Kroger continues to invest in upgrading existing locations throughout the City of Irving, with the grand reopening of its store at 7505 N. MacArthur Wednesday, January 28, following a $15 million renovation and expansion.
Over the past four months, the North MacArthur Kroger has undergone a transformation to enhance the shopping experience, and product and service selections. The food-centric shopping experience now includes a greater focus on chef-prepared items and pastries, Texas grown fruits and vegetables, wine and beer, premium-cut meats, fresh seafood, and natural and organic foods. The store is now home to a Murray’s Cheese – a New York City-based shop featuring specialty foods, including premium cheese, cured meat, antipasto, olives, crackers, jams, and dried fruit and nuts.
In addition, the store now includes a Starbucks and a Kitchenplace, which includes appliances and dining ware sets.
Celebrating at the ribbon cutting ceremony included Beth Bowman-President/CEO of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber, Bill Breetz-Divison President with Kroger, Janice Walker-Kroger District Manager, Deneen Pauling-Kroger Store Manager, Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne, Irving City Councilman Brad LaMorgese, and Danielle Deyarmin-Kroger Real Estate Assistant Manager. Also participating in the grand reopening were members of the Chamber’s Board of Directors, the Chamber’s Ambassadors, and hundreds of Kroger shoppers. The store now contains 100,000 square feet of space and has more than 200 employees.
