To focus on Kroger’s primary competition for this new service, we can narrow the playing field to the company’s two key competitors that already offer a home delivery service to their customers: Safeway Inc. and Whole Foods Market, Inc. Safeway Inc. appears to have a better, more affordable service when compared to Whole Foods. Safeway offers home delivery to its customers with a $49 minimum order required to take advantage of the delivery option (Safeway, 2013).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
