Every time I have been in there recently, the store is totally trashed. Lots of empty shelves, out of date products, rude cashiers reading books on the job, no buggies...anyone else notice this? What's going on? I don't know how much longer I can shop there.

I agree, stopped going to the 1st street store because it was too dirty and had no selection, now the 5th avenue location, although bigger, is not much better. Kroger's only cares about the Gucci Kroger in B'Ville, you know, where people have money.

I have a friend that works there. He is goofy and any. I can only imagine if they hired him what the rest of the staff is like.

I was there the other day. First time in ages. It really has deteriorated horribly. I never saw so many shady looking scruffs with meth mouth in one place before. I won't return. Just the thought of them touching the groceries and then you bring it in your house...no. Just no.

The difference between Rt. 60 Walmart and the one at the mall is also like night and day.

If you were a stranger from some other state and you went to a few ordinary places in Huntington you'd leave with the impression that this town has just given up and said "f*** it". Soooo nasty you can't even buy groceries. Skid row everywhere.

From a business point of view it makes sense. Corporations sell product based on demographic. Huntington is a low income town,( 18.5K a year ave per person) ergo cheaper goods. B-ville, by comparison, per capita has a higher income and more retail interest due to the mall, and is close by. The region could not support more retail than it already has. Besides, most people patronize corporate fast food restaurants here, as Huntington has the highest density of them, per capita, of any place under 200,000 people, in the nation. You want better grocery stores, eliminate a couple hundred fast-food places first.

Well, this is the first time that I have been disappointed in Kroger on 5th. I went there this evening....they had a poor selection of meat, no pork. Out of 2% milk and their cheese shelves were empty. I dont know if everyone got their stamps and stormed the place or what, but please get it together.

I was so aggravated when I left the other day, I called back to speak with the manager. The carry out guys were yelling across the front of the store and playing. The checkout girl was RUDE and the manager's responses was "oh really, I didn't notice " This was after three attempts to get my call answered

ewwww no it's not. First, it's the same meat truck that goes lots of places. Second, I know a girl who worked there and told me HORROR stories about cleanliness.

They have changed store managers recently. They should beg the former store manager to not only come back, but RUN back to that store!

I know the last few times i went there to shop krogers the lines were back by the meat no joke plus store was trashed. And your right cashiers are very rude plus no buggies had to go find one outside. I wont' be shopping there go to Ohio kroger much better at least there the cashiers were nice and didn't have to wait in a long line. Sad very sad to see krogers on 5th ave go down like this. Oh also seen some lady steal meat putting it down in a diaper bag lots of it. I did report it to a guy working there this is what i got. Oh well nothing we can do have to see it our selves. I was like oh well just trying to save your store lots of money bet she had over 200 dollars worth of meat she had a hugh diaper bag. Being nice and trying to help gets you no where in this life. Ex shopper for 5th ave kroger!
