New Kroger Marketplace will open in Portsmouth Oct. 15
The Portsmouth Midtown Kroger Marketplace, located at 1301 Frederick Blvd., will open this Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 7 a.m.
Kroger Limited Partnership, an affiliate of The Kroger Co., developed the store at the former home of I.C. Norcom High School.
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming the Kroger Marketplace to the Portsmouth community,” Portsmouth Mayor Kenny Wright said in a statement. “This store will create approximately 350 jobs and provide an opportunity for our residents to shop and work where they live. This is another step in rebuilding our city and restoring quality services in our neighborhoods.”
Similar to the Virginia Beach Marketplace, the Portsmouth store will offer shoppers more than groceries with 30,000 square feet set aside for home-store offerings ranging from apparel to home décor.
