BREAKING NEWS: 'Little' Kroger to stay open at Peachtree Crossings East ... Goodwill decides to seek other location

(CLICK HERE) to view staff writer John Munford's opinion of how the city could have beaten Kroger at its own game.

Kroger spokesman tells The Citizen store will remain open

Following is a text of a news release issued by The Kroger Company and Goodwill. It was received Friday at 2:30 p.m.


Atlanta, Georgia, September 14, 2007 –The Kroger Co. and Goodwill announced today that Goodwill has decided not to lease the Kroger store at 100 N. Peachtree Parkway in Peachtree City, Georgia.

"After dialogue with Kroger and with the community, we have decided to cancel our plans to operate a Goodwill store at this location in Peachtree City,” said Raymond Bishop, President and CEO of Goodwill of North Georgia. “We are proud members of many communities in Georgia, and we rely heavily on the support of our neighbors and customers. However, in this instance, we believe that a lack of support from the community could be detrimental to our success in the location,” said Mr. Bishop.

Bruce Lucia, President of the Atlanta Division of The Kroger Co., has informed Mayor Harold Logsdon this afternoon of the change in plans. “We appreciate our customers’ input on this location and are pleased to be a part of the Peachtree City community. We will continue to operate the store for the present time,” said Mr. Lucia.

“We thank Kroger for their support of our mission and community efforts, and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the future,” said Mr. Bishop.

About Goodwill
The mission of Goodwill of North Georgia is to put people to work. We have been providing services in the region for more than 80 years. In 2007, we provided job training and employment services to 16,509 people and helped 3,590 people start new businesses or connect with jobs. Our organization currently operates 22 stores and 25 attended donation centers. Revenues generated from Goodwill’s retail program help fund our job training and placement programs. Last year, we served more than one million donors.

Following is the text of a news release issued by Peachtree City officials at 1:30 p.m. Friday:

Kroger, Goodwill listen to Peachtree City Residents,
Cancel lease for Peachtree Crossing

Executives from Kroger and Goodwill have decided to cancel the lease agreement that would have replaced the Kroger store at Peachtree Crossing with a Goodwill Store in October. Goodwill Industries of North Georgia President Raymond Bishop and Kroger President Bruce Lucia confirmed the decision in a lunch-hour telephone call to Peachtree City Mayor Harold Logsdon today.

Logsdon was scheduled to meet with the corporate officials of both companies at 3:30 PM to discuss the tremendous resident opposition to the proposal.

Logsdon said, “I would like to personally thank Kroger and Goodwill for listening to our residents and doing the right thing for Peachtree City.” Logsdon also commended the hundreds of Peachtree City residents who called and emailed the two corporations over the past 24 hours to express their concern about the lease.

Logsdon continued, “This was never an issue of Peachtree City opposing Goodwill Industries in general, but of the incompatibility of the Peachtree Crossing Shopping Center having a Goodwill Store occupy the only anchor space in the center.”

Logsdon said Lucia indicated that the Kroger store would remain open at the center.

Logsdon: company wants to buy shopping center for a Whole Foods store

Kroger won't drop lease

Citizen group starts boycott of Kroger stores

Kroger’s decision to close its store at the Peachtree Crossings East shopping center in Peachtree City and replace it with a Goodwill drew the most attention at a planning forum in Peachtree City Thursday night.

Meanwhile a citizen's group has formed among neighbors in the Greensway subdivision immediately behind the Kroger. They plan to boycott all Kroger stores until a grocery store is allowed to come back to the Peachtree Crossings East shopping center.

Mayor Harold Logsdon is scheduled to meet with representatives from Goodwill and Kroger today at 3:30 p.m. and he is likely to try and get Goodwill to relocate to another business district such as Huddleston Road or Dividend Drive.

At Thursday's meeting, Logsdon mentioned that a company wants to buy the entire shopping center and put a Whole Foods there. But Kroger is preventing that from happening, Logsdon said, by playing “hardball.”

“It wants to keep out competition,” Logsdon said. “Kroger is doing this to protect the interests of its other stores.”

Logsdon spoke for a half-hour about Kroger’s decision and fielded questions from those in attendance.

“I’m hoping the power of persuasion works with Kroger,” Logsdon said. “I’m optimistic we’ll prevail.”

Logsdon said he has received a flood of e-mail complaints from local citizens about Kroger’s decision.

"Everything that happens in Peachtree City is my fault; I accept that,” Logsdon said.

Logsdon said he and the city council, all of whom oppose Kroger's decision, personally have nothing against Goodwill.

“We’re not against Goodwill,” Logsdon said. “It’s just a bad location. Goodwill does some good things. We don’t want to paint ourselves as being anti-Goodwill.”

He encouraged citizens to send their complaints via e-mail to Kroger and Goodwill.

“Send e-mails to Kroger and Goodwill,” Logsdon said. “Don’t be bashful.”

One citizen asked Logsdon if there is an alternative site the city could offer Goodwill, to which he replied, “I think Huddleston Road or Dividend. I won’t know until tomorrow what their requirements are. We hope they give us time to find them a suitable location."

A number of existing businesses in the center have indicated to city officials that they would be closing if the Goodwill opens in Kroger’s place, as foot traffic in the center will be greatly diminished.

“We’re going to kill a shopping center that is right now vibrant,” one citizen said.

Logsdon agreed, saying, “That’s right.”

Many citizens are considering boycotting Kroger.

“Obviously, the community is upset about [Kroger’s plan],” local resident Juan Matute said. “There is enough people around here who would resort to a boycott.”

Said Logsdon: “A lot of people have talked about boycotting Kroger. It’s a good strategy ... I have to look out for the needs of the citizens and I have to look out for the needs of the business community.”

As I have said to you many times, do not listen to the crap that idiots spew endlessly on these blogs. Action and results are what really count and you produced both of those this month.

You spoke of leadership in your campaign and you did it! Detractors - this is what leadership is all about - producing results without endless self-promotion.

Congratulations Harold!!!

Come on the facts are that Logsdon knew the Goodwill was coming and did nothing except welcome them with open arms. When the story came out in the other PTC newspaper and the citizens jumped on the city, Logsdon played the saint. Don't believe me, check with the building department and see when Goodwill submitted their plans to the city. He did the same thing with the RR on Highway 74 as he missed that boat also as he swam down the Y-Knot river.

Leadership you say, Forrest Gump on a bad day I say. Don't let this BUTTERBEAN fool you, he is as stupid as he acts.

Do the right thing and they will call you stupid. Do something truly spectaular and they call you inattentive. Like the man said - don't read this stuff. Just do your job.

Congrats on Kroger!

Dopey does accidently hit on a good point however. You have a weakness in the Planning Department where there is a tendency not to return phone calls - or even answer the incomong calls and most especially to keep info from the other departments. I have no doubt that the Goodwill plans came in weeks ago, but you might ask why the city manager and pr person and police chief did not know. Regular staff meetings with sharing of information is the way government (funded with tax dollars) should work. Save the secrecy for the pervert hotline that Murray hosts - congrats on getting another one, by the way.

Back to my old picture, so I can say "I don't have a dog in this fight" with real feelings.

Here's the next assignment for investigative reporters at "The Citizen": before they choose another PTC location, we need more information on Goodwill's finances...
"North Georgia Goodwill had income last year of $50 million, which
includes $7.6 million in Government Grants! Their top 6 corporate officers had a combined salary of $1.2 million and their top 5 management types had a combined income of $500K. Their total salaries to run 20 stores and 6 Career Centers totaled $24 million! Work that out and salaries (not other operating expenses) comes to $920,000 in salaries per center! And this is a non-profit?" "Their career placement only finds jobs for 25% of the people who come to them! They only have 75 "job trainees" among their 20 stores. Goodwill of North Georgia ended the year with a surplus of $18 million! Goodwill IS NOT a charitable organization!"

Nonprofit CEO's See Salaries Rise

“Among the biggest five-year gainers was William H. Gray III, president of the United Negro College Fund, whose compensation rose 132 percent, to $404,427 last year from $175,000 in 1997.”

“Thomas M. Lofton, chairman of the Lilly Endowment, in Indianapolis, received $822,000, 83 percent more than in 1997.”

The Chief Executive Officer of the Girl Scouts of America makes $333,238. Not bad for selling cookies.

$618M is a pretty tidy 'non'profit for UPMC
"Excess margin" is the term UPMC used Thursday in describing the amount of money it took in during the 2007 fiscal year. The net income of Western Pennsylvania's primary medical provider totaled a jaw-dropping $618 million.

Seriously, Goodwill never would have made it in Fayette County anyway.
Thomas Crossroads, maybe, Newnan for sure, but not Fayette County.

You can bet your sweet ass a lot of citizens of PTC would go to either of those alternates, they just don't want to be seen in Goodwill in PTC.

Congratulations to PTC on winning the battle, but we may not yet have won the war with Goodwill.

Please note the quote that Mr. Raymond Bishop made. "After dialogue with Kroger and with the community, we have decided to cancel our plans to operate a Goodwill store at this location in Peachtree City,” said Raymond Bishop, President and CEO of Goodwill of North Georgia.

He further goes on to say “We are proud members of many communities in Georgia, and we rely heavily on the support of our neighbors and customers. However, in this instance, we believe that a lack of support from the community could be detrimental to our success in the location,” said Mr. Bishop

So does this mean they are loose to seek out another neighborhood shopping center to locate in to remain in Peachtree City?

Mr. Bishop, please understand the outcry here. While most can appreciate the service you are doing, please take it to another community.

Wonderful news. I'm glad to hear this. I hope all the Kroger employees at the little Kroger stay on, or if they do leave it's for better positions. We all know that this means TJ or Whole Foods will not be in PTC unless they overturn the Kohl's decision and put it there. Kroger heard our overwhelming cry of displeasure and I for one am glad our little community had a voice in unity.

I'm planning on waiting a little while longer to see how things progress before I start shopping back there, or get another card.

Of a Whole Foods, I could be mistaken. I look for both of them to be in the area soon, maybe not PTC proper, but close enough.

You are correct. Trader Joe's have stores smaller than the little Kroger, and I have seen as large as the Kedron Kroger.

Thank you, Kroger, for listening to our community. However, Publix may have won a bit more permanent business from me since Kroger has shown their true colors through this fiasco.

I hope Whole Foods and Trader Joe's have been paying close attention and are still looking at ways to move into our community.

I am absolutely so upset of the news that the Kroger that I frequent every weekend will be closing and putting in a "Goodwill"!!! This will take away from the nice shopping center that is in place and bring the area into a slum. I recently moved to this area and loved this shopping center. I drive slightly further out of my way to shop here, when it would be closer for me to shop at Publix. What are the Kroger people thinking??!! This store is always busy. What would they gain from closing?

In fact, I'd take the Whole Foods over almost any of the chain stores that are making their way into Peachtree City. Can we have a Whole Foods instead of that Kohl's???

Submitted by Dalmation195 on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 9:55am.

Let's all be reasonable. Goodwill is a great organization, but this shopping center will be a ghost town with them as the anchor store. That is how it starts, the center will just go downhill. When the existing stores move out for other, more favorable, locations, then the property will not be collecting the revenue that he (it) needs to properly maintain it. It will eventually begin to have that rundown look and feel.

All of us need to urge Kroger to not follow this course of action. They can either keep that store open to avoid competition, or sell it to the proprietor that will allow Whole foods to come in.

Whole foods is a better alternative, anyway!

Business is business, but Kroger Corporate is smarmy.

It appears they intend to destroy or adversely affect local businesses just to keep out potential competition. To me, this shows a lack of concern for their loyal shoppers and residents of Peachtreee City. (I don't have a problem with Goodwill in PTC, just not there.)

I am sure that I am just one of many people who will no longer shop at Kroger if they continue with their plans to sublease to Goodwill. Ironically, in this situtation, Kroger would probably retain a larger customer base by allowing competition to come in!

As a related item, the closest school to the Little Kroger is JC Booth Middle School. The following fact was recently reported on

"With more than 1,000 schools participating in the Kroger Earning Plus Learning program in Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee, J.C. Booth Middle School in Peachtree City, GA took top honors as the school with the most Kroger Plus Card links for the ‘06/’07 school year."

Kroger awarded Booth a lot of money, but only because a lot of Booth parents spent a lot of money at Kroger.

If parents quit shopping at Kroger it could also impact our local schools.

I emailed Kroger about my concerns with subleasing to Goodwill at that particular location. I received and automated response that I would hear something in 24-48 hours. It has now been over 72 hours and no response. I called Kroger Corporate today (9/14) and left my message with a typical corporate relations stooge who offered no information - other than to tell me there were two other Krogers close by - information which I already know, but may not need in the near future.

I sent my email last week when I heard about it. I got a form response last night. I've got a case ID#. Somehow, I just feel that my concerns will be deleted. I'm choosing to spend my money elsewhere. It's worth the hassle to drive to Publix or midtown to TJs or Whole Foods.

On another note. Whole Foods; a friend of mine born and raised in Fayetteville remembers that Harry's Market used to be in the Books A Million location. What happened? Anyone with longer memories have some insight?

I believe at this stage of PTC's growth and diversity, a TJs would do well in this town. The plus side to Sany coming in, there will be a larger interest in diversity, in food and culture. Kroger's can't offer that.

Kroger plans to sub lease the “little Kroger” to Goodwill. It is a business decision. Kroger has chosen business over community! Perhaps a little scared of more competition- maybe rightfully so? Simply stated, Peachtree City residents opposed to this situation need to choose their community over business! Because of Kroger's lack of respect and consideration for Peachtree City and its citizens I am choosing to let my grocery dollars do the talking!

Mayor - I wanted to ask this question at tonight's meeting:

How fast can the city build a safe cart path or crossing to the Publix on Hwy 54?

Submitted by the_assassin on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 9:58am.

Nothing happens fast when the DOT is involved. See the undone bridge along Hwy. 54 at the RR tracks.

So far, no amount of howling by local officials has gotten that project fast-tracked. The bridge itself was up and ready in APRIL!!!

The BEST you could do would be to call the local DOT district office in Thomaston and see if they could program the intersection to give a longer walk/ride time. But you risk angering the SUV-driving, hogging the road folks who can't stand to wait 10 more whole seconds, so do it at your own peril!!!

Submitted by McDonoughDawg on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 7:56am.

I will miss using my cart to get to Kroger, but I could get to this Publix almost as easily. The City needs to get this done. I didn't realize how much the Publix produce blows away Kroger until I started going to the store on 54 East more often.

How, exactly, will a Goodwill store "greatly diminish foot traffic" in this shopping center? I guess I'm thinking that if the remaining stores in this shopping center have a product people desire, and a customer base now, they would most likely maintain that base. So how will the Goodwill store kill that? Just curious

If you have, you wouldn't ask this question. Go to Newnan, and look at the center Goodwill is in. Take a drive over to Stockbridge, and see for yourself. They do not bring any shopping dollars to the center. They slowly KILL the center. Shame on Kroger.

The Kroger is the anchor store in the center. Anchor stores usually get a huge break on rent because they draw traffic to their store several times a week. The shopping center developer can then charge more to rent the spaces near the anchor because the foot traffic that goes into Kroger (in this case) will stop to buy flowers, ice cream or a book on their way past those stores.

Kroger goes away then the only traffic to Goodwill is the bargain hunters who can't afford the surrounding stores - or don't need their services - ice cream maybe, but certainly not books or flowers. The only other traffic is the Delta wives dropping off their discards, but they usually do this after hours when all the other stores are closed.

By the way, the theory that there is a place in PTC for a Goodwill store is flawed. The church store near Gilroy's meets all current needs without the riff raff. Goodwill is in Newnan and I believe Fayetteville - close enough for me and far enough away as well.

turn you down as a potentaial employee or did you seek a profession in aviation and get turned down because of your poor eyesight? Your blogs can't be taken seriously when you constantly attack a certain group that has no relation to the topic at hand. What is your gripe with Delta employees. My kids have had Delta pilots and spouses as coaches, cub and boy scout leaders, classroom helpers, pto officers, etc... Get some counseling to get the chip off your shoulder and then maybe people will start paying attention to what you are really trying to say.

I don't understand why you people think it's okay to shop at a thrift store by Gilroy's but, it's not okay to shop at Goodwill. What's the problem with Goodwill? More variety? I don't see the diffrence in shopping at Goodwill than a yard sale.God knows there are enough yard sales everyweekend in Peachtree City. As far as foot traffic goes,I don't see much. There isn't much variety for shopping over there. We have two BIG Kroger's in PTC, How many does one city need? I think that you people will find anything to BITCH about because you are miserable in your own life. I bet none of you would have a problem if Kroger sold it to Sax or Neiman Marcus!!!!!!

Submitted by ATLtoPTC on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 10:34am.

In fact, in my letter to Goodwill, I specifically stated that I encouraged them to find another non-anchor location in PTC. I love Goodwill; Goodwill does many, many wonderful things. However, Peachtree Crossing and its many locally owned shops deserve a more suitable anchor store that will benefit their businesses.

Time and again I have seen what an impact an anchor store can have on a shopping center and surrounding neighborhoods. If the anchor store doesn't attract business that supports the shopping center, the whole shopping center goes downhill (which over time also affects the property values of nearby neighborhoods). On the other hand, an attractive anchor store can breathe new life into a shopping center. All we're asking for is a more appropriate anchor store that will help Peachtree Crossing to thrive.

Submitted by McDonoughDawg on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 10:30am.

If you did, you would know the concern. There are many nice shops there that will suffer if this happens. I asked above, go to other centers within 30 miles or so that Goodwill is in, and then come back and give us your findings. You won't find upscale restaurants, clothing stores, book stores etc. You will find JUNK. If I wanted JUNK, I would have stayed in Henry County.

Submitted by ptc_vision on Sun, 09/21/2008 - 2:09pm.

McDonoughDawg...That shopping center is JUNK. There is bookstore that sells a few books, but mainly used. A bike shop that isn't doing well. Beef Obreadys...which if you consider that upscale...then I wouldn't take your advice on anything. That shopping center has been downhill for 10 years now. Nothing can stay in there because no one wants to buy the random stuff that these stores offer. The eye center is the only thing that is nice there...and they will not have a problem because they people that go there are where the insurance is.

Think about how many different stores and resteraunts have come and gone in that shopping area. No one can stay there probably because they charge too much for their merchandise and even though you may think that Goodwill would change all of this "nice area" it won't, Goodwill might actually make it better. It is funny that the people who think Goodwill is a dirty, unpolished company has probably never set foot in a retail location, or for that matter even knows what Goodwill really does or how every Goodwill is catered towards the city where it is located. Goodwill could be an upscale second-hand clothing store because of the area that it is in. The employees do a lot of research before they even begin to think about placing a Goodwill in a particular area, including knowing the average income of the residents and how many kids each family has. All of this data is collected to understand and know that a Goodwill could thrive in the area. Obviously, if a Goodwill was thinking about coming in, they KNEW that a Goodwill could thrive in PTC, and ultimately help the city.

you need the services of that eye center. You are responding to posts that are a year old. The Goodwill issue was put to rest long time ago. Do you work for Goodwill?

As to all the shops being JUNK--The bookstore is a small one--I like that. They have had or gotten for me in short order books I could not get at your bigger chain stores. Yes, they have a used book trade, what is wrong with that? I consider it a service to the community. Evidently you are not a voracious reader.The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The Hallmark Card Shop is beautiful and would be a standout in any shopping center. It is always beautifully decorated, they have a wonderful assortment of greeting cards and gifts for all occasions. And, this staff also is always pleasant and helpful. As to Beef O'Brady's--who is calling it upscale? It is what it is--a local bar/restaurant. The people in there are always nice and the service is good. If you were familiar with the restaurant business you would know that restaurants come and go for the most part regardless of location. There are some that are solidly entrenched but many newer ones come and last only a short while. That is the restaurant business today. Yes, we could wish that more stores would stay but that doesn't mean that we want the anchor store to be a Goodwill type of store regardless of what merchandise they sell. I would suggest if you are that taken with Goodwill that you locate the one nearest you (if you are not already a customer there) and patronize them.

You are discussing a year or more old thing about Goodwill coming to this shopping center!
If you know something we don't about another try, let us know!

As to the Peachtre Crossing Center being a JUNK center, I have no idea where you get such a notion!

The Book Store has been there for 23 years! It specializes in the latest paperbacks and top HB NY Times best sellers. It also does take used books and sells them---nothing wrong with that! No bad stuff there!

Tell me what is wrong with Chic-Fil-A? How about McDonalds? The Eye Shop has been there the very longest!
The Flower shop is an old renter also.
Subway has been there maybe 15 years!
Do you want to see Wachovia Bank go?
How about the other local large bank?

The Card Shop is the largest in the World as a franchise, and this one in the center is first class!

Yes, restaurants and bike shops do come and go--in all of the shopping areas!

This center is easy to get to and to park.

You simply don't know what you are talking about, and must be a Starbucks and ColdWater Creek Customer! Class!
