Kroger is expanding its presence in Hampton Roads.


The Cincinnati-based grocery chain plans to open its second marketplace store in Portsmouth next fall. The first marketplace store, a one-stop shop for groceries and other general merchandise, opened in Virginia Beach earlier this year.


The $21.5 million project is expected to yield up to 350 jobs. The 124,000-square-foot store will include food and general merchandise like kitchenware, jewelry, bed and bath items. It will also feature a drive through pharmacy and fuel center.


Kroger purchased 13 acres at the former I.C. Norcom School site at Frederick Boulevard and Turnpike Road for the project.
