Kroger concept to open Oct. 5

Kroger Marketplace plans to open its doors Sunday, Oct. 5.

Construction on the store began last December.

The store will be the first of its kind in the Atlanta Division of Kroger Corp., which encompasses Georgia, East Tennessee, South Carolina and Northern Alabama.

“There are Marketplace stores in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio,” Kroger spokesman Glynn Jenkins said.

The store will offer products not typical of any traditional Kroger. The marketplace concept expands the store’s offerings to include jewelry, bed and bath items, decorative goods, office and school supplies, furniture, toys and seasonal items.

Farragut’s Kroger Market-place will carry Fred Myers Jewelers and Ashley Furniture. The 113,000 square-foot Kroger also will offer in-store banking, a drive-through pharmacy, a Starbucks and a fuel center.

The Bistro, a dine-in or take-out restaurant also will be housed in-store.

Kroger’s unit manager, Molly Stiles, is excited about the new store in Farragut.

“This store will change the way Farragut residents view one-stop shopping,” she said in a press release.

“Kroger Marketplace will allow our shoppers to choose from a greater assortment of merchandise and services, while including a much more interactive shopping experience in both our grocery and specialty departments.”

“Obviously, we are striving to meet and exceed specific needs of the communities we serve in. Farragut’s offered us a tremendous opportunity to open a 113,000-square foot store, with all the amenities that I think consumers in that particular area will find exciting and a one-stop shopping experience as well,” Jenkins said.

Kroger Marketplace is the first building in the multi-million dollar Brooklawn development, set to be a total of 91 acres extending from Kingston Pike to Concord Road and Campbell Station Road.

The lead developer of the project, Mark Senn with Blanchard and Calhoun, could not be reached for comment.
