The following are some relevant facts regarding Kroger’s decision to not build a store in Colonial Heights and the old courthouse property:
"After careful thought, we have decided that our planned Colonial Heights store will not move forward to the construction phase. We understand that our decision to not build the Colonial Heights store may seem confusing or cause frustration and we sincerely apologize to those who anticipated our store opening. Our company has made a decision to focus our efforts on improving the customer experience at existing stores through renovations and innovative technology.
We have truly enjoyed working with the City of Colonial Heights and the entire community over the past few years. Kroger will work closely with the City of Colonial Heights to help find a new, viable tenant for the property and cover the cost of demolishing the courthouse. Thank you for your patience.”
