Shopped at Kroger’s in mid to late ‘80’s when I lived further east. They were not as nice as Hy-Vee of the 1980’s but a better grocery than Hy-Vee is now. Not sure if current Kroger’s has soap bombs, sporting goods, shoes, medical clinics, and Marky Mark or just groceries.
There are different “levels” of Kroger. I label them:
Mini Kroger - in deep urban areas
Regular Kroger - suburbs/outer urban areas
Kroger Marketplace - it’s like a Super Target. Clothes, games, expanded cosmetics, etc on one side, then a “regular Kroger on the other plus a fancy cheese station, upgraded bakery.
