Kroger Marketplace store looking to come to Snellville

SNELLVILLE – The city has received applications for a 123,000-square-foot Kroger Marketplace store and fuel center located at 1000 Athens Highway at Rosebud Road. 

The case will be considered by the Planning Commission at the Oct. 27 regular meeting and is scheduled for first and second Mayor and Council readings on Nov. 9 and Dec. 12 respectively.

The store will be different than other Kroger stores near the city as it will have a clothing section, a cafe and a gas station. 

The developers have expressed a desire to be annexed into the city and notification of the annexation will be mailed to the county this week.  

There are similar Kroger stores in Athens and Gainesville.
