Kroger to spend $15 million on store renovations
Cincinnati -- A Monday report by the Cincinnati Business Courier said that Kroger Co. is planning to spend about $15 million to renovate four stores in the Cincinnati area in 2011.
The grocery retailer said it plans to renovate stores in Westwood, Madeira and Montgomery, Ohio, as well as a store in Cold Spring, Ky.
The Westwood and Montgomery locations are scheduled for renovation in the first half of 2011, while Kroger is still finalizing the renovation plans for the Madeira and Cold Spring stores.
Kroger spokesperson Rachel Betzler said plans are still being finalized for the store renovations, which will be limited to interior upgrades and will not include expansions, she said.
Reece-Campbell will perform the renovation work on the Westwood and Montgomery locations, according to the report.
In addition to the four planned renovations, Kroger is working to start demolition of its Corryville, Ohio, store to make way for a new store. Betzler said Kroger is working on a contract with Covington, Ohio-based Anchor Properties, which owns University Plaza, to start redevelopment.
