The Kroger on Rutgers Street in Roanoke near Town Square Shopping Center is getting ready for a remodel.
Kroger is getting ready to spend about $400,000 to upgrade the store’s decor and raise the ceiling height, according to a building permit filed in Roanoke.
The remodel was described by Kroger spokesman Carl York as “a new in-store décor update,” which he said should include “a new design and color scheme on the interior walls.”
In addition, the ceiling will be raised to 14-feet, York said. The building permit says that the perimeter ceiling will be raised to match the height of the ceiling in the center of the store.
The building permit also said the existing vinyl composition tile will be removed and the concrete slabs underneath will be dyed and polished.
York said the company is still in the planning process and he doesn’t know when the work might start or finish. The store will remain open during the remodel, he said.
The Rutgers location most recently added a 7,150 square foot building next to the grocery store that houses a Virginia ABC liquor store, Firehouse Subs and Supercuts. It also recently installed a drive through kiosk for its pharmacy.
