"Kroger's digitally engaged customers spend between 2x and 4x with the retailer than their nondigital counterparts (the range is accounted for by the degree of loyalty). Through a seamless experience, we create massive incrementality."
-Yael Cosset, Chief Information and Digital Office, at 2019 Kroger Analyst Day
