Fort Worth is getting a fancy new Kroger Marketplace store off Hwy 287
Fort Worth's getting a new Kroger: The Kroger Co. broke ground on a new, state-of-the-art Kroger Marketplace format store at 113 E. Bonds Ranch Rd., along the northbound side of Highway 287.
According to a release, the store will span 123,000 square feet, built on nearly 17 acres, and is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2024.
It will be the 10th store currently operated by Kroger in the City of Fort Worth and the shopping center will feature various businesses and new dining options for the community.
“As Fort Worth continues to expand, this new store will be a very important and significant investment in our community and will provide opportunity for new jobs and further economic growth,” said Keith Shoemaker, president, Kroger’s Dallas Division. “Our newest store in Fort Worth will feature the very best that Kroger has to offer with thousands of fresh, local, healthy, and unique selections and an extensive assortment of products.”
Kroger’s new Marketplace store in Fort Worth will feature a Starbucks kiosk, Murray’s Cheese counter, full-service grocery, pharmacy and expanded general merchandise, including outdoor living products, toys, home goods, and more. The store will also feature a fuel center with 18 fueling positions and a grab & go kiosk including beverages and snacks.
The site will be developed by Ridgemont Commercial Construction, based in Irving and Weitzman real estate of Dallas.
Fort Worth is the third of three new Kroger Marketplace stores announced earlier this year, which includes new stores currently under construction in Melissa and Plano. These will be the first stores built in North Texas since the company opened its location at 1801 North Lake Forest Drive in McKinney in 2019. Kroger has been serving North Texas communities for more than 65 years.
In 2022, Kroger opened a Fulfillment Center in South Dallas to focus solely on the growing demand for grocery delivery service. With spoke facilities since constructed in Austin, San Antonio and Oklahoma City, the company has added the capability to serve an ever-increasing digital audience and more remote communities without the need for brick-and-mortar stores.
