Kroger plans to open three new Kroger Marketplace stores in DFW, with one in Plano replacing an existing store, according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“Kroger, which hasn’t opened a new store in the Dallas-Fort Worth market since 2019, said it will open three of its new, larger Kroger Marketplace stores next year.
The new Plano store will replace an existing one at 9700 Coit Road, but Fort Worth and Melissa are additions to more than 100 stores that Kroger operates in North Texas.
The Plano store is being built on the southwest corner of Sam Rayburn Tollway (State Highway 121) and Coit Road. Employees will transfer from the Kroger store built in 2004 across Coit Road, but the new store is larger and will need to hire more people, said Kroger spokesman John Votava.”
Kroger’s new Marketplace stores will offer expanded general merchandise and full-service grocery and pharmacy to areas in need, according to a Community Impact article. They say,
““We are excited to bring these stores to areas with booming growth and a need for access to fresh food and essential items,” Kroger’s Dallas Division President Keith Shoemaker said in the release.
Kroger’s Marketplace format provides multi-department stores, offering expanded general merchandise—including outdoor living, electronics, home goods, apparel and toys—along with full service grocery and pharmacy.”
Kroger has over 100 stores in North and East Texas, with five existing stores in Plano and nine in Fort Worth.
