""Murder Kroger""... ""Gentrifi-Kroger""... ""Kosher Kroger""... they all were preceded by this Atlanta landmark, the 'DISCO Kroger""! This 24-hour grocery store in the very upscale Buckhead neighborhood was once the adjacent neighbor of one of the hottest disco's in the nation. The Limelight, or ""Slimelight"" as some affectionately refered to it, shut its doors after a wild run in the early 80's but left behind a legacy. The Disco Kroger, who until recently had a disco ball hanging from its rafters, now only has a framed picture buy the door of the famous club to boast of its rambunctious past.
But as grocery stores go, this particular Kroger is only a slight notch below a Whole Foods. A great salad and hot bar, with a cafeteria to eat in, easliy gets my vote over""Whole Paycheck"" just for it's reasonable pricing. And the best part is, giving it's ritzy address and Jamison Shaw (an elite hair salon) shopping center neighbor, celebs, blue bloods, Atlanta Falcon cheerleaders... are all bound to be bouncing around and grocery getting at all hours of the night.
Oh, if that dairy section could talk. ""Clean up, aisle 69!""
Pros: Landmark of Atlanta, inexpensive compared to Whole Foods
Cons: Parking and Traffic
