James W. Jackson is an Air Force Veteran who served for 25 years. Every Sunday for the past three years, James comes to the Maryville Kroger to purchase a yellow rose for his late wife.
Last Memorial Day weekend, James was buying his yellow flower when a group of children saw him in uniform and came to thank him for his service. At 83 years old, James knelt down, shook each child’s hand, and said, “Thank you. I served this country […] so you can live free, and maybe one day have the opportunity to serve your country too.”
It is an honor to have you as a customer, James. Thank you for your service!
No matter if they were naughty or nice this year, our four-legged friends bring us oh so much cheer.

“I was told that my breast cancer was Stage 4, the worst possible news. Usually that’s a 1-in-3 chance to survive...well, I beat the odds!” - Elaine L., Dillons Associate
With no family history of breast cancer, Elaine was diagnosed in 1995. But with the love and support of family and friends, she has made a full recovery and has been cancer-free for 20 years!
Stories like this make us so proud of our Kroger family! When a visually impaired customer came to our Indianapolis store, our associate, Colin, offered to help him find everything on his shopping list. And it turns out these two have shopped together before!
Thank you, Colin, for being an integral part of our team.
It’s October and that means the monsters are out! Fear not, Kroger is here to help. Check out how one of our pharmacist in Suwanee, GA shared our secret Monster Repellant with a valued customer.
