WEINPLUS WELCOMES KROGER

By October 24, 2018Insights

WeinPlus is pleased to welcome a second, expanded engagement with Kroger Real Estate as the nation’s largest grocer continues its forward-thinking approach to its property portfolio.

With nearly 2,800 stores in 35 states under two dozen banners, Kroger ranks as one of the world’s largest retailers today. WeinPlus will work alongside Kroger’s Real Estate division to support the development and execution of their corporate strategy.

“We’re excited to continue our work with the Kroger team,” says WeinPlus Founder Rachel Elias Wein. “This company is pioneering the way in which grocery retailers serve their customers throughout their journey, both in their bricks & mortar stores and through digital opportunities like ClickList and Ocado.”

Wein notes Kroger’s visionary approach to new technologies as an example of their approach to real estate. “Exclusively licensing Ocado technology is a brilliant move. It demonstrates Kroger is looking at the future of the supply chain and developing partnerships that allow their physical footprint to evolve with the future of retailing. They are taking actionable steps to prepare for that future marketplace while continuing to provide the best customer experience,” Wein continued.
