The Kroger store near VCU has gotten a major $2 million renovation at its Lombardy store located at 901 N Lombardy Street in Richmond. To mark the occasion, Councilwoman Katherine Jordan, along with Kroger Mid-Atlantic leadership and store associates, participated in a ribbon cutting.

As part of the reopening, Kroger Mid-Atlantic will make donations totaling $2,000 to four Richmond-area nonprofits that were selected by Lombardy store associates. The organizations receiving $500 donations include:

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond
  • P&G Foundation
  • Second Baptist Church Food Pantry
  • St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church Richmond Food Pantry

“Our customers have been gracious during the remodel process,” said Kenny Williams, store manager of the Lombardy Kroger. “We’re excited to offer our loyal customers an updated store with enhancements throughout.”

Highlights of the remodel include seven new self-checkout lanes, expanded adult beverage and dairy departments along with upgrades to the chicken and sushi cases in the deli department and an upgraded pharmacy department.

Other enhancements of the remodel include:

  • Updated customer restrooms
  • Updated décor and navigation throughout the store
  • New bakery tables and inline fixtures
  • New exterior signage and updated sidewalks

The store has 165 full-time and part-time associates. 30 of those associates were hired as a result of the remodel.

“Some of our most exciting days at Kroger are when we have the opportunity to open a new store or remodel an existing store,” said Allison McGee, corporate affairs manager for Kroger Mid-Atlantic. “Our whole team is celebrating this remodel and we’re excited to offer an upgraded store to our customers in Richmond.”
