I have been hearing about the different Kroger Marketplace Stores opening up across the county and waiting patiently for the one that I had heard was coming to Michigan.
I am super excited to say the wait is just about over. Michigan is getting their very first Kroger Marketplace Store at 14945 23 Mile Rd Shelby Township, MI 48315.
What is Kroger Marketplace?
Along with the huge variety of fresh foods you expect, Kroger Marketplace® is the only store you need for Home Fashion and Décor, Bed and Bath, Kitchen and Small Appliances, Home Office and Toys. Offering an abundance of the items you need for every part of your life, Kroger Marketplace® is your one-stop shopping destination. Find what you need right inside and make your life a little easier.
Oh, and did I mention they have a Starbucks?!!
Some of the things you can expect to see when you step inside Kroger Marketplace include:
Murray’s Cheese Shop
Murray’s Cheese has been in business since 1940 and started moving into the grocery market as a way to offer cheeses to more people. It opened the first Kroger outlet six years ago in Cincinnati, where Kroger is headquartered.
Murray’s Cheese is a well-respected cheese store in Greenwich Village of New York, with another location at Grand Central Terminal. At the Shelby Twp. Kroger Marketplace customers will have access to more than 200 specialty cheeses, handpicked by Murray’s Cheese.
Over the past three years, Murray’s has trained more than 1,000 Kroger associates in their “red jacket training” program. Kroger staffs each location with a cheesemaster and cheese associates who have received extensive cheese service training from Murray’s. Before each store opening, the cheesemaster and store managers travel to New York City for on-the-ground training at Murray’s Cheese flagship location.
If you don’t know anything about cheese or if you know everything about cheese, it will be fun to shop at Kroger and learn from the cheese experts in the Deli department. It’s a choose-your-own adventure at the cheese counter. Murray’s philosophy is taste before you buy so you’re welcome to swing by anytime to try a new cheese with us.
The deli department offers a fresh, sushi, hot soup, and an olive island.
In the Bakery department, customers have access to a state-of-the-art, user-friendly bread slicer for fresh, Artisan bread made daily.
