New Marketplace Kroger Store Opens in Forney, Texas As Part of a $150 Million Capital Investment in Dallas-Fort Worth 

DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas - Jim Johnson, senior associate of the Houston Dallas Fort Worth Business Connections Magazine was on hand at the ribbon cutting for the new Kroger Marketplace and Kroger Fuel Center located at F.M. 548 and U.S. Highway 80 in Forney, Texas. This new Marketplace Kroger store is over 124,000 square feet. 

Kroger, the market share leader among traditional grocers in Dallas-Fort Worth–is expanding its presence in one of the largest metropolitan regions in the United States. The opening of the store in Forney, Texas is part of a commitment from Kroger to invest more than $150 million in North Texas to build five new Marketplace stores and to expand three locations, along with opening multiple fuel centers and remodeling existing properties. The growth initiative will create more than 1,700 full- and part-time career opportunities that offer competitive pay, healthcare plans, retirement options, product discounts and other incentives. 

· "Kroger is a company that is focused on smart, strategic growth and providing a highly-satisfied customer shopping experience. Dallas is a market that continues to attract new residents and retailers because of its economic strength and stability," says Bill Breetz, president of Kroger Southwest. "We've operated here since 1958. In that period, we've grown our footprint to 85 stores and 43 fuel centers. We've successfully reached this point by closely monitoring the unique needs of this market and evolving to meet the requests of our customers."
