Kroger expanding facilities in suburbs of Cincinnati

Kroger is expanding with a new distribution center and other support facilities in Blue Ash, a suburb of Cincinnati, where its headquarters is located. The nation's second-largest retailer plans to spend $46 million over the next five years on a 375,000-sq.-ft. warehouse, and to sublease space for human resources recruiting, a pharmacy call center, and an expanded space for its digital innovation team. Part of the money will come from a 10-year job creation tax credit from the Ohio Tax Credit Authority. Kroger bought the Blue Ash distribution center from SpartanNash in April. Story
