Accidental leak?

A couple of days ago I was watching the old people news when a story about a new automated delivery vehicle popped up.  

To Mr S. I said - why are they putting bags from Fry's Electronics in this AV? When we backed the segment up, they had the below image up. 

Now unless you know the history of The Valley - this means nothing to you. But Fry's Electronics actually started out as a supermarket. I used to work with one of the heirs at a tech company. Honestly - THE tech company. None of you would be on the internet without them.

But, that would honestly be a brilliant move to go back to their roots. They have the building space! And honestly, it would be so Silicon Valley. Just when you think they are dead......

    No, this is just a cute little thing that the video producers did that's like a kick to the balls of Fry's Electronics.

    It's not surprising though since Kroger is all over the US (except Florida), and they own Foodie Fry's as well as Ralph's.

    They'd be all over Florida as well if Winn-Dixie, Publix, and Save-On Foods didn't have Florida already wrapped up.

    I can already imagine Kroger's drone fleet flying over the skies of The Villages, a huge "active 55+ retirement community" in central Florida, providing a way of delivering goods that doesn't compete with all of the local drunks on golf carts.

    My idea of an active 55+ retirement is to still be doing stuff that matters, BTW. :-)
