Former Kroger Superstores Operated by another chain?

Post by KMJonOBR » 06 May 2009 22:45

Does anyone know of any Former Kroger "greenhouse" stores or my personal favorite, the "superstores," that are now operated by another grocery chain??

My personal favorite is "County Market" in Grove City, PA... this still just screams greenhouse effect outside.

I like the Kessel's chain which took over a few Superstores after Kroger vacated them and in the end they became Kroger, AGAIN, due to Kroger's buyout of the Kessel chain.

There are actually tons of greenhouse and superstores operating in some form or another, and there has been discussion of many of them already; you can find some of these by using the search function.

As to your specific question about stores now operating under other grocery chains, here are several former greenhouses I can think of right off the top of my head:

Giant Eagle, Cedar Avenue, Pittsburgh
Foodland, Gauley Bridge WV (I think that's the town)
Aldi, Waynesburg PA
Earthfare, Battleground Avenue, Greensboro NC
Food Lion, West Market Street, Greensboro NC
Bi-Lo, Albemarle Road, Charlotte NC

Note that I limited my list to those operated by other grocery chains, per your request. The list gets a lot longer if you also include non-grocers.
