Kroger advertisement, 1977

Posted on November 14, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

A full-page advertisement that ran in the Nov. 14, 1977, Lexington Herald and Lexington Leader. The Herald was the morning newspaper and the Leader published in the afternoon. The ad highlights that you could save at least $6.45 with the coupons. Among the items advertised: a five-pound bag of sugar for 59 cents; two dozen grade A eggs for 89 cents and four loaves of bread for $1. At that time, Lexington had six Kroger stores: 704 East Euclid Avenue, 97 Eastland Shopping Center  1865 Alexandria Drive  451 Southland Drive, 3222 Nicholasville Road, and 500 New Circle Road. Only two of those stores remain open today. Lexington now has 11 Kroger stores. Click on the image for a closer look, and click here to see other Kroger images from our archives.
