Management Discussion
  • Total sales were $28.0 billion in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $27.8 billion in the third quarter of 2018. This increase was due to an increase in total sales to retail customers without fuel, partially offset by a reduction in supermarket fuel sales and decreased sales due to the disposal of Turkey Hill Dairy and You Technology in the first quarter of 2019. Total sales excluding fuel and dispositions increased 2.7% in the third quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2018. The increase in total sales to retail customers without fuel for the third quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2018, was primarily due to our identical sales increase, excluding fuel, of 2.5%. Identical sales, excluding fuel, for the third quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2018, increased primarily due to growth of loyal households, a higher customer basket value, 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 11.3% in the third quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2018, primarily due to a decrease in fuel gallons sold of 5.0% and a decrease in the average retail fuel price of 6.8%. The decrease in the average retail fuel price was caused by a decrease in the product cost of fuel.
