In 1883, Barney Kroger invested his life savings of $372 to open a grocery store at 66 Pearl Street in downtown Cincinnati. The son of a merchant, he ran his business with a simple motto: “Be particular. Never sell anything you would not want yourself.It was a credo that would serve The Kroger Co. well over the next 120+ years as the supermarket business evolved into a variety of formats aimed at satisfying the ever-changing needs of shoppers. With 2,500+ stores in 31 states under two dozen banners and annual sales of more than $60 billion, Kroger today ranks as one of the nation’s largest retailers.Many aspects of the company’s business today trace their roots to Mr. Kroger’s early efforts to serve his customers.

In the early 1900s, most grocers bought their bread from independent bakeries. But Mr. Kroger, always pursuing quality as the key ingredient for profit, recognized that if he baked his own bread, he could reduce the price for his customers and still make money.
