New store opening in former Fairborn Kroger space

A new Goodwill will open in early 2019 at a Fairborn shopping center.

The new location will take up about 19,000 square feet of the 72,000 previously occupied by Kroger before it expanded and relocated within the Shoppes at Valle Greene on East Dayton Yellow Springs Road.
