Ukrop's stores to begin conversion to Martin's on April 3

Mar 28, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Progress-Index

Font size: [A] [A] [A] The clock is ticking for the Ukrop's name. The 73-year-old Richmond-based grocery chain's ownership changed last month, and over the next two months, the stores' name and much else will be changing, too, including the stores' longstanding policies of closing on Sunday and not selling alcoholic beverages.

I will sure miss Ucrops. Their customer service and great products will truely be missed. They also did a lot for the community.

My wife and I have been shopping at Ukrops for many years and are wondering about the changes. Krogers has stepped it's customer service up and is attempting to fill any possible void that the change over to Martins might make.

We have already gone to Krogers a couple of times and find them to be very good as far as giving the service to attract the business.
