Newest Dayton-area Kroger Marketplace opens today

The new store in the Alex Bell Plaza off Ohio 741 in Moraine opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 1 a.m. daily, according to the Cincinnati-based company.

The new site replaces a 57,000-square-foot location in the same shopping center, effectively doubling that store’s size. A grand opening will be held later after the original building is demolished, officials said.

The company will have about 122,000 square feet, including both floor and “back-of-house” space, as part of an estimated $4 million investment, according to the company.

Kroger Marketplace stores offer the company’s variety of food products but also expand into clothing, kitchen and small appliances, home office, toys and decor. Many of the Marketplaces also add food courts, wine bars, salad bars and Kroger pickup options.

After demolition, the new store will eventually have about 530 parking spaces and a fueling center, officials have said.
