    Does the $5 off 5 item promotion run through the 20th? The Kroger near me was already out of some of those items that I wanted, hoping they will restock before the deal is over.

    I have noticed at the Kroger in Garner they have a milk case in the front. I bought marked down milk in there several times. Usually has at least a week left on the expiration date. I got two half gallons yesterday for .99 each, $1.98 is aweseome for a gallon it didn't expire until 4/22. It is hit or miss if they have some but worth a look if you are there.

    That's a good reminder to always check dates on the products, wfmjr81. Thanks!

    FYI-I was at the Kroger near Southpoint yesterday and noticed the big display of Hellman's mayo had expiry dates in June- the Hellman's in it's usual location had expiry dates in Dec
