A new 80,000-square-foot Kroger store that opened in Norwood, Ohio, features the retailer’s Cincinnati/Dayton division’s first Kroger Personal Finance Money Shop, which offers insurance and lending services -- including mortgages and equity loans, home and car insurance, renters insurance and term life insurance -- alongside check-cashing services, money orders and money transfers, bill paying, and more. Kroger’s Money Shop is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.
Nearly twice the size of the store it replaces, Kroger’s new Surrey Square location offers an extensive selection of items and expanded departments and services. The store has a bigger meat and seafood department with fully trained staff available to assist with special requests and custom cuts, including oven-ready entrees and luncheon and variety meats.
The new Kroger also features a natural food section, deli/bakery, a Seattle’s Best Coffee Shoppe, international foods, a drive-through pharmacy, and a full-service drug store with hundreds of Kroger brand health and beauty care products. There’s also an “All About You” beauty department offering cosmetics and fragrances.
As with each store it builds, Cincinnati-based Kroger has implemented the latest green technology to improve energy efficiency in store operations. Overall, the new Surrey Square Kroger will consume about 15 percent less energy a year than a typical store today, and about 25 percent less energy than a store built in 2000.
The new store is part of the Surrey Square redevelopment effort, which was accomplished through a combined effort with New York-based Centro Properties Group, Kroger and the City of Norwood, Ohio. In addition to the façade improvements, other enhancements include a reconfigured parking lot, new parking lot lighting, landscaping, paving and sidewalks throughout.
