New Kroger Marketplace in Jeffersonville creates 130 new jobs

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB)-- A new Kroger in Jeffersonville has created 130 new jobs.

The Kroger Marketplace opened Wednesday on Jeffersonville Commons Boulevard.

It's 90,000 square feet with Kroger features including "Scan, Bag, Go" and "ClickList."

The location also offers a Little Clinic, new Starbucks, Murray's Cheese Shop and Eli's BBQ.

"Oh its great. We didn't have a Starbucks in our community. We have one inside our walls, we have apparel, which we didn't have a lot of options here in Jeffersonville. Things that we kept, people were driving either across the river to Louisville or over to Clarksville, we can do it right here in our community of Jeffersonville now," said store manager Gerald Tye.

Kroger says the store employs a total of 280 people.
