For the record, the Kroger (which i visited just the other night at 3am) that wasnt 24/7 that I am referring to is the one in Brookhaven at the intersection of Ashford Dunwoody and Johnson Ferry Rd. Glad to know that there are still some Kroger stores open 24/7.

I shop at Ansley Mall and appreciate Kroger over Publix. But I tell ya - Ingle's is the bomb! Too bad they stay away from in-town areas.

Many years ago when I lived there, I did not shop at either one. I used a place called Harris Teeter, which I understand is no longer there. I do like Publix a lot, but find them to be more expensive in almost every area. I was not a Kroger fan during my time in ATL, and when I moved back to California, I shopped at the Kroger store here - called Ralph's. Not impressed and do not use them for much. I do not see the residents of ATL as "winning" in the Grocery store business. Not much competition, and I think the Kroger's of the world tend to take the ATL market for granted. That being said, I sure do miss that A & P Store on Northside Drive by the OK Cafe. It was dark and dirty, but it was my favorite.

When it comes to produce I prefer Publix since it being a Florida based company you get more fresh fruits from Florida. It has a lot more produce suppliers from Florida. Publix orange juice tastes much better than Kroger as the oranges are from Florida not from Brazil or Mexico. Kroger brand orange juice taste nasty and watered down. As for fresh produce Publix hands down.

I love Kroger. It is noticably cheaper with the Kroger plus card and the personalized coupons they send you based on what you buy. Publix does nothing like this. The only good things about Publix are that their bakery is superior to Kroger's and their wine selection is superior.
I only go to Publix when I need a few things or just for wine.

Oh, yeah. Have you been to the Ingles in Hendersonville, NC? It's the Disney World of supermarkets.

Publix. Kroger always looks dirty, and I prefer clean looking grocery stores.

Hate to tell you, but they all look the same behind the walls, coolers, and doors.

Too funny. That and Bi-Lo are places to avoid in Hendersonville. Fortunately, Harris Teeter and Fresh market are both represented. My mother lives there, and I drive up every six weeks or so to take her shopping.
