Sales is the only way to profit. Kroger in the fisrt two quarters seemed to have control them. In the third quarter they seemed to get a little hotter on sales plan. The 4th. quarter is here and it looks like they pulled all stops out and going hard for sales. To bad they failed to do this in the first two quarters. Now I have not even look at percentages in 1st. 2nd or even the 3rd. just looking at local sales plans and the traffic I see in local stores. I usually visit 3 or 4 different Kroger stores a month and they are packed. This is one plan KR has never ever changed 4th quarter crunch time.

You must be a bit slow. I posted the initial response to make a point. It obviously went right over your head. (In case you were wondering, I'm not refering to or making fun of your height.) I wouldn't stoop that low to concern myself with whether I can kick your A** or not. I hate to bust your bubble. I don't really care how big you are.
When you have something even remotely related to Kroger, please post. Otherwise, you waste the time of everyone reading the posts on this board. They don't really care about your black belt, little brother's weight or your marine training.
