    Kroger CEO: Even in the Age of Amazon, Physical Stores Will Still Be Important

    clever new deal with U.K. digital grocer Ocado may not be its last transaction. "For us, companies of interest would be ones that have our values, companies that would be in new real estate-we would always sit down and look at it, but that doesn't mean something is going to happen," Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen told TheStreet. "We will continue to look aggressively at partnerships when it accelerates the journey we are on and we believe someone else could do it better than us," said McMullen, who started as a store clerk in 1978.

Walmart stood by its earlier guidance and expects its e-commerce business to record 40.0% growth in fiscal 2019.

    [$$] Kroger’s Big, Risky Bet on Grocery Delivery

    Kroger is betting that robots will give it an edge in the food fight with Walmart and Amazon. U.K. online supermarket Ocado announced a deal Thursday to share its technology exclusively with Kroger, which trails only Walmart in the $650 billion U.S. grocery market. Online grocery delivery is expensive and inefficient, and Ocado may be the world’s leader in automating the process, which could give Kroger a boost against its rivals.

    LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. grocery delivery company Instacart suffered a new setback on Thursday when Kroger Co (KR.N), one of its major U.S. customers, announced a partnership with British automated online grocery service Ocado Group Plc (OCDO.L).

    Kroger inks Ocado grocery delivery deal to battle Amazon threat

    LONDON/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. supermarket chain Kroger Co (KR.N) struck a deal with British online grocer Ocado (OCDO.L) to ratchet up its delivery business with the construction of robotically operated warehouses, upping the ante in the battle with Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) and sending Ocado shares rocketing. The U.S. grocery industry is dominated by Walmart Inc (WMT.N) and Kroger but has been in upheaval since last summer, when Amazon's $13.7 billion (£10.1 billion deal for Whole Foods sent supermarkets scrambling to match the online retailer on home delivery. The Kroger deal announced on Thursday is Ocado's first in the United States and the British company's fourth major agreement with retailers in six months.
