Piedmont Heights Kroger Slated For $1.5 MM Interior Remodel
The Kroger adjacent Ansley Mall, at 1700 Monroe Dr. NE in the Piedmont Heights neighborhood of Atlanta, will soon begin interior renovations to the tune of $1,500,000.
Planned improvements to the 64,788 square-foot supermarket include replacement and relocation of sales floor fixtures, display cases, some deli-prep modifications, and the relocation of the in-house pharmacy.
Kroger will remain open and in operation during the remodel.
“The contractors will work on the renovations overnight so there will be no change in opening hours and no disruption for our customers,” a Kroger associate shared with What Now Atlanta over the phone this week.
Construction is expected to span 24 weeks, starting in April 2020 and ending in November.
