New Kroger Store Approved in Memphis

According to Bizjournal, the Memphis Shelby Country Board of Adjustment gave the go-ahead for construction of a new store to begin at the location of Union Ave. in midtown for Kroger.  The old store will be demolished for parking to accompany the new store location. 

The design is being led by The Pickering Firm, which has done many of the designs for Kroger in the past.  The new location is said to be about 74,000 square feet in size.  The demolition of the old store should begin within the next month.
