Following up on Swamplot’s story from yesterday, the Houston Press‘s Richard Connelly sizes up the bigger-and-better Kroger that’ll be going into the Merchants Park Shopping Center at the corner of North Shepherd and 11th St. in the Heights.
. . . says Kroger’s Gary Huddleston, the new place will be 96,000 square feet, more than double what the store is now.
That would make it the biggest Kroger in Houston, and almost as big as the 110,000-square-foot monsters the chain has opened in Pearland and Missouri City. . . .
The refurbished store should be finished in a year, he says. The current operation will remain open during the renovation, which will slow things down a bit.
