This is regarding the Kroger located at
This store is one of the less inviting Krogers I have shopped in. It's an older store, so perhaps that is why. There are no real perks like a cafe, bank,etc..
A few months ago, I was shopping for a yogurt drink. They had Dannon Frusion? smoothies and I was going to buy one of each flavor (they had 2 flavors in stock). I picked out the first smoothie, then reached for one of the other flavor. Having checked the expiration date just to make sure, I saw that it was like 3 weeks old. There happened to be a stock person standing close by, so I let him know. He took it to the back, while I proceeded to find a different one (hopefully not expired). Sure enough, all of the 7 or 8 smoothies of that flavor were at least 3 weeks past their expiration date. Not only was I disgusted, but rather shocked. *And not that I'm looking for a freebie, but Kroger's counterpart in California (known as Ralphs) will give a customer a free product in replace for the one that has expired, for basically doing their work for them. Of course that was not mentioned here.
Oh.. and then a few weeks ago, I was checked out by a new (and young) cashier. I look very young, and I had a case of beer for my husband in my cart. She didnt' even card me. Normally I hate to be carded, but that surprised me.
