Kroger plans to expand and renovate its Ashton Place Shopping Center store, following its purchase of the property, but there are no plans to add a gas station at the site.
Carl York, advertising and public affairs manager for Kroger, said the changes will bring a better shopping experience for customers.
“When the store is complete it will look brand new," York said. "Customers will see new cases, equipment, new décor inside and skylights will be added to let in natural light for a brighter store to shop.”
