INDIANAPOLIS -- Supermarket chain The Kroger Co. continued with plans to add fuel centers on its properties in its central division with last week’s opening of its 54th gas location adjacent to the food store at 8150 Rockville Road, which followed two other openings this year, IndyStar.com reported.
The Cincinnati-based grocer’s central division opened 24 new fuel centers since 2003, and will open at least an additional 10 fuel centers this year, the report stated. Along with the 10 new fueling stations come 60 jobs with at least $6 million in capital investment.
The 10 stores are being built at an accelerated pace, division president Bob Moeder told the Web site.
"Our fuel center strategy is in response to our customers’ expectation that we provide as many products and services as possible at our stores," Moeder said. "While our fuel centers do provide the highest quality fuel at the most competitive price, our true motivation is customer convenience."
Kroger’s central division operates 153 food stores, 128 pharmacies and 54 fuel centers operating under five banners, according to the report.
