Kroger Revises Lexington Expansion Plans


Following weeks of meetings with neighborhood residents, Kroger has revised plans for the expansion of its Euclid store in Lexington. The grocery chain presented scaled back designs Monday (August 12) ahead of an Urban County Council hearing on a requested zone change.

Kroger spokesman Tim McGurk says the new plans call for another entrance and shrink the size of the project by ten thousand square feet, thus allowing for two more feet between a proposed wall along Marquis Avenue that led to the nickname “Fort Kroger.”

“Some of the changes which were announced yesterday were in response to some of the various pieces of feedback we received from a whole variety of different neighborhood associations and people who live and work in that area.”  Tim McGurk

One of those nearby residents calls the new design "a bone being thrown" to opponents of the plan at the last minute. The council is set to consider re-zoning the area on Monday (August 12).
