Kroger and Harris Teeter to Merge

I knew Harris Teeter was up for sale but I had NO idea Kroger was even a potential partner!

Details are sketchy right now but it appears for the time being things will continue to operate the same- Kroger will be based out of Ohio and Harris Teeter out of NC.

What do you think- will this put our coupon doubling in Hampton Roads in jeopardy?

    I stopped shopping at the VB Kroger stores several years ago after consistent problems using legitimate (, smartsource, coupon network…) coupons. The last straw was when after spending close to an hour shopping/couponing the cashier tells me she can only take 1 printed coupon. I replied “oh I know it’s only one coupon per item” to which she replied ” only 1 printed coupon for the whole order” I know that was a load of crap the corp. coupon policy states different. I asked for the manager who was clueless. and told them to keep the grocery order and I have never been back!! If Harris Teeter becomes anything like them I’ll shop elsewhere.

    I just hope my HT continues to carry the high quality products and diversity in products that are the reason I shop there. Kroger produce and seafood just doesn’t have it right now. I usually shop very limited on the interior of a grocery store (all packaged, preserved food), so that may be my bias.
