Infamous names tend to stick.

Examples.........People still know "Metorpolitan" as Stewart
H.E. Holmes= Hightower
Joseph E. Boone=Simpson

South Dekalb mall tried adding "The Gallery at South Dekalb"

It hardly ever works in the way of forgetting.

But I guess this is a little different in that its not an official name. But it will always be "Murder Kroger."

All the Pre-BeltLine Atlantans will refer to this place as Murder Kroger. The name of this place will be a way to tell how long a person has been a resident of Atlanta.

I normally don't comment in public but so far as I know there are no specific plans to change the name of the Murder Kroger at this time.

Of course that is always subject to change.

We're not supposed to say anything, Ansley.

That's not saying there is a "we" to begin with.
