By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - Final plans are being made for the grand opening of the anchor store at a new east Gainesville shopping center on Wednesday.
Kroger Marketplace at 1931 Jesse Jewell Parkway will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon cutting at 10:00. The new store – which will employ around 275 people - will cover more than 113,000 square feet and will be the second Kroger Marketplace in the state.
The store will be the first Kroger in Georgia with an apparel department. The company describes the Marketplace concept as "a one-stop destination for home fashion and decor, bed and bath, kitchen and small appliances, home office and toys - in addition to traditional fresh food and groceries."
