  • Total sales were $37.3 billion in the first quarter of 2019, compared to $37.7 billion for the first quarter of 2018.  This decrease was due to the sale of our convenience store business unit and a decrease in supermarket fuel sales, partially offset by our increase in total sales to retail customers without fuel.  Total sales, excluding fuel and the effect of selling our convenience store business unit, increased 2.0% in the first quarter of 2019, compared to the first quarter of 2018.  The increase in total sales to retail customers without fuel for the first quarter of 2019, compared to the first quarter of 2018, was primarily due to our merger with Home Chef and our identical sales increase, excluding fuel, of 1.5%.  Identical sales, excluding fuel, for the first quarter of 2019, compared to the first quarter of 2018, increased primarily due to changes in product mix, including higher quality products at a higher price point, retail inflation and Kroger Specialty Pharmacy sales growth, partially offset by our continued investments in lower prices for our customers. Total supermarket fuel sales decreased 3.6% in the first quarter of 2019, compared to the first quarter of 2018, primarily due to a decrease in fuel gallons sold of 3.3% and a decrease in the average retail fuel price of 0.4%. The decrease in the average retail fuel price was caused by a decrease in the product cost of fuel.
