Kroger was established by Bernard Kroger, in 1893 in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio and today it has over 2,700 stores in 35 states and the District of Columbia, with formats ranging from hypermarkets to supermarkets to superstores to jewelry stores.

In 2018, 782 convenience stores were bought by EG Group for $62 million. Kroger also owns or leases 33 facilities for manufacturing products, and has 2,251 pharmacies and 225 The Little Clinic in- store health clinics.

What are their regulations of customers bringing their emotional support animals to the store?

It is currently not allowed to bring in dogs or any pet from outside of Kroger stores. In the event that a customer brings in a service dog, Kroger can allow it inside the store.

Customers must also make sure that the dog that they bring home is behaved properly and is not a threat to any of the people who are buying clothes in the store.

Kroger does not allow dogs or cats to be housed in its stores; it enforces very strict rules when it is time to serve its customers. Kroger has allowed customers who need assistance to use their services because it has to adhere to certain guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Americans with Disabilities Act, which was approved by the U.S. government.

Why do people with disabilities need an emotional support animal to accompany them when shopping?

An emotional support animal is an animal that helps a person who has a disability by providing comfort or support. It may do this in different ways, such as providing a calming effect on the person or providing companionship or love.

These animals can be cats, dogs, rabbits or birds, but many people choose animals that are known as ‘comfort animals’ because they know that these animals will provide comfort and assistance without making too much of a fuss about it.

When a person with a disability goes to buy goods or to get help from the store staff, they are often told that they cannot have an emotional support animal with them because it is against the law. In fact, there is no law which states that an emotional support animal cannot be with someone who needs one.

It is true that people with a disability are not allowed to bring their emotional support animals in some areas of public transport, for example in airplanes or hospitals, but this does not mean that it is illegal for them to be in public with their animals.

The law only forbids people from bringing their animals into certain places without permission from the owner. This means that if a person who has a disability goes into the shop with his or her emotional support animal and asks for help from the staff and they tell them no, then it is not against the law for them to go away and find somewhere else where they can buy their goods.
