Construction is scheduled to begin Aug. 22, said Anne Jenkins, a Kroger spokeswoman. The pumps, which will add eight lanes, will be ready for fueling in early October, she said. Work will limit the number of open lanes the first two weeks of construction, but the fuel center will remain open.
Jenkins wouldn’t say whether there are plans to add more pumps to any other Kroger gas stations.
I like filling up at Kroger because I can do it when I’m done grocery shopping, and it saves me money, but I find that I often encounter a line at the pump. So, I was pleased to read in Rebecca Holland’s Shoptimist blog that my Kroger discount card is accepted at Shell stations.
Do you have a gas station preference?
