Yes, you read that right, the Kroger Co. is closing it’s delivery operations in San Antonio on Saturday, May 25. In a statement to its River City customers, Kroger explained “Despite our best efforts... these facilities did not meet the benchmarks we set for success.”

Let’s pour a Dr. Pepper Strawberries and Cream soda — City Editor Nicholas’ favorite drink — out for Kroger and get into the details.

What if I paid for a Boost?

Members located in Austin, San Antonio, and South Florida who paid for an annual or monthly subscription will receive a total refund for their Boost by Kroger membership within 30 days.

Pro tip: If you’re on a 30-day free trial you may still use it until it expires or until the facility’s final delivery on Saturday, May 25 — whichever comes first.

What if I have a gift card or coupon?

You can still use those to shop until it’s final day to receive orders which is Friday, May 24.

Unfortunately San Antonians, this was the only way to shop with Kroger in our area. After Saturday, May 25, there are no other options to shop with Kroger in the River City.
