Murray's already had a relationship with Ralph's (and I presume Kroger), with kiosks in some stores--at least the Ralph's in downtown Los Angeles, iirc.

Interesting development. I was on the ground when the first Murray's kiosk was installed in a Cincinnati Kroger in 2008. Helped train staff, etc. I was a little surprised to see how successful this partnership has been, but specialty cheese is really having it's day.
