Kroger is one of the largest retailers in the U.S. As of the end of fiscal 2016, the company operated 2,796 supermarkets, 784 convenience stores, and 319 jewelry stores in 35 states. In addition to its namesake banner, Kroger operates several other chains, including Ralphs, Fred Meyer, King Soopers, Fry's, Harris Teeter, and Food 4 Less. Building out its established footprint, Kroger acquired Roundy's at the end of fiscal 2015, which afforded it a more meaningful foray into the Chicago market.
