• Before Fred Meyer was thought about

• Before Fred Meyer was thought about, customers had to shop at multiple places to get items such as meats, cheese, produce, and other products (Kroger, 2018). Mr. Meyer wanted to change that by providing customers with all these items in one location. This is when his, “One-stop shopping,” came to life. Many of the stores carry more than 225,000 items and average 150,000 square feet (Kroger, 2018). Fred Meyer wanted to provide customers with the biggest variety of products. Fred Meyer also strives to listen to associates and their ideas to create new ways to satisfy customers. Culture is a very important part of the organization and that is why they created a cultural council that involves one person from each department to bring about change that will create positive growth to the company (Kroger, 2018).
