We know you’ve had trouble finding where the dog food has moved to at QFC in Edmonds (it's aisle 11).

That’s been just one small change in Kroger’s $2.2 million remodel, which includes updated décor, improved store entrances, polished floor, repainted exterior and new energy initiatives, such as LED lights.

To celebrate, QFC employees handed out gift bags to the first 200 customers at the store at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27. Gift bags included a coupon for a “free breakfast” (a dozen eggs, package of bacon and carton of orange juice) as well as a QFC gift card. The gift cards were for $5, except for one worth $300.

It’s like a golden ticket, yes.

Dayleann Pepper, who lives in Edmonds in the Soundview apartments, was first in line to receive the goodies.

“I told my 91-year-old friend, ‘I’ll be there for you,’ ” she said. She had a list and coupons – she was going to grab some grapes, pears, berries, lactose-free milk and a coffee from the in-store Starbucks.

“I think it’s very nice,” she said about the remodel. “The only thing I don’t like is their floor, which is cement. That seems to be the norm now; I’ve seen it in other places.”

At a ribbon-cutting ceremony, QFC presented two $1,000 checks, one to the Edmonds Food Bank and one to the Boys & Girls Club of Edmonds.

QFC spokesman Zack Stratton said the Edmonds store has a similar design to some of the newly remodeled QFCs but each is a little different.

“This store was due for a remodel and also had great sales and associates to support it,” he said.
