Kroger Launches Refresh Initiative Today In North Texas

Kroger says that, beginning today, shoppers in North Texas will find new lower prices on thousands of popular food and household items, along with a renewed emphasis on shopping experience, fuel discounts, local products and community relations.

“We’re a strong brand and company but we’ve achieved that status because we’re always looking for improvement opportunities. Kroger currently serves 662,000 households every week in the North Texas market with 86 locations and we continue to expand those numbers,” says Bill Breetz, president of Kroger Southwest. “We know that price is important to every customer and, at times, can be a deciding factor where to shop. With our Refresh initiative, we’re making a multi-million dollar investment to reduce prices across the store and reengaging our employees to offer highly-satisfied customer service.”

Through the new investment, Kroger says it has lowered prices on items customers purchase most frequently ranging from fruits and vegetables to grocery and household staples. National and private label brands are included in the widespread price reduction.

In addition to new lower prices, Kroger says it will continue to help shoppers maximize their savings by accepting valid print coupons, and digital coupons that are downloadable at Kroger.com and through the Kroger mobile app. Kroger also helps customers save by offering discounted pricing for 30- and 90-day generic drug prescriptions, providing a daily 25 percent discount on cosmetics, and giving a 10 percent wine discount when shoppers purchase six bottles or more.

Kroger also allows customers to earn Fuel Reward points for every dollar they spend, excluding alcohol and tobacco products. Shoppers can quickly rack up points through everyday grocery, gift card and pharmacy purchases that are redeemable for savings up to $1 per gallon at Kroger Fuel Centers and 10 cents per gallon at participating Shell locations.

In response to customer feedback, Kroger has installed new technology that allows stores to deliver a faster checkout experience. With the new Refresh initiative, Kroger says it is recommitting to making customers’ time a priority. To enhance the shopping experience, Kroger is striving to have more registers open, especially during peak shopping times, to keep shoppers’ wait time to a minimum.

For years, Kroger say it has supported locally produced and sourced products to help strengthen the economy and community while minimizing the company’s environmental footprint. Kroger has a year-round commitment to supporting Texas farmers, ranchers, food producers, wineries and breweries. In stores, shoppers can now find promotional shelf tags that read “From Texas for Texans” to help them quickly identify local products.

Kroger Community Rewards is a new $1.5 million fundraising program supporting schools, nonprofits and faith-based groups. Organizations and their supporters can enroll in the program using their Kroger Plus Card to earn funds. Every time an enrolled customer shops, they help their charity of choice raise money.

Within the next 24 months, Kroger will build six new stores and expand three locations, along with opening multiple fuel centers and remodeling existing properties in the North Texas area.
