Kroger breaks ground on new store

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The groundbreaking of the new Kroger Marketplace in Jonesboro took place on Wednesday.

The new store will be 125,000 square feet and will feature toys, appliances, clothing and more grocery options. It will be located where the former Indian Mall used to be. This is expected to be the fourth marketplace store in the state.

President of the Kroger Delta Division, Tim Brown said this new store will also bring more jobs to Jonesboro.

"We'll double the size of our employees," said Brown. "We actually have about 150 currently and we will double that to just over 300 when we open the store."

Brown said it will take about a year to get the store open pending weather conditions.
