New Kroger to open in Smyrna, brings 100 new jobs

Posted: Updated:

Kroger will celebrate the Grand Opening of their new Smyrna store on Jan. 25.

Kroger's new 93,000-square-foot store on S. Cobb Drive will bring approximately 100 jobs to the area.

The new store will feature a fuel center, Starbucks, bistro and in-store dining, a drive-thru pharmacy, and Fifth Third Bank.

"Our existing South Cobb Drive Kroger store served the Smyrna community for 28 years," said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications and public relations for Kroger's Atlanta Division. "We are proud to open this new location – and bring new jobs to the community – as we continue to serve our loyal customers with more convenient amenities, like the Kroger Fuel Center."

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. and opening day celebrations and will feature the Campbell High School Drumline, Freddie the Falcon appearance, a balloon artist, and face painting.

During the ceremony, Kroger will also recognize five local schools – including Belmont Springs Elementary, Brown Elementary, Kings Springs Elementary, Griffin Middle School and Campbell High School – to welcome its partners in education.
