TROY — The community turned out in droves to celebrate the opening of the new 124,000-square-foot Troy Kroger Marketplace on Thursday at 731 W. Market St.
The former store closed its doors on Wednesday.
According to Kroger media specialist Patty Leesemann, the new Kroger Marketplace is in full service, with the exception of the store’s wine and “Growler Bar,” which is awaiting a liquor license.
The store also boasts The Little Clinic, Murray’s Cheese, apparel, Fred Meyer Jewelers, a Greenville Federal branch, Bistro, expanded departments like Pharmacy, Meat and Seafood, Deli and Bakery, Produce, Dairy, Bulk and Natural Foods, Kitchen Place, and Baby World.
Leesemann said Kroger’s online ordering feature will be available later this spring. Leesemann said most of the store’s major celebrations and its official grand opening will be held this spring following the demolition of the old building.
“We are planning our grand opening celebration and events for April after the old store is demolished and there is ample parking to accommodate the events and activities,” she said.
Demolition of the old Kroger will take approximately a month.
While the new Kroger Marketplace isn’t the chain’s biggest ever store on record it’s still one of the store’s largest in the area, she said.
Fred Meyer Jewelers is celebrating the grand opening of its 21st location in Ohio with a 1,300-square-foot store within the Troy Kroger Marketplace today. This opening marks the company’s 83rd store within a Kroger Marketplace and second new store to open in 2016.
On Feb. 4, Greenville Federal will host its ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at 9:30 a.m. inside the new Kroger Marketplace.
