For years, Kroger has supported locally produced and sourced products to help strengthen the economy and community while minimizing the company's environmental footprint. Kroger has a year-round commitment to supporting Texas farmers, ranchers, food producers, wineries and breweries. In stores, shoppers can now find promotional shelf tags that read "From Texas for Texans" to help them quickly identify local products.
To Kroger, local also means supporting communities and neighborhoods. Kroger Community Rewards® is a new $1.5 million fundraising program supporting schools, non-profits and faith-based groups. Organizations and their supporters can enroll in the program using their Kroger Plus Card to earn funds. Every time an enrolled customer shops, they help their charity of choice raise money.
Within the next 24 months, Kroger will build six new stores and expand three locations, along with opening multiple fuel centers and remodeling existing properties in the North Texas area. Kroger currently employs more than 12,000 individuals in the area and continues to create new full- and part-time career opportunities that offer competitive pay, healthcare plans, retirement options, product discounts and other incentives.
