I still say it's Kroger's employees even though the name is Kroger, not Kroger's as far as I know.

Dang, you're right!

We have our End-Of-Year meeting later this morning so you'll have to do without me... as usual.

One showing scheduled so far today.

yes, but that's not the point. We could easily say it was Johnny's and be in the same spot. I guess at that point you need to specifiy what Johnny's is. Is it a restaurant? Johnny's Restaurant employees?

I think it was just a poor choice in words and to leave it as Kroger's employees and no one would know the difference.

if the testimony was "Kroger's employees" It's correct - since the name/word Kroger doesn't end in an s!!

Yes, you are correct, but I think poof said that it wasn't actually Kroger's it was something else. So maybe that something else actually does have the "'s" in the name so she's still stuck in the same boat, right?

I still don't know the rule, so...

The best I could find on the "rule" was do what "looked" best and easiest to read.

If the name was Sears, it would be correct as Sears' employees.

In the case of Sears' it's pronounced like Sears's, not like Sears, right?

The name actually had the apostrophe in it, like Macy's.

Morning everyone.

Or we're all wrong

From wiki

What is the possessive case for words ending in s?
In: Grammar [Edit categories] [Edit]

[Edit]
While many still maintain that it is only a question of style, and while language is certainly fluid, there are actually general rules in this case:

Form the singular possessive of nouns ending in s with 's: Mr. Jones's dog, Maris's foibles, James's dissertation. The only exceptions are ancient proper nouns: Jesus' disciples.

However, you form the plural possessive of nouns by adding an apostrophe after the "s": the dogs' bones, the balloons' strings, the lollipops' centers.

In the case of the plural possessive of nouns ending in s -- as in, say, the family Jones and their collective beach house -- you add an es and an apostrophe at the end: the Joneses' beach house, the Moraleses' car.

(My information comes from Strunk & White. You can find exceptions to all of these rules, but they are the generally accepted rules.)

Then according to those rules, it should be Macy's' employees.

Fine. I was just saying that's not what I learned. I learned if it ends in an s and it's possessive, then you put the apostrophe but you only but the second s after the apostrophe if you say another s sound.

So for example: put the 's on James's hat
don't put the s after the apostrophe on the boys' bathroom.

You don't put the second s on unless you say another s sound, just like you don't say another s sound if there's not an 's there.

If I'm wrong about that, I'm wrong, but that's what I learned in college and it makes a lot of sense to me.

Yes, that's correct. That accounts for the s's, but not the apostrophes.

It's possibly because I never really cared that much about it so I didn't pay attention to it and so I never liked it.


So far I have managed to handle myself well enough with the education that I have retained.

I disagree, because Macy's Inc. is derived from the original Macy's Federated Department Stores, Inc.)meanig it's already possessive Exchange department atores with employees and it remains possessive - it's the employees that are plural.
