Kroger to sell groceries in Walgreens stores

Kroger plans to sell groceries in branded sections of Walgreens Boots Alliance stores, as both companies look for ways to keep customers loyal to their products. The first "Kroger Express" sections will open by early 2019 in 13 Walgreens stores. The companies say they will add more of the 4,000-square-foot displays if customers take to them.

Kroger plans to sell groceries in branded sections of Walgreens Boots Alliance stores, as both companies look for ways to keep customers loyal to their products. The first "Kroger Express" sections will open by early 2019 in 13 Walgreens stores. The companies say they will add more of the 4,000-square-foot displays if customers take to them. They will account for about 33% of an average Walgreens selling space. Kroger and Walgreens executives have not said how the companies will share sales revenue or provided financial details of the deal. Kroger and Walgreens will supply and operate the Kroger-branded sections together, officials say.
