Peachtree Corners just opened yesterday. If you are going for a visit, I advise you to go early or late in the evening because Snellville location was still packed 2 weeks ago. It was pretty tame last Friday though.
Thanks for the advice! I'll probably try Dunwoody or Peachtree Corners because it's brand new.

LOL that is so true. But when you see a nice Kroger it by far surpasses every Publix....FL has a lot of ghetto Publix stores...

When we moved to GA the nearest Publix was just being built, so I used Kroger, and never went back to being a Publix regular. Pharmacy service is good at both. Customer service is good at both. I love the $.10 off gas for every $100 spent at Kroger.

I don't care for the meat at either store, for that we go to Costco. Publix has an edge on produce(slightly better) and the bakery (much better, but I don't buy often anyway), but I prefer Kroger's Private Selection cold cuts over the Publix ones.

For pantry staples, Kroger has much better prices. Publix has the bogo stuff, but it always seems to be processed foods that I won't buy.
I'm in total agreement. I moved from NY to Dallas and started shopping at Kroger. They built a new Super store and it was fabulous. Much better prices than Target, Albertsons, Publix and competitive with Walmart. Great organic section. Depending on the store meats and produce are very good. Clean, clean store with very friendly and helpful store associates. I love their coupons they send me in the mail, with lots of free groceries and their $.10 off gas for every $100 spent at Kroger. Gas prices are also competitive with Murphy Gas which is Walmart's gas filling station. Their super store is also open from 6am to 1am.

I'm now moving to Florida permanently from Texas, and am completely disappointed that I will no longer be able to shop at a Krogers. Publix is expensive and does not have any incentives like their coupons or gas. And Publix is a 9am to 9pm operation and I found myself traveling 15 minutes to the nearest Walmart when I was staying in Florida late one night.

I think Krogers should sell off any stores they have in florida under bogus names like Ralphs or SuperX and just open up under their well known brand name Krogers. They will definitely give Publix a run for their money.

Krogers Fan!
