Kroger Mid-Atlantic will relocate its division office from Roanoke to Richmond, Virginia. The move will create more than 70 jobs, a combination of relocations and new hires.
“For Kroger the move will establish division operations closer to its larger markets and better position it to serve and support all markets throughout the Mid-Atlantic, according to a company news release. "Henrico County and Kroger collaborated to find a new office location for the Mid-Atlantic division which will be located at 140 East Shore Drive in Glen Allen, an unincorporated area of Henrico County in north Richmond. Kroger Mid-Atlantic plans to have its Richmond office in operation in early 2021.”
“We’re excited for this transition for our company and Henrico County has been an excellent partner throughout the past few months,” said Paula Ginnett, president of Kroger Mid-Atlantic. “We’ve worked to make this as seamless as possible for our team members and we’re thrilled that the relocation will bring new jobs to the Richmond area.”
“The Three Chopt District and all of Henrico County are excited to welcome Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic Division Headquarters to Innsbrook,” says Chairman of the Henrico Board of Supervisors Tommy Branin. “Kroger has been a part of many peoples’ lives in Henrico for many years, and the addition of the new executives and employees to our community is fantastic.”
Kroger Mid-Atlantic entered the Richmond market in 2000 when it acquired the 10 Hannaford grocery stores. Since then, its presence has grown to 18 stores, including four Marketplace stores and 16 fuel centers.
One of the most geographically expansive divisions in the Kroger Family of Companies, Kroger Mid-Atlantic operates 110 stores in five states, including Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio and employs about 18,000 associates.
