Midtowners, prepare to go Kroegring on Union once again.

The long-awaited Kroger store on Union will re-open on next Wednesday (November 2) at 6 a.m. The first 200 shoppers through the registers after the opening will get a free two-liter bottle of Coke, products from Bimbo Bakeries, and coupons from Hostess. Shoppers can also enter to win some Kroger gift cards, too.

The reopening comes after a massive project to update the former Kroger store on Union, which used to be a Schnuck’s, which used to be a Seesel’s. The Kroger store there closed its doors in January.

Demolition crews tore down the old store building as well as a mid-rise apartment building in a lot adjacent to the store. Construction crews built the new store from the ground up.

The new Kroger store will feature a Corky’s BBQ, Murray’s Cheese Shop, a New York Style Sandwich Shop, sushi bar, juice bar a new pharmacy, and an expanded parking lot. The new store is about 60,000 square feet, nearly twice the size of the former 30,000-square-foot store.
