    Pick ’n Save's latest move under Restock Kroger initiative is lowering prices

    The Kroger Co. lowered prices in its Wisconsin stores Wednesday.  The company announced in a news release that it implemented the price decrease at its Pick ’n Save, Metro Market and Copps stores across Wisconsin “in every aisle for the benefit of their customers.” Roundy’s spokesman Jim Hyland declined to specify the extent of the price cuts or the number of products affected but said “thousands” of items are now available at a reduced cost.   The initiative is part of the Restock Kroger plan, the release says, which aims to “redefine” customers’ shopping experiences.   The decreases apply to products like eggs, milk, head lettuce, bananas and white and wheat bread. Through the move, “Roundy’s continues its investment in its 106-store network throughout Wisconsin,” according to the release.   He told the Milwaukee Business Journal that Wisconsin customers are “cross shoppers,” who review circulars, clip coupons and shop prices.  “It’s going to resonate all across the state,” he said.   Roundy’s, a subsidiary of The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), has made other updates at its Wisconsin properties in recent years.
