grocery store have been doing online orders for years , and in citys have delivery services. I would think It has more to do with people shopping at whole foods and buying a cell phone or odd and ends . No different than you can buy a tractor starter from walmart.com

Sort of amusing. We are going back in time. We had grocery delivery 70 years ago (mom and pop grocery stores).

Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

Kroger stock dropped 1/3 on the news. I lost over 110,000 in value of my stock so I'm not very happy with the news.

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

If I had a 110k to lose you bet I'd have a whole lot better story to tell on CT than that. Youd see me on the news in cuffs :lol:

Kenny you'll be fine, as I'm sure you followed that diversity rule of thumb of never holding more than 10% of your
retirement savings in any one company... leaving you with 3.19 mil to still play with

Buy Dollar General to make up for it. People are predicting it is next on Amazon's hit list.

Actually had not figured this into the retirement until recently. It has over doubled in valve in the last 5 years so I guess I will hold it a while longer
