The Kroger supermarket at 725 Ponce de Leon Ave has gotten a super-friendly makeover. Given that it’s nickname used to be Murder Kroger, suffice to say that they’re definitely trying to re-brand.
Given that we all know how much I love to gawk at street art, I was only too keen to check it out. Peep the pics and video below:
This 28-by-186-foot mural was designed by three SCAD illustration students Jing Li, Hanrou Li, and Sena Kwon, and painted by the Loss Prevention mural collective.
I don’t even think that “wholesome” is adequate enough of a word to describe this pretty amazing mural.
See the whole mural in this 13-second video:
Never deterred me from parking there, though, even at night. We’ve parked there a trillion times in the dead of night (no pun intended) and headed right over to MJQ. I think with the re-brand, they’re going to cut down on people doing that kind of thing though. Oh well.
But it’ll always be Murder Kroger to me.
Since publishing the above, there has been another incident of violence at this Kroger. Terribly sad for the victim’s family. Read more about it here. RIP.
Murder Kroger has been torn down as of Fall 2016. Making way for new housing options.
