A word of praise: The larger Kroger in Hot Springs was both amazing and depressing.
Old age has its pleasures.
It’s awesome to see the shores of the Pacific. But it’s epic to find new delicious foods to shove into one’s gullet.
The Kroger in question was a sight to behold, in part due to the wide selection of food, both healthy and otherwise. There were at least 30 items that I would gladly substitute as my entire diet if I could.
It was depressing, though, because I knew I’d leave and come back to NWA, where none of the competition has such a spectacular cross-section of items, price, and quality. It’s true that I can visit 3 different stores and probably approximate what I’d buy in one visit to Kroger.
I know that a “super” Kroger isn’t common. But if you’ll permit me to dream for a moment, I’ll ask for world peace, total nonviolence among nations, and that Kroger builds a replica of the Hot Springs store near my house. I wrote Kroger to let them know how much I look forward to them building a store near me.
P.S. You can remove all the Walmart Neighborhood markets and relocate them to Nebraska.
