Carytown Kroger plans massive expansion

Press release from The Hodges Partnership

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - In what could easily be called the "Grocer's Triangle," The Kroger Co. is giving residents something to talk about with plans to expand its existing Carytown store.

The nation's largest traditional supermarket retailer today announced the expansion plans for its location at 3507 West Cary Street. Construction began October 18.

The store, which currently shares its building with SunTrust Bank, will gain an additional 22,000 square feet making it approximately 75,000 square feet upon completion.

The remodeled store will feature a different store orientation in addition to several new features including:

  • An expanded wine and beer section.
  • The addition of a pharmacy complete with drive-thru access.
  • The Deli Bistro that includes a full menu and meals prepared to order, café seating free Wi-Fi and flat-screen television.
  • A brand new branch of SunTrust Bank with drive-thru access located on the west side of the building.

"This store is in the center of such a special area of Richmond and we're thrilled to be able to offer Museum District residents the kind of top-of-the line store they deserve," said store manager Rodney Brooks. "The expansion and remodeling of this store represents the future of Kroger and I'm excited to be part of it."

Customers will have to wait until Fall 2011 to fully enjoy the new and improved store but Kroger does not anticipate having to close this location during the remodel.

Currently the Carytown store employs 163 full and part time employees and plans to add new positions by the time store renovations are complete. Interested applicants should visit for more information on available jobs.
