The advertising jingle “Let’s go Krogering!” was played over and over when I was much younger. I still hear the jingle when we start planning a trip to the store and a “happy way to shop”. So, after our weekend company left for their home and the house became very quiet after the 2 year old who is learning how to talk and was practicing on both grandparents was gone. We began talking about supper and it was soon apparent we needed a few items from our 2nd favorite store, Krogers!
Needless to say neither of us had energy enough to go Krogering. And then the light bulb went off in my feeble brain; let’s go Krogering on line and pick it up tomorrow. They make it sound so simple and easy that us old folks should be able to use it. I went online to the Kroger site and followed the directions to sign up for their shopping service. A reminder, the 1st 3 orders are free and after that they are only $4.99 each. Now, I don’t think that is too much if it saves you 1 to 2 hours spent looking around that huge store.
I got us signed up and proceed to place our order. WOW a list comes up with our previous purchases and we begin shopping. I know there are many more things to learn about this shopping list but for now it worked very well. We only had 10 items on the order and when we picked it up the next day they were all there. A young lady and young man brought the order out and while the man loaded the order in the car the young lady gave us several hints to make the process easier. So to say the least we are very happy with our new adventure. I am not going to recommend the on line shopping for $150.00 to $200.00 Kroger list but for small orders it makes a lot of sense. I think it will be lots of fun to go Krogering setting here at the desk.
You are all probably wondering if Krogers is my 2nd favorite store what is number 1. I have often described my most favorite store as my 2nd home. You see we have so many prescriptions to pick up that the folks on the drive though at Walgreen’s greet us on a first name basis. It seems like we are there more than at home.
Thank for listening
