red adidas gazelle Kroger expanding at W
United Steaks has closed at 907 Vann Drive.)Buy PhotoKroger may be mum on the subject of what its intentions are at West Towne Commons, but it’s common knowledge the direction the company is headed at 35 W. University Parkway.
The company which owns 10 acres of land to the west of the store will add in the neighborhood of 32,000 square feet to the 58,000 square feet to its existing location.
“We have applied for permits and will expand substantially,” Joe Bell said. “The store has been there for quite a while; it’s doing well and overall, the Jackson market is a great market.”
Bell is the manager of marketing and public affairs for Kroger’s Delta Division.
A few of the areas of expansion are ones most would expect perishables, the deli and bakery, dairy and fresh foods.
Bell said the set up for meat will basically be the same, but one new department will be an organic foods section.
Bell said no decision has been made on whether to build a new store or remodel the company’s third location in the city at 41 Stonebrook Place, in West Towne Commons, which opened in 1992.
United Steaks at 907 Vann Drive has closed and attempts to reach management were unsuccessful.
