DEBARYLIFE – Are you going to Kroger? They could ask to see your receipt.

Periodic receipt checks are part of a new safety policy that Kroger’s Cincinnati/Dayton division is implementing at six of its stores in Greater Cincinnati, an email from a company representative to The Enquirer stated. Periodically, when a customer leaves one of these stores, they can be required to present their receipt to a Kroger staff.

Recently, a Reddit user on the Cincinnati subreddit said that after purchasing at the Oakley Kroger, security demanded to see their receipt.

At Kroger, we’re dedicated to making fresh food and necessities accessible. One of our guiding principles is safety, and it informs everything we do,” a Kroger representative stated. “We recently implemented additional safety measures, such as routine receipt checks, at six Cincinnati-area stores in response to an uptick in theft instances.

The spokesman stated that these Greater Cincinnati locations will periodically perform checks:

Kroger in Norwood, located at 4500 Montgomery Road.

Oakley’s Kroger Marketplace is located at 4613 Marburg Avenue.

Earlier this month, the grocery behemoth started demanding receipt checks at six locations in the Columbus area, according to The Dispatch. It was also stated on a sign outside the stores that big bags were not allowed inside.

When The Enquirer visited multiple Kroger locations throughout Greater Cincinnati on Friday, none of the locations had any signage up. A Kroger corporate relations manager named Mark Bruce told The Dispatch that the new policy was implemented in response to an increase in theft and incidents.

In stores like Costco and Sam’s Club, where members authorize the checks, it is standard procedure to examine customers’ receipts. Some big-box stores, including Walmart, occasionally hire employees to look through customers’ receipts as they leave.
