Murray’s Nationwide Our Partnership with Kroger
At Murray's, our mission is to bring the best cheese selection to America, and we’re doing just that through a partnership with The Kroger Company. Murray’s has been a New York food destination since 1940, and we’ve been shipping cheese by mail around the country for years. But until we partnered with Kroger, we had no way to bring the Murray’s experience to your community. We are excited to share cheese with you in mini-Murray’s shops found in select Kroger, King Soopers, QFC, City Market and Fred Meyer stores.
What is the Murray’s experience? It’s about sharing the cheeses (more than 150 varieties!) and many other artisan-made goods that we find across the world. It’s about teaching you cheese through tasting and introducing you to your cheesemaker. We’ll never stop learning and sharing cheese with you every day of the year – for your everyday cooking and snacking to your festive celebrations.

"Steven has been an amazing asset to our Murray's cheese shop. He has a passion for cheese that came long before his time at Murray's. He gets to know all of the customers on a human level and remembers what they tell him. Not only is Steven incredible at customer service and very knowledgeable, he is a team player unlike anyone I’ve ever met. We are very lucky to have him here at Bella Bottega!"Steven, if you were a cheese, what cheese would you be and why?
