Point noted -- would it be more accurate to say "largest grocery
company that doesn't operate huge big-box retail superstores?" As far
as I know, Kroger stores are still grocery stores, not Wal-mart style
stores. Our local Ralphs has some miscellaneous supplies -- pharmacy
items, everyday needs like diapers, etc., but if I want to buy my boy
a new bike, or get a 32" television, or I need a new battery for my
car, I'm not going to Ralphs.

Wal*Mart superstores aren't just groceries. Internet & New Media Services,

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: For groceries, I find that Marvin's
suits me very well, and its right downtown which makes it very conven-
ient to walk to and from. That is, if it was not so cold outside
today. (In the mid-teens all day today and yesterday.) PAT]
