Just this week, Kroger announced it will close all its Triangle market stores. The story was on the front page of the Sunday News & Observer, and all over social media to further disrupt the grocery wars in North Carolina. Is this altogether a bad move? In our honest opinion, NO. Once Kroger bought Harris Teeter in 2016, they never really made in-roads into growing the Kroger brand market share. It makes sense to concentrate on the “homegrown” Harris Teeter model, invest the money and resources there, and close down Kroger stores throughout the Triangle.
