Kroger expanding into former Kmart building in Scott Depot
PUTNAM COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) --
UPDATE 8/6/20 @ 10:15 a.m.
A Kroger spokesperson tells WSAZ the expanded new store in Scott Depot will be a traditional store, not a marketplace location.
The marketplace location would have included furniture, jewelry and more. This new location, in the former Kmart building, will still be larger than its current location, but will not include the additional merchandise.
The spokesperson said construction is set to begin later this month with an anticipated opening in the summer of 2021.
