How big are Kroger’s online grocery sales now? Bigger than Levi Strauss or Harley-Davidson – Business – The Columbus Dispatch
In the last 12 months, Kroger has done more business selling groceries online than Levi Strauss did selling blue jeans or Harley-Davidson did selling motorcycles.
Kroger told Wall Street analysts in its latest quarter digital sales were more than 7% of total sales – roughly $2 billion – in the 90 days ending June 30. Company officials have stopped short of spelling out their total digital sales volume as it has taken off in 2020, growing at 127% in the last quarter.
