Doors open at 8 a.m. Wednesday at Kroger’s newest Marketplace location in Southgate.

Located at 16705 Fort St. in a long-vacant space formerly occupied by a Super Kmart, the store is the fifth Kroger Marketplace in southeast Michigan.  

At 149,000 square feet, it is also the largest of the all of Kroger’s Michigan Marketplace stores. Most non-Marketplace stores average 40,000 to 60,000 square feet, according to Rachel Hurst, corporate affairs manager for the Kroger Company of Michigan.

On opening day, the first 400 shoppers to enter the store receive a reusable shopping bag and a $10 Kroger gift card. Throughout the day there will be product sampling, specials and family entertainment.

Celebrity chef Roger Mooking will be at the store from 8 a.m. to noon for a cooking demo. 

Kroger says this new store represents a $19 million investment in the Southgate community. The new store is the single largest retail development in the city’s 60-year history, according to Mayor Joseph Kuspa.

“We are excited to see the investment,” said Kuspa at today’s ribbon-cutting. “We are pleased they found Southgate was the place to be and made the commitment.”

Kroger Marketplace stores feature a larger selection of traditional groceries as well as home goods, small appliances, toys, apparel, kitchen items and baby items.  On one side of an aisle there is a wall of kitchen gadgetry, cookware and bakeware. Opposite there are appliances, from KitchenAid mixers to coffee pots and panini makers. 

“I believe shoppers will be surprised and delighted with the variety of foods and other products they will find in one location,” said Marc Jean, Southgate Kroger Marketplace store manager, in a press release.  “Many customers are pressed for time and the bright new Kroger Marketplace store offers the convenience of purchasing a range of foods, everyday, gift and seasonal items under one roof.”

Inside the new store, the Café features a sushi bar and a Pan Asian food bar and a deli. There is a large seafood and meat department. At the bakery, customers can use the electric bread slicer to slice a loaf of bread. 

This Kroger also offers ClickList, the online grocery ordering service, starting Sept. 27. 

There’s a pharmacy, large floral department and a Michigan First Credit Union location.  A fuel center is expected to open at the end of October.  

This store will employ more than 300, a mix of full and part-timers, with many transferring from the Kroger store on Eureka road in Southgate which officially closed today.

Other Kroger Marketplace locations include Royal Oak, White Lake Township and two in Shelby Township. In 2013, a Kroger Marketplace opened in in Lambertville, near the Ohio border, but that is considered part of Kroger’s Ohio division, according Hurst corporate.

Regular business at the Southgate stores will be 6 a.m.-midnight daily.
