Heard the news this morning. I was hoping the buyer of HT would be Publix or better - at least some store that we did not already have.
Kroger taking over HT is disappointing to me. We have 6 Kroger's and 4 HT's in Durham plus a few more HT's in Chapel Hill. We are going to lose stores and jobs.
I generally find the HT stores to be cleaner and better maintained. The HT VIC card beats the Kroger Plus card by miles and HT has other promotions such as eVIC and Fresh Catch that beat anything at Kroger. I have found lots of good fish at HT using the Fresh Catch specials. I don't even look at the fish at Kroger - am I missing anything?
