A hiring manager will always look at what you have to offer in terms of skills and competencies before he hires you. The basic document that will ensure that this information is communicated to him or her is the cover letter. The cover letter decides if you are worth anything to the Kroger.
Cover letters for Kroger job must be crafted with care. There is only so much that you put in a resume, so depending solely on it to win brownie points is perhaps not the best idea. A resume has a job to do, and it is the job of a cover letter to make sure that the resume does its job well. Complementing the resume and providing additional benefits in terms of skills information is the main job of a cover letter. You cannot write a cover letter based on your experience solely.
Here is a cover letter sample to help you decide what to write in your own:

Dear Mr. Allen:
Excited at the prospect of working at Kroger, I offer my resume and this letter for your consideration. There are many reasons why I believe that I will be an excellent person to work as a cashier at your organization, the main one being the fact that I possess extensive experience of working in a similar capacity.
Hoping to bring my professionalism and experience to Kroger in the role of a cashier, I offer demonstrated expertise in operating both standard and complex POS systems to handle cash and card transactions. In the 6 years that I have worked as a cashier, I have never been faced with a discrepancy in my cash drawer, earning me the title of Meticulous Max. Anticipating to provide the same level of professionalism to Kroger, I would like to bring your attention to a certain accomplishment – as a well-organized and resourceful individual, I have been responsible for replacing the old cashiering system at Dodge Works (my present place of employment), with one that is more efficient to handle. This transition is something that I am extremely proud of as it reduced the time it took for customers’ purchases to be recorded by a staggering 65%!
I would like to meet with you in person once you have been through my resume in detail. I will call you in a few days to arrange a meeting. Until then, please feel free to contact me on the number given below.
