I never got the hype with whole foods either. Their prices are laughable, especially for their meat. I went in there one time and paid like $12 for 2 chicken breasts. Never again.

Although it will be very convenient for me, it just seems like a weird idea.

Agree. I'd rather a Dillard's or Von Maur.

I wonder if Kroger saw Costco's success (that must be one of the busiest locations) at the other end of the mall and thought, "Hey, we could get a piece of that." If so, I'm afraid they'll be sadly mistaken.

The Marietta Daily Journal - Kroger looks to open in Cumberland Mall
Wow. That would mean I can walk to Kroger from work. :-)

Is that a good thing?

Well I guess when it's built you could leave your car for servicing @ Sears automotive and shop for groceries in the meantime. On stop shopping for sure.

Also, with the density of new homes/apts being built there will be plenty of new grocery shoppers.

Default Cobb board of commissioners approve rezoning request.

Kroger wants Sears space at Cumberland Mall - and Braves fans - Atlanta Business Chronicle
For an area that is trying to improve on walkability and become more urban, building a gas station in a parking lot is counter-intuitive.

Kroger has really been aggressive the last few years in the metro. You can tell. They seem to be building stores in all the right locations. I say a really nice Kroger like Citiwalk/ Sugarloaf beats a nice Publix anyday...

If I lived in the area I wouldn't be wild about taking a trip to the store and battling baseball patrons. But I guess that will be the new reality for the area.

My guess is that most residents would just prefer it stay where it is, further away from the cluster.

kroger still has weird pre-packed, vacuum-sealed meat though.

Weirder than the regular styrofoam packed Grocery Store meat. Which arguably is still packed on site at Publix.

And this is why I prefer Whole Foods. As close to a real butcher experience as one can get in a chain store. Bonus point for antibiotic and pink slime-free.

Kroger, like Walmart, does not have "for real though" butchers in their stores anymore . In addition to Publix, both Ingle's and Food Depot employ butchers who package their fresh meats. I find Walmart's and Kroger's meat suspect myself due to their "pre-packaged" practices.
