Kroger to Invest $84 Million Into Cincinnati/Dayton Division Stores in 2024


WARREN COUNTY, OH -- Kroger’s Cincinnati/Dayton Division today announced a commitment to invest approximately $84 million across the Division’s footprint in 2024. The investment will be highlighted by the opening of the new Hamilton Township Kroger Marketplace in Warren County, OH and remodeling of 15 stores across the Division.

“This investment is yet another demonstration of the commitment Kroger makes each and every day to the customers and communities in which we serve,” said Ann Reed, Cincinnati/Dayton division president. “It also reconfirms our dedication to increasing career advancement for our associates, economic growth and supporting local producers who supply our stores with high quality products.”

The Hamilton Township Kroger Marketplace represents a $39 million investment in southwest Ohio.

The 123,000 square-foot store will include many of the features customers recognize including enhanced Produce, Deli, Bakery, Meat, Seafood, and Sushi departments; a Murray’s Cheese shop; Starbucks; a Fuel Center and apparel. It is set to open in 2024.

In 2024, Kroger will also invest approximately $45 million to renovate stores in Mt. Washington, Sharonville, Colerain, West Chester, Middletown, Kings Mills, Blue Ash, Green Township, Monfort Heights, Fairfield, Lebanon, two in Kettering, Huber Heights and Connersville, Indiana. The Cincinnati/Dayton Division annually invests approximately $30 million to improve the customer experience and increase access to fresh foods across the Division’s footprint in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.

Today, Kroger’s Cincinnati-Dayton division employs nearly 20,000 associates across Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, securing access to good-paying union jobs and providing opportunities for career growth. In addition to best-in-class training and professional development, Kroger associates can take advantage of up to $21,000 in reimbursement during their careers with Kroger for an educational pursuit of their choosing, from a GED to a Ph.D.

In addition to investing in its associates and the store experience, Kroger works closely with regional foodbanks to connect its neighbors with the food they need to thrive. In 2023, the division donated 3.5 million pounds of surplus food and more than $98,000 in funds toward ending hunger. Through a combination of strategically directed funding and donations of surplus food from its stores, the retailer is taking important steps to support those working on the front lines of the fight against hunger.
