Holiday Manor Kroger reopening Wednesday after $16 million in renovations

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -

After closing for more than six months, the oldest Kroger in the Louisville area is reopening at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

 The store in Holiday Manor closed at the beginning of April to make $16 million worth of renovations.

“In the 52-year life cycle, the store has expanded five times,” Holiday Manor Kroger store manager Tom Revell said.

Nearly 20,000 square feet were added to the building with additions on either side.

“We've added Starbucks, we added a wine and spirits shop, we expanded our Little Clinic, which is our pharmacy, our meat and seafood, and our deli department,” Revell said.

Like other recently renovated Kroger stores, there will be fresh sushi, a Murray's Cheese Shoppe, Boar's Head Meat, a garden center and a Havana Rumba Food Cart, but this is the very first Kroger with a BBQ joint.

“We have Eli's BBQ joining us. It's an outside company. It's the first time they've been in a Kroger store,” Revell said.

It's also the first store in the area to make Italian brick oven pizza.

“We will be offering lunch and dinner, and the idea is you can come in and get anything you would normally want to eat at home right here,” Revell said.

As the in-store shopping experience is enhanced, so is the online shopping experience.

The Holiday Manor Kroger is the next store to add Clicklist, a way you can buy groceries online and have them delivered to your car in the parking lot.

To help with all these additions, Kroger is bringing in 140 new employees, and the store is still hiring.

The first 500 customers Wednesday morning will get two free packages of Simple Truth Chicken.

Store hours are 6 a.m. until midnight, seven days a week. Pharmacy hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
