The store began when Bernard Kroger started a grocery store with his life savings in downtown Cincinnati. The store was founded in 1883, and it was only one year later that Kroger opened his second store. The Kroger Company started self-service shopping in the early 1900s, allowing people to select their own items from shelves and then bring them to the clerk, instead of having the clerk get the item for them. Kroger became the first grocery store chain to ensure quality of their products and test foods in the 1930s. Kroger also owns Kroger Marketplace and a variety of food and drug stores and convenience stores, among others. As a grocery store, they have a variety of frozen goods, fresh meat, eggs and other dairy products, soups, crackers, bread, and various bakery items. Many Kroger stores also have pharmacies and gas stations attached to them.
