Kroger recently announced that it is moving the headquarters of its mid-Atlantic division. Encompassing over 100 locations across Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio, the new headquarters will move to the Richmond, Virginia, area.
Allison McGee, Corporate Affairs Manager for the Mid-Atlantic division, told news source Richmond Times-Dispatch the company is “... still finalizing our relocation plans.” Kroger did not report how many positions will be available at its new offices.
Spanning 26,000 square feet, the office is planned to be fully operational by the start of 2021.
Warehouse operations, logistics, and Kroger’s Roanoke district office will continue on in their current home despite the move of the main HQ. The division is currently headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia. 100 employees working in the divisional offices in Roanoke are being offered jobs with the company, including options to relocate to the new offices in the Richmond area, according to the news source.
When asked about the move, the retailer stated the location is “better equipped and positioned” to serve and support stores in all of the division’s markets, and this will better complement the bolstered growth Kroger has implemented in the Richmond and Hampton Roads regions.
