The first Kroger Express concept in a Florence, KY, Walgreens is operational.
Kroger Express—a curated assortment of 2,300 products, selected using customer data and insights provided by Kroger subsidiary 84.51°—will be offered at 13 Walgreens test stores in Northern Kentucky, near Kroger's Cincinnati headquarters. The remaining 12 pilot stores will be operational early next year.
The Kroger Express selection will include Home Chef meal kits, national products and Kroger's private label Our Brands products. As announced in October, the participating pilot stores are offering a one-stop shopping experience where customers can access products from both brands and order groceries on kroger.com for pickup at Walgreens. Kroger Express marks an expansion of the original offering.
