What is Kroger?
What is Kroger?
Kroger.com is the online home of Kroger, a national chain of grocery stores. Kroger is a one-stop shop for household goods including food, wine, beauty and healthcare products and prescriptions. The Kroger Company operates Kroger and other retailers including Dillons, Smiths, King Soopers, Frys, Harris Teeter and Fred Meyer.
What Kroger Sells
Kroger stores offer a wide variety of household goods including food, wine, health and beauty products, fresh meat, deli and dairy areas, and healthcare products including prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Stores are filled with nationally-known brands including Dove, Pantene, Hellmann's, Ragu, Country Crock, Axe and Starbucks Coffee. Kroger also carries its own store brands including the "Private Selection" brand, a label of sorbet, potato chips and other edible goods. Kroger faced allegations in February of 2014 that its "Simple Truth" brand of chicken was not truly cage-free.
Kroger advertises deals in a weekly circular quoting special prices for those who use their Kroger Plus card. The Plus card is a loyalty card that can be obtained by providing basic information such as name, address and telephone number. Customers who do not use a Plus card at checkout pay a higher price on merchandise than those who do use a Plus card.
For those who use a Plus card, a perk of the program is accumulating fuel rewards points. These points accumulate and can be used at a Kroger gas station or another merchant's gas station in partnership with Kroger. Discounts on gasoline can be ten cents per gallon or more, depending on the amount spent at Kroger in a month.
Another wonderful way to save at Kroger is by using coupons. Kroger accepts manufacturer's coupons printed and mailed by the Kroger company. To be placed on the mailing list for Kroger coupons, simply sign up for a Kroger Plus Card and use it when you shop at Kroger.
Kroger Saves Money
Kroger stores accept manufacturer's coupons from the Sunday newspaper inserts such as RedPlum and SmartSource. Kroger also sends periodic coupons to loyal customers who use the Plus Card. The store advertises weekly sales and also offers digital coupons at Kroger.com.
Kroger Return Policy
Kroger offers a no-hassles return policy: simply bring the product and its packaging to the store with the receipt to receive a store credit, exchange, credit or adjustment.
Kroger Gift Cards
Need a gift in a hurry? Kroger stores offer a wide variety of gift cards for other merchants including Bass Pro Shops, XBox, Google, Applebee's, Captain D's, Forever 21 and more.
