Findlay pretty much has the fruit/veggies/meat/baked goods.I think the OTR Kroger (if its like any other generic Kroger) would be OK for eggs, dairy, and canned/frozen veggies and stuff like Cheerios, Hellmans Mayo and stuff like that....so I think you could pretty much do a weeks shopping using both places.I recall we used to pretty much do our weeks shopping at Findlay, with very little xtra to get.
>half the size of Walnut Hills or Covington.Google Earth is our friend. The Camp Washington Kroger was 90x125. OTR Kroger is 120x130Walnut Hills is 175x175Bellevue, KY is 265x190, so way bigger.
I guess that 8,400 square feet between OTR and Wayne Avenue makes a huge difference.

The Washington Park farmers market will be held every Monday - the one day of the week Findlay Market is closed.
^^^Convenient timing for them to have this conversation, eh?Over-the-Rhine Residents Complaint About Kroger Store ConditionsThe recovery and turn around in Over-the-Rhine is nothing short of phenomenal. New homes and businesses keep springing up almost daily. One of the most common comments from people who live there is how important it is to have a customer friendly grocery store in their neighborhood. The only large scale grocery is the Krogers in the 1400 block of Vine Street. While it was remodeled a few years ago...residents tell us there are still some problems there. Local 12 News Reporter Rich Jaffe joins us now from the gateway area with a look at what's right and wronghttp://www.local12.com/news/local/story/Over-the-Rhine-Residents-Complaint-About-Kroger/cUD5rB8dwUSXdan50woZCQ.cspx
^I think the point was that while Kroger makes a profit on the beverages they sell, they are also hurting themselves by contributing to the deterioration of the neighborhood.
Ya- city blights, that's not a good argument. Since when is it ok to sell alcoh to someone who is drunk, and it blows my mind that everyone seems to have ditched the idea that businesses, just like people should be good neighbors. Why should I mow my grass & sweep my sidewalk but Kroger doesn't have to clean its parking lot or sidewalk?When did we all accept the bad conservative argument that all companies shouldn't give a f*** about anything but profit. Stores used to be civic partners, now we shouldn't ask them to help improve a neighborhood by removing single serve alcohol that is targeted towards people struggling with alcoholism?
