Mom was a Kroger shopper, now she runs half the stores


Previously Kroger’s vice president for drug, general merchandise and pharmacy merchandising, she helped influence the look and feel of the cosmetics sections in Kroger’s Marketplace stores as they were first built in Ohio. More recently, she has overseen the roll out of Marketplaces in Greater Cincinnati as well as the division’s testing of “click and collect” – the grocer’s order online/pick up at the store experiment that has expanded testing in recent months.
