Kroger Replacing Marketplace Store In Plano, TX

Groundbreaking of a Kroger marketplace in Plano, Texas

The Kroger Co. has broken ground on a Kroger Marketplace store in Plano, Texas, that will replace the location across the street at 9700 Coit Road.

The nearly 124,000 square-foot store, which will be about 55,000 square feet larger than the present site, is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2024. It is anticipated to create 100-150 new jobs in the community.

Plano is the second of three new Kroger Marketplace stores announced earlier this year. They will be the first stores built in North Texas since the company opened its location in 2019  at 1801 North Lake Forest Drive in McKinney. 

Kroger has been serving North Texas for more than 65 years. In 1994, the grocer opened its first location in Plano, at 7100 Independence Pkwy.

Developed by Ridgemont Commercial Construction, the new store will feature various businesses and dining options.

“We first opened our store on Coit Road in Plano in 2005,” said Keith Shoemaker, president of Kroger’s Dallas division. “And nearly 20 years later, we look forward to welcoming the community to our new and improved Marketplace store across the street.”

The new store will feature a Starbucks kiosk, Murray’s Cheese counter, fuel center with 18 fueling positions and a grab-and-go kiosk for beverages and snacks. It also will include a full-service grocery, pharmacy and expanded general merchandise departments for outdoor living products, toys, electronics and home goods.

“Kroger is making an investment that will continue to benefit the city of Plano for many years to come and will provide opportunity for new jobs and economic growth,” Shoemaker said.

In 2022, Kroger opened a fulfillment center in South Dallas to focus solely on the growing demand for grocery delivery service. With spoke facilities constructed in Austin, San Antonio and Oklahoma City, the company has added the capability to serve an increasing digital audience and more remote communities without the need for brick-and-mortar stores.
