That's Quite a Number

92 percent

That’s the percentage that The Kroger Co., the nation's second-largest grocery chain, grew its e-commerce business in the first quarter, which ended May 23, when compared to the same quarter in 2019. Also, digital sales were up triple digits in the first three weeks of the second quarter.

Brian Cornell, chairman and CEO of Target, on the Minneapolis-based retailer now recognizing Juneteenth (June 19) as an official company holiday. Cornell also said Target plans to honor "the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States" and will give team members "space to honor Juneteenth in their own way."
