    Default Does anyone shop at Kroger

    I have the hardest time finding a grocery store that I like. I like Walmart for the fact that they have good prices and I can get everything in one stop, I really like that. What I don't like is the crowds, I always end up with 2 shoppong carts and then have to hurry up and get everthing up there so I can take my cart and start putting my stuff in my cart again. I have tried Food Lion because it is closer to my house. I like that they do all the bagging, I don't even have to unload the cart and it is never crowded. What I don't like is the prices are kind of high. I like Savalot but I don't like there produce. So I was thinking about trying Kroger. Kroger is the only store around here that doubles coupons. Does anyone else shop at Kroger?

    You are lucky Kroger does doubles! We have Fred Meyer (Kroger) and they do not double. They do have decent loss leaders and their store brand foods are very good. Ours has reusable bags that you get .05 credit for. And they bag your groceries. Check their ads and coupons and give it a trial run.

    I find Kroger has the tendency to be hire priced on things like Food Lion. I don't shop there on a regular basis, but I will go there when they have a really good deal on something that we use often.

    Kroger only doubles coupons 50 cents or less. I shop there though and like it.

    Kroger is where I generally shop. I get my basics there as well as the specials with coupons. I hate shopping at Super Walmart because it's so big! Plus, they don't double coupons.

    I shop at Kroger - it's my favorite based on my choices.

    In my opinion, Kroger prices are better than Walmart.

    They will double coupons, (.50 and less) they have great sales, they have many store brand items. they have 'manager mark downs' near exp. day so I can usually hit the bread isle and stock up on loaves for .25 - .50 and toss them in the freezer.

    Our Kroger doubles dollar coupons, but I find a majority of the time they are higher priced anyway. And I do not buy produce at Kroger, it's always expensive and old

    I don't like Walmart either, and limit myself to 1 trip a month if possible for things they don't sell at other places.
    Kroger is the best place for deals I find. I don't like however, their meat or their produce. I like somethings organic, so I find Traders Joe's has the best prices for those sorts of things. Also I hit Aldi's for the other half of things, like canned goods and dry goods (not meat or cheese).

    I shop at Smiths (Kroger) for the majority of my shopping. What I dont get there I usually buy bulk at Costco.

    I buy some loss leaders at Kroger just about every week. I like their brand of items and have found that a lot of them are reasonably priced. However, I also shop Food Lion and Walmart for a few items. Keeping a price book has helped me a lot with knowing where to shop.

    We have 3 choices in our little town: Super Walmart, Aldi and Kroger. They are all in the same block! So utilize all three. Walmart is my usual stop as I can do other shopping while there and prices are not bad. But the produce is tired or bad. I like to get my produce at Aldi. Theirs is always fresh and affordable. I get coupon items and specialty items at Kroger. They carry some items or brands that the other two do not. So we don't have a lot of choice, but it's enough.

    We have Fred Meyer here, same parent company I think. I like them the best out of my 3 choices here (Safeway & Albertsons being the other 2). I just hit the other 2 stores for loss leaders I can use...

    Our FM doesn't double, none of the stores here do.
