In spite of the way that there are more than 3,000 Kroger stores in many states (counting my own), I had amazingly never ventured foot inside one. Fortunately, I had the option to fix that when I went to visit my companion Linda in South Carolina, where Kroger rules. Being the awesome companion that she is, Linda—without objection—pursued me around the general store for an evening as I took pictures and made notes, at the same time murmuring to myself about the huge swath of store-brand milks and wide determination of cooking apparatuses. She even took many reference photographs individually camera after mine came up short on juice and sent them to me later.
Most Krogers are huge contrasted with other markets, however this specific area was colossal. We’re talking 87,588 square feet gigantic. For correlation: a football field is 57,600 square feet—and doesn’t have any walkways. So it’s anything but difficult to perceive how it took us over two hours (at a genuinely energetic clasp, I may include) to clear our path through the whole store.
