What great news. Kroger plans a $75 million expansion program in the Fort Wayne area that will add three new stores, expand two existing ones and remodel three more, creating 250 new jobs over the next three years. Guess we have to give thanks to some savvy economic development planners in local and county government and, who knows, maybe the state even had a hand in it.
"The combination of Kroger and Scott's has been very carefully managed and I am pleased to tell you that one year later we have exceeded every measure of success in our business plan," Moeder said in a prepared statement.
Does that mean government didn't create these jobs? Kroger is just doing this because it made more money than it thought it would and now wants to make even more? What evil, capitalist scum! Quick, somebody stop them before they make a bigger profit and ruin everything.
