Dunno when it happened. One of our mega stores here is Fred Meyer
[they are like Wal-Mart Superstores, only not quite as creepy]. One
day when I got curious I looked them up. They, too, are a Kroger sub-- and whatever Kroger page I found them on, listed Fry's as a sub also.

I didn't know that Fry's was a subsidiary of Kroger. When did that

My bank has been going through a lot of machinations recently--
changing user IDs, passwords, and the like. Yesterday, it was my
turn  and I changed all those things. So this morning, I logged on
to see if  it all worked, which it did, only to discover that my
checking account  was about $1,300 less than it should have been.
When I checked the  register I discovered a pending debit of $1,300
payable to Fry's  Electronics, a subsidiary of Kroger. I called the
bank; the bank said  since the charge wasn't yet posted to call
Fry's. I finally connected  at Fry's with a customer service guy
named Joe, who looked up the  charge. Seems someone was trying to
buy a Sony computer on my dime. So  he said he would cancel the
order and stop the payment collection.  Then my sister chewed me
out for using a debit card for on-line  purchases. Oh well.
