Kroger Stores in Kentucky to Stop Doubling Coupons
I knew it was coming….
I wanted to bury my head in the sand. I didn’t want to believe it was true. But it is. Kroger stores in Kentucky will stop doubling coupons on September 22.
I’m so sad.
Here is what Kroger is saying:
“In an effort to modernize the company’s coupon policies, Kroger has been investing additional resources into its digital coupons and promotions,” Tim McGurk, spokesman for Kroger’s Louisville Division, which includes Central Kentucky, said in a news release. “This change will please the rapidly growing segment of our customers who prefer to shop and save without the trouble of clipping paper coupons.”
When Kroger has sales – they usually have pretty good sales. When you are buying regular-priced items, it’s usually not a good deal.
Our local Kroger is pretty much the only place we have to shop. If we want something comparable, we have to travel 15-20 miles. I know that’s not a huge drive, but it’s so convenient to shop local.
If Kroger doesn’t follow through with what they’ve promised (and I’ve heard mixed reviews from others throughout the country) then I may have to put more planning into my trips and shop at Walmart, Target or Meijer.
Time will tell.
What do you think? Will this change how you shop?
Note – Four Kroger stores in Bowling Green and Hopkinsville, operated by Kroger’s Nashville division, will continue to offer double coupons, according to the release.
