    I am doing some research for a report I have to do for a college course. We were told to research The Kroger grocery store chain and where Mr. Kroger lived. It was really interesting reading up on the store and on him. Before today I hadn’t heard of this store nor man. I always tell everybody and myself that were always learning something new daily in our lives.
