Dayton property where Kroger sits sold for $6.1 M

Kroger says no plans to close store at this time

The property where a Kroger store sits at 1024 S. Smithville Road has a new owner after a $6.1 million sale, county records examined by the Dayton Daily News show.

Local property records show that Y&O Pinewood 1, a foreign limited liability company, with three other entities, purchased the nearly 50,000-square-foot Pinewood Plaza property for that amount from Gar Pinewood Limited Partnership.

“We have no plans to close the store at this time,” Kroger spokeswoman Erin Rolfes said in response to a question Thursday. She added that Kroger is a tenant on the property, not an owner.

Nearly six acres of land were included in the transaction.

The last time the property changed hands was for $5.15 million in May 2011.

The store was built in 1979, according to records.
