Customers upset about a coupon controversy now have an answer from Kroger.
According to a local coupon group, the grocery chain pulled one of its advertised coupon deals earlier than expected.
Customers said earlier in the week you could buy four Green Giant vegetables for a little more than $2 and you would get a two dollar coupon from General Mills.
As of Tuesday night, Kroger apparently stopped printing those coupons.
Those who coupon in the Roanoke area said they were upset because they were trying to cash in on the deal to buy supplies to send to the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.
"It's not really about the deal at this point,” said Lauren Bratton. “It's about Kroger not giving us an answer and not understanding why Kroger is able to pull this deal when it's not their deal. It’s General Mills promotion, so why are they able to tell us we can't get it if it's not theirs?"
Kroger released the below statement to WDBJ 7 regarding the coupon ordeal.
Kroger wrote, “Our Kroger stores recently pulled our General Mills - Green Giant Vegetable Catalina coupon promotion this week. General Mills ran a duplicate promotion and they have decided to pull it. In the meantime we don’t have product on our shelves to run this deal. General Mills is working to get more product and to better supply our stores for future promotions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers.”
