I have news about some work going on near Kroger’s store in Rocky Mount, after several of you inquired via this blog and elsewhere about what’s going on at this site off U.S. 220.
Soon, a Kroger fuel center will go up adjacent to its store at 400 Old Franklin Turnpike.
Kroger spokesman Carl York told me today that the new fuel center should open for business by mid to late July. It will be a 10-lane gasoline center also selling diesel fuel.
Kroger’s bringing a fuel center to Rocky Mount because this store is located off the “heavily traveled” U.S. 220 corridor, York said.
There’s another Kroger fuel center planned for West Main Street in Salem. Click here to read my blog post about it.
Once the Rocky Mount gasoline station is complete, Kroger will have eight fuel centers in the Roanoke Valley.
