Shopping square footage showdown

Altanta Tomorrow's News Today has an update on the renovations/expansion at the Kroger (corner of North Decatur Road and DeKalb Industrial): "half of the store is to be complete by the end of August, the other half by September, 2015" to fit the Kroger Marketplace format.

In a previous report, Tomorrow's News Today noted that the expansion will offer a drive-through pharmacy, a larger Starbucks, additional self-checkout lanes, expanded health foods, school supplies and kitchenware sections, and two additional gas pumps.

Our area retailers are certainly bullish on growth!
