Kroger is changing its pricing model along with other grocery stores across the country.
Kroger is lowering its prices on about 3,500 store items in its Ohio division. The supermarket is eliminating the practice of doubling coupons as well. Kroger has already made the change in other parts of the country.
The competition between traditional grocery stores and big-box stores like Wal-Mart and Target is heating up nationwide. Grocery store chains are moving toward an "everyday low price strategy" and relying less on weekly sales and promotions in order to sharpen their competitive edge.
