the pharmacy and the woman kept saying over and over quite loud so everyone can hear, “the oral surgeon voided your script. He voided it cause you already have another dr giving you a stronger dose. I had to call your surgeon…. Etc”. That was quite embarassing to keep repeating that over a few times. I’m going to make sure every one knows this story and see what I can find out about hippa. They could have called me and said something like don’t you realize this is the same. Maybe they are not scared to death of the dentist but there are some people that are. And instead of embarassing you in front of everyone do what you are supposed to do and help out the patients. I will never even shop at kroger again due to that issue. I’ll go to Meijer. As I said I will make sure there are others that know what had happened. I’ll be looking into this further. This is not the first bad experience I’ve had at kroger but this was the last straw.

How old are we?? I’m pretty sure ‘WE’ are adults!! You on the other hand, Kendall, I couldn’t be sure. What are you? A Kroger Groupie?? Are you the person assigned to answer our complaints?? I highly doubt that, butt out and go find something useful to do, like maybe get a job!! Unless you already have a job working for Kroger. In that case, you should get a better job!! Kroger has serious issues within their ranks from department management all the way up the ladder to corporate!! I for one, am tired of the BS and I’m here to make my point one way or another. But before I could get started with my own complaints, I felt that someone should tell you to grow up and leave people alone that have real issues with Kroger!!

RIP OFF ALERT!!!!!

Just got the birthday cake my daughter ordered for my grand daughters birthday. When she ordered the cake, she went into detail as to what she wanted. Some one has got to learn to understand English. Pastel is a light pink not very not vibrant hot pink. When you use green with pastel flowers….for heavens sake don’t use forest (dark) green. Marble cake is supposed to be a mix of chocolate & white or yellow not all white or yellow. It was her 12th birthday which wasn’t even supposed to be on the cake let alone 10th birthday which was put on it. They tried to fix it but couldn’t do it right. They even spelled the name wrong and put the one letter backwards after being told specifically how to spell it correctly.
The girl didn’t act like she wanted to even be there much less help a customer. With 30 minutes till the party, a messed up cake…my daughter gets a “well, we will have a conversation with the decorator. WOOOOOPTTTTTTTDOOOOOO THEY GIVER HER A WHOLE 4 bucks off and that was after she had to ask for a discount. Thanks a bunch for making this such a great birthday cake. We will be sure not to come back. Oh, in case you are wondering, this isn’t the first cake they messed up. Won’t be back to that bakery for sure. Your night time manager needs to learn some customer service skills too. How fast are you going to pull this review?
UGLIEST CAKE EVER….AND I CAN SEND PICTURES TO A CELL PHONE!!!!!

Hopefully when they pull this review, they note your flare for the DRAMATICS. It’s a birthday cake, not a wedding dress. Many of their employees don’t act like they want to be there, I agree. But that’s in any retail/grocery store, hospital, rest., etc. It’s a matter of work ethic.

Kendall, – even if a customer orders a lowly BIRTHDAY CAKE, they DESERVE to have it done right. There was not ONE mistake, but many. But what can you say about a company that cares NOTHING about solving problems. And I suspect you ARE with Kroger as the name Kendall came up as a mysterious being at Kroger that no one seems to know.

And, by the way, Kroger may be having trouble with their employees because they are not treating them right. Yes, customers make employees paychecks possible, but the EMPLOYEES are who keeps YOUR CUSTOMERS happy – unless, that is, you don’t care about your employees and thus they care nothing about you. I’ve always stood up for Kroger since I have a friend working there and know Kroger is not always at fault – but your comment minimizing the situation because, in YOUR eyes, it’s ONLY a birthday cake, not a wedding dress, shows your ignorance.If Kroger makes their employees happy, the employees will make KROGER,and their customers happy!!

I sadly regret to state that I will no longer be a shopper at any Kroger stores here in Columbus, Ohio or elsewhere thanks to the interaction in which I just went through at the fuel pumps at the Lewis Center/Polaris Kroger on Sancus Blvd. Not having much time before work I stopped to get gasoline at the pump because my tank was low. At the pumps they were doing some promotion of some product and showing individuals this item. I paid no attention to it because I had no interest. One of the individuals who was showing this thing off comes up to the pump and I politely say “No thank you, Sir” before he can say anything. He then promptly starts to push this product on me making me have to go “No thank you, Sir’ once more, in which in response he RAISES his voice to over tone mine and continues to attempt to get me to give in to being shown this item. I have to raise my own voice and go “NO THANK YOU SIR” for him to leave, which as he leaves “Okay Brah, Okay Bro, Geeze Brah, Just doing a promotion Bro” and makes a lewd gesture to another customer at a pump in my direction and LAUGHS. Drawing every body else at the pumps to look in my direction and LAUGH at me as well. Due to this insult I shall never again set foot on any property of Kroger or purchase anything from any Kroger store, even if they are the only store in the area I live I shall drive to another store due to how I was insulted.

Do Not Shop at Kroger Co. ‪#‎KrogerCo‬

I purchased two Visa Gift Cards that wouldn’t work anywhere. Went back to Kroger of Oak Ridge, TN to return them. A very rude Kroger agent ran the cards as a sale with her manager override key. She threw the money on the card back at me, and then kept the $12 activation fee which didn’t activate anything. Every time including when the manager swiped them, it stated “not authorized”. So don’t shop at Kroger if you want customer service, you won’t get it. I suggest a local store where you can get better customer service. They stole my $12. Well if $12 is so much to them, I will move all of my Kroger purchases to the store that is their Competition here in Oak Ridge, TN. I will move my food purchases, pharmacy purchases, gift purchases which total much more than $12. I will also not support Kroger and actively put out social media denouncing Kroger Co. and their rude, greedy crooks they are to everyone I meet. It is time to move on Kroger, you are going to lose some customers. I don’t expect you to contact me back.

I visited this store on 8/1 and I must say the wine steward name Rita is one of the most disrespectful unprofessional people I’ve met in a long time. She was very rude and condescending towards me. She yelled at me at the top of her lungs in front of staff and customers alike. I would not shop or visit this store to save my life. The employees are a reflection of the experience you will have while visiting businesses.They can improve the image of a business or greatly affect a consumer’s experience. Although I’m sure her less than desirable attitude does not reflect on the company as a whole. However, I’m afraid Kroger need to offer up customer service training to its staff members to avoid unruly employees like Rita. I don’t need my local grocery store wine steward to verbally abuse me, that’s okay I elect to shop elsewhere to avoid people that are obviously unhappy with their lives and job.

Dear Kroger Executives,
Today Sunday August 2nd my family and I stopped into Kroger at Barracks Road in Charlottesville VA to pick up our weekly groceries. Arriving at the check out line with a full cart, two restless children 2&4 and a beautiful wife who is 7 months pregnant, I quickly realize that no one is bagging groceries. $120.00 later and having to bag my own groceries, I turn to see two employees sitting there watching me wrapping up the bagging process and my beautiful wife keeping the kids under control. While leaving the store, the customer service representative Kathy, doing her best to pretend she was helping bag a four item order continued to stare at me. At this point I politely mentioned to her I did not appreciate her staring at me and my family all the while I bagged my own groceries for a $120.00. At this point she rolled her eyes, gave me a childish face and told me to have a nice day. After putting the groceries in the car, I decided to ask to speak to the manager on duty, Tom Shepherd. Tom, listened to my concerns and barely could muster up an apology for the non existent customer service and basically told me to have a nice day. Because of the non existent customer service, it will be hard for me to continue shopping with Kroger or Harris Teeter. Each month at Kroger Alone, we spend 400.00, roughly $4800.00 a year. With that being said, I am sure Foods of All Nations, Food Lion and Fresh Market will gladly accept my business and provide customer service. Not to mention, all three of those stores are extremely clean.

Thank you in advance for your timely response.

1. Go to the store, explain what’s happened.
2. Call the VISA # on the back of the card, it will give you a rundown of your purchases.
3. They can do the math and see that the $$ has been messed up.
4. If the store won’t fix it, call the corporate and POLITELY DESCRIBE what’s happened. (both for VISA and Kroger).
5. A solution should resume from this; harping on some blog won’t help you. this means you’re sitting with your nose in a screen instead of facing how to solve the issue.

i have a problem. my wife works at krogers. Two weeks ago she got on the website and asked for the 10th and 11th off. the 11th is my grandfathers birthday, he had a massive heart attack just this march. so he want to all his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. so he wants to see his great granddaughter, my daughter who is 6 months old and is still breast feeding. now my grandfather lives four hours away. so what the mangers do is give her the 10th off and not the 11th. the assistant manger changes it for her. so today the manger and the main manger of the store go back and change it. telling her that they cant give her that day off because the manger didn’t give another employee off that Saturday and now he is filing a grieves letter. Now they wont give her the day off so that mangers don’t get in trouble. they have told her that if she don’t show up they were going to write her up.

I heard that some House members of our government are pushing for a measure that would ban meat producers from including country-of-origin information regarding their products. I personally don’t care if it’s a Republican or Democratic measure, but I do care that such a measure will pass the Congress and Senate and take away my choice to decide. I don’t know how they can justify such a measure but I believe it hurts consumers who want to be able to choose to buy meat from a foreign county or buy local. I don’t believe Washington will listen to me but I do believe they will listen to a corporation as big as Kroger. I ask that Kroger publically demand that all of the meat sold in their stores and subsidiaries have the county of origin on the front label. Personally, I have recently changed my diet and because of that I have made better choices in what I eat and what I purchase. If I choose to eat meat from China or refuse to eat meat from China, then that is my choice. I don’t like the meat industry making that choice for me

I was very disappointed. Also we have a lot of handicapp people that need to use the special ridding carts they use to 8 of them now they are down to one it makes it very inconvenient and hard on the customers I have talk to a lot of them and they are saying that if nothing is done they will have go out of their way &Go to another store please help us and get us some more riding carts please.

I am a Kroger customer. I have been a customer for many years. I came into store #375 at 1131 pm on the 29th of May and I was thoroughly disappointed. I had at least 150.00 worth of groceries in my cart only to get up to the register and discover that there were no lanes open. The only 2 lines that were open were self check out lines. There were at least 20 customers waiting. That is absolutely ridiculous. There was a stock person standing off to the side complaining and stating multiple times that he was ready to clock out. I have never seen such. Why were their no lines open to accomodate the people who had more than 10 items? I should not have had to ring up 48 items in the self check out lane. I am very upset. This makes me not want to shop at Kroger.

Saturday at approx. 5:50pm I had a fall in your parking lot. I do not want to put everything in this e mail but I will say this I was transported to the er by ambulance. My daughter ran inside to get help the security guard came out side looking stupid and lied I am going to get the manager. Thanks alot nobody never came. Blood was running from my leg like running water. Kroger you have taught me that you DO NOT GIVE A DARN ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMERS ALL YOU WANT IS OUR MONEY. There is more to this, this is a shame to the FRAYSER COMMUNITY. Please Respond!!!!!!!!!!

I also had a fall inside the store recently on sour cream that was on an aisle. An employee witnessed it and instead of them helping me up , they ran to get caution cones and I slipped on stuff again in the process of getting up . I injured my hip. leg and pulled muscles from hanging on to cart during fall. I reported it because I was in pain and wanted to know why employee didnt assist me and needed help to get to my car. After weeks of not hearing from them i contacted lawyer who wanted me to make a huge law suit out of it and I declined because I felt like kroger insurance and I could work together on it and I could atleast get my 3000$ nedical bills pd from it. I am in the process of talking to their investagators and it has been a veru unpleasant experience to say the least. Ni good deed goes unpunished thats for sure. I thought Id save everyone money by leaving lawyers out of it and them make it right with me. Video evidence and employee statement s should be enough to show they are liable for my unforrunate accident. Boy was I wrong. I thought these money hungry abulance chasing lawyers shouldnt benifiet for my pain and suffering by getting half of what kroger insurance should respectfully pay and even apologize for my misfortune that occured during my shopping experience with them. So I declined their services and have spoke to krogers investagators several times who only try to discredit and get information that they can use against me to say, ” We, Kroger are not liable for your fall and we dont pay hospital bills”. I am so upset that that shopping trip cist me 3,000$ and i didnt get any food. I got a messed up hip. back and leg that took a month or more to recover. I know now why people are constantly suing people because people dont want to pay or take responsibility for things that they are responsible and liable for. That employee could have helped me up and kept me from falling again. He even left the area leaving it open for next customer to fall on. Im not tryung to get rich. I was so embarrassed and now humiliated for thinking I could or would be treated descent and fairly by krogers insurance company. Now im suffering from mental distress by this waiting of the investagators to complete their investagation on if they can get out of paying me anything . They are sovrude on phone and interrupt me whenever i try to say things like.,” employee at customer service desk said out loud I knew he should have gotten that up sooner.” One even replied to me that it was not the employees responsibility to help me up. His job was to go get a manager?????? Excuse me. Well I beleive if he had of helped me I wouldnt have slipped the second time which.probally caused me more injury. I just want kroger to work with me and be fair instead of making me feel like im the one who should be ashamed for reporting my fall to them in the first place and thats not the case. I could have obtained motley and associates who wrote me 20 letters andceven came to my home wanting me to sign a contract with them so they could rack up on my pain and suffering and all the inconveniences its cost me. And I just wanted kroger to help me honestly and fairly. Im waiting to hear from them and by how they talk to me Im afraid the outcome when they get back with me wont be a good one.. If anyone from kroger with any authority to help me. please feel free to. My email is kimb*****@gmail.com

I just want to say I have lived and worked in Auburn, Alabama for almost 20 years. I have been shopping at Kroger that long also. Recently I have had some very bad customer service and almost sarcasm from some employees. Pam form the Auburn Kroger cannot understand English, but is smart with her body language and head shaking. Stephanie at the Opelika Kroger is slow and untrained and Mary Clark one of the front managers at the Opelika store is rude and quick with her mouth and demeanor and she also finds it difficult to add and subtract. I believe I will either move or drive to Atlanta from now on to buy groceries. Thanks Kroger for you crappie customer service.

However, after filing complaint at store & spoke w/ a RUDE, HATEFUL WOMAN BY THE NAME DELSIA HIGHLY WHO WAS QUITE NICE @ 1ST THEN before I had a chance to heal from spinal surgery she comes at me with the offer of a $100 Kroger forward. Now,yes I have insurance that covers most and at the time I asked for $400-$600 for the fall and money I put into Dr but now I have more problems that may be from a result of the fall. I’M Upset that she NOT ONLY HAS AN ATTITUDE PROBLEM (and that probably helps in her area )but to offer a $100 for my inconvenience is an INSULT! I FOUND BUGS INSIDE MY BLUEBERRIES &WAS GIVEN A $25 FORWARD. Now,I will inform my attorney of the disrespect I received from the Kroger company and give the audio tape I did record. I’M NOT TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY FALL… I’M MERELY ASKING FOR BASIC RESPECT THAT SHE (DELSIA HUGHLEY )HAS FAILED TO GIVE AND to state that I’m willing to work with ANYONE ELSE ABOUT MY CLAIM.. PLEASE CALL ME AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT REGARDING MY CLAIM. THANK-YOU FOR YOUR TIME & I HOPE SOMETHING IS DONE TO HELP MS.Hughley get a better view of her job rather than LIE & SPEAK WITH A RUDE & HATEFUL TONE & VOICE.

Dear Sir: I sent the following letter with my new method for carrying out grocery bags in those thermoplastic bags which makes it much easier and simpler for customers who may be in a hurry as they would not have to push the shopping cart out to off load it, push it to where carts are staged and if it is raining an even better reason for using it. The way it is designed is in addition to those mentioned in the letter is that Ergonomics was factored into the design as it is round as opposed to any other form which makes it easier to carry.as it fits the form of the human hand. If possible would like to make about 10 of them to make a test to give to any customer willing to use one to determine customer satisfaction which is my goal as a satisfied customer always comes back and if the customer approves of the idea you can say that it is “customer approved. When I approached one of the lady managers,in the ColiervilleTN. store I did not , unfortunately get her name, however if I see her in the store I will know her. This manager agreed with me on the idea that such an idea would be a good one as at that time I had not made any and would make customers satisfied and happy thus keeping your customer base and even possible increase it. This will, at the same time keep more profit in the plus column then in the debit column. If you were to allow me I would make about ten of them I would gladly do so. There is an old saying in German that says “Probiern geht uber studiern” which translated says: “Trying is better than book studying the problem”..

Re. New Product:
Dear Sir:
I am sending you a new product which I call the “PORTA-BAG-TOTE” (Patent Pending) which will provide your company with the following financial benefits for your company.
1. It can keep more shopping karts in the store as opposed to having an employee having to go to the parking lot to get them back in the store. At the Colliervile TN. Store it would mean an average savings of approximately $1.02 per hour for their employee to bring a cart back to the store for customers to use.
2. For your store the cost of the small tool is approximately $1.90 each for every !000 units and you when you sell one to a customer for whatever price you make a little profit here also.
3. If you give each customer a savings of .01 on gas purchase if they use it they will be more than glad to use it.
4. When two customers leave the store and Customer A who does not have the tool stands in the rain to unload his shopping cart. Customer “B” who uses the tool goes to his car and after putting the purchase in his vehicle leave and does not stand in the rain.
5. Safe. Easy to use,
6. Fits easily in ladies purse or pants pocket,
7. NEVER WEAR OUT,
8. CAN CARRY AS MANY BAGS AS THE PERSON CAN CARRRY

I live on a pension so the package was all done by me and not by a professional. I tried to make clear as possible what it will do for both your company and your customers. If you decide to purchase it I will have the package done up by professionals. It is presently patent pending which I felt necessary above all things for my protection. My phone number and email address are above.
Thank You

Harold G. Jordening

I have worked at a Smith’s 123 for a little over two years. My job offers great pay and decent benefits for the area. I have no complaints there. I do however find some things that go on in the store quite shocking. The lead customer service manager is highly rude and unprofessional. He constantly puts employees down and berate them in front of customers, makes inappropriate comments to female employees and customers alike, and when he has a disagreement with some one offers retaliation in cutting they’re hours available to work. While the store director and every other upper management has been made aware of this by employees and customers alike, and even corporate office nothing has been done. In the last year we have had two employees quit and these are employees who have been there upwards of years not a few months. My question to you corporate is where does this stop!? He has been in this position for 10 years and will continue to do so unless you do something. The store director had made it obvious this kind of behavior is tolerated and should not be. It’s makes sense to want to have happy employees in a good work environment so that customer service is our main priority but from the looks of things that is the least of most managements concerns.

I have called the 1800# and only received a no-hearted apology for the indignity.
1. Manager Patel refused to meet with me.
2. Cashiers refused to let me add on $50 to my Kroger gift card by my personal check, in order to purchase Kroger gas. BUT after 1 hour and 45 minutes cashed my personal check for $50 and then placed the $50 cash I received from my personal check onto the gift card.
Cashiers Veronica, Tammy & Jay told me the manager was unavailable and there was nothing I could do to resolve the problem.
I filled out 3 complaints Re: Your Comments (#20577552) (2)

I worked at Kroger# 400 for 8 months, never late or written up. Several weeks ago suddenly everything went sour, conversation about not wanting anymore white people working in the deli to be put in the walk-in cooler door being shut and held close with the lights out. This is NOT SAFE, uncalled for. I reported it to a store manager Mr. Scott and and both deli managers and nothing was done about it. That was not funny or being professional employees. Not only that but having to pull a float of chicken across the floor of the sales floor that is to the department to go to, and pick up those boxes by yourself and put into the cooler, with NO ONE wanting to HELP!!!! To top that I got screamed at things snatched from me things slanged around, all because the dept. manager was mad and wanted me out. what other reason did she have for this behavior. She is not management material the only time she really care to help and do anything was when she saw the store manager Billy Chappell coming. This store manager is a lost cause too, He is always putting his hands on women whether they are employees or customers, this is totally UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!! Store # 400 needs some cleaning up action taken.

After reading many comments posted by others, I must say that I will not wait for a resolution concerning the matter. However, I will share my incident in efforts to prevent others from being subjected.

Kroger Store #238 at 6749 Airline in Houston, Texas 77076, has a cashier by the name of Monique who lacks a great degree of professionalism and customer service skills. Not only did she not give any type of greeting, make any direct eye contact or give a total of my purchase. She proceeded to reluctantly answer my question about the total with a mumble and immediately picked up her cell phone to begin texting before my transaction was final. Monique’s body language initially appeared as though she had a dislike for police officers because once I stepped forward to check out, her eyes quickly moved towards the direction of the ceiling and was followed by a poor attitude.

I then proceeded to the exit but turned to watch her behavior with other customers. I must say that it was “NOT” indeed the uniform that I was wearing. However, Monique was simply another typical unhappy person in the world who lacks a great deal of order, discipline, respect for others and pride in their performance. I began to wonder about the type of training which might or might not be provided to these community serving employees. Immediately after that thought I said myself, never mind; I will simply return to shopping at Whole Food Market where the cost of the items are worth the great customer service and delightful shopping experience.

Best wishes to you Kroger Stores, may your reputation cease from declining and may you one day actually take note of these posting from dissatisfied customers and employees. After all, “MANY OF US ARE TAKING NOTE”. And to you Monique the cashier may you one day better yourself so that you can gain and contribute more to society because at the rate you stand today, you are poorly failing.

You built one of the largest super stores in Kentucky at Shelbyville, KY, it has to be one of the worst Krogers I have ever shopped at. Constantly out of items, shelves empty, Carts scatterd all over the parking lot damanging cars with dents. Parking lot carts only monitored by the handicap. Although I think it’s very important to hire the handicap sometimes they must be help also. I have tried to hold my concerns thinking things would get better but they have gotten worst. I think new GOOD management could help the situation. Untl then I must consider shopping elsewhere.

I worked for kroger1.75 years I asked for several different openings within the store. They kept me as a dishwasher(courtesy clerk). Yes it was a ligite discrimination case. The things that went on in that store was unreal. The store manager was always asking, when can I cook super for him… ? I was bullied, overworked (picking up cases of chickens, 45lb up to 40 cases or more /order). Now I have a bulging disk in my neck and back. I left krogerr weighing 126lbs. My normal weight was 143lbs. I can’t tell everything, but Kroger corporation really surprised me. I can’t believe they changed my file. People the Eeco was down with it. Snake in the grass. Never trust the people at the top unless it’s god. (I’m writing a book about everything that happen to me). You want believe it. I have lost all respect for Kroger corporate. I was so naive. Even one manager called me a “Dumb bitch”. “. “HOW COULD YOU FALSIFY MY RECORDS? ?” Tell me!!!!! Rome,ga. Kroger turner McCall

Cry me a river! Sounds to me like you don’t use proper lifting techniques, otherwise you wouldn’t have a “bulging disk”. I would also advise against writing a book until you actually can articulate a sentence. And if a joking manager is being bullied then maybe you should hold off on trying to get a book published you illiterate fuck! GO KROGER!!

ever, I was trying to purchase baby dippers because they were on sale when I came up to the register the cashier start talking to the cashiers next to her saying u need to call the store manager,,, I ask her is something wrong she didn’t answer, when the store manager came up to the register she toll me let me see your coupons. I will not sell u all this packets , I ask her why I’f every body buy them like that,, she said I can only do 1 transaction per customer, I was really up set.i told her this is the 1st time I heard something like that but ok .I didn’t not argued with her, she told one of the employees to put the rest of the pamper back in the shelf laughing obout me, with the employee, because she didn’t whant to sale them to me, I gave her my coupons and 2 of my kroger coupon to help pay my purchase, when I pay the machine printed out 2 more coupons of $10 each she was surprise she refused to gave me both of my catalinas.I got upset and told her those are catalinas that my kroger card print out for me so I whant both of them, she said the sale does not work like that Iso only 1 coupon per transaction. I told her well u have a problems with your system, that u need to fix,,, but those are my catalinas that I got for my purchase.she was really ugly with me, for her to be the store manager she treated me like a pice of crab. that was really embarrassing to be treaded like that infont of other customers…to me she was being racist, ,,, I see white people and black people doing there purchase with out a problem….

I have been a loyalty member since its inception. I shop every week at Kroger at 23 Mile Shelby Township Michigan and also at the 26 Mile Road store. Ever since loyalty program began, I have had the option on my receipt to take the survey for the 50 extra points towards fuel purchase. However, on my last two receipts there was no option to take the survey. After calling both the store and corporate and expressing my concern, I was told that customers are randomly selected to take the survey. I have never NOT had the option on any of my receipts. I spend a lot of money at Kroger each month and am quite upset about this. How are customers selected at random? On what do you base who is eligible for selection and who is not? This seems discriminating to me. I have always given a favorable response to the survey and shop at Kroger for the fuel points as we have many vehicles to fill every week. It seems that no one I have spoken to can give me a legitimate answer to my question. If this being the case, where all of a sudden customers are randomly selected for the survey, then I can spend my hard earned money at a competitor and receive their benefits for shopping at their stores and not be randomly selected and benefit from their perks. Shame on you Kroger. Maybe Mr. Rodney McMullen your CEO should know about this.. Kroger, you have lost a valuable customer.. In todays market, there is much competition and I will choose to go elsewhere!..

I’m a customer at your Oak Lawn Kroger. I recently purchased 2 boxes of broth to make soup for my sick daughter. I drove home and found that both boxes had been opened previously. This was disturbing. I didn’t want to find out later that I had ingested a dangerous substance or that someone else might have done the same. I phoned the store manager and asked her to pls check her stock for other open containers. I told her that I wanted to use the broth today but I didn’t (couldn’t) drive back to the store that day.
When I returned the items to Customer Service the employee (Lawanda) was talking and laughing on the phone. She used hand signals to communicate with me. Never hung up the phone. When the transaction was complete I told her that when she got off the phone I would like to explain my issue. She didn’t show me the courtesy of hanging up, but instead put the phone to her chest and was frustrated to have to listen to me. I wanted to ask her not to put those open broths back on the shelf. She was more interested in getting back to her phone call. I’ll shop at Alberstons going forward since it is the same distance from my home. I’ve owned companies and I would want to know how my employees are treating the customers.

I am a long time customer of Krogers in Shreveport, La., located at 6652 Youree Dr.. I visited the store today after 200pm to purchase a few items. Upon returning to my suv, I observed a krogers buggy against my drivers side door.
I removed the buggy from my door and observed damage of 2 scratches that were not there before i went inside of the store.I returned in the store and spoke with a mangager by the name of Katherine Pate and informed her of the issue with the damage to my suv. Ms. Pate expressed that the store, Krogers was not responsible for loose carts on the parking lot, unless one of their employees, pushed the buggy into my truck. I expressed that I did not agree, and that I felt that Krogers should take care of the damage to my suv drivers side door, due to the unattended buggy. There was no reply after that, so i left the store so as not to cause an argument. I just arrived home and am now filing this complaint online
Thank you in advance for addressing this matter.

On Saturday, January 3, 2015 I called in on the refill line for 1 of my meds which I did have 1 refill left on it. I wasn’t physically able to go and pick it up from the Kroger Pharmacy at 1700 Monroe Dr. Ansley Mall, Atlanta, Ga. so I asked a friend of mine to pick it up on Monday, January 5, 2015. Later on I got it out of the bag to take one, and the med which I requested wasn’t there at all, another one was. When I called the pharmacy a man answered, so I told him what the problem was. He looked on the computer, then informed me that I did not have any refills on it, I said yes I do, he was argumentative with me. After I proved to him I was right he said I could pick it up the next day.I told him I would report it immediately to the corporate office/complaints dept. In about 5 minutes I received the automated call telling me that my medicine was ready for pickup. It then was 6:50 pm & the pharmacy closes at 7:00 pm. I have explained to the manager and other employees there that I rely on Marta, ( I have no vehicle ) so when I make a trip there for my medicines I am quite upset when I have to go back another time, because of their negligence. They should be more conscientious about what they do, and doublecheck the bag before it leaves the pharmacy.Please contact me asap re: this issue because it has happened several times in the past.

Our Facility purchases Kroger gift cards, for all Employees (based on their years of service). I went into Kroger (Lancaster, OH) and purchased 29 gift cards (totaling over $700). Each were in increments of $30, $25, $20, $15. The 1 card for $25 rang up as $125 vs $25; which I didn’t catch at the time. When I went back into Kroger, the next day, they wouldn’t even consider fixing. The Manager wouldn’t even come out to talk to me. An error, by one of their Employees, and you can’t even talk to the Customer? We have over 1200 Employees, at our Facility, all of whom receive Kroger gift cards. Customers are our #1 priority, you might want to consider the same (since you too rely on your Customers, for the success of your company). Thank you for your time…

I am writing to give kudos to your store. I had a medical incident recently at the check-out counter and received immediate attention from your store manager Bill, Terri and Jose. He personally walked me to my car and stayed with me and staff stored my groceries in a cool room until I recovered. Your staff is amazing, outstanding, gracious and caring!

Your pharmacy department of Jen, Steve, Brad, Antonette, Sheila, and are friendly and courteous. They go out of their way to explain conditions making me feel secure and healthy. They place orders from my doctor as a priority which I really appreciate.

To David B Million CEO, Kroger Corporation, I understand why your Pharmacies have taken the position of not sharing availability of certainMedication over the phone, but Sir They as well as yourself need to understand that all of your customers are not thieves or Addicts that wish to rob the pharmacy.
It would be appreciated if you could inform your Pharmacist & their Staff to release availability information to it’s customers/Patients that r in their system as having had that Medication filled @ Kroger pharmacy in the past. Some people as myself are disabled & living on fixed income, some don’t have transportation to run al over town to try & find a Kroger with their meds. Instock.

The company that hauls the product for Dillons have junk trailers that put the product in jeopardy and the health of the public. I know because i drove for them. The money to be used for maintenance isn’t being use for fixing the trailers they have. They cannibalize other junk trailers to quick fix. Doors come open going down the road getting product dirty or the refrigeration units don’t operate properly causing the product to be out of recommended temperature. I just think some investigating needs to be done as to where the money is going for maintenance, someone at dillons is getting a fat pocket.

I am very disappointed. I purchased about $200 worth of phone cards for our company employees from Costa Rica. We give the cards out for them to call home while here in the states. I gave five cards out to five different individuals, all of them said the cards do not work. I preceded to take them back to the store and the store manager and the customer service manager informed me that there was nothing they could do to help me. I bought these cards with a Visa card, had all the receipts and they still could not help me. This is very unacceptable. Your commercials say that customer satisfaction is your first priority which is not true. Basically the managers I spoke to said its not my problem. Store manager at 034 Kroger #300, 1950 El Dorado, Houston TX 77062. I do not know what to do with these cards they do not work and we are out $200.00. Not a very good impression of your commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

On 12/2/2014 I launched an ethics complaint with the general manager Ms.Maureen Asburry and with an deli service worker David Richardson. All of this was done online. On 12/5/14 I received a certified letter stating me nor my husband would be allowed in or near the store due to “Threatening and Disruptive” behavior on 12/4/14. My husband nor I entered the store on that day. The only day we were in the store was 12/1/14 in which we purchased our items and left( the cameras will show this). I feel this is in direct connection with the complaint. This effects my shopping, my prescriptions as well as my gas mileage. If this is not resolved I will seek legal counsel for discrimination and demand proof of this “threatening and disruptive behavior. I also have concrete proof to back up each complaint and have talked to legal counsel.

Your store here in Humble, TX had an add in the paper that read Tamales 5 for $5.00 Pork or Chicken so I read this to mean you get 5 packages for $5.00 dollars as any person would mean that to be that you get 5 packages for $5.00, so I was charged $25.00 for five packages and didn’t notice it until I got home so I went back to the store to get my money back that I overpaid and was told that this was not the case that each package was $5.00, I could have bought these cheaper at another place as I have bought these before and I think the add was misrepresented to the public, and I wonder how many customers thought the same as me and found out after the fact that this wasn’t the way it was supposed to be that it read 1.3ozI the deli. I live on social security and $20.00 is very important to me I have ben very loyal customer to your store here in Humble, but after this I’m really going to have to think this over about staying as a Kroger customer.

As a former 8yr employee with Kroger, I can honestly say that the Kroger I first hired with and was proud to work for vs the Kroger now, they have come to the point that they couldn’t care less about their employees. If you want to know why your customer service basically stinks… investigate how your employees are being treated by your store managers and CSMs! I went through a MAJOR surgery and then developed a post-op abscess which left me unable to care for myself and my boyfriend (of five years) had to miss work to take care of me since I have no family here. Even though my surgeon personally faxed a letter to the store stating such, he was bumped to part-time, had his pay cut by nearly $3/hr, and is being harassed by the store manager who refused to let him have the union Stewart of his choice come with him when he called my boyfriend into the office to accuse him of lying about the reason he missed work- even though he has the note from my surgeon! He was also told to work off the clock doing payroll errors the same day! To top the day of, he was reprimanded by the CSM after being called to the office because 1+1 wasn’t good while running the floor last week when every day during primetime, baggers and cashiers were pulled BY MANAGEMENT to do other work! This is wrong Kroger!! We’re contacting an attorney!!

I am very disappointed and thought you actually cared about your customers. I wrote a comment about my “on going” experiences at my local Kroger on HWY. 278 IN Covington, Georgia two weeks ago and no still reponse. I’m amazed that you have not visited this store and also shocked that you would tie your name to it. It’s puzzling that I travel and sometimes shop at the Kroger Loganville, Georgia. This is very nice store with “very large” billboard which states that “we’ll make it right”, clearly not a moto for Covington.

Kroger: I used to have respect for your company and shop their on weekly for all my grocery needs, NOT ANY MORE. You have ruined the life of a friend of mine. He is more than a friend, he is kind, trustworthy and very dependable. He helped me for years in my Karaoke Business , attends our church and goes along with me when I use my singing ministry at the nursing homes. His only problem is he is gullible and has a hard time talking with people in general, mainly girls. One day at work a fellow employee told him of a couple web sites where he could meet up with girls. When doing so he ended up in a sting situation, his picture was plastered on the news and in the paper and he was suspended from his employment of 14 years at Kroger. I can understand the suspension but the suspension never ended. This all happened in June and he just now found out here in October that his job was terminated and only then when he went in the store to find out why he was not yet on the schedule. To make matters worse his union representative has been telling him all along not to worry that he will back to work soon that it was not a felony and he would be back to work. A few weeks ago he got a letter that said he abandoned his job and it had a check with it. When he asked his union rep about it he was told that the letter was a mistake and not to worry. How messed up is that . I feel the real reason for his termination is not because of what he did but because since he was full time the benefits he was getting and it would be cheaper for the company to hire part time workers. You can replace an employee but you cannot replace a life and his has been ruined by Kroger. My question is Where is the union? As far as I am concerned they should at least pay him back all the dues he paid all of those years. Another question : Kroger Where is your compassion? Not everyone was born with the capability of sticking up for themselves, yes he made a mistake but you are not even taking into account all his years of good work and devotion to your company. This kind of treatment has to STOP. I am urging everyone that reads this article to think before shopping at Kroger. Their ethics when it comes to employment are messed up and besides that their competitors are just around the corner. I know I am just one person , a little fish in a huge pond but change has to start somewhere. I am not saying that what my friend did was right by any means but it certainly was not wrong enough for the consequences suffered.
I would appreciate your comments.

If your friend was caught in a sting it must have been for under aged girls or else he wouldn’t have been on the news there is no sting for men meeting “women” on the Internet. I think he may not be the only one who is gullible.

On my lunch break I went into Kroger on 150 W Lowry Ln. #190 to use the restroom. I searched for the RR until i found it in the very back corner of the store. There was 1 restroom in the entire store and had a male/female sign. After entering, I noticed the 1 toilet was covered in urine so i had to clean it myself before sitting down. After a couple minutes into my bowel movement, the store plays a laxative commercial over the intercom ( I thought was a coincidence) The commercial plays on for about 90 seconds and I realize its some kind of Prank. It says something like ” pick up your Laxative! in the Laxative isle!” Laxative isle?? when leaving the RR i notice a about 4 people standing around laughing, 1 of them being an employee. I wanted to speak with a manager but was so embarrassed i could only rush to get out of the store. I’ll never go into this Kroger again.

DEAR KROGER,
SEVERAL DAYS AGO I PURCHASED A PACKAGE OF BEAR CREEK COUNTRY KITCHENS, CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP, FROM THE KROGER ON FIVE FORKS TRICKUM ROAD IN LAWRENCEVILLE, GA.
I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE SOUP. THE DRIED VEGETABLES WERE STILL VERY DRY EVEN AFTER COOKING THEM TWICE AS LONG AS THE DIRECTIONS CALLED FOR. I CAN NOT RETURN THEM NOW AS THE PACKAGE HAS BEEN OPENED AND THE CONTENTS COOKED FOR SOME TIME.

I TRIED TO REACH THEIR CORPORATE OFFICE BUT COULD NOT FIND A CUSTOMER SERVICE TO LEAVE A MESSAGE WITH.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. I AM NOT ASKING FOR YOU TO TAKE ANY ACTION.
I WILL NOT BVERSTREETUY A BREAR CREEK COUNTY KITCHENS AGAIN.

After trying for two months to get the Kroger on Dover Rd in Clarksville TN to replace the wheelchair/with basket that had supposedly been stolen and/or broken, I contacted corporate offices. My disabled friend has been shopping there for many years spending much money but she cant walk very well and cant see well enough to use electric chairs. I was shopping across town at a different Kroger since they had the wheelchair. She wanted a flu shot but found out that we would have to go back to Dover location because they were out of her needed dose. Someone named Lisa contacted me from your corporate offices while we were shopping. I began to tell her my frustrations with the wheelchair but she kept interrupting me. Now, please have your corporate contacts use better listening skills and not try to be controlling in a customers comments. After visiting one Kroger to find out there was again no wheelchair, then driving across town to another Kroger, then to find out I would have to go back to the original one for the flu shot, I was already frustrated enough! My friend may continue to shop at Kroger, but I am not sure I will.

I am proud of my hometown of Cincinnati and Krogers who today helped defend the Constitution by not backing down from the gun-control bullies who tried a deceptive tactic to intimidate Krogers gun control policies! I am a customer for life and I once did a report on Barney Kroger in school. Keep up the great work!

ThThiLaGrange Kroger market is very clean and maintained, however one employee is continually casting a dark cloud of , in my opinion very rude and argumentative. I have personally complained once after a year of overlooking her rudeness and utterly poor and distasteful lack of professionalism. I was told she had mounted up several complaints. She’s still there. Tonight, again demonstrating a complete disrespect if a paying customer. I cool off and contact the store manager who had two loud employees he was unable to to silence for a buisness call so I politely paused and stated I would call back at a later time that was convenient for him.

Whether its “Miss Kath’s” cheerfulness, David’s helpfulness or Danny helping me get my 91yr old mother to my car after getting her flu shot today I am so grateful to have a place like this to shop. Thanks Kroger for being a quality store with exceptional costumer service.

Dear sir or madam, We moved to Coldwater , MS in 1991. Until then we lived in Memphis ,TN. We were not far from a Krogers store. We loved the prices, the selections, and the quality of the meats. We were so disappointed when we found out that the nearest one to us is in Southaven or Hornlake/Olive Branch MS. There was a Piggly Wiggly in Coldwater, but not nearly the quality of your stores. It was the only grocery store in the entire town. It has changed hands a few times and the last owners shut it down a couple of years ago. We have since been driving around 13 miles into Senatobia, MS to do our shopping. There are two groceries there, Kay’sFoods and Wal-Marts neither one of which has the quality of a Krogers. I know we are a small town but maybe your R and D department could look into the possibility of opening a store either in Coldwater or Senatobia. Thank you for your time in this matter. Mrs. Cubbins

I work for city market (Kroger)for almost 28yrs! When a man in came in with. a store couponthat said if you spend $50 in the store you will receive 200 bonus fuel points. I thought that in it self was kind of odd ,but it was a coupon that you should have to scan only once it is supposed to scan once ,but I always hand it back in case it does not take the first time .I went to hand it back but he was already gone .So I throw the coupon a way. I should have wish left it there,but no I went ahead and got it out of the trash! I thought why did this guy have gotten one!So I continued to scan the coupon just thinking thinking what would if they left there coupon at home ! Pam ask what I was doing so told her she told me that I should not be doing that! I said I did not know ,I thought I stopped .But I did not stop I used it one other person named Terry a CRM I told her that I had a coupon like this ,I asked her if she wanted to use it on her she said yes .It was the next day she came in and ask whats 200 fuel points was all about she know what about how she got them. That’s when I head Sandra say in a loud voice say that’s how we caught you! So had did she know before hand continued .my job checking. That is how come I knew that I might have been set up Sheknews my heart willing to help people out!When the investigator came in I thought it was the same man who gave me the coupon in the first place e He ask me about the coupon I toldhim what I had being doing , I told him the truth .He said it was not like I stole a truck load of steaks , we both started to laugh .when we though I went and started to finish my thinking nothing was wrong ! When I came in the next day I was told to go in and talk Stain so I did ,that’s when he told me that I was on suspension for a week ! When I came for my next shift a week later I was told that I was fired the union Stewart and I were both in shock she did not think I would by fired !I think to week would by good enough but no I was fired . Then a few days later I called Kroger main office they told me that they never printed a coupon like that .So that is why I think that is why I I was set up . I was told that they never printed a coupon like that , so how did I get one !! Stain will say they will say most of this is not true

I was just laying in bed thinking about how they treated me at city market ! I know it started with Pat Mora I remember that I wrestled him back in high school ,messed up his knee ,I think he would have been a state champion .He was a poor sport back then he must hold on to grudge for a long time! Because I wrestled him when I was a 10 grader and he was senior ! I was in the 10 grade in 1982 ! That was about over 20 years ago he still has grudge on me. When I use to worked for him as a store manager we use to call him Patricia Marion !Me and Gary use to laugh and laugh !But he had me almost in tears when I left his store he demoted to carry out , but luckily I had a friend named Brad Rush he said for me to come work for me !
Then came Chris Bearkat he took me out of produce which I loved back to the front end as a checker which I hated .Because he know I would most likly mess up there,and I did , a long time after he left .I know that if you were to look in my city market file , there was not a lot in there before Pat Mora and Chris Bearkat came into play and finely Stain Blair he put the finale nail in my coffin ! He got me with a fake store coupon that said if you bought $50. Of groceries you.will receive an extra 200 fuel points. Who ever heard of such a thing ! But stupid me I went and scanned for about 117 people trying to help my custmers out , knowing how much gas was back then! They first suspended me for a week then fired me ! With out giving me warning I know I was wrong for taking it on my own I do not know if it was do to my head injury which I had a TBI six concoctions or my cardeact arrest.my heart stopped three times went with out oxygen three times .I do not think that I would have done it if I would not have my disabilties ! After all I did not gain a thing!

I want you guys to ask the same question to people who make the coupons for your self and let me know!
I have never had done this sort of thing in 28’s . I think Stain went to hard on me first suspended me for a week them firing me ! With out warning me first they wanted me to scan the coupon over and over until they had no choice but to fire me.

Nothing was worth spending money on. Now I have to go to Meijers who still carry good brands and get the food too. Why fix what was working???

On August 25 I was in your Chi received any chllicothe ohio bridge street store and as I was pushing my cart up to the meat counter, I suddenly found myself on the floor with my cart coming down on me. Came to discover as I was getting soaked that there was water coming up out of one of the drains and quickly covering the floor. The water was not visible and no signs were posted. Shortly after I fell a couple of customers came over to help me , one of them being an off duty cashier. A manager came over and immediately took steps to get the water cleaned up, however at no time did anyone ask if I was ok or needed medical assistance. I got up on my own and was shaken up but managed to get my cart and groceries, with customer assistance. I had to ask for paper towels so I could dry off. I turned my cart and went to the checkout so I could pay and leave. As I reached my vehicle the manager ran out to get my name. I had already decided to do an incident report. I received a call from your claims department and told them I was sore and bruised. The gentleman said he would call me back that Friday the 29th…I have heard nothing. I am thankful I did not break anything or get hurt worse. The bruises are gone but the pain in my left side continues. I can’t attribute that entirely to my fall, but it didn’t help. I am however, disappointed that I have not received any followup call or apology from Kroger.

Disappointing service in the pharmacy at the Graceland store in Cilumbus. First day – not enough of the drug to fill prescription. Rx promised for next day. Second day – phoned the store to make sure the Rx would be ready; I was told it would be ready when I come in to store. Rx not only wasn’t ready but now the system was down and label couldn’t be printed. They offer to call when things are fixed. I think that two trips to pick up Rx should be sufficient and had no interest in waiting yet another day. I retrieved the prescription and took it to,another pharmacy, which promptly filled it.

There are other things being taken off the shelves at your store too. I have been told that it is being taken off the shelves because no one is buying them. That is a LYE!!!! There are alot of people in Aiken Sc that are Gluten intolerant. Put the Gluten free produce back on the shelves. I have to go to Publix, Walmart, Krogers in North Augusta Sc which is a 45 min. drive. That is the DUMBEST Thing that I have to do to get Gluten free produces.

While looking over my bank statements I find that Kroger has been charging me $1.00 each gas purchase. That would tend to negate any $.03 discount and would not be worth my while anymore to spend money on grocerys when Murphy gas station at Wal Mart is only $.01 higher per gallon and many store items are less expensive.
I have discussed this with many friends and we have opted to start purchasing gas at the Wal Mart store. We appreciated the quality of fresh vegetables and meats at you store but will not purchase gas anymore. This is going to be a substantial loss per unit as I have just purchased a Motor home that holds 78 gallons of gas.
IF, something can be arranged with your stores to differ this additional cost per fillup then maybe we would consider coming back to Kroger.

Dillons was my first Job and now my wife currently works for Dillons in derby KS. I love shopping at Dillons and I will always give my money to Kroger stores before I ever step foot inside a Walmart. Recently I seen that Bloomberg is going after Kroger because the let shopper exercise their right to carry a firearm while they shop. I’m completely baffled by the ignorance of this group moms demand action. I have a concealed carry license and I carry most of the time. Everyone has the right to protect themselves. Criminals DO NOT obey signs. If you disarm people, even while they buy milk or bread criminals have nothing to fear. Nearly all the pictures in their adds are related to health code violations not to mention I have never in my life seen someone with a sporting rifle in the grocery store. I only ask this of Kroger. Please don’t be intimidated by these people please stay loyal to your customers and employees as my family and I have been loyal to Kroger.

You can take the guns from us (I am a law abiding citizen) and you will still have criminals with plenty of guns!!! That’s not very fair!! And don’t say the law has that covered, that’s BS!! It’s already a law that a convicted felon cannot own or have access to gun. How many of those criminals that have guns do you think are already convicted felons?? Probably all of them!! If you are ever put into the position that was mentioned with the little girl, you will be thankful that there was a law abiding citizen there to save lives!!!

I am a long time customer of the Kroger in LaGrange Ky. Each time I purchase meat there it is spoiled and I have to return it. Many of my neighbors are also having the same problem with meat purchases at this store.
Each time I return the spoiled meat I ask to speak to a manager only to find that they do not seem at all concerned and give the impression of oh well just some spoiled meat here is your refund for the purchase.
This has happened to me numerous times at this store. I will not purchase any meat there anymore and will take my business else where. I have also heard a lot of my neighbors and family say that they intend to start shopping somewhere else as well.
So if you live in LaGrange Kentucky please do not purchase meat from the Kroger store as they have a real problem with selling spoiled meat to their customers.

Hello,
I applied to a Loaf N Jug a month ago Aug 4, 2014, offered the job and still waiting for my “information to clear.” My manager to be Megan Smith and I have been waiting to hear from HR for a month now. That is concerning me as to why?
Today I interviewed with King Sooper and KS preformed the same posses. All my “information” cleared in less than six hours. What exactly is going on here with “Kroger”?
This was concerning for me until today because thankfully my information cleared so quick with King Sooper. check. I call this number 1-800-576-4377 and spoke to a Kim today and a Vicky the other day. I was trying to reach HR to see what was going on.
Both times the ladies told me, “HR is only for employees and you can not speak to them.” I asked Kim to give me a number or supervisor that could help my further because I obviously got a hold of the wrong number.
Both women the could not help me and bottom line, Kim refused to direct me in the right direction or give me a supervisor. Kim said she had no supervisor. She just kept repeating herself over and over until I said, ” Why are you repeating yourself”? I was told that I did not understand as if I was an idiot.
I find it very wrong and it was very frustrating tiring to get help from your customer support women, Kim.
I called King Sooper HR and got a hold of a live person, got a number for Loaf N Jug’s HR and a name of Isabell all in about 10 mins. How hard is that????
You need to speak to those customer service people at 1-800-576-4377 op#4 they were RUDE!!!!

It has come to my attention that Kroger’s policy is to allow “open carry” of guns in its stores. It has also come to my attention that many major retailers (Target, Starbucks, Costco etc.) have adopted a “no tolerance” policy on firearms in their stores. I urge you to follow the lead of these other respected businesses and change your current policy soon.
I live in Blacksburg, Virginia; home of Virginia Tech University and still the “record holder” for the worst mass shooting in the country. 33 people lost their lives on April 16th, 2007 on the campus of Va Tech, to guns that were legally purchased and registered. I do not seek to deny anyone their 2nd amendment rights, but some places in this country are not appropriate for people to carry weapons, even if they are legal owners of those weapons. I would count universities and grocery stores to be among those places.
I use the only tools I have to give weight to my opinion; my freedom of speech and the power of my purchases. Although I cannot totally avoid shopping at my local Kroger, I have already switched to buying many items from Target.
Again, I urge you to make your stores a gun free space, where all your shoppers can enjoy the Kroger experience without having to worry about the guy carrying a rifle on the next aisle.

Sincerely,

So you think that if law abiding citizens that legally own guns can’t carry them in grocery stores and universities then those places will be safe?? Say they post a sign at their entrances that says no weapons allowed, legal or otherwise…I see that sign, and as a law abiding citizen, I obey that sign. But the criminal behind me that is coming in to rob the store sees the sign…do you think he is going to turn around and walk away?? No, because he needs his gun to rob the store. Really people your arguments make no sense!!! Criminals can carry anywhere they choose to, so you can bet I’m going to carry everywhere I possibly can!!!

Kroger needs to check the bread shelfs. Either the bread is expired for it smells bad.i bought sandwichs thins .when opened it it smelled real bad and tasted bad.

I am a loyal Kroger customer. The Kroger store on 3444 Popular Avenue is a nice and beautiful store but the customer service is horrible because of this one young girl named Alexis. Everytime I go to the deli she is always on her cellphone texting and she doesn’t even acknowledge that I am standing there and when finally get her attention she acts as if I am bothering her. If it wasn’t for a older white gentleman and older black woman I would have went to another store. Why would a company like Kroger hire someone who has a don’t care attitude towards customers? PS This happened on September 1 2014 after 1:00pm

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.
Thanks,

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.

District 8 has gone down since Janice walker took over. If u don’t suck up to her then she gets rid of you. There has been so many good employees and Managers that has been fired or quit due to her. I was fired for missing 2 days of work and Janice walker knew where I was but she still had me fired. I got hurt at work last yr and Janice denied me workmanship comp. I had to use my disability claim, I have seen mgrs during drugs and go to jail but Janice walker did not fire them. I would like someone from corporate call me not the Houston office they won’t help I have tried, maybe I need to file a lawsuit. Jimmy emerine 817-721-****

I am an shopper of the Kroger store J-100 in Indianapolis, IN. I have shopped there for eight years and within the last 4 months of myself shopping there I have seen so many mice running around of the sales floor. I have told managers and store associates about the problem and the only thing I have heard is ,”we will handle it.” I have seen them (the mice) in the bread. YES IN THE BREAD! in the bags of bread eating it on the shelves. Also, I have seen them running around in the promotional aisle and over in produce. Someone needs to fix this or you will lose a lot of customers in that store. that’s disgusting!

there is rats in the one I “used” to work at in Dallas. Management does not seem to even care. Just as long as they get the big money doing absolutely nothing while people who “need” jobs suffer for where will the next pay check come.

I have been shopping at Kroger for many years. I have recently heard that this anti gun group called MOMS is demanding that Kroger ban guns in it’s stores. This is ridiculous, and Kroger should stand up and tell them that these stores erlong to Kroger and they are not going to be told what there rules will be by a group of gun grabbers. The second amendment should not be infringed upon by anyone. I always carry regardless of where I go, and have been for years, without any problems. There have been a few stores that have asked customers not to bring guns into their establishments recently, Sonic, and Target, just to name a few, and I will not be doing business with any company that doesn’t allow open carry. If Kroger joins this list then my shopping at Kroger is done. All of these gun grabbers are so blind and not very smart. If they were they would see that America needs guns no more than ever.

What is ridiculous is a person who feels the need to take a gun into a grocery store.

If you are ever in a store that doesn’t allow guns and you are just minding your own business and next thing you know you have a gun pointed right between your eyes and the person holding it there is telling the cashier to give them all the money in the drawer or this guy dies, then stop and think how ridiculous it is. Criminals carry guns anywhere they want regardless of the store policy. If you are ever in that situation, you might wish that some law abiding citizen actually had one at that point in time. Just sayin’!!!

While using the 5/3 inside Kroger’s my brand new 2014 truck was hit by a roll of carts. The employee never reported the incident, but luckily I left my kids in the car. The Kroger employee never knew that he was being watched by my seventeen year old because my windows are tinted very dark. Not sure where Kroger find their associates who handle their claims, but I’m ready to use my own insurance, which will be a way better experience. If you drive a nice vehicle don’t shop at Finney Kroger’s…. you will be sorry with their shoe box parking lot.

Dear Headquarters,

Please bring back your armed officers. I have seen what it is doing to my community and it sickens me. Columbus Police are stretched so thin, that the security company you hired has been seen doing wonderful work in the Columbus area, not just within the walls of your Kroger stores. The homeless and druggies take refuge in stores, and often try to steal from your stores and harrass shoppers. Please protect you employees and customers by paying the little extra for armed offficers. It is a shame that you would ask someone to defend your THINGS and not respect their ability to protect their LIFE. They have family to get home to. Please use the example of Patrolman Justin Conley of the Mount Orab Police Dept who was shot by a man he arrested hour prior. He was ambushed by the man, and shot. All because the officer arrested him for driving drunk. Thank heavens he had a VEST on–it saved his life.

You are a well established and popular company with 5 stores within a 10 square miles. I think you can afford the extra cost of armed guards. Let’s show the community you honor LIFE more than extra MONEY. And honestly, I don’t see how the benefits of unarmed security is outweighing the loss of merchandise via shoplifting. People are willing to stab officers over $1 drinks. This is the sad truth. For the love of God, please let your security protect themselves and others. I hope you repeal your recent decision, before someone gets seriously hurt. One person hurt or killed is just one too many. I bet your family shops at Kroger too.

Thank you

David B. Dillon
The Kroger Company
1014 Vine Street
Cincinnati, OH 45202

Dear Mr. Dillon:

First let me apologize for having to write you this letter. As you will be able to determine after reading this letter, I can gain no consideration of customer service at the store in question and my only option was to contact you.

This letter is about a set of unfortunate events that happened at Kroger Store “034 Kroger #509” located at 4901 Maple Ave., Dallas, TX 75235. I have enclosed a copy of the receipt and since this involves gift cards, the slip that Kroger provides for each gift card purchased.

Let me qualify myself as a Kroger customer. I have patronized Kroger as a child with my parents in Atlanta, then as an adult in both college and since college in Georgia, Texas and at Ralph’s in California. I have lived in Texas (this time) since 1989 and have been a loyal Kroger customer. I am a Kroger Rewards member and have been since the introduction of the card. My number is 407605 604662.

I am a meticulous record keeper and upon doing research for this letter I have learned that I have spend the following just using American Express since January 2009. The total below shows $30,571.80. I may not be Kroger’s best customer, but I am not an insignificant one, either. You can verify this by comparing my fuel points on my Kroger Rewards card. I can provide you with any level of detail you would need to also verify this.

All that qualification being stated, here is why I am writing you.

I entered the referenced Kroger store around 5pm on Friday, August 8, 2014. As usual at that hour on that day, it was quite busy. I stop at that Kroger store about the same time each Monday and Friday to make my semi-weekly grocery purchases. I made my stop on this day especially because you were have a 4X fuel points promotion and when that promotion is underway I but between $500 and $1000 in gift cards to take advantage of that promotion.

That Friday, I used the “less than 15 item” check our area for the five cards and two additional grocery items. The five cards were $100 Lowes, four $50 TJMaxx, $200 Nordstrom and $500 Amazon. The gift card total was $1000 and the entire amount including the two small additional items was $1001.15. After swiping my card charging the amount and getting the receipt I noted that it did not reflect the fuel points, in fact there was no reference whatsoever to Reward points. That is when the check out person said that the Rewards card had not been scanned. He did not ask for it nor did I voluntarily give it to him. I then gave him the card and he said he couldn’t do anything that I would have to go to customer service. I looked over at customer service and saw a very long line and groaned but, nonetheless got in the line.

The checkout time on the receipt shows 5:24pm on Friday, August 8. This is an incredibly busy time at this Kroger location and especially at customer service with people getting payroll checks cashed, buying money orders, etc. I got in the line and I was sixth in line. At the customer service desk there was one person. Yes, one person working the customer service area.

There was an elderly woman in front of me who showed some challenges in standing and who was getting increasingly upset that the line was not moving. She asked the lone man at customer service “can you please call someone to come help you.” The response from the lone man (whose name tag said Jonathon” was a loud, rather hateful “I am only one person. You’ll have to wait.” Where this did not answer the elderly woman’s question, it also showed a complete lack of respect for the elderly and a hateful, unnecessary attitude for someone in a customer service role. Though that exchange between them was none of my business, feeling compassion for the elderly lady, and, frankly, wondering why he hadn’t called for assistance, I countered back, “That is no way to talk to a customer.” There were some other people in line chiming in including the elderly lady. While this was going on, as another employee passed I asked him to get the manager on duty to come to the area. The employee, Everett, was very gracious and in a few minutes a man whose name I cannot remember (it could be Peter or Phillip or something like that) who is a man of shorter stature, came to the front. I then asked him if he were the manager in charge and he said yes. I asked him why there was only one person in customer service at this busy hour and could he get some help there. By this time, the elderly lady had also gone off on her own to seek additional assistance and there was a woman who joined Jonathan. I made some comment to her and the shorter store manager that something needs to be done about the attitude and demeanor of Jonathon. The woman, whose name was I believe “Anna,” in a harsh tone to me said, I will deal with that in private. I agree with that message but take issue with the manner of her delivery to me. At this point the short store manager slipped away to parts unknown. He left what was obviously a volatile situation that had not been resolved. Shame on him.

Anna and Jonathan continued to do the payroll checks, money orders, and whatever else they do up there and about 20 minutes later the elderly lady was summoned to be helped by Jonathan. As she got up there she was continuing to question him about why he didn’t get some help sooner. The elderly lady was interrupted by Anna who, in a very snarky tone, told her to not continue to talk with him about that and that if she were that upset, she (Anna) would help her. Again, the tone was patronizing and condescending and one of clear admonition. Again, I had to pipe in “Don’t chastise this lady; she is simply continuing to express her frustration.” At this point a third person arrives at customer service. Rather than to assist with the people in the line, which remained at a queue of 5-7 people, he began doing other things. Then my turn came and I was summoned by Jonathon. I stated that I would wait for Anna, so other people behind me went ahead. Again, the third person, a tall lean African American man, continued futzing around doing who knows what.

Then came time for me to be summoned by Anna. By this time I was completely fed up with the entire situation, the snarky, condescending, unprofessional and rude behavior of the “customer service” staff and the skulking off of the store manager in the presence of a volatile situation. When Anna asked how to help, I explained that the checkout clerk did not ask for nor did I volunteer my Kroger Rewards card and therefore my $1000 purchase of gift cards did not result in my getting ANY fuel points. I further stated, that due to all the negativity that had happened in the 20 minutes I’d been waiting I wanted a refund on everything—gift cards and all. She curtly said, we don’t give credit on gift cards. I asked for someone in higher authority to tell me that. She then turned to the third person who had arrived and who had “futzed” around telling him, “will you tell him we don’t refund credit cards” and that is exactly what the third person said. I asked him if he were the store manager and he stated he was X manager (I don’t recall what X was) but I knew it was not THE store manager. So I asked again, are you the store manager and he gave me the same answer. So a bit more animated, I asked, “how about answering the question asked, are you the store manager, the one who has ultimate authority of this entire store at this exact moment in time. With this, he got on the phone and summoned the person who arrived shortly who was the same shorter man I described earlier. The third man said, indicated to me, “he wants a refund on these gift cards and we told him we don’t give refunds on gift cards” but the third man did not give the store manager the context. So I had to. At that point the store manager said “we can’t give refunds on gift cards but we can call and get the points added. I said OK. Then the third person curtly stated, I need your Kroger Rewards card. At this point I opened my wallet, got out the card and because the man who asked for it was not close enough to hand it to, I dropped it on the counter as near to him as I could. At this point he said, “He threw that card at me and I’m not putting up with more of his ‘shit’” and walked away telling the store manager, I’m not dealing with that XXXXXX, I did not hear the name he called me. At this point, the short store manager told me, “we’re through with you, we’re not helping you anymore, and you need to leave.” This prompted, “You’ve not helped me at all” and “I know my way out.” I was still holding the gift cards and I left.

Upon getting in to my car I realized that I did not have the receipts or the other two items that I purchased and paid for. I called the Kroger Customer Connect number and told all the above to the young man I spoke with. He said he called the store and that the store said that I could get the receipts if I came back to the store and saw the security officer but that I was not to entered the store that I was banned from the store for “rude behavior and ‘throwing things.” With this, I asked a friend of mine to go get the receipts and when he tried, he was told that the receipts were with the “lead” security person and that she had gone home for the weekend and I would have to come back on Monday. With this, I called the Kroger Customer Connect again, spoke with a different person, told the same story with the addition of the security thing I just referenced and the second customer connect person said that the store has my receipts and items and that “if you behave” you can come in to the customer service area and get the items and receipt. I am 60 years old and it’s been many, many years since I have heard the phrase “if you behave.” That was unnecessary. I think that those in a service position (Kroger employees) need to recognize who the customer is and treat the customer accordingly. Likewise, the customer needs to act with respect. More on that later.

I went to the Kroger, reluctantly, as I had no idea what kind of ambush I would be encountering, went to the customer service area (this was at 7:45pm), Jonathon handed me the bag that had the items and the receipt, I thanked him and left.

The next morning I called Kroger Customer connect to try to get the fuel points and was told that since it was such a large amount they could not do it, that I would have to go to the store where I got them. I explained that I was “banned” from that store. They then said that perhaps another store could do it. I went to the store in Dallas on Cedar Springs (about 2 miles from the one on Maple), spoke with Tonya and she was exceedingly helpful, friendly, gracious and the epitome of customer service. The differences between customer service on Maple and that on Cedar Springs could not be more dramatic.

When I tried applying the $500 Amazon gift card to my Amazon account, I had nothing but trouble. I had to call Amazon and they had difficulty finding a record of validation of the card, but fortunately I have all the paperwork that I got at 7:45 on August 8. I suspect that in retaliation someone did something that put those gift cards in limbo. I haven’t tried the others yet as I wanted to write you first.

By the way, after providing Amazon with all the proof I had, they credited my account $500, but it wasn’t because of the card’s validation from the Kroger on Maple.

I do want to say that I regret my actions in the store. I got involved in the exchange between the elderly lady and the rude customer service person and that was none of my business. However, I saw my mother in the elderly lady and felt that the lady needed some support, and besides, Jonathon did need some help. All that being said, my actions were not appropriate. My raised voice only happened when the people I spoke with did not answer the question asked—the third person who would not answer the question of “are you the store manager.” It is maddening when a simple question is not answered. I would personally admit my regret at my actions to all those involved, but I have been banned. Please let this letter serve as that admission to those people. Lastly, I DID NOT throw anything nor did I use any profanity, unlike the third person who came to the customer service area. I tossed the Kroger Rewards card on the counter. When I did, it landed gently and did not hit anyone or anything. That third man simply did not like that I continued to challenge him and, yes, berate him for not answering the question I asked. That is why he stormed off using the profanity.

The following in no way is intended to justify anything I said or did, but where I own what I did, Kroger and its employees own their actions, too.

• Why didn’t the check out person ask for the Kroger Reward card? All the others do. Had this happened, none of this mess would have followed.
• Why, on a busy Friday afternoon at appx. 5:30 did they only have one person in the customer service area and especially with a consistent queue of about 5 people AND knowing that there are money orders, payroll checks, etc., as well as other things that are very time consuming. This is very poor planning.
• Why did Jonathon feel that it was appropriate to yell at the elderly lady “I am only one person” which did not answer the question of “can you get someone to help you?” Has he been brow-beaten by management to not ask for help? Also, he needs to be trained to answer the question asked.
• Why did the store manager upon my first summoning of him, retreat from the area know that the situation was still volatile?
• Why did the third person in the customer service area continue to “futz” around the area when there were customers in line who had been in line 10-20 minutes?
• Why did the third person not answer the very simple questions of “are you the store manager?”
• Why did the third person find it necessary to use profanity stating that he was not dealing with “his shit” and walk away?
• Why did the short store manager eject me from the store and keep my receipts?
• Why did I get multiple stories about how I could retrieve the receipts?
• What happened to the gift cards, at least the Amazon one?
• What is wrong with the leadership at this store?

Again, I am not trying to justify anything that I did or said. I got involved in something that was none of my business and it escalated from there. But Kroger is culpable in this scenario as well. You are in the service business and this was not good customer service for any of the people involved, including those who had to listen to all of it.

Lastly, I feel that a “ban” from that Kroger store is quite a harsh punishment when Kroger was just as liable for the unfortunate situation as I was and especially an egregious punishment to me when I was demeaned by the third person in the customer service area by his use of profanity describing the situation with me.

Where I may never visit that store again, I would like to ask that the “ban” be rescinded. I did nothing to warrant that. That is all that I am seeking here, unless I find that I have similar problems with the other cards that I purchased. There is something just not right about that store in and of itself but especially compared to the one a scant few miles away. Seems like it would be store management (or lack thereof).

Thank you for taking this letter seriously, because I do. In my 60 years of life I have never been banned from anything and I find it offensive. Again, I am not justifying my actions or my words as I was wrong and I believe I have learned from this. Next time, rather than to speak up while in line, I’ll simply call the store and ask to speak to the “person on site with the ultimate authority for the store at that time.”

Should anyone wish to talk with me about this, I can be reached at 469-441-xxxx.

Sincerely,

Jim B. Mallory

i was at the store 25780 middle belt rd in farmington hills mi. i used the coinstar machine. i when to cash my ticket and the cashier Duane tells me there is no money to give me, come back another day> i asked to talk to the manager and waited 45minutes for him to come. the manager Michael was so rude and told me that there was nothing he could do. Duane had just cashed a check in front of me after telling me that he had no money in the cash register. I’ve leaved in farmington hills all my life and never have been treated like that. i think the manager there is races, real races. finally i got my money after 1 hr and had to point out to the manager that duane just cashed a check. i think that kroger is a poor run kroger and ill never shop there again.plus someone should look at the cameras and see the way i was treated.

To whom it may concern,

I live in Princeton, WV, and regularly shop at the local Kroger on Stafford Drive in Princeton WV. I also am employed full time and often do my shopping rather late. Some nights I work until past 11pm and just need to swing by kroger for a couple items before I go home for the night. The local kroger used to stay open 24/7 but have somewhat recently began closing at midnight. While i understand slower business sometimes makes this necessary I do NOT understand why this gives the kroger employees the right to be rude to customers! My husband often is the one to stop by to pick up items we may need for dinner, or for breakfast the next morning or for his lunch for work the next day. The past several times he has ran a few minutes late so he grabs what he needs as quickly as possible and may sometimes be 3 to 4 minutes after 12 and has been treated terribly by the nighshift employees! He was ran out of the store twice and tonight was told (by the cashier with her cell phone glued to her ear!)when he got to the register that they could not ring up his purchase! When he ask to speak to a manager he was told managers no longer work night shifts. Im a manager myself for the business I work for and happen to know that if there is a paying customer in the store past closing, that customer is too be served! I’ll be taking my business to Wal Mart from now on, apparently the appreciate customers and don’t refuse their business!

We spent our vacation in Michigan (Davison) and I must say I was very impressed with the whole Kroger store. Normally we would shop at VG’S, which is more like where we shop at home. But the service at VG’s was less then inviting this time. The customer service at Krogers was excellent!~ from the way the meat counter person actually came around the counter and handed me the package , to the deli girl who let me try 2 different brands of turkey so I could see which one was more like Boar’s head (which I love) & even the bagger who let us know there was a car show uptown that weekend. Yes, I was impressed! Way to show up VG’s, Krogers. Keep up the great work!

Kroger in Waycross Ga has been horrible the last 2 weeks. Both times I went shopping the shelves were bare. The things I needed I couldn’t get because they were out of. No stockers during the day that I could find to see if maybe they had it in the back. I’ll have to find a different store if things don’t soon change. Must need to hire some stockers or some that can get the job done!! That’s a good way to lose customers!!!

URGENT MATTERS in which upper tiers management associated with Krogers’ Pharmacies should be made aware of. Matters concerning such a grave distrust to the company and public whom trust them in respect of their well being. Matters which I can only call SECRET CRIMINAL ACTS at work in which I have and am experiencing with the above mentioned Kroger Pharmacy. Such cunning acts I feel could only be spawned and executed by nothing less than a characterized psychopathic personality disorder marked by hostile, cruel, unaccepted behavioral standards in their thinking process, having lack of remorse or empathy for the people they cause so much suffering to.

And now having thought and thought I ask myself WHY such things are yet occurring? WHAT could motivate hearts and consciousness to relentlessly participate in the suffering of innocent people as they hide behind the Kroger’s name?. One prominent and lasting reasoning comes to mind is the under-the-table racketeering-exchange of MONEY.

Now having survived in the past, these undoubtedly SWITCH OF GOOD MEDS WITH apparently look-a-like meds in which altered compounds have proven to clearly be formulated different than good meds, even though meds are identified as being from the same manufacturers, these SWITCHED MEDS have dangerously elevated blood pressure, some causing unhealthy swelling, some even causing life-threatening rapid heart rate, even noticeable harmful changes in kidney function and or elevate sugar levels, none of which I would suffer having received previous good formulated meds from same manufacturers.

Having suffered through these apparently SWITCH OF GOOD MEDS WITH BAD MEDS, I began to watch closely as to see just how this CRIMINAL SWITCH OF such MEDS were taking place, and how these criminal-pharmacy-acts were being kept from innocent pharmacy employees.

Here at said Krogers Pharmacy, there were periods when EVERY TIME I came in with a regular prescription or refill request, I was told they had to order my meds which would be in the next day .. I began to recognize this delay time as SWITCH TIME., time to switch out the good meds for the bad meds initiating the under-the-table racketeering-exchange of MONEY. What else could it be when each time the meds I’d receive were doing me more harm than good?

Then in time at this said Krogers, I began to notice that instead of the one day delay, EACH TIME I’d come in, one particular pharmacy employee had began to speciously leave her station always for some type of a break, often times when she’d return, I could see the imprint of a medicine bottle in her pocket … the SWITCH WAS ON …

Over the years I’ve seen and heard many things sealing my concerns of CRIMINAL SWITCH OF MEDS. for this reason now being ever watchful, awake and aware … I was very attentive when bringing in my prescription on July 16, 2014 (ever hopeful that such a diabolical SWITCH OF MEDS scam had run it course).

It was around the one o’clock hour … there were no other customers seating or standing … and the whole time I was there it had been no more that two outside window walk-ups and no other pharmacy customers came to the inside while I was waiting …

Normally in such an apparent slow atmosphere it would only take 15 to 20 minutes to fill my prescription … nevertheless I was told it would take an hour .. so I took a seat and began to watch diligently and wait …

About 30 minutes into wondering why it was taking so long (about 1:40). I saw a very unusual young lady walk-in and go behind the counter wearing a loosely fitting smock top, not very neat in appearance. She had that familiar bottle-bulge in her pocket. I had never seen her here before, and I’m always in this Krogers, always watching to see if different pharmacists might be working.

NOW seconds after the strange lady came in, my prescription was ready, THE SWITCH HAD TAKEN PLACE …. Needless to say, I have only taken one of this supposingly Lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) pill, because the first one within the hour elevated my blood pressure to 220/125 , even though a first prescription of this same med worked very well ….

Now willing to pay cash for a 10.00 replacement with a different manufacturer .. on a following day a different pharmacy was at this Krogers … without mentioning to her that the meds I had were of a TEVA brand, I first asked her if Kroger carried the TEVA brand, and she immediately told me NO … I then asked what brand did they carry. She went to the back and returned holding a TEVA bottle and said this is all they had.

Also I was originally told on July 16th that the Norvasc was to early to be covered by the insurance, and asked how much would the generic cost and was told 45 dollars, then when coming back on the 31st the pharmacy assistant said it was still to early and that I could come in the NEXT DAY,. even though my insurance will pay 7 days a head of a previous covered prescription date…

I just want and deserve good medicines

To Kroger’s Pharmacy Upper Tier Management
In Reference to RX 6148384
Store 03400395
360 FM 1960
Houston Texas 77090

URGENT MATTERS in which upper tiers management associated with Krogers’ Pharmacies should be made aware of. Matters concerning such a grave distrust to the company and public whom trust them in respect of their well being. Matters which I can only call SECRET CRIMINAL ACTS at work in which I have and am experiencing with the above mentioned Kroger Pharmacy. Such cunning acts I feel could only be spawned and executed by nothing less than a characterized psychopathic personality disorder marked by hostile, cruel, unaccepted behavioral standards in their thinking process, having lack of remorse or empathy for the people they cause so much suffering to.

And now having thought and thought I ask myself WHY such things are yet occurring? WHAT could motivate hearts and consciousness to relentlessly participate in the suffering of innocent people as they hide behind the Kroger’s name?. One prominent and lasting reasoning comes to mind is the under-the-table racketeering-exchange of MONEY.

Now having survived in the past, these undoubtedly SWITCH OF GOOD MEDS WITH apparently look-a-like meds in which altered compounds have proven to clearly be formulated different than good meds, even though meds are identified as being from the same manufacturers, these SWITCHED MEDS have dangerously elevated blood pressure, some causing unhealthy swelling, some even causing life-threatening rapid heart rate, even noticeable harmful changes in kidney function and or elevate sugar levels, none of which I would suffer having received previous good formulated meds from same manufacturers.

Having suffered through these apparently SWITCH OF GOOD MEDS WITH BAD MEDS, I began to watch closely as to see just how this CRIMINAL SWITCH OF such MEDS were taking place, and how these criminal-pharmacy-acts were being kept from innocent pharmacy employees.

Here at said Krogers Pharmacy, there were periods when EVERY TIME I came in with a regular prescription or refill request, I was told they had to order my meds which would be in the next day .. I began to recognize this delay time as SWITCH TIME., time to switch out the good meds for the bad meds initiating the under-the-table racketeering-exchange of MONEY. What else could it be when each time the meds I’d receive were doing me more harm than good?

Then in time at this said Krogers, I began to notice that instead of the one day delay, EACH TIME I’d come in, one particular pharmacy employee had began to speciously leave her station always for some type of a break, often times when she’d return, I could see the imprint of a medicine bottle in her pocket … the SWITCH WAS ON …

Customer service is awful at Kroger HW 278 Covington GA. The manager also seem to support his employee incompetence instead of bringing justice to customers. I gave Kroger another try and it failed me again. It is about time to bring a young blood to the Covington GA store before it is too late.

Unfortunately, I live in Georgia where the jerk of a governor has declared that firearms are legal everywhere (except in the State Capitol.) However, individual businesses can forbid guns in their establishments, like Target has. Therefore, I would like to strongly suggest that you encourage your managers to place a “NO FIREARMS ALLOWED” sign at the entrance of your stores.

Another suggestion would be to also place a sign saying “NO SMOKING ALLOWED” at the entrance. When I enter my Kroger in Rincon, I want to smell the bakery and the cleanliness of the store, not smoke from e-cigarettes or original cigarettes and cigars.

Thank you.

There is a Kroger Signature Store on MacArthur Dr. in Alexandria, LA that made a decent shopping store worse by changing things negatively. This store had a decent little deli café eating area of 3 tables and chairs; there were regular customers that used this area and really enjoyed it. This area also had free standard coffee and a ice machine:They took all of this away when they had been promising to put in a new ice machine. Some of us enjoyed eating there semi regularly.They also took reasonably decent tables that were in front of their Starbucks Coffee area, which I never use and neither to the people that I used to see at the Deli area, and replaced them with “Chency, dark brown small plastic tables” – ugly. None of the people that uswed the Deli table area have I ever seen sitting down in front of the Starbucks area. And, I would suppose the whole point of getting away with the Deli table area was to force people to use the Starbuck Coffeee area in hopes of selling the more expensive coffee. I cannot see that has caused any increase and I am reasonably certain the people that enjoyed the Deli table area and the standard coffee there are not falling for the snooker game at shifting people to buying more Starbucks Coffee. No Sale here for sure. The store had been supposedly getting upgrades but none to the talked about upgrades ever came but the prices did increase. Dissatisfied with Kroger’s failure at this store.

I have read a lot of comments on here of people complaining about Kroger stores, and I only want to say that I have experienced nothing but greatness from our local 6th Street Kroger Store in Findlay, OH. The workers are extremely nice, and helpful, and if I have had to return something or had an issue, I have never had a problem. As well, they got out of their way for you “the customer”! We being mostly my 3yr old (Aryiah-aka Bitty) absolutely love the store, they actually make Bitty feel like shes an employee (little helper) her favorite employee is Toby Weeks!! Thanks to the Kroger team in Findlay, OH (@ the 6th Street Store!)

This one tops them all. Try returning a $2.15 box of dishwasher soap without a receipt. The Antioch TN store on Nashboro Blvd treats you like a thief; because who actually saves their receipt? Then the manager told me they discriminate against people this way because their store has more theft than others. Not to mention the box said satisfaction guaranteed and I wasn’t satisfied because it left a film all over my nice dishes. I also returned the box full which would indicate to a rational person that I legitimately didn’t like the quality. Hope the right people sees this at the kroger office and correct the management issues at this store before other customers are discriminated against because of the theft of others.

I am a long time Kroger shopper but this weekend I went into Kroger store#962 in Indianapolis and never felt so unappreciated and disrespected by a customer service store employee. I went in to use the money in minutes service. There was a sign saying the line starts here. I waited for about 15mins and all of a sudden when the Kroger customer service rep. Finished waiting on the customer in front of me, all of a sudden a lady came from the opposite entry side and the Kroger employee began servicing her. I politely told the Kroger worker that I had been standing in the correct entry line and was next. She still began waiting on the customer and told me that a sign was blocking her view and that she didn’t see me. At this point the customer and myself started arguing. This went on for a while and the customer started using profanity and was extremely rude to me. As she left the young lady began waiting on me and I politely told her that the situation was partly her fault but she refused to acknowledge this fact. She and I stood their arguing for 15mins. She was furious with me and started speaking in her native language to me. The whole ordeal was very overwhelming for me and to top it off the co-manager Latonya did not make matters any better. She asked the Kroger worker to step aside and someone else helped me. The Kroger worker started calling someone on her cell phone and the co-manager told her that she wasn’t allowed to use her phone while working. The bottom line is that although the store is 10 miles from my house I will never go back in the store.

Kroger Corporate Offices
Vine Street, OTR

To Whom It May Concern.
Let me start with saying I love Krogers, at the Hyde Park store the employees are friendly, helpful and I am ALWAYS able to find what I need or want. If not, a special order is accepted and appreciated and always delivered.

I moved to Over The Rhine in September 2013. I have no choice but to Shop at the Krogers on Vine St. in OTR. With Corporate located on the same street just a few blocks away I WAS AMAZED!!!!!
When I was notified that I would be here for more that several months – possible 1-2 years in January of 2014 I have requested that a private selection (Kroger brand???????) and other kroger brand items be ordered.
TOM
I spoke with Tom about my request and was asked “How many will you buy?” (was he serious?)
Over the next several months I continued to request the Private Selection Decaffeinated Hazelnut medium blend, among several other items.
I have written it down several tines, asked more time that I can count and was told by Rhonda “We’re not going to order it just for you.” ” No one else is going to buy it.” “We don’t special order.”
Even speaking with the store manager (as he CRINGED!) I was told “were not going to order it unless you purchase the entire order even the it is unlikely the order will be placed.’

i HAVE BEEN INSULTED DISRESPECTED AND DOWNRIGHT IGNORED.

With the ever increasing construction and improvements being made in the area of OTR, it is shocking to see such a DISGRACEFUL DIRTY and RACISTS facility. The quality and quantity of products are shameful and very often EXPIRED!

So to sum it up, I have been trying to order specific items with out results for over 10 months. Its not a wonder why locals call it “The Ghetto Kroger’s”.

Sadly and Sincerely,
Susan Stricker

I have tried endlessly to get in touch with the “workman’s comp.” dept, without any luck. After receiving legal documentation that I am due $/week, they don’t abide by the Court’s order on any kind of timely basis. All I ask is to get what “little” was allowed by law, on a consistent basis, not when a minimum wage person decides to pay what is owed. Their negligence screwed me and my husband for the rest of our lives!!
Would love to hear back from MR. DILLION! Having come from Hutchinson, KS. where I live.

I know that customers complain and that we really don’t know them just like I don’t know them I was just wondering how Kroger really just let someone go that hasdone nothing but come in do their job stay late when they need them to or come on on their off days to help them out,but another employee can have her phone or get into a altercation with a store full of customers and with a customer and still managed to keep her job this other employee went to the breakroom instead of going home like she was told to but she didn’t calm down and come back and finishes her shift but yet I get fired because of my so call body language and was accused of having a attitude while this other employee gets to keep her job fir her behaviors not to mention its ok for your front ends not to smile and have attitudes torwards people I know at least two that need their attitudes checked and when the front end is called to a check stand to handle something that requires their key it shouldn’t take 5 minutes to come handle it especially if they aren’t dealing with a customer,but just to let you know I he e spoken to a lawyer about this and they feel that this Is discrimination and unfair

I’m on dial-up and have not had this problem until now. I’ve been trying all week to access this site to no avail. My provider accesses it easily at their facility.

Salem,Va store. What a shit hole this place is. My son was hired to work in the deli. He was going thru his training when somehow the person at the training center told him not to report for training on that saturday,well he received a phone call from the HR some girl named Karen told him not to bother coming back to work at the store and he asked why and she told him that he didn’t report for training. There is a line of communication here and she didn’t even bother to call and verify this. She,Karen,also loves to talk bad about employees and other companies. She needs a attitude adjustment as far as I am concerned. Also my son is better off working somewhere else and not in a shit hole like the store in Salem,va on main st.

Overall pleased with Kroger – Houston. But, things are changing. I purchased some beef shank this week. It was sold in a vacuum package. This is extremely nasty looking and probably had been frozen and then thawed. The package was filled with blood. You couldn’t even see the meat for the blood that the paper had absorbed. I refuse to buy meat that has been vacuum packed like this. I will find a market that does not do this.

Also, I wish super markets would quick trying to trick people with their advertising. Just make it simple!!! Don’t advertise that a product is 10 for $10. Just say it is $1.00. Also quick trying to lure people to buy items that they don’t need. “Buy a product and you will get two other items free.” “Buy 5 of these products and save $1.” It’s usually a group of items that you wouldn’t buy. Keep it simple and stop trying to fool us!

Also, the quantities in packaging should be addressed. This was on TV last week. Industry should get together and package items in weights where a consumer can compare price and ounces with another product. I am also tired of the weights of products being reduced and the price staying the same. How stupid to you think we are?

Also I was not aware that Kroger was contemplating reducing the senior discount. This is the only reason that I don’t do all my shopping at HEB!!!

the krogers in springfield ohio on bectle ave are not doubling any coupons ever, i have shopped there for years and have started couponning to find this kroger has chose to do this when the meijer store next door dose double, this has forced me to start looking for a new place to shop, like meijer, one more thing this store dose is give reward points for shopping but you are forced to by only gas with it. every time i have tryed to use those poits for gas there has been some isue on how to use the pump and use the points, i think they are constantly changing the prosses so the poits will not be used, and when i have gotten to use them i could not see any savings from the price to fill my tank, i think krogers should have one day a week to double coupons and that the reward points should be used for more in store savings if i chose to do so,

I truly wish Kroger’s would set up a space in the vegetable dept . and place locally grown , or U S A grown tomatoes and such . I hate to have to buy vegetables from other countries . I not only don’t trust the fruit and veggies they also don’t taste as good and they don’t last ,I prefer to go to a fruit stand for those purchases .Your tomatoes either grow mold or blow up with in a few days .

I’ve recently tried to locate a contact e-mail to your financial or new product division.
I’m a small business owner from Lexington Ky. My reason for wanting this contact info is to learn more about krogers and it’s relation or possible relationship with the small businesses around them. I understand that typically krogers receives there proposals via brochure yet that would not be adequate for I’m not selling a product, I’m in the service and courier industry and my proposal would only extend to my local area..

This is my new Facebook post: Cold Spring KY
Count your pills, read the print, and don’t sign or pay until you have at the Kroger Pharmacy.
ON 4/27 I called in 4 refills. One refill was for Matt and three were for me. One of the scripts monthly has 60 pills. I had two refills remaining. When I picked the meds up I signed the screen while the tech got the bags, she scan them and took my credit card, and she stapled the receipt to the bags and handed them to me. I trusted that it was correct. NOPE!
My refill of 60 was only 6. It said on the bottle that I got 6 pills and had a 1.80 refill remaining. 6/60=.10, not .20 which =48pills
First, someone should have alerted me to the fact that my prescription for 60 was only a partial refill of 6. There is no option when you call in to partially fill. Next I paid full co-pay!
I called in another refill just as before, went to pick it up and ask for the head pharmacist. I explained the situation and she stated that she was sorry and she would give me this refill for free. I explained that this was a bigger problem than just paying my co-pay. 6/60=.10 not .20. I cannot believe that the pharmacist told me that it was not a big deal that I would get a whole script next month because my doctor already had another new script waiting and they would just fill that instead of the remaining refill of .8 =48 pills. I ask where are the missing 6 pills that your records and mine state I never got. Furthermore, you are acting like you could care less and it is no big deal. I have totally lost trust. I will have to read the print and count every pill.
Unbelievable that she said it wasn’t a controlled substance, my insurance was only billed for the 6 pills last time . . . she did not understand why I wouldn’t take my free 60 pills and leave.
I ask for the pharmacist name that filled the script and the tech that cash me out; she stated that she could not give me that information because the script was prepared off site.
HOW CAN I TRUST YOUR PHARMACY THEN….. I will have to count every pill before you check me out… BITCH stated that is my prerogative and right. I smiled and stated it is, just like it is my right to have your manager’s name and number. She stated he was on vacation until Monday. I ask for his manager’s name and she refused, told me corp office 800kroger would give him the message. I turned and told everyone in line what happen, then told her to transfer all scripts to Walgreens. I stated very clearly to her that she was not to touch the script that was messed up, and that I wanted the new script from my doctor filled instead. I wanted to seek advise from others before touching that script. They called in all the new scripts except the one that is messed up. They told walgreens that the script had 108 pill refill. Walgreens would not fill it because it is a 60 refill. I had to jump through hoops to get walgreens to get me my much needed meds. And from this day forth, I will take the bottle out of the bag, make sure the bottle and script doc’s match THEN sign and pay.
DO NO TRUST KROGER PHARMACY!
We were loyal Kroger customers. I am going to seek advise. I have kept every bottle, bag and paper for insurance purposes.

My wife and I had a VERY unpleasant experience this evening at what was our favorite Kroger store, located at 2525 Hilliard Rome Rd. We go to this location most every time we need groceries, gas, etc. We use 1 Kroger card for both of our purchases, as we are a family. We spend our fuel points after we get enough to help save a buck or two, in these times of very high prices for gasoline. We have visited the gas station at this Kroger and have filled our tanks together upon many occasion, have seen other customers doing the same. This evening however an associate of your company (I believe he said his name was James Williams) was sitting outside of the cashier box, smoking a cigarette, looked over and saw us parked at the pump, said we were not allowed to put our purchase together. Then walked over towards the pump, to harass us again, and as I had filled my tank, had the attendant inside the box, shut down the pump. This however became instantly a secondary issue. In an apparent racially charged attack, Mr Williams, began to talk to us as if we were criminals and breaking the law, even saying that “you should go to jail, when my manager comes to tell you the same thing”, His exact words were “Just because I have this shirt on, don’t mean I ain’t a man, I don’t give a damn who is out here” speaking to my wife as if he wanted to threaten her whether I was there or not. He then stated he did not care about this job, it was just a second job. This was very evident, by his tone and the unacceptable choice of words, and manner in which he talked to us. At this point, I was furious, and went inside to find the store manager. Inside this location, I spoke with a new manager to this store (Bob Markwood). He was very arrogant, and acted as if he didn’t really care, that I was upset. He said he was going to talk to the associate, and I invited him to accompany me outside to the gas area. He declined, and said he would talk to him without me. I went back out to the pump area, where my wife was extremely upset and in tears, she wanted to talk to Bob also. We then went back into the store, and she asked to speak to Bob Markwood, he came to the customer service area, and acted the same way towards my wife. Said he would speak to the associate. Both my wife and I have worked, and managed in the customer service profession, and if ANY associate talked to ANY customer in the manner we were spoken to. They would be terminated immediately! Everyone we encounter at this location have been so nice to us, we visit your store twice a week ONLY to see cashier associate “Linda”. She is the sweetest lady. We realize we are only 2 people of many who shop your brands, and we really don’t matter, (Mr. Markwood made that very apparent) But, feeling threatened to shop in your store is truly not what we are accustomed to. I am hoping something will be done.

Went to Kroger today to exchange a Kroger brand baby formula for my son. I tried it a few months ago and my son handled it badly. He turned 6 months and eats baby food now so I decided to give it another chance. The first time I returned it I was a little nervous returning it because I had no receipt and figured worst case scenario it was their brand so maybe giftcard to get my baby’s regular formula. I was suprised because I got cash back with no receipt!! I was very confident about trying it again. Unfortunately he had the same reaction and I had to go back again to exchange the formula. Sad because the price is so good and even after contacting the competition and using coupons they sent Kroger still has a better price for the ‘same’ thing. The customer service lady told me at the desk she wouldn’t take it back without a receipt. I told her what happened the time before and she said sorry…she wouldn’t do it. I was livid. I didn’t make a scene but inside I hit the roof. I spent 18$ on Kroger brand formula because I was looking to save money. Now im deeper in the hole. I asked to speak to a manager and the management said they were sorry. They don’t know who allowed it but its not allowed and they couldn’t help me. Thats crap. So…lets get this straight. You bend the rules depending on your mood? Then you forgot to twll the customer your bending the rules for them so when they take a leap in your brand name direction and it goes south you put it on them to have compassion on you for not making sure that your rules are held to by you employees. I have now spent almost $40 in formula in less than a week because your company failed to let me know they shift on rules. I spend $300 a month at Kroger. That is a budgeted amount. If Kroger does not fix this…you are less than a block away from Wal-Mart. I do not mind paying better prices in a packed store if it means I can take 300$ from you for you taking my $18.

Every time I go to Kroger’s On Memorial Blvd. Murfreesboro,Tn. I end up getting the same cashier! I try to avoid her like the plague!! I use the reusable bags and every time, she sets them to the side and lays my stuff all over the place, then she takes her time cause she doesn’t want to “bag” my items. So usually, I end up bagging it myself. Today on the other hand, I chose a register w/a light on and no cashier was around. A girl tells me that a cashier was going to be there in a minute and I din’t hear what she said, so I said “excuse me?” And in a discerning tone of voice she repeated herself! WOW!!! Then who finally comes to the register? You guessed it, Carmella!!! OMG! I just wanted to run out the front door! And sure enough, she started started talking to a previous customer that she forgot to charge for a newspaper because the older lady didn’t have one. Anyway, Carmella takes my money gives me a receipt and instead of bagging my stuff, she takes off to get the ladies newspaper!! I had to bag my own stuff AGAIN!!! When I get to my car w/groceries, I call for manager in the building. I get put on hold 3 times then when it starts ringing again for 4th time, customer service didn’t even answer, but put me on hold again! This took 9 min. and 54 secs. During this 10 min. ordeal, being put on hold, I arrive home! Never spoke to anyone except the girl @ customer service!! I hang up finally and try to call back and a recording came on saying they temporarily couldn’t take calls!!! Where was this manager? Why does this woman still work there? She infuriates me! And I’m a preferred customer? Wonder how non-preferred are treated? Thankfully, we have a new Wal-Mart opening up! I’ll do my one stop shopping there! Good-bye Kroger’s!!!

What system/software do you use to implement a UPC scan is associated with the store in which it was purchased? For instance, if I were to scan a cereal/product with a box tops for education coupon, would that be loaded into the store location? I would like this information to be in tandem with a school for which the box top would be digitally uploaded rather than physically cut out and mailed. I would like to expedite the process.

Greetings,
I have a question regarding a new strategy at the Food 4 Less stores. I heard there was an order to stop pushing the Kroger products in favor of name brand products. While that strategy may increase sales in some regions, that is not the case in others. The Los Angeles area sells more Kroger merchandise and removing them from the “Dump bins” will only end up hurting sales and thus profits…

Dear Kroger,

I was in Ohio a few days ago and had the opportunity to visit your super store in the Dayton area. I am really, really impressed. I love the aisle with specialty foods, olives, breads, your fish carousal was Awesome. Their was an aisle of foods for take out, like lunches etc. A wonderful coffee bar. And the remaining portion of store was very neat, organized and had anything you might wish. We shop regularly at the Kroger on North St here in Nacogdoches. Mr. Strickland has done a wonderful job with that store. He’s always seems to be there and a terrific manager. I was writing to see if possible can Nacogdoches have one of these super stores??? It would a very positive thing for the area and many many folks don’t like shopping a Walmart. Walmart just plan sucks rotten eggs, no personal feel when you go there. They ( Walmart ) just want you $$$ and run. Kroger is very friendly and always seems to be aware of their customers. Hats off and a huge salute to Mr. Strickalnd at our friendly Kroger store. And maybe please a Supper Kroger for Nac.
Thanks so much. Antikee Bush

This email is directed to the Head of Security or Loss Prevention Group.
My wife was involved in a verbal abuse confrontation at the Kroger Store at Eldridge & Briarforest 04/28/2014 by one of two men. This was concerning a dog locked in a vehicle in the parking lot with the windows up. This had been reported by another woman shopper to the manager. One of the men who owned the dog confronted my wife using verbal abuse . Immediately several Kroger employees surrounded her while the store manager’s was summoned. In the mean time the two men involved stood one at each exit in such a way that my wife was terrified to go to her vehicle.
Since the manager couldn’t be found she called 911. to be escorted to her vehicle. It took some 15+ minutes for the police to arrive, still no manager showed up. The police escorted my wife to her car. I called the manager later, he had no idea this had happened
These men may have been armed. If it wasn’t for Parvez (Kroger employee) it could have esculated. I have requested an email apology from the manager John Oettle. I have also spoken with a John Garcia – Loss Prevention District Mgr. regarding this matter. What is troubling is that none of these people seemed really concerned about what took place. Please call 832+814-XXXX to discuss further.

I shop at the kroger in Troy MI not sure what the store # is…. I stopped there on april 30th to purchase some groceries and including that was a Chobani Yougurt… when I went to eat one of them yesterday as soon I opened the top I noticed that there was a weird smell from the container… When I looked at the expiration date on the top of it, it said that it had expired on 03/16/2014!!!! How can you allow that on your shelves for 14 Days, not a couple of days but 14 days… I had purchased 10 of them and 8 of them were expired. I can not beleive this. I will not trust this place again. I wanted to take a survey but I had thrown my receipt away. Shame on Kroger!

Also… what most news outlets reporting this story MISSED was that Kroger is CUTTING the Senior Discount from 10% (where it was before) to a mere 5% (the new rate)!

ALSO… Kroger is RAISING THE AGE from 58 (where it had been before) to 60 (the new age requirement)!

Moving the discount day was just a blind, so we wouldn’t see the discount had dropped and the age had been raised!

Which is what has triggered a nation-wide SENIOR BOYCOTT of all Kroger stores.

Because we seniers ARE NOT THAT STUPID, Kroger!!!

How on earth can you justify firing an employee who was protecting your rights and interests and who was doing the right thing, the proper thing? He was defending the rights of all of us by standing up against thievery, wanton disrespect of property rights, etc.
You ought to be rewarding him for bravery, for protecting and defending property rights in a time when our Constitution is blatantly ignored, misunderstood, violated. He ought to be honored, not fired.
Better watch out. Look what happened to Cracker Barrel when they removed all Duck Dynasty goods from their shelves.
We will be voting with our feet and not shopping in Krogers until this “incident” is properly handeled.

Integrity Kroger has, its leadership is spineless, gutless, greedy pigs.

Kroger is just another bad example of what is currently

Re. the story titled: “Kroger manager fired after he slams a knife-wielding shoplifter to the ground.” I’ve been a Kroger customer since moving to West Chester, OH in 1978. I’ve also been a supporter of your efforts to place a Super Store at the corner of Rt 747 and Tylersville Rd. And, my interview by Channel 5 where I verbally supported your efforts on the day of the latest defeat in your efforts to get the WC Township Trustees to approve the site, was broadcast that very day. But now I question your judgment in firing the subject of the referenced article. Your “Kroger Values” as shown on your web site are what this brave employee displayed and for that he is fired. This is as dumb as the PC police suspending kids from school because he/she chewed a cookie to look like a gun. Come on folks give the guy a break and then make sure all of your associates are aware of this dumb policy. Have them sign acknowledgement of the policy and then you can, if you still think it is the correct policy, re-implement it. But give this guy a second chance.

Values

In fulfilling our commitment, we always live by our core values:
Honesty: We insist on truthfulness with each other, with our customers, with our vendors and in our business records. We expect and value openness.
Integrity: We act in accordance with our values, even when it’s difficult.
Respect: We treat all with dignity and value the opinions and perspectives of others.
Diversity: We seek and embrace differences in the backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities of all associates, customers and vendors.
Safety: We protect our customers and each other from injury with a safe and secure workplace and shopping environment.
Inclusion: We encourage and expect collaboration, teamwork and the active involvement of all associates.

In reference to the article of the Arlington TX Kroger manager who chased the shoplifter out of the store, took the man down then took a knife away from him: This is the type of manager(s) I would want at the store(s) I shop. He is looking out for the safety of his employees and his customers. As a Civilian Police Officer and a Veteran Military Intelligence Analyst, I can confidently say that firing him sends a message to criminals that armed criminals have free reign at your stores. Why? Because any manager or employee that acts to protect his employees and customers will be removed.

This man should never have been fired for doing this. I do hope you hire him back and say you are very sorry for firing him. You made a huge mistake.

OUTRAGEOUSE! The EX-manager is HERO! He unselfishly put himself in a very dangerous situation TO SAVE THE LIFE of 51-year-old Claude Medlock, a man with a questionable background and a history of poor decision making, who was knocked to the ground while holding a knife in his hand outside a crowded KROGERS GROCERY STORE. This courageous quick thinking act undoubtedly got Mr. Medlock out of a situation that could have turned deadly in an instant for “allegedly” bringing a knife to a gun fight in the State of Texas. It is also fortunate for KROGER’S that Claude was not killed in this incident and will be able to continue to roam the isles of the most dangerous grocery store in town without interference, along with all the other unprotected KROGER shoppers, because policy demands that the managers to wait for the massive cleanup in isle’s five, six and seven

It seems it’s a “damned if you do and damned if you don’t” situation. A Kroger store manager can apparently be fired for too much ‘shrinkage’ in the store, but also fired for dealing with a shoplifter. I am very disappointed in your company for firing a manager for subduing a shoplifter. Shame on you, Kroger! I’ll think twice before going to my local City Market store in Denver. Luckily, there’s a competitor’s store equidistant from City Market…

Let me get this straight you fired a manager for stopping a shop lifter. To begin with this seems like a dedicated employee. Secondly I really believe that shop lifting causes the prices of items in your store to go up there for running up my grocery bill. You make check out my purchases on my card and find that I am a loyal Kroger shopper and have been for years. But I will also tell you that there is a Walmart and a Publix within easy driving distance of my house. I strongly disagree with your action and policy in this matter.

Just seen on the news where a kroger manager caught a shoplifter in the parking lot. The shoplifter pulled a knife on the manager. The manager wrestled the knife away and threw the shoplifter on the ground. Held him there and waited for police. The manager was fired for his actions… Kroger, you are wrong for firing that hero! He was saving your stores money, and protecting your customers by making sure tthat man was arrested. I WILL NOT STEP A FOOT IN YOUR STORES AGAIN, UNTIL that manager gets his job back. You should also buy that manager a steak dinner and give him a promotion. In my eyes he did your store , your customers and community a great job.

I live in a senior citizen complex. My neighbor and I went to Kroger this evening to shop. I finished before she did and wanted to check out before she was done. Their are no benches or places to sit while waiting for a friend to check out. While this complaint may seem trivial to you because your in good health,it is not at all trivial to me. Every where to shop these days is a (super store) large stores and no convenient places for older people to rest or wait on a companion. With a growing population of baby boomers it is beyond me why Kroger,Walmart and other super stores are doing very very little to accommodate senior citizens. We park along ways away in the parking lot, we go from produce, to frozen foods and are almost worn out before we get to the check out . While living in a over 55 senior building we try to look after our neighbors so we rarely make lone trips to the grocery. One or the other of us waits…so today I stood in pain leaning over a grocery cart with no place to rest near the check outs or through out the store! Let’s do something for this agreeing population,the few dollars it would cost you in floor space would soon be made up by happy shoppers! I would very much like a reply to this complaint and I’d like to see you specifically reply to my list of complaints! Thank you very much for your time and consideration! Larry Jackson

This is about the thievery I have witnessed twice and stopped by my mere presence 3 times at the Dillon’s store at Central Ave. and Rock Rd. in Wichita, Ks.
This has been a trend over the last 4 or so months of women with LARGE purses cruising about the store and stealing. I saw a small ham go out the door in a woman’s purse today. Yeah, I peeked when I passed her and her giant purse. It was gaped open.
Sure, she may have brought it from home for a luncheon, but I doubt it.
If you have security there, in my opinion, it is not working.
The word is out that your an easy mark obviously..
I bring this to your attention, if it is not already by looking at the store numbers, because it disappoints me that the store is so lax there on this security issue and the fact that I will most likely get fewer discounts and eventually have to pay even higher grocery prices, and /or watch the location fail.
I would rather not see any of this happen as this particular store has been the best grocery I personally have ever shopped in overall and we have been shopping at this location 5 years and would rather go nowhere else.
Thank you for your attention,
Vince Nix

I’m making far more effort to reach you than I would anybody else because I’m very loyal to Kroger. Somebody has wrecked your internet server. For 4 days now, I can’t access anything, download coupons and reach you.
I am Kroger plus card # 42485429785 8/John Young/1104 Sleeping Valley Ct/Brentwood TN 37027
Since Thursday you’re website has become insulting saying you’re working on the problem and “please check back in a few minutes.” I’ll do some shopping with you this weekend but this is irritating for 3 reasons
(1 nobody at your call in number could explain, help, or tell me what is going on.
(2 on my profile page you’ve now erased all my info. The store at which I shop at now shows blank with “no store chosen”
(3 I didn’t get my weekly email from you but DID get something to jmyXXXX@bellsouth.net showing a registration at a store in Marietta GA. So instead of getting content from Kroger/Louisville or whatever division i’m a customer in now, youre sending me mail from Kroger/Atlanta?

I’m now afraid to even try your website because after the Target Dept store scandal, I think you guys have been shut down and it seems even trying to go there might be risky. Thank goodness Publix is up and running, and I’m sure Harris – Teeter hasn’t been put on your server yet, but what a way to start Easter week. I have a lot of shopping to do. But at least please change the graphic and quit saying “check back in a few minutes.” That’s not funny anymore.

For the last 2 Fridays I have tried to go to the website for digital coupons and the message is that they are down and to come back later due to technical issues. I basically can’t sign on to track and download coupons. The free Friday items can never be accessed. The new digital coupons can never be uploaded to my card. Every time I go back to the site to see if the matter is resolved I get the same message…That we are down due to technical difficulties tray again later. Something is really messed up with your website or something and I wanted to make you aware of it.

Last night I stopped by the Super Kroger i Centerville Ohio to pick up a few things. When I arrived at the 15 Items or less check out isle, I discovered a man which either could do simple math, or had no respect for his fellow shoppers. His shopping cart was 1/2 empty and he had already place the other 1/2 on the belt. I looked at the the cart, the 15 items of less sign and the guy’s face and wondered if I was seeing correctly.
It gets worse.
I went to the next isle over, purchased my items, and then headed out to my car. Knowing the guy would be a while checking out his items, I placed a call to the store manager to get his opinion. Any guesses what happened next? The store manager was quick to state Kroger’s policy was not to offend anyone and he was not going to say anything to the customer. Yet myself and everyone else wanting to use the 15 items or less would be left to locate another quicker way to pay, or wait in line for guys like this, which is acceptable to Kroger?
Today I surveyed other locations and found managers which stated they would have assisted the customer with making better choices, or opened another isle if possible. The cashier should have been trained to contact mangement when the issue arrises.

When I contacted Kroger corp today, I was told Kroger does not want to make customers abusing the 14 items “suggestion”, unhappy,uncomfortble, or mad. The others? We don’t count I guess.

Feel free to post on social media, as I will. I plan on spending more of my hard earned dollars at a competitor, even if it does mean I pay a little more.

Kroger,
I am a diabetic living in Louisville, KY 40291. My Doctor instructed me to eat Kellogg’s Special K Blueberry Cereal for my breakfast meal every morning. He said that the anti-oxidants cereal would help with my diabetes. I eat this cereal for a couple year. Then all of a sudden Kellogg’s stopped making the cereal. Below is Kellogg’s statement why they stopped making the Blueberry Cereal.

(We understand you enjoyed it and wish we could continue making it for you. Unfortunately stores only want to stock the fastest moving items and once the stores start to discontinue them, we find it challenging to produce and manage small orders. It is always difficult for us to make the decision to discontinue an item, as we know it is often someone’s favorite. At this time, there are no plans to reintroduce it.)

Is there a way as they state you all help make the decision to stop making the Kellogg’s Special K Blueberry Cereal. Please help bring back Kellogg’s Special K Blueberry Cereal to the market place.

Thanks Larry

Complete joke, as usual.

I am sure Kroger sees 100’s of emails like this but as is pretty much common knowledge, the shopping experience at Kroger’s is a complete joke compared to Publix. Granted their prices are a bit higher, but for the customer experience, what’s a buck or two. I just went to the Kroger on Holcomb Bridge near Rte 9 in Roswell to get dark corn syrup. I wandered around for 1/2 hr and came to find out you had none. Guess I have to go to Whole Foods to get something so unique. Heck, at one point I went to Customer Service and some Iranian guy that spoke no English handed me a bloody list when I asked him for help. NEVER AGAIN!!! Then, you have to be a rocket scientist to know that there is no way to email customer service about those jokers…

Hello, I visited my local Kroger as I do on a regular basis. Today my daughter and I were shocked to see a lot of food being tossed in the trash. The employees were cleaning out the hot foods and were throwing tons of cooked chicken and other foods in the trash. We were very shocked at this since there are so many hungry and homeless people that would love to have that. We have a soup kitchen here that feeds people meals on certain days that could probably use the leftover food. Animals are being killed all the time for food and then it just goes in the trash like that. You are a large corporation and have locations all around, and Im guessing they are doing the same with the food nor being used. Why isn’t this food being donated. You have many employees who work for you to make you profit, why not hire some for working to give back and find these people in need who could use all this food being trashed everyday??

After 50 years going to Kroger I’ve got to say I will be taking my business elsewhere. I have never BEEN SO DISGUSTED with a store in my entire life. I can’t even buy a turkey breast anymore because it is a seasonal item. Since when? I have been buying turkey breast for a long time other than at Thanksgiving. We eat turkey breast quite a lot not just at Thanksgiving. I can’t buy Kroger vanilla yogurt anymore like I used to Can’t buy Kroger Tang. What happened you go from one of the best stores to one of the worst. I’ve never heard of a store not selling turkeys or vanilla yogurt.

I was born and raised in New York and was taught to enjoy Raw Clams. For years Kroger has sold them by the dozen. Yes some clams such as Ipswich Clams are sold by the pound but not the Top Necks, Cherry Stones, Chowder Clams etc.

Several years ago some employee accidently put per pound on the label. Management recognized the error and corrected it. The label issue was never straightened out.
Recently some Genius in their organization decided they should be sold by the pound. Have they bumped there head? The last time I tried to purchase clams at Kroger they tried to charge me $7.99 per pound. I returned trying to find the Seafood Department Manager and noticed the clams were selling for $3.50 a pound. I visited Kroger for the last time and was able to speak with the department manager who informed me that a call was made and she was told that they clams were being sold at the wrong price for years.

This last week I was visiting Philadelphia where clams were selling for $6.00 a dozen. Perhaps Mr. Michael J. Donnelly is trying to fund his retirement early.

It is bad enough they try to sell us the lowest quality of crab legs you can find. If they are so proud about the number of seafood items you put in their display case then why don’t they at least learn their product and provide quality items. Mr. Donnelly, I don’t care if you retire early but it won’t be from my wallet.

Yours truly

Kroger no longer cares about their employees, its all about making money for them! They are trying to get full-time employees so stressed out so they quit, and they can hire part-time help at minimum wage

As a former employee of kroger, I must say that it was the wort experience of my short working life. I started out as a deli clerk, and within 3 monts I was Asst., things were going good. Then after some time i noticed my hands were getting dry to the point of cracking and bleeding. I talked to my pharmacy and store director and was told to use hydrocortizone cream, and it did work decently. My store director liked me and thought my work ethic was great, and I asked if kroger would be willing to pay for it as a courtesy. He told me to deal with it if i wanted a job. (Ill admit, maybe i was out of line to ask such a thing) And its pretty cheap @ about 5 dollars a week, so i dropped it.
Another 7 months passed and i was promoted to manager, and I have a new baby daughter who is about 4mo. old. Now I cant use my steroid cream all the time beause of baby and so my hands start to bleed again (not very sanitary), The switch to ecolab made things worse as well, now the cream doesnt even help any more. This was putting a lot of stress on me and my wife and in turn I asked my new store director if he could transfer me to a new department. He offered bakery as head baker, He said that because I was so quality oriented and hard working that i would be a great fit.
Now, about the bakery: the manager hired her daughter with supposedly phony paperwork, the new store director and this new bakery manager have known each other for 10+ years, she (bakery manager) yells at her employees, she has fired countless employees ( Or made their life so miserable that they quit) including a 7 year baker that has been at this one store her entire baking career, longer than the bakery manager by a long shot. AkA she was a bad A** baker. And during the year that I held in being deli manager I had seen roughly 8 bakers: getting yelled at, literally crying in the store directors office about their treatment, and either walkout or get fired. No corrective action was ever taken.
My experience in the bakery was the same, to simplify things. I stayed late, came in early, and all the while worked off the clock to get things right. My manager constantly got on my case for taking too long. So i went faster. Got my shift done in 6 hrs consistantly and helped out with other things to get on her good side; her responses: wow yesterday you shouldnt have had 6 hrs worth of work go faster, or your quality of product is lacking slow down. No way to win. At the same time this was going on, I am breaking up with my wife, now walking over an hr one way to and from work. Beause I didnt want to inconvenience the bakery, i still worked, never asking to take time off; and I just asked that she doesnt push me in fear id either break down or blow up. Her response goes as follows, “there are thousands of other people out there who go through the same thing, I did, and Im fine so stop complaining.”

As it all came to an end, as it was destined, she was never happy with anything I did. I endured her. She had broke down crying to the store Director because I told her she was acting very improfessional and rude (ref.1). And on top of all the drama, there was a huge sale going on. My workload increased tremendously. And no help was recieved. At the same time, our oven was breaking down every other day, and our dish washer was out of commission, I asked manager if she would get them fixed; she said to deal with it. At this point I cant bare being in her prescence, and since i cant win with her, I decided that id do what I can while im there and go home. If I didnt get everything done it was a problem, if I stayed over it was a problem. So I started leaving at the end of my scheduled shift rather than staying *suprise*. I got a call from my store director asking if Id walked out on him; at this point im furious because Im apparently walking out when i work all 40 hrs scheduled. I explained to him that she could have given more help and everything would be done, explained how I cant win if I stay, and how Ive been getting treated. Of course Im the bad guy.
Now we sit down and talk. just me and store director. He agrees with me completely, says she is out of line. I tell him that I didnt want tell him beause it would just be wasting his time, he knows how he dealt with the last 3 people who complained about her. Yet he gets defensive and says that he took extensive corrective action with her, but she is so valuable that she cant go. . . hmmm.
So he calls her up, we chat us three. He flips a 180. Now hes on her side, like ive seen time and time again. Yep im supposed to order, bake everything perfect first time, and my normal workload should only be 4hrs so i can help with other things around the department; extra work is easy. They continue to tell me how lucky I am that im in their store because other stores wouldnt be so nice (hint, hint for any one looking for a job with Kroger). And after all of this, he continues to tell me how things will change and how if I stay with them my life will get better; but im done, tell them its too late, Im leaving.
This is where it gets real interesting. She says that Im bringing too much of my home life to work. He tells me its unwise to quit without having another job already. I tell them I already have a couple automatic hire jobs that my work ethic have provided. He says im a bad father and have poor character. (Observation: unprofessional, this definately shows his character, and on a personal level its just rude.) They continue to tell me that I dont work hard and will surely fail at my next job, *scoff* that is if you get a new job. She complaines how she does so much for me but I never do anything for her or the company, and continues on with telling me that I inconvenience her life so much. (Observation: she is selfish, and devious) I voice my observations and explain how I have worked for free just to get practice with baking at their standards. Store director tells me of how he can fire me for working off the clock.
Now at this point, Im not even going to provide them with two weeks. I dont care, they dont deserve the courtesy. I am disgusted with this place now. My 3 month experience with Baking was horrible.
AFTERMATH
I was on site with my new job in 3 days. Just like every other job I have had, im given a raise within a few weeks and am told of how great of a work ethic I have. After one month I go back to the store to find that store director has been demoted and manager fired. New staff in place. I run into the 7 year baker in the parking lot, (who is, by the way, who gave me an in to the job in the first place.) She is currently trying to transfer back to the store. I went from making 17/hr as manager to 10/hr as a landscaper and cant tell you how much happier I am. Ive already gotten a couple raises from there and know that it wont be long till im restored to what I had before.

(ref.1) the story of her breaking down and crying is more complicated of course; so for you frivilous readers out there heres some insight on the matter.
The history is pretty consistent: I was taught at a different store because there are better bakers than her. when I came to her store she literally told me to forget everything I learned while at said store and not to take any advice from any one other than her because, as she said ,”Other than the head bakery manager of our devision, no one else in our company can bake but me.” (And yeah she really did say that). After only a couple days working for her she started saying things like, “Ive already taught you how to do that, figure it out.” when i asked a question; when in most cases she didnt ever teach me; the other few cases she gave me half a**ed instruction. She constantly preached how she is here to help me. When I did revert back to what I was taught at the other store she would pick up my product, tell me what was wrong with it, tell me to fix it, and either walk away or tell me for 45min. the same thing over and over without giving any instruction on how better to accomplish what she wants done. This was a rutheless cycle. (example: one recipe i was taught as follows: bake coffee cake, put in filling, strusel, glaze. easy. Then She said I was using too much filling, so I cut back, she was happy with the product. One time I forgot about the cakes and Left without knowing they were incomplete. I never heard the end of it the next day. She said, “You didnt even put the filling and strusel on!” I told her my procedure and she gets all huffy with me saying, “I thought I already taught you this, you put the filling and strusel on before it goes into the oven!” (keep in mind im leaving out some parts just to simplify, I was taught to toast the strusel) Okay so while still frozen, I do as she instructed. I didnt know, however, that strusel evaporates in the oven (or something, ’cause it dissappears, vanishes, poof! What have you.) Now its, “You didnt put on enough strusel!” Okay, next attempt I drown the frozen cake in strusel; really quite afraid of her calling me a smart a**. Once again, “You didnt put enough on again, I already showed you!” Now I argue, “No you just told me. How about this, you show me how to do it, and ill copy you.” Her response, “I cant do it all for you, figure it out; thats how real bakers do it.” Now my inner monologue is firing up, “Sh**! Ive been here for a week and now im suppossed to be at Chef Ramsey status!” Okay, so I continue to try and fail because it cooks differently with every different variation she wants me to spin on it. Then I get this, “It looked so good before, what happened?” Her not knowing that she was referring to how I was doing it the way the “good” baker taught me. But every time I bring up that thats how it looked when I did it the way I was originally taught, she would flip the same card, “Nobody is good but me, listen to me not them.”)
It got to the point where I would ask a question and she would walk away. Id argue that if she wants me to do it right, she cant act like that. Bam once I said that my day was over, Every five minutes id have her breathing down my neck saying I was doing something wrong, but she wouldnt tell me how it was wrong or how to fix it. So naturally I turned to all of the other employees for advice; which is also the wrong thing to do. She ended up yelling at me constantly saying that I just dont have the eye for baking, she would throw away perfectly good product just because it was barely off what she wanted. (not mark down, throw away) And at the same time, every time I had her bosses come in while she was away, I got nothing but praise and one bit of advice, “Its too dark.” I alwas thought my product looked burnt, but thats the only way I could get manager lady to be happy. . . Once I baked lighter, she told me, “They dont know what my customers want, do it the way I say not my bosses.” Yeah that was easy to explain next time they came in. In turn she made my life horrible for explaining to them why I didnt start baking lighter product.
“Improfessional, rude” is what I said. You decide.

I hope you found this as entertaining as I now do.
Anyway, thats my experience. Smith’s store 151 bountiful ut.

I maid a complaint about a Kroger to the so called complaint department. And although I gave valid information regarding the issue and had proof to back it up I was told that once a manager makes a decision about an issue regarding a customers issue that decision can not be overturned! I was off struck! What ever happened to the customer is always right! Do managers now have the power to decided how to treat customers soly? If so no wonder customer service has become something shameful!

When you start the new date (Wednesdays) for ads to be effective, how does this complicate the Senior Discount given on Tuesdays? Now seniors won’t be able to use the discount until the ad is almost over. In the meantime a NEW ad has arrived in the Sunday papers which isn’t effective until Wednesday and the senior is still waiting to use last Sunday’s specials on Tuesday. Will you change the day the seniors get a discount? It is going to be messy, confusing, and NOT endear your company to those who have this discount. Please think about that.

Why is it that your stores keep on raising the price of Old Yeller dog food $2.00 at a time? Your generic Kroger dog food remains on the shelves as dogs don’t even want to smell it. Is it that the reason you raise the price on Old Yeller so your brand is sold. I am tired of seeing this brand price go up and up and you do not even issue coupons on your register receipts anymore nor you publish any. I have 5 large dogs including a dane and a lab. They consume one and a half bags of 50 pounds of dog food every week and a half. You need to review this practice, I just may go to a feed store and get another brand for less. And by the way, you are NOT cheaper than Walmart. The grocery products in your stores keep going up at a higher pace than Walmart.

I work for a company that does business with Kroger. Yesterday, a colleague and myself were having a disagreement, seated in the deli area of the Kroger in Brandon, Ms. It was before our work day started. I have since been told that the store manager, claimed he could play a tape (voice) of our conversation. If that is correct, it is a violation of my civil rights to privacy, eating in a customer assigned area of the store.
I have contacted Kroger and am waiting on response as to if they do record personal conversations while you are eating in the customer assigned deli area. Having a video tape of your actions is one thing, but voice recordings of conversations is way over the top. I am licensed in the State of Mississippi to sell security systems (ADT, Comcast) and have never heard of such a thing. The store manager, Mr. Drake, needs to stay out of business that does not concern him.

Dear Kroger GM Store #520,
I would like to take a moment just to smile and applaud your local store #520 on University/Berry St. The great effort and care that your management team have put into giving back to the community as well as concerning themselves with the needs of customers is unparalleled. I am a former pro international basketballer who recently put away gym shoes for a life of giving back to our kiddos who need it here in greater Fort Worth. I am a product of many of the rougher neighborhoods we have to offer, and being now a middle school gym coach, I know the importance of good leadership in the community, as well as in our homes. On my mission to empower our community with purpose and pride, I could not help but stop and notice the rapport and delicate touch the members of your team have with the customers who come to you. So impressed was I, that I mentioned what I do to a member of your management team, and just like that they showed how involved you guys are with community relations. In little time, your staff had put together a plan of action, greatly helping me and my organization with the materials we needed to continue our “basketball fun camps” that are actually empowering motivational talks dressed up as exciting basketball clinics with free prizes for kids. I believe wholeheartedly in what we do. I am sentimental in the idea that anyone could share and help in that vision. Simply put, you have. I was able to reserve my funds to cover other expenses because of the support you provided and that is a huge help to us. Your team is incredible.
I would like to especially thank the efforts of assistant manager Ms.Tonya and Mrs. Bobbi Marshall, the store manager who dedicated her time and effort not only to running a smoothly-operated store, but also to serving ones who need it most. She was a God-send to us. This lady is not only one of the most pleasant people to be around, but also one of the most creative in organizing a plan that I’d seen in a while. I definitely recognize her true leadership qualities, and if you know any better, I hope you recognize as well. If it matters at all to general management, we would love to see Mrs.Marshall in a higher-level management position where she could be of more executive use. People like this don’t come along very often who are hard-working and disciplined, yet creative and grounded. She lives out your creed of social responsibility, would be quite welcome anytime on our community organizing team and I’m positive she would leave as lasting an effect as a community leader as she does with helping with the responsibility of store duties . As you can see, she leaves quite an impression. This is the same message that will be relayed to regional managers and corporate team in Cincinnati, OH. I am inspired by her ethics and because of her, the kids we help can truly say that we chose the “Right Store” at the “Right Price”. Thanks again.

Disgusted with Kroger's January 24, 2014 at 3:34 pm

I have been working for Kroger’s for about 2 weeks now. In that time I went from being super excited about joining the Kroger’s family, to extremely discouraged and looking for other employment. Having worked in a bakery department and as a cake decorator for 4+ years, I was excited to be offered a bakery position. The interviewer talked very highly of the Kroger company and told me how easily attainable promotions were if you were a hard worker and new your stuff. Even more exciting for me as I was getting hired in as a Part Time Bakery associate after spending the last 4 years working as an Assistant Bakery Manager/Assistant Store Manager. Kroger’s only hire’s outside management staff if you have a degree or they promote from within the company, which is understandable but also disappointing as I’ve got more experience working in the industry than the experience a degree alone would give you. But I looked at it as a challenge. I took the part time job, as that is pretty much all any company is offering in this economy, and set out to make it my goal to shine and move up as quick as possible to a level that reflects my skills, experience, and abilities. During the three days of computer training (which they had me taking multiple department tests and learning programs as they weren’t sure where I would be working) I had the opportunity to sit in on multiple store huddles. It was kind of exciting to hear how well the company was doing and other information that they shared with the associates and managers. During one huddle, the store manager informed some of the new employee’s (just completed their 90 days) that “you do not want to make Kroger’s a career”. I guess I appreciate the Store Manager’s honesty but really? As having worked as an Assistant Store Manager for a store that I helped set up, You MUST Take Pride in Your Store and Your Company. Not tell people not to work there. That made me worry a little bit but it didn’t waiver me. Kroger’s was now my “New Family” and I was going to be a loyal employee and customer. When I finally joined the bakery department for actual department training, I was very disappointed to find out that I would not be baking anything. Ok, so a few weeks of the small stuff training, no big, figure they’ll “train” me to bake per corporate standards after learning some of their basic ways of doing things. Boy was I upset to find out that it would probably be close to 1-2 yrs before I was trained to bake. Hello!?!? Assistant bakery manager a.k.a. full time baker! So disappointed to find out that my skills and abilities would not be utilized anytime in the near future. Department manger was ecstatic to learn that I new how to decorate cakes. Had only about 40 some odd pictures to show off. So she walked me through her case set up, quantities, etc and set me the task of decorating cakes and such. No Problem, I love to do that. Let’s just say that our views of cake decoration differ A LOT. She stated, “I’m only Kroger trained in cake decoration and I hate doing cakes, but I’m the only one that does”. I can understand that, its not a job for everyone. It is my passion however so I take pride in the product I put out. She insisted that I quickly mass produce cakes, not even wanting me to take the 2 minutes to prepare the bags to be able to offer an assortment of decorated cakes. Who wants to come in looking for a cake and the only different option you have is what flavor cake? I know for a fact no corporate manager would approve of her ideal cake case assortment as there is none. “pick your choice of 4 flavors of cake all decorated exactly the same!” Oh yeah, that’s what I want when I go looking for a cake. She also informed me that she only made cakes that we had kits for or print outs for. No freehand what-so-ever because she didn’t get paid enough to “waste her time for ungrateful customers”. By this point I’m ready to cry because this is not the attitude to have. As I’m frosting away a customer walks up and asks the Manager about making her a monkey cake. Mind you I had just gotten done browsing through the decorator manual to make sure I was doing things according to corporate policy, even if I wasn’t being trained that way, and had seen a few different monkey themed cakes and such in the book. She proceeds to tell the customer that “I don’t have any monkey cake kits nor pictures so I can’t make a monkey cake.” Well, I took it upon myself to show the customer the picture’s that I had found and offered to take her cake order. She said she appreciated my helpfulness but was going to go elsewhere for her cake. Way to go manager, you lost Kroger’s a customer. It also might interest the corporate/district bakery manager that the specialty store made cakes that, at any other grocery store are mandatory to be made and kept out for sale, are “mandatory but we don’t make them up because corporate doesn’t care as long as the case is full” according to the department manager. I’m sorry but my experience tells me that these items are high sale items and they are missing a lot of sales by not even offering the product. Makes me wonder if the customers even know these products exist. And I don’t know if its the same at all Kroger’s, but this store is marking down to managers special prices as much product as it freshly bakes every day. That’s a lot of money not made when they are daily selling only the items retailed at about 10 cents above cost.

I am absolutely appalled by everything I am finding out and witnessing at Kroger’s. I am in the process of finding a new job where not only do they actually care about their customers, the products offered, and their Store, but one that isn’t going to falsely excite you about the benefits of working for them and then have it all be lies.

I was excited to join the Kroger’s family but now I can’t wait to get out. Which is very disappointing to me as the customers seem very nice and so does the regular staff.

If more information is needed, such as store location, please reply to my comment via email address provided.

All Kroger stores have to make the same cakes and other products, so that customer can go from Kroger to Kroger and find the same items.

If one Kroger items better than the others, it makes the whole chain look bad.

Shane March 6, 2014 at 3:42 pm

Okay it is important to offer the same products at different stores for the benefit of the chain. But you also need diversity. Kroger made the decision to make all banners (such as king soopers, or dillons) keep their names rather than calling them all Kroger stores supposedly to keep individuality and healthy competition, as it was explained to me in many company sponsored meetings. Also, I know in my store that when they hired an extremely talented individual to free hand cakes; sales went through the roof. And many people came to this store specifically to special order cakes; which makes much more money than the established kroger cakes. They also wouldnt allow pricing for these free hand cakes or specialty cakes if they didnt intend to sell them.
I know that in my division they encourage cake decorators to make specialty cakes for display, and the gal In my store loved her job; and continued on to train new cake decorators in my district.

Two weeks ago, I asked the Kroger Pharmacy at Holden, WV. to order a drug called Tykosin for my husband, as he was due to run out in ywo weeks and they don’t keep it in stock, so always have to order it. It was never ordered or never arrived and today, my husband had two capsules left. Do you know that tikosyn is used for atrial fibrillation and his doctor instructed him not to miss a dose as it could cause a fatal arrhythmia. He takes 500 mg. twice daily and must take it at almost the same time, give or take a few minutes. For the past year, I’ve obtained this med for him with no problem, as I always called in plenty of time for the pharmacy to order it. It did not come in this time and I had to go to Walmart, who gave me 6 capsules for him until they could order it. I hope it comes in in time. He would already be out of medicine if the doctor had not given him a few free samples. Is this any way to treat your faithful customers? Could have killed him. Thank you and I think you should certainly check into this.

I purchased 2 fandango movie cards for xmas at my local kroger only to find out that the movie theatres around my house do not accept them. kroger should not be selling them in there michigan stores as the theatres that take them are far and few between. Now I am stuck with 2 gift cards and out 50 dollars. Fandango would not help me nor would Kroger. I therefore will not be shopping at your store any longer as there are other stores in the area.

I Carlos Barfield would like to take legal action against my former employer (Kroger) for wrongful termination, discrimination, loss of enjoyment of life and punitive damages. Feb 2013 I was suspended for a company violation, picking up an employee and bringing them to work while on the clock. I find this wrong because management (Tim Stewart) had asked me to on several occasions. Myself being the Meat Manager, who commonly makes deliveries and pick ups, felt I was doing company work. In Jan 2013 Tim Stewart transferred and new management (Vaughn Shears) came in and felt like I committed a violation and suspended me pending a human resource investigation. A week after my suspension produce manager (Brandon Campbell) was suspended for picking up the same employee. We both appealed to our union to resolve the issue. We went through months of appeals to the company and eventually we both had arbitration court in October with a decision in December. I was denied my decision and Brandon was awarded his job and back pay. Finding this information disgusted me. I was overwhelmed!!! There is no reason why an employee since 1988 with a clean record shouldn’t have been granted the same. Since Brandon (being a white man) and myself (being a black man) were suspended for the same reason but received different results for the same allegedly violation, I had to think DISCRIMINATION!! I’ve been a loyal manager for the company for 8 years never to be reprimanded in 18 years. I seek a settlement of my job back, back pay, and punitive damages OR a settlement of 4 million for WRONGFUL TERMINATION and DISCRIMINATION.

Why are you so quick to throw the term discrimination around. You should be deeply ashamed.

Upon reading the above statement and the respective replies, I must say I am deeply troubled. Firstly, the comment, “you are not to leave the building while on the clock” is true, but it applies to both employees. If his claim is true, with regard to picking up another employee at the request of management, then he should be applauded, not reprimanded. Secondly, I don’t believe he was “so quick” as you put it, to throw the term discrimination around. After having gone through the appropriate steps to regain employment, an employee, irrespective of color, who has had a clean record of employment since 1988, does not obtain his job back. All the while another worker, who happens to be white does get his job back. Well, from an outside perspective, I notice no difference in their situations other than color. So don’t make a man feel ashamed for his American right to seek legal recourse for what he deems a wrongful discriminatory termination. (Idiots)

To add to my previous reply, who would be in the wrong? The store manager who asks an employee to leave while on company time? (which I’m sure is strictly proscribed, pursuant to the terms of your hand book.) Or the employee who did what his boss requested of him? (Duh)

Well my complaint is, the way toy price your items. I drink the Kroger tea. I used to drink a lot of the sweet now only the diet. I drink it a lot so you know I watch the price. The highest price I have seen it was Thanksgiving at the high price of $2.49. That was a very high jump from 2 gallons for $3.00 to $2.49. for one gallon. I was about to sacrifice and start to buy it anyway until I was at, Walmart and their diamond brand was $2.49 a gallon. I have seen your guys at Walmart stores writing down prices, In fact once I talked to one. He was making sure I get the best deal at Kroger’s. After Thanksgiving Kroger’s tea went back down to the price of two gallons for $3.00. Now just before Christmas the tea is back to $2.49 a gallon. I believe that you are now trying to keep up with the Walmart prices. Diamond tea is a name brand tea. Even if they sold it for 10 cent a gallon I would not buy it. It taste like plastic. Kroger tea is a store brand and that’s what you should remember before you start pricing items just Walmart has an item for that price. What other items do you do like that? Tell guys before they bring prices back to you make sure you know if its a name brand price or not before we push the price on to our loyal consumers.

Hello I am from store #409 and our store manager Tony Bowling has been Harassing me ever since i got back from military leave. He has even went as far to tell me that I am less of an employee than I used to be. he is constantly singling me out amongst my other employees and making sure that I KNOW I’m not doing my job correctly. on top of that he expects me to do three or four peoples jobs at once. today I was cleaning shelves as well as being the only one he made go push in carts. I would like something to be done about this before I take it on up to Union or maybe even police for a stressful work environment.
thank you! once again my name is Christopher Alexander Nantz, in case he wonders who is filing a complaint.

Hi. I’ve been working for you for 7 months now. In the coming years you wont see anyone sticking around and proud to say they have worked for you for 10 plus years. You refuse set schedules and give zero hours. I made more money at Walmart and they treat their employees like a complete pile of dog s***. I can understand America cutting back to part time workers. But who the hell can live off 0-12 hours???????? When I tell people how you workers are given no hours. They say “Wow, I can’t believe I shop there”. You show zero care for your employees. Only care about paying your executives fat checks. Cops and soldiers should make that much money. Not monkeys in business suits.

I am an employee for smiths in Las Vegas. I am also a customer. I have worked for smiths for 11 yrs.and in starbucks for the last 8 yrs. I use to enjoy going to work and seeing everyone. We had time to talk to customers and really get to know them and feel relaxed and do a very good job in all areas. Now it is horrible going to work !!!!!! Our hours have been cut so bad and sometimes we work by ourselves. We have lines of people and dished in sink piled high we need to change coffee every 15 minutes. It is so stressful sometimes I just want to walk out. If starbucks knew about this I’m sure they’d be upset. There is suppost to be 2 people all the time starbucks way. I 65 and was going to retire next yrs. because I enjoyed my job and I am going to retire soon. It’s just sad how Kroger treats there people. You want your employees to do the job of 2 or 3 people, not give anything in return but the” quote your lucky to have a job. ” The big wigs come in and find everything wrong at the store and blame the store director and we are only humans not machines. Mario is a great boss he tries his hardest and is very fair. Everyone can see the company treats him like crap too. I just hope this company wakes us soon.

We sent a complaint regarding the dysfunction of digital coupons around the first of December. We’ve received 5-6 generic emails sense then saying that the information will be “passed along” but with no specific remedy; along with a couple of customer satisfaction surveys and one email saying “fuel points” had been added to our card as a “courtesy” for our inconvenience; and was there ” anything else Kroger could help us with. We kept the original coplaint short and used small words. We had a complaint; so you want us to fill out 2 customer satisfaction surveys because? We now have additional fuel points on our card and because “those helpful people” didn’t even bother to look at our purchase history, well we don’t purchase Kroger fuel. And well, if you’re not of assistance in response to a complaint, it’s in very poor taste to ask if there is “anything else you can be of assistance with”. Your digital coupon program is still lacking and you can take the fuel point back, they won’t be used and you’re going to spend money tracking them in your system. We’ll start shopping for a new store and a new credit card that hopefully provides “Customer Service”. Merry Christmas…

I want to make you aware of why my family, and quite a few friends will no longer consider Kroger for their grocery or fuel needs. I’ve been shopping at Kroger for around 30 years and almost exclusively once you started the rewards for fuel program. Not anymore. I bought gas at Brookstone Kroger (Acworth) on Wednesday October 23rd and as I was filling my tank the pump cut off and would not reactivate even though my tank wasn’t full. The booth attendant kept insisting my tank was full, and that there was no problem; my tank was slightly past the halfway mark. The very next time I drove my car, it made a horrendous noise and died. According to my mechanic, I had a fuel pump failure due to water tainted gas in the pump and was encouraged to contact the last place I bought gas and file a complaint. The store manager at Brookstone Kroger was very condescending and kept insisting that he had heard no other complaints; only after a 5 minute conversation (confrontation) grudgingly agreed to file a claim. This past Monday, Mr. Calloway from customer service in Cincinnati called to tell me that Kroger wasn’t responsible for the repair because his report said there were no issues with the fuel. And since their reports are all that matters, they will not be reimbursing me for my loss. As I was trying to plead my case to Mr. Calloway (reiterating the pump issues), he actually told me “to calm down and stop being hysterical”, and reiterated their gas report removed them from responsibility. After that I told him that even though my yearly spend at Kroger Grocery and Kroger Fuel would not seriously impact Kroger’s bottom line I would no longer be a Kroger customer, he actually said, and I quote, “That’s fine with me”! Kroger claims Customer Satisfaction, but only as it relates to a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk. When it really matters to their customers, Kroger apparently abdicates from all responsibility. After my experience with the Fuel Attendant, Brookstone Store Manager and Customer Service Representative it is apparent that this is a systemic disregard for customers and not an anomaly. I know that removing the small amount of $$ I spend for gas and groceries annually will not affect their bottom line one bit, but my family will not continue to support a business where customer satisfaction is nothing more than a slogan. Brookstone Publix, located across the street, is now the recipient of all grocery and pharmaceutical purchases; Quiktrip and Racetrac will be our choice for fuel. Recap of my Kroger experience, $17.85 for the initial gas, $688 for new pump and fuel injection cleaning, and $35 to refill my tank…that one trip to Kroger Fuel – $740.85.

I thought my wife of 49+ years was going to cry.
Before your Photoshop manager Jennifer was promoted into store management, she had become pals with my wife and used pictures my wife provided for all the display pieces at your 3165 Dayton Xenia Road, Beavercreek OH 45434 store.

Season after season every picture in the department had been provided by my wife, Carol, and Jennifer also used Carol’s pictures exclusively in the departments two sample photo albums as well as your sample calendar.

When Jennifer was promoted and no one was in charge of the Photoshop, I asked Mr. Daniel Walker (General Merchandise Manager) what would become of the calendar and sample photo albums and I offered to purchase them. Mr. Walker thought the items should be given to my wife, but he suggested I speak to Store Manager Evelyn Miller about it, which I did.

Miss Miller said the calendar and sample photo albums were still used by the department, but that when they were done with them, my wife could have them. When Mr. Walker went to another store, we again verified the arrangement with Miss Miller, and she confirmed the promise she had made.

We have shopped this Marketplace since it opened (as we had shopped the old Kroger store than preceded it) and used the Photoshop scores of times, but when we went to the store today, the Photoshop kiosk was gone

Since Miss Miller had specifically told me that when the Photoshop was finished with my wife’s pictures I should go to Customer Service and that I’d find them there, we went to Customer Service but the young man there knew nothing of the item’s whereabouts. He contacted the Non-Foods department manager (Daniel, not Walker) who then asked a clerk to look for the items. It took two clerks and two tries but the three items were rescued from a baskart in the back room and my wife hugged the clerk who retrieved them.

As we were leaving I saw Miss Miller and told her that my wife was going to call Cincinnati in tears but that our persistence and Non-Food employee’s patience had saved the day. When I made the point to Miss Miller that she should not make promises and then forget all about them and that customer’s remember what she says to them, Miss Miller became very defensive and abrupt.

Had we not rescued the promised items, that result would have meant we were lied to, twice, by Miss Miller. My wife would have been in tears, and it was clear Mill Miller did not care in the least.

When the Photoshop was removed from the sales area, Miss Miller should have put the items at Customer Service as she had promised.

Miss Miller fancies herself as being “Queen” which your Zone Manager and others apparently encourage, but I would respectfully point out to you that “Queen” and “Store Manger” are very different offices.

We would request you replace “Queen” Miller with an actual Store Manager who keeps promises, or is humane enough to not make untrue promises in the first place.

While we very much enjoy the Beavercreek Marketplace and while my wife and I are well known by dozens of your employees there, at the moment we feel very much alienated because of Miss Miller’s uncaring attitude. She very flippantly told me today that “Your wife can still call them: all they’ll do is call me.” That was a response appropriate for a Queen, but not a Kroger Manager, and it is a response that is insulting toward you.

After getting turned down for a free email offer (card loaded via email but did not take) at the Ralphs located on Le Conte Ave store at UCLA, LA, CA-called customer service.

“Dead From The Neck Up” describes the mentality level of the two Ralphs customer service reps I spoke with trying to resolve a “Betty Crocker Free Offer” via email. 888-437-3496 Customer Service???

Rep #1 – 11/18/13 – 10:31 AM –
Moron #1 Stated – The reason you were not given a free Betty Crocker Muffin Mix because we show two persons registered in the same house. Makes sense even if the 2nd person (a paraplegic) did not receive any product.

When asked if she was certified she asked “yes I am a certified customer rep.”
I asked – does that give you moron status? “Yes – I am fully certified.”

Rep #2 – 11/18/2013 –
Moron #2 Stated – “Am sorry but cannot find your account on my computer.
Try calling back later today.” I asked her – “Did you take the Schmuck Truck to work today?” She answered – “No, I do not drive.”

Ignorance and Stupidity is – STILL LEGAL!

It took me almost a year to figure this out but finally it hit me, you don’t value me as a customer. I use to get coupons in the mail and they stopped. I called the customer service line and they send me coupons that I don’t use…not the customer appreciation ones. I sent them back. Since then, I called and did get a letter telling me to call so you all could straighten this matter out. I called. What did I get? a bunch of lies. First I was told they send the coupons out every 4 months, which is a lie because family members get them every month. Then I was told that my spending went down, another lie. I spend at least, if not more, $ 400.00 every month. then I was told that I was being tested by Krogers to see if I’d stay faithful to the store. Then I was told that I would be getting coupons in the mail in a few days…never happened. All this bull in one phone call. It’s a shame that you treat your customers like this. I have been shopping in your store for 15 yrs…I am 68 yrs old and on a fixed income. thanks a lot for letting me know how you really feel.

I’ve been working for food 4 less for the past 13 years and over these years I have seen how you want to move forward and stay fresh as a company, and every effort you make is to generate the money you need, unfortunately you have forgotten about your employees and we have become less than a number to the company and as such, we are treated. But you have forgotten that your staff is part of your profits, WITHOUT EMPLOYEES THERE’S NO HAPPY CUSTOMERS

People like me who have being with the company for more than 10 years, we come to work everyday, we are responsible and committed, we suffer high levels of stress to achieve the goals of the company, our company. I have seen many co-workers retire for stress, many have suffered heart attacks and some even killed themselves because of it.
I feel that there seems to be A CAMPAIGN to eliminate all those people who have the old contracts because AS YOU SEE IT we make to much money and you believe that new hires making $7.50 p/h will do the work we do, but we (the old contract) are keeping the company. The new hires come and go because the pay is not enough for the amount of work they are asked to do and most of time you need 5 new hires to do the job of ONE old contract employee. At the end you are spending even more money.

Now it is me who is under your magnifying glass to be fired, today may be my last day with the company. You blame me for buying markdowns, what’s wrong with that, if it was by the permission of my MANAGERS and as long as the items were not being under price. This just seems as an excuse because I’m not the only one who does it, and at the end of the day I am too your customer. (MORE SALES, MORE HOURS, MORE HAPPY EMPLOYEES)
The truth is that according to you “I MAKE A LOT OF MONEY” but whom of you wants to do my job, and earn what I earn, support your family, could you? For 8 years I have not had a significant raise, it seems unfair. I hope you read this and you do something about it, because we deserve better treatment and respect.

Your company has a very dubious Time Keeping System for your employees. To elucidate, those employees who are required to Sweep your floors every 1/2 hour must record “The Sweep” by punching in their own employee #. Occasionally, this causes the employee in question to accidentally Clock themselves Out of their shift. No big deal right? Wrong! If your store managers were more Proactive about making up for the lost time this would be no big deal. But from my own experience they are not. I can guarantee you that neither the IRS nor Revenue Canada would appreciate the potential Lost Revenue they will not be able to tax at the end of each Tax Year due to this BS and Inept Time Keeping System. Solution: force your store managers to be more amiable to making up the shortages, or this writer will contact (Harangue) both the IRS and Revenue Canada until H E Double Tooth Picks freezes over.

POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SEVERAL INSTANCES OVER 3 MONTHS
3 months ago I asked a store manager to add a product to the store. He refused so I contacted a local dist,manager he said he would look into it (MARCO). He worked through a Regional Brand Manager Gary Wenzel who told me after 3 mo. they would get me some product only to lose it in a warehouse. He refused my calls for over a week and then insulted me. I also consulted Kroger’s customer service # only to also leave frustrated at how poorly trained they are in customer service issues. By the way the product I asked added is a product that is Kroger Owned. Seems like a no brainer!

Today I went to your store to pick up my French vanilla Kroger coffee, it comes in whole beans so I have to grind it… I don’t mind I’ve done it for a long time enjoying this coffee. Today, your coffee grinder was gone….. Curious since you sell whole beans that need grinding. Asking the store manager where it might be, they got rid of it… Excuse me?? Who was the genius who thought this was a good idea?? Reaching new lows in stupidity, the person who thought this was a good idea, should lose their job, and the people who didn’t question it, and instead implemented it, are not doing a good job, and obviously in the wrong business. Where do I go to grind these whole bean coffee?? It’s not like you are offering me a choice to have it already ground… They are whole beans only!!! If u are getting rid of this option for your customers, which is also stupid, but stupid ideas seem to be your trend until you fire the people who think them up…. Stupidity will be what we as customers will think of when we think of krogers. Don’t you think it would of been a good idea to keep the coffee grinder around for your customers, since you are selling whole bean coffee??????? And when you stop offering whole beans all together… Than and only than do you get rid of the coffee grinder… Duh… It doesn’t take a rain surgeon to think this one out intelligently….. And that is why, who ever thought and implemented this, needs to be place some where …..anywhere……where thinking isn’t a priority……steaming mad customer at store in Sterling Heights, on Schoenherr and canal rd.

Kroger Food Store 346
1715 Howell Mill Rd.
Atlanta, GA 30318

Enclosed please find your $10.00 Gift Certificate #9603513. I was shocked that you had the gull and audacity to belittle a case of discrimination that occurred in your store, and expect to pacify me with this gift certificate.

On June 15th, when I entered your store I never expected your floral manager to blatantly discriminate against my autistic daughter, but she did. When my daughter asked me if she could have a balloon, I told her we would ask. The (African-American) floral manager, explained that do to a helium shortage they could no longer give courtesy balloons to kids in your store. This was the second time she had told us of this non-existent shortage and refused to give my daughter a balloon. (We frequent several Kroger stores and have always gotten a balloon without a problem) As we were shopping my daughter kept asking why she couldn’t get a balloon from that lady, and finally began to cry out of frustration. Finally she calmed down and as we were getting ready to leave, we witnessed your floral manager giving an African-American child one of the complimentary Kroger balloons, and a hug. The helium shortage must have ended as suddenly as it began.

After leaving the store, I called and asked for the manager on duty. I believe the person who answered said his name was Mr. Landen. He apologized and said he would speak to the floral manager and would have either Ms. Garcia or Mr. Schwartz follow up with me the next day. During our conversation I found it odd that on several occasions, (four or five) he said there was no need to call Kroger Corporate, as this would be handled in house.

Ms. Garcia called the next day. She was very apologetic and kept offering a gift certificate during our initial phone conversation, explaining that the floral manager was “talked to” and that there should be no problems going forward. I told you then that was nothing more than a slap on the hand for such an act of discrimination. Paula Dean just lost her endorsements and TV Show for reportedly having said the “N” word. Several broadcasters have been suspended or fired for having made an improper comment of a discriminatory nature while in public view. I said that while I didn’t want anyone to lose their job, there needed to be some kind of action taken, be a suspension or something along those lines. You asked me what I wanted, and I said I would have to get back to you after I calmed down.

Once I was back on feet, after a bout with my crohns, brought on by the stress from this appalling act of discrimination, I called you back. In that conversation I again said I didn’t want the women to lose her job, however she needed to be suspended and/or have her donate a month’s income to Autism Awareness, and send me a certificate, since you had already offered one several times. You stated that you need to speak to Mr. Schwartz, and that you would get back to me.

I never heard back from you? However Mr. Schwartz called me a few days later. He apologized for the incident and said that they had spoken to corporate and they had received the okay to give children courtesy balloons, and the floral manager understood the policy. He than apologized again and asked if the next time I was in your store I might ask for him to put a face to a voice. He acted as if the matter was a non-issue, and this was the end of it.

I’m sorry but you don’t blatantly discriminate against someone and expect it to be forgiven with some empty apologies, and the underwhelming information that anytime we are in the store feel free to ask for a balloon. I told my husband (Mike) about Mr. Schwartz’s call and how I felt, which led him to send an email to the Kroger Customer Service Center, in hopes of reaching someone higher up the management ladder, that wasn’t going to try and cover up the incident.

A couple days later (June, 28), Arthur called my husband and told him someone would be getting back to us in a few days. In what seems to be the Kroger “CYA” policy, Mr. Schwartz, called on July 1, leaving a message that he would be in, asking Mike to call.

My husband finally caught up to Mr. Schwartz on July 9th. Mike told me that Mr. Schwartz assured him that he had gotten corporate approval to provide courtesy balloons to kids in their store and that we should never have a problem again. Mike said Mr. Schwartz said he could not ask his employee to make any charitable contributions as it would be a hardship on the employee, and that he would send me a gift certificate along with a formal apology, but that was all he would do.

I’m sorry, but “hardship on the employee”, she is lucky to have employers who are so willing to tolerate her actions and not impose any form of discipline. It was not a problem for her to impose some hardship on my family; from my daughter being discriminated against, to my crohns flair up, causing my husband to miss work to care for us, we have suffered emotionally and financially. Kroger shows their concern for their customer with a generic apology letter, and a $10 gift certificate? I assume you have been in business long enough to understand that your best or worst advertising is word of mouth, I will have no problem sharing this experience with as many people as I can. Only time will tell, if I tell people of how Kroger stepped up and handled their business, or that they don’t care what happens in their stores as they will still generate sufficient profit, and that is all that matters to them.

In closing I need to tell you about my visit to your store Friday July 26th. I was there to have a prescription filled for Mom. While I was in the store I thought I would surprise my daughter with one of the balloons. She was waited in the car with her grandmother. I walked over to the floral department and asked the same floral manager if I could have a courtesy balloon. She informed me that it was store policy not to give them out; at least there wasn’t a helium shortage.

Other than having to find a new pharmacy for Mom on her side of town, I have learned that floral managers must have a bonus plan that hinges on helium costs. I know I would hate to have learned discrimination is tolerated based on the amount of media coverage it gets. No coverage, equals no discrimination? They say we should learn something new everyday and I will say it can be amazing what you learn.

Maybe you should have another conversation with one of your employees, and I think you may be having one with a couple of your superiors, but I don’t know.

I live in Dallas, Tx, one of your stores that I frequent has a new display of the Monster Engery Drink. I was shocked that your corporate offices do not investigate the background of these demonic companies. The Monster Drink has a symbol three rods, which in Hebrew is the number 6, so the outside of the display is the number 666 glowing on the front of the refrigerator. The can also has inscripted, Release the Beast, on the side of the can. Money cannot be that important as to sublime the innocense of humanity. Request to take these displays out and do not sell these drinks!

i went to your store last night,Sat Sep 7,located at voss and san felipe in houston,tx
i had a terrible experience,all we wanted was propane,since that was the first time we needed to buy it we didnt know what we had to do,so my son got out of the car and went inside the store to ask them what were the steps to buy propane,nobody helped him or give him any information,so my husband got out of the car with the propane tank and then a employee named coey came out and yell at my husband hey!! you cant come in the store with that!!!!! my husband told him,that we needed help and nobody came to help us,your supervisor coey was rude and had a horrible attitude he walked away from us without helping us,all he said was you have to pay and leave the tank outside,he call the manager on duty,victor cruz,but of course coey had said another story,then my husband told him to charge him so he could get his propane and get out of there,coey saiud that he was closed and that he needed to pay in another cashier,even tho his light was on in his cashier,when the manager arrived victor cruz,he never offered an apology or help to stop the problem he came with this attitude not willing to help,and saying that he was going to take care of his employee so we walked away from that store that really made us feel unwelcome and i know you are not going to do anything about this matter but people should know what a horrible customer service that store has,

I was wanting to void money order I purchased last week, and was told right away by Dustin the clerk at the customer service desk that he can’t do it since its past 24 hours. Which I was at the store a day after I purchased it and was told a different thing by another clerk that I needed to wait for 48 hours before I can do that. I was waiting for him to tell me what he can do instead of he can’t do. I was pretty sure that he’s lacking of knowledge about money order because I know it happens all the time that people had to void money order because of a mistake mount or not needing it after all or even loose it. He basically told me I was out of luck and that I lost the money from the money order. So I requested to speak to manager who I suspect that he/she will have more knowledge about it. But was I wrong. After several attempts of getting manager to try to come and talk to me, finally some manager named Donny ( I found out he was the store manager) came and told me basically the same thing that he couldn’t void it. And that its not Kroger made that policy it’s western union. I told him ,there’s gotta be a way as this kind of thing happened all the time. Until a lady named Ty who is a booth lead (from her name tag) and Allison (a bookkeeper ) came and told Dustin that he can call and verify that the money order was in fact not cashed. And then Donny told Ty to call and walked away. Donny was not very helpful nor courteous at all. He was rude, and clueless about money order and who know what else. It was clear to me that My request to speak to a manager and had make him come down to the service desk was such an inconvenient. I was glad that Ty and Allison were there and fix the situation. I left the desk I went and get some necessities which I shouldn’t as I thought his store did not deserve anymore my business. As I was getting ready to check out, Donny approached me and TRY to apologize which I didn’t see a slightest of any sincerity. To add insult to the injury, he also tried to give me a $10 gift card for it and I did not take . His words was ” I just want to apologize and here’s $10 gift card for you” I did tell him that he’s not very helpful at all. If he offered a sincere apology tap hat would be enough for me. He was basically trying to compensate his rudeness and clueless with $10. Clearly this store manager and Dustin need additional training on money order. The fact that there’s no CAN DO attitude from the STORE MANAGER and the clerk shows me that this store has lack of training and very poor customer service. You have those ladies to thank you to kind of balance of my disappointment. To make it worse, I called the customer service line to tell my bad experience, I had a lady took my call, and after i told her how my my experience was without getting any of my information, she put me on hold and blind transfer me to a customer service number that was going to be removed. I called back and talked to Charles and told him about everything. I want nothing out of this other than some actions and a follow up. I will not be going to this store and will also spread out my bad experience to my family,friends,and neighbor to not go to this particular store and go to Albertson or Walmart that are close by instead.

I have been a customer of Krogers for many years. But the last 3 or 4 times I have been in the Somerset, Ky store address: 181 S. Hwy 27 Somerset,Ky, half or more of the shelves are bare. You see the store managers standing around talking doing nothing. If the store doesn’t improve I will stop shopping there.

I am starting to see the new floor layout design unfold at store 650. Kroger has decided that increased display space equals higher profits – at the same time they have decided that customer service and customer convenience are not important drivers to profit. This new brain child has no middle isles to allow customers to cut through – we have to walk the full length of an isle so we can see everything they have. I suggest that Kroger capture a baseline on the sales and profit level of the store prior to the construction and compare that to the sales/profit of the store – say about 6 months after they are done (when people just get fed up with it). I am sure the bone head designer will come up with some other reason for the decline (changing demographics for example) – they might even use the political line that if they had not made the change the decline would have been worse. Brilliant bone head move – I am off to Busch’s (an equal distance from my home).

This is concerning the KROGER in CLEBURNE, TEXAS STORE 415. I worked at Kroger for 1 1/2 yrs. as a cashier .I loved my customers and working with the public. I have had to file harrassment on my mgr, leann baker twice. She bullies all of the employess, especially the young ones that this is their first job. they are so scared of her, one girl called in sick and had been to the doctor, had a drs exvcuse, and they told her to come to work anyway. that they didn’t have anyone to replace her. She had STREPP THROAT and came to work, as a cashier!!! I was called up to the office for a “meeting”. since I am Union, I told my Mgr, leann baker, that I wanted Union Representation. She said there wasn ‘t a Union Rep on the clock. *I told her by Union rules I had 24 hrs to have the meeting with A Union Rep. She told me I was suspended for insubordination and to clock out and leave HER store. I said I was waiting for the Union Hall to call me back. She threatened to call the cops and I told her to go ahead. She declined. I finally left the store, was not put on the schedule the next week, and 1 week later was terminated for insubordination,. The Union filed a grievance to get my job back.. Cashiers are rated according to how fast we check customers out. I was at 107%. The customer is the last thing on leann bakers mind. She doesn’t care at all. All she cares about is numbers… Customer Service must not rate for numbers because there is hardly ever anyone behind the desk cause they are on a register because they never schedule enough cashiers. The phone can ring 10-15 times at customer service and it is not answered. I promise al of the above is accurate and correct!

would like to start by saying ewww, your kroger store on madison ave. in covington kentucky is nasty. was in shopping on 8/1/2013 and was getting ready to check out when your cashier was spraying bed bug killer all around the check out it was gross and i put my things to the side and left. made a comment to the cashier and this person just said how do you think i feel having to work in these conditions. this is the most run down store ive been in.you people build new stores everyday but because this one is in a poor area you just let it go to hell. there are flies on all the fresh area foods and the food is overpriced from your other stores. its sad really maybe you should spend some of your money fixing this place.people spend there money in your stores you should give them a nice place to shop.we have told family and friends about this and lets just say we wont be back.also your meat seems to be pre packaged and it doesnt look very good any more thats why remke/biggs is the best store to buy fresh meat. do not know whats going on but you have lost a long time kroger shopper.guess bigger isnt always better.

So I see KROGER treats there employees bad so I understand why as a loyal customer I was treated like nothing. I am a senior citizen, veteran and black. I have been trying to get resolution from a problem that occurred March 30,2013 at the Kroger store in Richardson,TX. I have talked and emailed since then customer service, Facebook ,some at the “executive office” I have her name – who was so rude I was just appalled. i also emailed the head of the Southwest division in Dallas. As my last conversation with customer they told me to contact the store manger. My first contact which was on line March 30, 2013 which according to your policy was to been addressed by the store manager. I have been a loyal customer they have all my contact information – it is their job to contact me. The lady even told me she had contacted the store and someone told her I had not been in. I read in the Dallas morning new Kroger has a little over 14% of the market share and now the case that you are not paying right. This may explain why you have people in management who cannot manage or understand basic customer service. Yes I am passionate about what I considered my favorite neighborhood store until this incident.Many of the old employees are my friends as well. I bought gas and groceries & always received the valued custom coupons.NOW I tell all the seniors & veterans KROGER does not care. Please someone that is a MANAGER please respond. All my contact information is on file. I will continue on to the CEO if necessary.Maybe KROGER should go on undercover boss – to see the real story.

How can Kroger, after 20 yrs. of service separate my employment with the company when I got an inhalation injury at store 294 when they were remodeling back in 2007? When they did not even tell us there was a potential for breathing asbestos during construction. I was working 48 hrs. a week on midnight shift as a conditioner and having to clean the shelves which contained dust particles and other unknown material. They won their case by saying I was not truthful about my illness, and I have doctors statements that say other wise. I had two very bad attorney’s that only worried about how they were going to get paid, one has a show on TV sponsored by Kroger on local TV. On court papers Kroger admitted there was asbestos in the store. Six and a half years on being medical leave and getting better they want to release me. After paying me workers comp. and medicines for 5+ years shows that they were guilty. Now that I am asking for my job- they separate me? This is the thanks I get- per Michael Boyd after 3 months of having to chase him down. I am going to involve the local media and other sources to let everyone know about KROGER and how they treat their employees. Thank you!

I would like to express deep concern for your store located at 3410 Gallatin Pike
Nashville, TN 37216. My last visit to this store, and after this, it will be my last visit to this store or any other Kroger location; today, was upon entering, gritty, dirty, run down, disorganized and over all just not taken well care of. My journey continued into the produce section, which provided little to no, correct, no produce. The quality of produce that Kroger receives from its distributor, Peyton’s Mid-South is below any quality standard; that’s to say if you can find any sub-par produce. Tomatoes were bruised, mushy and a few had started growing mold. The shelves were not stocked, the selection of choices were little and my hand was forced to switch from buying a fresh, or some-what fresh head of lettuce to buying pre packaged salad mix. My amazement became bewilderment when I noticed that these too seemed to be in very “high demand” as there were only a few bags left, some of which has expiration dates that passed a few days earlier. I was further disappointed to see how many bags were only one quarter filled, enough to make two small bowls, a side salad if you will, and for that were being charged $3.28. I came into this store to shop for groceries and get items that I expected to find in any grocery. Instead all I got was a dirty store with empty shelves and produce that was bruised, mushy, moldy and just plain disgusting. Needless to say, I left the store promptly and empty-handed as my experience so bad I never even continued through the store to complete the rest of my shopping list. I always thought Kroger took pride in their stores, as you do a lot of advertising to sway customers away from Publix, Target and Wal-Mart with your sales, low prices and reward points, etc. I was very disappointed in this visit to this particular Kroger and my likelihood of ever returning to shop at this location slim. I will continue to drive the extra miles, which is out of my way, to shop at the Publix location on Lebanon Road in Nashville. This store is an example of what this particular Kroger or any Kroger location should be; clean, friendly and knowledgable staff, fully stocked shelves and fresh produce.

I have a huge complaint as and employee. on the new website scheduling through out the whole learning about it we as employees was not informed that it will also effect our pay on personal days and holidays. I feel as if we are being ripped off and the site and program is untrustworthy. we are left in the dark of what going on in that region and I believe we should e paid our full amount and formally informed about the system. also even though we have signed and received a contract that state that we are guaranteed a certain amount of hours it is allowing the people whom is making the schedule to give us way below our quota and is unfair and against contract. I’m against all of it 100%.

yep. sounds right. My experience started as: hey ill work overtime whenever you ask, work different departments on a dime, fill in for people who have been nasty to me; to (after having a wife and child) saying no to these requests and getting threatened if i dont. same for my employees. the only reason why I didnt get written up when my employees would is because I was the manager. B.S. Its kind of funny though because if people enjoyed working for kroger, they probably wouldnt have so many problems with no shows, walkouts, and ability to give days off. I know its not all just “not enough hours or people working” Its just peoples unwillingness to work for them.

I am a secret shopper that goes around evaluating different stores and its enviroment of how well its being conducted. Previously i went to krogers in clinton,ms and was very dissapointed in some things.. First it was hard to try and find the things i needed and when i ask the store manager he told me to try walmart up the street. I walked the store for more than an hour,and after doing so i notice he talk to his employees like trash. He was very unprofessional on how he conduct things. My family and friends shops at the at store least 3 times of week;but now they will be taking there business to walmart as instructed. I will continue my investigation to see if this is a prejudice act. My advice; get rid of that store manager before he cost you alot of customers. Please give this your immediate attention or i will go to the next level on this situtation myself. Be advise that i will be evaluating some of the employees at the store or anyone affiliated.

Dear Reader,

I am writing to you about a Visa pre-paid reloadable money debit card that you offer in your store. I have had a very negative experience with Netspend Visa and would simply ask you to review my record of accessing money from this product that you offer.
I purchased the Visa and gave $200 to the store cashier to scan onto their card locking this money into their banking system. Their product requires a verification process that mandates faxing personal and confidential documents to Netspend before any spending accessibility of money transferred to Visa.
MONEY IS NOT INSTANTLY AVAILABLE
No other money card that I have used has ever required faxing of documents for verification to use money I have already paid and is now in the prepaid debit cards banking system. As a customer I ask one simple favor, please consider the massive complications I had to endure gifting money to a High School senior to purchase a Prom Dress over the internet for this years Prom before accepting other customers money for Netspend Visa when there are several other very good products like Money Pak.
Thank you for reading my letter and thank you in advance for your consideration.

Very truly yours

I have complaint regarding a pharmacist at your Baker’s store located at 5555 N 90th Street, Omaha NE. I have recently moved and before I did I checked about getting my perscriptions mailed to me and was assured that this could be done. The manager at the pharmacy (whom is very good) is on maternity leave and there is a replacement pharmacist named Linda working there. I called in to order a perscripion on Thurs., Feb.21 to have this mailed to me. They had stated that the post office could take a 5-7 days for deliverly ( untrue as the local post mistress has told me that something mailed in Omaha one day arrives in Norfolk, NE that night and comes to the post office in Leigh, NE the next morning to be sorted to people’s post office boxes). Long story short and being lied to not only by the pharmacist but also by Deb the store manager this perscrtiption never got mailed. On Monday the 25th I called the store and was told there was a storm and this would have delayed the mail. We also had the same storm in our area and mail was not delayed because of it. Reports on TV showed that streets were cleaned in Omaha by early Friday morning. They said it would probably be here on Tuesday. I had enough pills to take through the end of Tues. but would need them by Wednesday. When Tuesday arrived and no perscription receivedd I had to call them 4 times as they kept putting me on hold and no one would come back. Finally someone did tell me that because of the storm (not a good reason as they have a box right out side of the store) it should arrive Wed. morning. It did not and therefore I did not have my medicine. I called the paharmacist and she gave my all kinds of excuses finally stating that she put it in a drop box in her neighborhood on Friday and she had no way of tracing it. I could not drive over a 100 miles and should not have been expected to. She told me to go to my pharmacy in town and have them call. I live in a town of 400 hundred and there is no pharmacy here! She lied not only to me but possibly to the store manager or the store manager covedred for her. I asked them why a pharmacist was carry a perscription across town to mail in a drop box when they have them right outside of their door. I insisted that they overnight my perscription ( I now have missed a days perscribed medication). If she mailed this on Friday and I don’t care where from in Omaha it certainly would have been picked up no later than Sat. and would have been here on
Monday. I am now going to search for a different pharmacy who will take care of my needs. I feel bad as the pharmacy manager Amy has been very good as well as another pharmacist Rachel who works there. You need to fire this Linda as well as the store manager for the lies that have been told and the total attitude that it wasn’t the stores fault.

Your new “lower pricing” is a JOKE. I’ve been shopping at Kroger long enough to know when prices are raised or lowered. In this case they were raised SO they could be lowered. I found one item that said – price $1.35 – new price $1.35. Another item said $1.50 – now two for $3.00. You must think your customers are stupid. As far as I could see, the only prices lowered were on things no one wants to buy anyway.

I love Kroger, and so glad that a new store opened near my home last year, I live in Ft Worth TX. One of the reasons I LOVE Kroger besides there great store and helpful employees…. is that KROGER has been recognized by Forbes as the most generous company in America, Kroger is a leader in supporting members of the armed forces and their families.
I would like to ask KROGER if they will be a 2013 Sponsor for ‘Support Our Soldier’ (SOS) FREEDOM BALL (Saturday June 1, 2013 in Ft Worth TX)…. please provide me with the contact information for the person in charge of this decision so that I may contact them directly. We do not yet have a Grocery Store sponsor and I think this will be a great opportunity for Kroger as well as our military men and women. Thank You!

I have been trying to do business with the Kroger store at 12460 Crabapple Rd. in Alpharetta, Ga for about 11 years. I find the experience very disturbing. The store is constantly out of items and when I go to customer service counter, I have to go find someone to help me. Then, I have to request someone else come and help. Today, after numerous trips to this Kroger, I am never able to get Kroger’s brand of Sugar Free dairy creamer. Obviously, there is a big demand for such a product but those employees can not adjust their ordering (for whatever reason) to accommondate the customers. Could someone there please help this store in ordering such item? I sure would appreciate it because I prefer Kroger over Publix but it’s getting to the point that too many trips are required to shop for simple items at this Kroger store.
Thanks for your time and effort,

Please send a copy of this to David B. Dillion:

I just called your Consumer Services Department and feel that my time was wasted in making the phone call, disinterest did not ask for my name, address or phone number, so let’s try this. Since your store manager Mr. Roberts was promoted to you Super Store his replacements have beem dismal failures. Ms. Dotsey refused to to order special pies and finally after her using profane language told me to get the UPC Code and she would finally look and see. what she could do. Suprise I called ConAgra told them my plight they sent me a case for free since Kroger could not help me. I have seen store managers talk so ugly to employees they cry on the isles not knowing what to do. When asked Assist. Store Manager Legg what happened to Sugar Packets I was told we do not carry them anymore I do not make decisions and I do not know when the decisions to terminate selling products. This begins my new association with Albertsons they carry them. Sugar Free Hill and Valley Sugar Free Sweet Potato Pies, refused to order, again Hello Ablbertsons. I have always promised to buy a case and their instore the next day. After Shave and Cologne no longer carried per Assist. Manager Reed, Hello Albertsons they do. In General your Store Management Staffs are going down the toliet. Now I have been told this store is not in a division that can not order special products, Hello Albertsons. I have other friends that are begining to so Hello Albertson. Where are the Mr. Robert’s when you need them, not at this store. Please respond my insurance company is attempting to force me to another pharmacy chain and at this store besides the meat market are the only two area we trust. If you do not care please do not respond that will seal the Hello Albertsons thought.

My girlfriend is employed by the Baytown, TEXAS 77521 Kroger store. She at the Garth Rd @ W.Baker Rd Location in the Deli. I am upset with this Krogers Managment at this store location. Over the next few days I will be raising the OSHA concerns with Safety Prodecures and Company Policy for (One Person to be told to lift a fifty pound box by their self) by a member of store managment. I am a Industrial Safety Professional who works in the local Petro-Chemical industry. My company works in ISO VPP OSHA Awarded and Reconized sites United States wide.
I am interactive and proactive with OSHA procedures on safe ergonomic lifting practices for employees. I have just been told of unsafe store policys and unsafe work behavior enforced by lowwer end store managment. I beleive two or more employees two every 50 pounds during lifting boxes of any type should be the Kroger employee policy to save back injuries from occuring on the job. RSVP I am being very retroactive at this point and this requires immediate Kroger ATTENTION.
