What People Are Saying:

"…the national food and grocery market is still pretty fragmented, with Walmart as the largest player, with about 17 percent of the market. It doesn't create a sort of behemoth that is crowding everyone out of the market.

From a broader national perspective, a combined Kroger and Albertsons does not pose any major threat to the competitive dynamics of the market.."

Neil Saunders

GlobalData, Managing Director

“Never has the company’s purpose of feeding the human spirit and uplifting communities been more alive than at that King Soopers in Boulder… This is the stuff that great companies are made of, and it’s one of four key reasons that Kroger is poised to sustain its momentum.”
