Just an update to today’s earlier post: Kroger Co. reached an agreement to buy 20 Metro-Detroit area Farmer Jack stores. This includes the location, the closing of which I was earlier lamenting. I was hoping another large chain would buy them out, and give Meijer some competition – but more importantly, give me a choice of where to shop.
Unfortunately, Kroger does not intend to buy any of the locations in Detroit proper. I can’t say I blame them.
