The Kroger Delta Division officially announced its plans Thursday to upgrade the Oxford store along with some additional details about the expansion.

Earlier this month, Hottytoddy.com reported that plans for the expansion garnered approval from both the Oxford Planning Commission and Oxford Board of Aldermen; however, no information on its start date was available.

On Thursday, in a press release, Kroger announced the remodeling is set to begin in February 2019.

Once the expansion is complete, the store on University Avenue will grow from 57,857 square feet to 109,448 square feet.

The newly modeled store will have a Starbucks and a sushi station. Grocery pick-up formerly known as ClickList, will be included as well as a double drive-thru for the pharmacy.

“We want to thank our Oxford residents for being patient with us as we work to provide a new Kroger shopping experience,” said Scot Hendricks, president of Kroger Delta Division. “This has been a long time coming. We are very excited about the upgrades and we believe our shoppers will love it as well.”

Each department will be expanded and significant changes will be made to the store’s floral department and the deli/bakery areas.

The fueling center located at the southwest corner of the site will be expanded to include four new pumps (eight new fueling positions). In addition, the easternmost driveway is proposed to be relocated approximately 130 feet to the east, to coincide with existing Booker Road.

A new traffic signal is planned for the intersection of Booker Road and the relocated driveway.

The now-empty strip mall next to the existing grocery store will be demolished and construction will begin on the expansion.
