Kroger will flat duke it out with anybody.

Yes, that gas station should compliment the huge surface parking lot well.

I take it you don't use Kroger fuel points, cq?

I doubt anyone has a problem with Kroger fuel points. Nevertheless, the area is already going to be congested with increase traffic volumes yet not a single transit oriented solution that doesn't evolve buses has been announced for the Cumbersome area.

I won't buy any meat from Kroger. It's definitely a bit iffy in quality.

This is exactly my point. Cobb County claimed to be trying to make the area more pedestrian friendly, urban, walkable, etc. but placing a gas station in the area is a step in the wrong direction.

I still think it would be a better idea to take it across the street if they must build one in Cumberland. There's enough traffic on a good day around Cumberland Mall. Break it up a little bit and spread out some. The bus things (CCT/MARTA) will likely already be ground zero for any public transit involving the new Braves Stadium.

If the Galleria feels too upscale to accept a Kroger, then the Akers Mill shopping center one block down would be even better. It's practically designed for such a purpose. It still seems awfully close to the one on Paces Mill and 41.

Is there even anything in the Galleria at this point? Last time I went in there, 3-4 years ago, it was some weird nearly abandoned mini mall.

There are a few things but nothing practical which makes it seem like it needs it. It's seems to mostly used for convention-type events. The only reason I'd go there now is for the Sunday brunch at the Waverly so again something more practical might be in order.
