My husband and I live in East Memphis and find it important to distinguish between the Krogers in conversation. Before the switch, we called the Schnucks on Perkins Lil' Schnucks. When it changed, we began calling it Baby Kroger. We call the Kroger on Mendenhall Fancy-Pants Kroger, while the one on Truse Pkwy is either Home Depot Kroger or Schnucks Kroger (since it still looks exactly like Schnucks).
I love Baby Kroger. It doesn't have a ton of choices, but it is easy to get in and out of pretty quickly. I don't do my major grocery shopping there, but it's great if you just need to run in and and grab a few things.
I like to start my shopping at Aldi (either Perkins, Summer, or Bartlett - Bartlett Aldi having the best stuff) and then get the rest at Fancy-Pants Kroger.
