Kroger expects to extend its online grocery service to metro Atlanta. The basic need chain has presented “ClickList” shopping in selected communities, including Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Nashville. Presently, the administration is not offered in Georgia.
Kroger needs to manufacture a large and new Marketplace store at Sugarloaf Parkway and Martins Chapel Road in Gwinnett County. It would be one of the first areas to offer the online alternative. Clients would place an online request and organize a pick up time. A Kroger worker then delivers grocery supplies out to the auto. On another note, Kroger announced that it would instate employee medical benefit plan for transgender workers. The plan will be beneficial to 400,000 Kroger workers in U.S. Expected to start on the New Year day 2016, these workers will be eligible for up to $100,000 for gender-reassignment surgery, drug therapy, and other procedures.
Doing this, Kroger is expected to become the biggest US retailer to offer a similar coverage for its workers. Today more than 400 major U.S. companies, including Ford, Apple, and Coke cover transgender procedures, such as gender-reassignment surgery and drug therapy, under its employee medical benefit plan. The Kroger Co. is the largest supermarket chain in country with over 2,500 stores.
