SCOTT DEPOT, W.Va. — Kroger will celebrate the Grand Opening of its new Scott Depot store at 101 Great Teays Blvd. on Wednesday, June 9. The store will open at 8 am.
The company invested more than $18 million to build the 94,000 square-foot store that offers a wider selection of products, and features many of the brand’s popular convenience offerings including Pickup.
Coinciding with the opening of the new location, Kroger will close the nearby store located at 125 Great Teays Blvd. at 5pm on Tuesday, June 8. All 186 associates from the current location will transfer to the new store, while an additional 108 new jobs have been created.
“We are very excited about our Grand Opening,” said Kerri Parkins, store leader for the Scott Depot Kroger. “Our customers have anxiously awaited the arrival of this new store, and we think they will be pleased with what we now have to offer.”
Customers can expect a variety of new features including Murray’s Specialty Cheese Shop, Starbucks, a wider variety of easy to make meal solutions and meals to go, and an expanded selection throughout the store.
